CD of the Week

WFUV CD of the Week: The Mavericks

by Carmel Holt

The Mavericks are back! Eight years since their last album, and twenty-two since their first, In Time is a gratifying return. It’s bursting at the seams with passion and desire, delivered with The Mavericks’ signature combination of Cuban rhythms, country, and even tango, topped by Raul Malo’s sublime vocals. Don’t miss this week’s CD Of The Week, The Mavericks’ In Time, uninterrupted, tonight at 8 on 90.7 FM and wfuv.org.

WFUV CD of the Week: Erin McKeown

by Carmel Holt

Being independent is admirable, but it’s what you do with that independence that defines your work. Erin McKeown seems to know this. She is an independent artist in the truest sense of the word, especially now, as she strikes out on her own with her self-released seventh album, Manifestra. What Erin has done with her independence over the years is to experiment with musical genres (folk, jazz standards, pop, rock), mixing and matching them as different vehicles for delivering her always-smart, honest lyrics, and therefore defying easy categorization.

Tonight at 8, Holidays Rule! The WFUV CD of the Week

by Carmel Holt

Some of us get totally into the incessant holiday music that is coming out of every speaker this time of year, and some of us…well, not so much. So it’s refreshing and exciting when our favorite artists breathe new life into the holiday songs we love, and we can still discover something new to get us into the spirit of the season. Enter the new compilation called Holidays Rule, featuring artists we know and love, and some less familiar, but equally fantastic. Everyone from Paul McCartney and Rufus Wainwright, to The Shins, Calexico, The Head & The Heart, and Andrew Bird.
