by WFUV Staff
Fiona Apple (courtesy of the artist,

Vin Scelsa finds himself on a winding path on tonight's "Idiot's Delight"® at 8, an unpaved road strewn with tangential asides and deeper meditations. As his guides, Vin will bring along the passionate voices of Stevie Wonder, Annie Lennox and Joe South. He might even howl at the moon with Fiona Apple (pictured) or await December's first snowfall with Sufjan Stevens and Over The Rhine. Wherever Vin might go tonight on "Idiot's Delight,"® you know it's a journey you'll want to be on too.

Old 97s - "Let's Get Drunk and Get it On"

Tom Waits - "The Piano Has Been Drinking (Not Me)"

Cymbals Eat Guitars - FUV Live - 2014

by Alisa Ali
This Staten Island quartet first made waves in 2009 with their critically acclaimed, self-released debut, Why There Are Mountains. That auspicious first record reached back to a '90s indie rock sound, but also pushed that texture into fresh territories. On the band's third and most recent album Lose, there's a noticeable lyrical maturation, courtesy of singer and guitarist Joseph D’Agostino, and bolder sonic strides from the rest of the band.
Cymbals Eat Guitars stopped by Studio A to play some of the new songs and talk with me about the process of making this most recent album.  We’ll hear that conversation and performance during this episode of The Alternate Side in Session.
