Reigning Sound - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

Formed in 2001 by Greg Cartwright, Reigning Sound has gone through many line-up changes and sonic shifts over the years. One thing that has remained consistent is Cartwright’s skillful musicianship, which he’s lent to a variety of other projects. You may be familiar with his early '90s garage punk band, The Oblivians, or his work with the bands Compulsive Gamblers and Detroit Cobras. Reigning Sound is his main focus though, and with they recently finished a new album called Shattered. The record is a thoughtful and rousing collection of songs that blend Greg's love of rock and soul.

Today at 3pm, Dennis Elsas will premiere a brand new song from Damien Rice. It's been eight years since this FUV fave released a collection of new material. Now we only have to wait until November 11th for the album My Favourite Faded Fantasy, which was produced by Rice and Rick Rubin. There are also a few NYC tour dates to look forward to (October 16 & 18 at The Box; October 17 at Warsaw), although they quickly sold-out. In the meantime, Damien has offered up a Public Radio Premiere of his new song "I Don't Want To Change You," and it comes your way on FUV this afternoon. (Stream the song via All Songs Considered).
