Question of the Day: Is That What You're Wearing?

by Corny O'Connell

Fashion Week is underway in New York City. It's a parade of runway shows, glitterati and glamorous parties. Are you a dedicated follower of fashion? Or more of a JCPennyista? Either way we need a collection of songs for fashion week. Sketch out your ideas below and we'll spin a set after 9am. 

Here's what we played:

Bob Dylan "Leopard-skin Pill-box Hat"

Chrissie Hynde "Dark Sunglasses"

The Neighborhood "Sweater Weather"

Delta Spirit - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

Creating a unique cross between indie rock and alt-country, Delta Spirit has been gracing us with their sound for almost a decade and they’re releasing their fourth album, Into the Wide today. On the new album, front man Matthew Vasquez focuses on a more narrative, folk-like storytelling through his lyrics. The songs are a bit darker than previous releases, but the album certainly shows the tremendous growth of the band and is arguably their best yet. Delta Spirit recently stopped by Studio A to play some of the new material and talk about it. We’ll hear that conversation and performance on this episode of FUV Live.

Jenai Huff and Eugene Ruffolo - Sunday Breakfast - 2014

by John Platt
Jeremy Rainer

Jenai Huff and Eugene Ruffolo have several things in common - they're good friends, they're fine NYC singer-songwriters (though Jenai is originally from California), and they've both worked with producer extraordinaire Ben Wisch (Marc Cohn, Patty Larkin, Jonatha Brooke, et al) and drummer Chris Marshak. They came together in Studio A for a session with Ben and Chris that showed their wonderful chemistry.
