David Dye http://publicradiotulsa.org en He's My Brother, She's My Sister On World Cafe http://publicradiotulsa.org/post/hes-my-brother-shes-my-sister-world-cafe Joining us in the studio for hour two of Tuesday's <em>World Cafe</em> is the Los Angeles band He's My Brother, She's My Sister. As the name implies, lead vocalists Robert and Rachel Kolar are indeed siblings.<p>Along with three other band members, the two have been crafting an eclectic mix of theatrical folk, garage, and even vaudeville-influenced music since 2010. After putting out a couple of singles, He's My Brother, She's My Sister released its debut album last year; it's titled <em>Nobody Dances in This Town</em>.

On their fifth album, <em>7 Cities</em>, they've adopted the loose theme of the explorer Coronado's search for the seven cities of gold — which, not so coincidentally, took the conquistador right into their home territory.<p>After meeting at an open-mic night, Aaron Moreland and Dustin Arbuckle discovered a mutual love of Mississippi Delta blues.

Now titled <em>Back to Forever</em>, the singer's second record is due out Sept. 10; it comes three years after the release of her debut<em>, Catching a Tiger</em>. Lissie's new songs emphasize her observations of the world around her<em>.

His songs are widely hailed as a return to the traditional songwriting of Tom Jobim and Caetano Veloso. But his style, and his background, lead many to call Jorge a hero of life on Rio's streets.

He has now shifted to a more acoustic, folk sound, with a voice that is still reminiscent of his past punk days.
