Eels - FUV Live - 2014

by Alisa Ali

Eels is fronted by prolific singer-songwriter Mark Oliver Everett, who is better known as E. Over the years he has gained a reputation for telling colorful stories through his lyrics, but rarely singing about himself or his own experiences. On the new album The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett, E gets personal and honest, writing songs that share his life story as well as his plans for the future. Recently, E and two of his bandmates stopped by Studio A to perform some of the new songs and to talk with me about the latest release.

On this episode of FUV Live, we head to Electric Lady Studios for a performance by Nashville-based Nikki Lane. She and her band performed a live set featuring songs from her Dan Auerbach-produced sophomore album, All Or Nothin'. I also had the chance to talk with Nikki about her musical path, which included some time spent in New York City.

Natalie Merchant's sixth solo album is her first record of original lyrics and music in thirteen years, but she certainly hasn't been resting on her laurels. Since her album Motherland, Natalie has released a double album of adapted poetry called Leave Your Sleep as well as an album of traditional folk songs called The House Carpenter’s Daughter. She has also been very involved in the anti-fracking fight, made a movie about domestic violence, worked with the NY State Council on the Arts and had a child. All the while, she was collecting songs for her new self-titled release.

Bob Mould - FUV Live - 2014

by Russ Borris

Bon Mould is considered one of the most influential songwriters of the past few decades, and the music he made with with Hüsker Dü and Sugar inspired bands like The Pixies and Nirvana. On June 3rd of this year, Mould returned with his 10th solo album, Beauty & Ruin, and the energetic yet melancholy songs feature universal subject matter from loss to acceptance. Mould recently stopped by Studio A to play some of the new material, and he spoke with me about his songwriting process and his methods of maintaining longevity in the music business.
