Video: Caroline Smith on The Current's Coffee Break on the Road

At the end of each month, The Current's Morning Show loads up the 89.3 The Current van and takes a bunch of pastries and a big dispenser of coffee to area workplaces that love The Current. (If you want to get in on this racket, send an email to coffeebreak@thecurrent.org with the reason why your office deserves a treat.)

And every once in a while, we're lucky enough to bring an artist along with us. This time, the timing and routing worked out perfectly for us to have Caroline Smith accompany us as we went to Punk Rawk Labs, a Minneapolis company that develops healthy foods.

Caroline performed some tracks off her new album, Half About Being a Woman, including "Bloodstyle," captured on the above video by Nate Ryan.

Listen to The Current's Morning Show every weekday to hear the Coffee Break theme of the day. You can submit your requests, then stay tuned to hear the day's Coffee Break playlist at 9:30 a.m.
