World Cafe Next: The Outdoor Type

As The Outdoor Type, songwriter Zack Buchanan draws on his love of fellow Australian bands like The Church and The Go-Betweens.
Melbourne, Australia's The Outdoor Type is the project of songwriter Zack Buchanan. His music draws on his love of some '80s bands who just happen to be Australian as well — bands like The Church, The Go-Betweens and Australian icon Paul Kelly. Those influences are translated into something new on Buchanan's forthcoming album, The Outdoor Type, which follows a great EP released in 2016. Hear two tracks in this segment.
