Coffee Break: European Vacation - Brighton!

Bonobo's Bambro Koyo Ganda EP (Neil Krug/Courtesy of the artist, via NPR)

Listen. The morning crew has no fabulous vacations planned this summer. We will be here in the studio all summer spinning tunes, eating breakfast sandwiches, and giving you always learning moments.

But you know what? We can be in charge of our own destiny. Let's go on a MUSICAL VACATION this week. We're taking you to Europe. Second stop - Brighton!

What bands do you want to hear for today's 9:30 Coffee Break - and this leg of our European tour - that hail from Brighton?

Brighton is a seaside town on the south coast of England, about 70 miles south of London and is a popular destination for day trips from London with its diverse communities, cultural, music and arts scene and its large LGBT population.
