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>.

Costello and The Roots unveiled their collaborative album <em>Wise Up Ghost</em> last week — it's a project they'd made in semi-secrecy.<p>Both artists have rich histories as thriving collaborators.

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.

The product of a year and a half of tinkering, their recent <em>Optica</em> is significantly lighter-sounding than its predecessors.<p>On this installment of <em>World Cafe</em>, hear the group discuss how it navigated new musical experiments on the album, and how all of its members finally came to agree on how <em>Optica</em> should sound.

King over a mutual love for '60s music. The two first started recording together just for fun, blending folk-rock and subtle psychedelia into a joint project they call The Olms.<p>Named for a small cave-dwelling amphibian that adapts itself to living in complete darkness, King and Yorn say they didn't necessarily expect their music to see the light of day. On this installment of <em>World Cafe</em>, hear a few retro-leaning tracks from the pair's self-titled album.
