New Music Monday is a collection of the best new releases in music each week. We share them with you every Monday, every hour on WFUV.
Caitlin Rose- The Stand-In
Rose’s country sound may not be what you’re used to hearing on WFUV, but the twist she puts on the genre works perfectly for us. Think Patsy Cline meets Lucinda Williams.
The Howlin’ Brothers- Howl
These guys met at Ithaca College in upstate New York and are all originally from the north, but they still manage to find an authentic Bluegrass feel. Check out our feature with them at SXSW last week to get an idea.
BOY- Mutual Friends
BOY is a Hamburg-based duo made up of two girls who claim to be best friends. This debut album channels that friendship; singer Valeska Steiner called the record “a good friend!”
James Maddock- Another Life
How can we not play the new James Maddock record, right? The British Americana singer employed a pledge campaign, which apparently had great success, to fund this one.
