The Clientele On World Cafe

Drawing from any number of '60s pop bands whose names start with the word "The," The Clientele has always evoked autumnal romps through the English countryside. On its fourth album, Bonfires on the Heath, the band's music hasn't changed a whole lot, but it's a bit more refined.

Led by Alasdair MacLean's warm voice, and now aided by the backing vocals and multi-instrumental skills of Mel Draisey, The Clientele performs its perfectly precise chamber-pop on World Cafe.
