Pieta Brown - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

Pieta Brown has been making a name for herself for more than a decade now. On her new record, Paradise Outlaw, Pieta delivers her take on modern folk and displays some of her most expressive performances to date. The album was recorded in four days at Justin Vernon's April Base studio in Wisconsin with a stellar supporting cast that includes Vernon and Amos Lee as well as Greg Brown.

Tweedy - FUV Live - 2014

by Rita Houston

The latest project from Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy is a collaboration with his son Spencer. The band started when Jeff was working with Mavis Staples on her latest album One True Vine, on which Jeff was producer and Spencer played drums. After the album was finished, Jeff and Spencer simply continued making music together. Now, under the very appropriate moniker “Tweedy,” the father-son combo releases their first album, Sukierae, on Tuesday and it's in the spotlight this week as FUV's New Dig. During this episode of FUV Live, we'll get a preview of some of the new songs and hear my conversation with Jeff and Spencer.

Samsaya - FUV Live - 2014

by Kara Manning

Effusive, cheerful and self-determined, India-born, Norway-raised and Sweden-based pop singer Samsaya paints a crimson heart over her eye before every performance. It's a talisman of sorts, reminding the singer (and her fans) of her deep love of music, a passion that guided her through some lonely years as a child and teenager trying to bridge two very different cultures.

Marco Benevento - FUV Live - 2014

by Alisa Ali

Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Marco Benevento has been gracefully blending his jazz roots with indie rock, jam bands, and several other genres for more than a decade. His latest studio album, Swift, is his most musically consistent and thematic record yet and sees him singing for the first time. Marco Benevento recently stopped by Studio A to play some of the new songs and talk about his new album. We’ll hear that conversation and performance during this episode of The Alternate Side in Session.

 

Future Islands - FUV Live - 2014

by Kara Manning

Future Islands has spent a decade releasing albums that mix eclectic genres, from synth-splashed pop to harder-edged rock with a hip-hop heart. Yet after three albums, tireless touring and relocating from their native North Carolina to Baltimore, the trio erupted into mainstream consciousness this year with their fourth release, Singles, and via a galvanizing appearance on "The Late Show with David Letterman." The video of that performance quickly went viral, propelled by the mighty vocals and endearingly earnest dance moves of front man Samuel T. Herring, and it changed Future Islands' fortunes. After years of hard work, Future Islands—Herring, bassist William Cashion and keyboadist Gerrit Welmers—are finally receiving the attention they deserve.
