Dan Mangan + Blacksmith - FUV Live - 2015

by Alisa Ali

Canadian singer-songwriter Dan Mangan is a very talented fella. His album Nice, Nice, Very Nice was nominated for a Polaris Prize and he had the (ehem) good fortune of winning a Juno Award for his last album, Oh Fortune. Dan is back again with his fourth full-length album, Club Meds, and I wouldn't be surprised if he finds himself on the red carpet for this one too. He'll have company this time, as this new album is billed as Dan Mangan + Blacksmith. Although he's been playing with the guys in Blacksmith for a while now, he has finally made it official.

Johnny Marr is most closely associated with his tenure in The Smiths, creating some of the most notable and long lasting guitar riffs in rock history. His 30-year-plus career, though, has taken him in a number of different directions with stints in Electronic, The Pretenders, The The, Modest Mouse and The Cribs as well as countless recordings as a session player.

The 2 Bears - FUV Live - 2015

by Kara Manning

Euphoric in sound and scope, The 2 Bears' sophomore album,The Night Is Young, picks up seamlessly from where the duo's 2012 debut, Be Strong, left off. Longtime friends Joe Goddard, a core member of Hot Chip, and Raf Rundell, formerly with the label 1965 Records, released a first album that brimmed with rapturous, intelligent house music that addressed both the unifying power of love and, surprisingly, the economic woes of the recession. Humor was also a vital element in their chemistry: in videos, festival gigs and Ibiza DJ sets, Goddard and Rundell delivered their club anthems while frolicking around in bear suits. It's not an approach that many bands could pull off, but the ursine-fixated pals managed to do it with dignity intact.

Katie Pearlman and Robert Bruey - Sunday Breakfast - 2015

by John Platt
Jeremy Rainer
Katie Pearlman and Robert Bruey are two of Long Island's finer singer-songwriters, though neither hails from there. Katie is a New Jersey native, who started piano lessons at age 5 before developing a lifelong love of the drums a few years later. These days she's most often seen with a guitar or her two daughters. She left the latter at home with husband Jeff (a musician himself), but brought the estimable Mark Newman to accompany her in Studio A.

Manchester Orchestra - FUV Live - 2015

by Carmel Holt

For anyone who has experienced unexpected life challenges (and who hasn’t?), a common discovery is that it can be the best gift we could have hoped for. It can bring about accelerated growth, opportunities to try new things, and ultimately strengthen us. Andy Hull and his band, Manchester Orchestra, have clearly benefited from a forced restructure in the last couple years. After almost a decade, three albums, and relentless touring, they lost both their record label and their rhythm section, but it all set in motion a number of positive changes for this Atlanta, Georgia-based band.
