Fink - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

This UK-based band is led by former trip-hop DJ and now singer-songwriter Fin Greenall. He has been putting out music for more than a decade under the name Fink with the help from drummer Tim Thornton and bassist Guy Whittaker. The band recently released its fifth album, Hard Believer, and it's stacked with shimmering vocals, folk guitars and hypnotic rhythms. Fink recently stopped by Studio A to play and talk about the new songs. We’ll hear that conversation and performance during this episode of FUV Live.

by John Platt
Jeremy Rainer

The last couple of years have been a period of personal change for Catie Curtis, the openhearted singer-songwriter from Boston. She returned to the Sunday Breakfast to talk candidly about those changes and perform songs of pain and songs of hope from her latest album, Flying  Dream.

The Raveonettes - FUV Live - 2014

by Alisa Ali

Earlier this year, the Danish duo The Raveonettes released its seventh full-length album, Pe'ahi. The album is named after a legendary surf break on the island of Maui, and there is even a track on the new record that recounts a true story about a near-death experience that Sune Rose Wagner had while surfing in Hawaii several years ago. In typical Raveonettes fashion, the songs on the new album deal with dark subject matter, but this time the songs hit even closer to home for Wagner, as he was dealing with the death of his father during the making of the record. Like many people, music helped him deal with this situation and he and his partner, Sharin Foo, ended up making a brilliant record that is a huge sonic leap forward for the band. During a recent Studio A visit, they performed a couple of their older songs for us, which you can watch here.

Nick Mulvey - FUV Live - 2014

by Kara Manning

As a founding member of Portico Quartet, the Mercury Prize-nominated experimental jazz group, Nick Mulvey played the hang, an unusual percussive instrument that resembles a space-age wok and emits a haunting, trembling tone. But despite the success of Portico Quartet, Mulvey was restless to return to guitar-based music, attracted to the lyrical confidence and technical prowess of songwriters like Paul Simon, John Martyn and Nick Drake.

Timber Timbre - FUV Live - 2014

by Alisa Ali

Timber Timbre released its fifth full-length album, Hot Dreams, earlier this year and it is a hauntingly cinematic collection of music. Billboard might have said it best when they described it as "Nick Cave soundtracking a romantic date night." Hot Dreams was also shortlisted in the band's native Canada for the 2014 Polaris Music Prize for best album of the year.
