Good things come in threes with Ra Ra Riot. The indie rock quintet released their third album, Beta Love, this year. The album is influenced by sci-fi author William Gibson and inventor-futurist Ray Kurzweil. It is also the first LP from the group since the departure of founding member/cellist, Alexandra Lawn.

Ra Ra Riot stopped by The Current studio for the third time to play three songs and chat with Mac Wilson about the new record.

Songs performed: "I Shut Off," "For Once" and "Dance With Me."
