Philip Selway - FUV Live - 2014

by Alisa Ali

Already known for his drumming and background vocal work with Radiohead, Philip Selway is finally being recognized for his songwriting talents. In 2010, he released his solo debut, Familial, which was a stirring set of largely acoustic-based songs. He is back now with his sophomore effort, Weatherhouse, and the new album shows the great growth and depth of his musicianship. The new album has a much broader sonic palette with more layers and textures than that of his previous solo work. The record actually feels like a natural extension of the Radiohead sound.

Sean Rowe - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

An avid naturalist and songwriter from upstate New York, Sean Rowe has been capturing audiences at crowded bars, open mics, and theaters for more than a decade with his baritone voice and prolific songwriting. After spending most of this year performing in friends' living rooms across the country, Rowe was inspired to make an album based on his experiences on this intimate tour. The result is his fourth full-length album, Madman, which features his most upbeat and accessible songs to date.

The Kooks - FUV Live - 2014

by Eric Holland

The Kooks have a new drummer, Alexis Nunez, who has brought a dance-a-bility factor to the band. That's according to Luke Pritchard, the very naturalistic rock star who sings and writes the songs. The fourth Kooks record is dramatically different than its three brothers. As the original quartet from Brighton has matured into the core duo and a freshly locked-in rhythm section, the songs from Listen demand compliance. In this session at our Bronx studios captured the afternoon before their show at The Paramount on Long Island, Luke nods to some funk inspiration.

King Tuff - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

King Tuff’s third album is called Black Moon Spell, and frontman Kyle Thomas has confirmed that it contains backwards messages. Sonically, this album sees Kyle (a.k.a. King Tuff) moving more solidly into '70s rock territory, at times channeling Marc Bolan and even a touch of early Black Sabbath.

Fink - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

This UK-based band is led by former trip-hop DJ and now singer-songwriter Fin Greenall. He has been putting out music for more than a decade under the name Fink with the help from drummer Tim Thornton and bassist Guy Whittaker. The band recently released its fifth album, Hard Believer, and it's stacked with shimmering vocals, folk guitars and hypnotic rhythms. Fink recently stopped by Studio A to play and talk about the new songs. We’ll hear that conversation and performance during this episode of FUV Live.
