World Cafe Next: Emil Friis
This week's World Cafe: Next artist is a Danish singer-songwriter named Emil Friis, who's just released a dark, vibe-driven album called Sand In Your Eyes. Friis originally wrote this music for a French gangster film that didn't pan out before it became his new album.
Friis aims for a combination of Ennio Morricone's dusty landscapes and Lee Hazlewood's vocals. Hear and download two of his songs here, or through the World Cafe podcast.
