Horse Thief's shimmering psychedelic folk broods with an edgy, gnarled beauty, as deftly realized on the Oklahoma quintet's impressive debut, Fear in Bliss. Horse Thief will be joining Happyness, Son Little and Elle King for WFUV and The Alternate Side's CMJ Music Marathon showcase, FUV Live at CMJ, on Tuesday, October 21, at Rockwood Music Hall from 5-9p.m. EDT.

The showcase, the very essence of FUV's mission of music discovery, will be broadcast live on 90.7FM WFUV, also streaming online. In addition, a 10-inch vinyl EP, featuring one song from each band, will be recorded and pressed at Rockwood Music Hall that night and given away to FUV listeners at the event. FUV Live at CMJ is supported by Squarespace.

Lucinda Williams
Highway 20 Records

Lucinda Williams fans can rejoice. Her new album, Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone, is a 20-song, 100-minute Lucinda-bonanza, spread over two discs. The new collection, a follow-up to 2011's Blessed, is the result of a fertile period of creativity that netted enough material for three albums.

The Barr Brothers - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

This Montreal based quartet is led by brothers Andrew and Brad Barr. Originally based in Boston under the name The Slip, the brothers relocated to Montreal after a fateful gig where Andrew met his future wife and band manager. Now almost 10 years later, Andrew and Brad are about to release their second album as The Barr Brothers. It's called Sleeping Operator and includes guest appearances by some of their Canadian neighbors: Richard Reed Parry from Arcade Fire, The Luyas and Patrick Watson’s band. The album also benefits from the talents of Malian artist Bassekou Kouyate.
