Wild Beasts

Wild Beasts - FUV Live - 2014

by Alisa Ali

Wild Beasts' latest album, Present Tense, is the British band's fourth full-length release. The new record showcases the ongoing evolution of the band with the addition of more synths and less guitar. During this episode of The Alternate Side in Session, I talk with the band about this sonic shift and they play some of the new material as well.

UKNY On FUV For January 11

by Kara Manning

There are a lot of fine British albums scheduled to come out this winter and tonight on UKNY on FUV at 11, a taste of upcoming and recently released albums from Bombay Bicycle Club, Wild Beasts (pictured), Burial, Patterns, Jimi Goodwin (of Doves) and Snowbird, the new Anglo-American duo of Simon Raymonde, ex of Cocteau Twins, and Stephanie Dosen.

The Commonwealth Cut comes from a band based in frozen Manitoba, a province that reached weather infamy recently by matching Mars in dramatically subzero temperatures.
