Barnaby Bright Shares Some Love With WNKU

Brooklyn-based indie folk rock duo Barnaby Bright, mix several unique instruments, including an African instrument in the tune, If I Came Back As a Song. The couple's lyrics are brilliantly clever and charming, and present themselves with such warmth, especially on stage together. It's apparent their connection fuels their music and perhaps much of its success.

The Pinstripes Live on WNKU

Caroline Tompkins

Winners of the 2007 Cincinnati Entertainment Award for Best World Band, The Pinstripes don’t merely play Ska and Reggae — they inhabit the sound like it’s a ramshackle house that’s keeping them alive. Tight but never slick, fun but never goofy, intense but never serious, The Pinstripes (a hard-touring band with a hard-won following) combine Ska, Reggae, Dub and Soul to create something that’s genuinely lacking in a great deal of contemporary music: joy.

This session, from Dec. 12, 2011, is the second in our Vintage Cafe series, where we revisit some of our best studio performances.

The Head and the Heart was formed after five twentysomethings met at an open mic night in Seattle.

"None of us knew each other beforehand," recalls singer Josiah Johnson. "I just happened to go to the same open mic. [Jonathan Russell] played some songs and I played some songs, then we started talking and hanging out."
