Landlady - FUV Live - 2014

by Alisa Ali

Brooklyn's Landlady was formed in 2011 by multi-instrumentalist Adam Shatz. You may already be familiar with Shatz since he plays in a bunch of different bands. To name just a few of the prolific musician's endeavors, he's part of the Afrobeat collective Zongo Junction, the jazz improvisation band Father Figures and the soulfully psychedelic The Shoe Ins. In addition, Adam has played with country punks Those Darlins and Philly's explosively quirky Man Man.This diverse mix of music is all explored and integrated into Adam Shatz's main project, Landlady. The latest release from Landlady is an album called Upright Behavior. On this episode of The Alternate Side in Session, Shatz and his Landlady cohorts perform some of the new material for us and Adam talks about the new record.

On his latest album, Ske-Dat-De-Dat: The Spirit of Satch, Dr. John pays tribute to the one-and-only Louis Armstrong. The album is a collection of 13 songs put through the "Nite Tripper" wash with a little help from his friends, including Bonnie Raitt, Shemekia Copeland, Arturo Sandoval and The Dirty Dozen Brass Band. I had the pleasure of sitting down with Dr. John, here in Studio A to talk about the new album and we’ll hear a sample of the new songs during this episode of FUV Live.

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.

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.
