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.

Avi Buffalo - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

Avigdor Zahner-Isenberg is the main main behind the moniker Avi Buffalo. He began writing songs while he was in high school and before he even graduated he was signed to the prestigious indie label Sub Pop and began touring the world behind his brilliant self-titled debut album. This year he released his sophomore album, At Best Cuckold, and Avi explained that the new songs were inspired by writing "about life, dealing with relationships and yourself, and trying to keep your head up and keep learning amidst whatever it is you’re going through." A very mature 23-year-old indeed.

Hiss Golden Messenger - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

Hiss Golden Messenger is an alternative-folk duo comprised of North Carolina-based songwriter M.C. Taylor and Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist Scott Hirsch. The pair’s history of collaboration can be traced back almost two decades, and the strength of their bond is ever present on the duo’s fifth album, Lateness of Dancers. The new album was recorded in a tin roof barn outside of Hillsborough, North Carolina. Taylor handled the main songwriting duties as Hirsch oversaw production and provided bass, mandolin, and pedal steel for the album.
