Jim White, the Southern-born filmmaker turned singer-songwriter turned novelist, has a new album — or at least half of one. Jim now lives in Athens, Ga., where he's become friends with a longtime local bluegrass group, The Packway Handle Band. When they asked him to produce their album, he said yes, but only if he could join the band and have them do some of his tunes. That's where the name of this project, Jim White vs. The Packway Handle Band, comes from.

The numbers say a lot: 100 million albums sold, 33 gold records, including 18 before he was 13 years old.

There is a quote on the website of our World Cafe: Next band this week, Monophonics. It's from Al Bell, the legendary one-time head of Stax Records: "One of the best live soul bands I have ever seen!"

Actually, Al only got it half right. There are many more sides to the Monophonics. They are a psychedelic soul band from the San Francisco Bay Area that draws on many genres from the '60s and '70s, including psychedelic rock.
