Highasakite - FUV Live - 2014

by Kara Manning

Like a brooding Nordic Noir novel, Highasakite's second album, Silent Treatment, brims with menacing chapters: tracks bearing bellicose titles like "The Hand Grenade," "Iran" and "Darth Vader" don't promise a sweet outcome. But the Norwegian quintet's sound, as darkly conceived as it might be, is elevated by lushly cinematic, often upbeat arrangements, urged forward by Ingrid Helene Håvik's pensively pretty vocals. It's not surprising that Bon Iver's Justin Vernon is a fan (or that Highasakite recently covered one of his songs).

Justin Townes Earle - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

Returning with his fifth album, Single Mothers, Justin Townes Earle reflects on the romances of his youth and his relationship with his mother, who had raised him on her own. With a three-piece band, the record’s gentle and warm sound provides a comforting feel to Justin's complex and emotional lyrics. Justin recently stopped by Studio A to talk about and play us some of the new songs. We’ll hear that conversation and performance during this episode of FUV Live.
