Nicole Atkins has had a great year in 2014, releasing her latest record, Slow Phaser, as well as the new live album, Live at the Masonic Temple.  She’s also got great taste in music and I recently got to sit down with Nicole to talk about some of her favorite songs and albums of the year.  We’ll cover a bunch of others topics too, including her tour with Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, her upcoming project with Bad Seeds drummer Jim Sclavunos and lots more.

James - FUV Live - 2014

by Kara Manning
The devastating blow of his mother’s death and the passing of a close friend compelled Tim Booth, the lead singer of James, to deal with profound grief in the only way he knew how: to write songs and record an album with his bandmates. But James’ most recent album, La Petite Mort, isn’t steeped in relentless sorrow and lachrymose lyrics, but embraces broader, brighter themes with a spiritual and even humorous bent, celebrating the fleeting nature of life and love.

Langhorne Slim makes folk music for the modern age. His songs tip a hat to Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan and Nirvana all at the same time. His last album, The Way We Move, was released a couple of years ago and he is currently in the process of making a new record. During this FUV Live show recorded at City Winery in NYC, he performed some of the new material, and I also talked with Langhorne Slim about what he's been up to since we last saw him.

One of Conor Oberst's labelmates on Nonesuch Records is Natalie Merchant, who released her sixth solo album, self-titled, in 2014. This quietly powerful and thoughtful record, rich with exquisite character studies and sunbeams of soulful reverie, marked Natalie's first collection of new, original songs in over 13 years.

We are so pleased that Natalie joined Holiday Cheer for FUV with Conor Oberst and Friends at the Beacon Theatre, since she's always been beloved by this station and our listeners. She was a part of the extraordinary lineup which also included Suzanne Vega, Laura Marling, The Lone Bellow, The Felice Brothers and Jonathan Wilson.
