Guest host Lauren Raham brings the crew genre-bending New York theatrical group Kid Creole and the Coconuts. Accessible yet abstruse, KCC didn't find the success stateside of pop acts nor the cult cred of fellow New York artists in their circle.

Co-host Jeremy brings the oldest record on the show to date and maybe the most experimental. Yma's voice spans from low growls to glittering bird whispers over the problematic and fantastical tapestry of exotica.
