Nils Lofgren - FUV Live - 2015

by Dennis Elsas

Nils Lofgren is probably the only person who has played guitar or piano with all of these bands: Neil Young’s Crazy Horse, Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band and Ringo’s All-Starr’s, and his new 9-CD/1-DVD box set, Face the Music, chronicles everything else about his amazing forty-five plus year career.

Butchers Blind - Sunday Breakfast - 2014

by John Platt
Jeremy Rainer
Butchers Blind is a rockin' quartet from Bellrose, Queens (right near the Nassau County border) who came together because of a shared love of music. They were inspired by Wilco, not just musically, but by a line in "The Late Greats" that gave them their name:

The Asteroids Galaxy Tour - FUV Live - 2015

by Alisa Ali

Back in 2009, I heard a clip of an amazing song in an Apple commercial. After some internet sleuthing, I discovered that the song, "Around the Bend" was by a Danish band called The Asteroids Galaxy Tour.  I got my grubby hands on their debut album, Fruit, and quickly fell in love with their quirky style which blended horns, bass, drums, guitars and pianos with out-of-this-world samples and the unique voice of frontwoman, Mette Lindberg. Later that year, Mette and her partner Lars Iverson stopped by Studio A with their band and performed a very loud, very funky version of their song, "The Golden Age". 

I've since been following their career and enjoying their music and I was very pleased to see that they have a new album! It's called Bring Us Together and it does that very thing.  The songs on there are outrageously catchy and fun. When FUV heard that Mette was going to be in NYC again, we invited her and her bandmates up to Studio A again and much to my delight, she chatted with me and played a couple of the new songs.

Chuck Prophet - FUV Live - 2015

by Carmel Holt

On an album that could have been titled “Invasion of the Tech Monsters”, Chuck Prophet follows up his 2012 celebration of San Francisco, Temple Beautiful, with observations on the changing effects that the tech community has had on his beloved city. Night Surfer is Prophet's thirteenth studio effort and it stands in contrast to his last album, not only lyrically but sonically. While Temple Beautiful was mostly a stripped-back affair, Night Surfer plays like an old, favorite Rolling Stones album, complete with horns and strings.

The Apache Relay - FUV Live - 2014

by Eric Holland

To open their self-titled second album earlier this year, The Apache Relay recorded something of a masterpiece in the song "Katie Queen of Tennessee."  Singer/guitarist Michael Ford Jr. and Brett Moore (keys/guitar/mandolin) were quick to share credit with the string arranger Jimmy Haskee (who has an Emmy and three Grammys) and Johnathan Rice (yes, the one from Jenny and Johnny and his own career), who they cold-called after getting out to L.A. to record at Fairfax Recordings.
