In the years since the band first formed at Syracuse University, Ra Ra Riot has constantly evolved and matured. For its latest album, Need Your Light, the band worked with Rostam Batmanglij, formerly of Vampire Weekend. (Batmanglij has also played with Ra Ra Riot's lead singer, Wesley Miles, in the band Discovery.)

In this session, hear Ra Ra Riot perform three songs from the album live as David Dye chats with Miles and bassist Matthieu Santos.
