We're very excited about the upcoming SXSW Public Radio Rocks showcase, broadcast live on FUV this Friday at noon, and as a harbinger of good things to come, on TAS on FUV tonight at 10, some of the artists and bands making an impact in Austin this week, like Temples, Pins and Eagulls. Since Damon Albarn is headlining Public Radio Rocks, we'll have a Shuffle from Blur, plus more great music from Lo-Fang, Cloud Nothings, Joanna Gruesome, The Replacements and more.

Yuck - FUV Live - 2014

by Kara Manning

Yuck has more than persevered following the departure of frontman Daniel Blumberg in early 2013. Guitarist Max Bloom, who wrote the bulk of the music on the band's 2011 self-titled debut, is now at the helm, and the London-based band released a bold and dreamy sophomore album, Glow & Behold, last fall.

Tonight on TAS on FUV at 10, we'll endure the plummeting temperatures of the polar vortex together while listening to new (and warm as a woolly sweater) music from I Break Horses (pictured), Cate Le Bon, The Preatures, Foxes, Hospitality and more.

Whoa, it's way too cold out there! Tonight on The Alternate Side on FUV at 10, we're thawing out with a warm, cuddly selection of songs from Toy (pictured), the Lemonheads, Jagwar Ma, Haim, Pixies, San Fermin and other TAS faves. The Shuffle features New York's own Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Poliça gets reconfigured on The Mix-Up. No long underwear or mittens required.

TAS On FUV For Thursday, January 2

by Kara Manning

Nothing like a snowstorm, subzero wind chills and howling winds to remind you that's it's early January! On tonight's TAS on FUV at 10, we'll ward off the cold with a smörgåsbord of new and vintage tracks from the likes of Lucius, Dean Wareham (pictured), the Vaselines, Belly, Cut Copy, the Cure and a Shuffle from those canny, offbeat men of MGMT

Happy 2014! TAS On FUV For January 1

by Kara Manning

Happy new year! At 10 tonight, it's the very first TAS on FUV for 2014, but we're still looking back at some of TAS' favorite releases of last year, like Vampire Weekend, Chvrches, Holy Ghost!, Arctic Monkeys, Shearwater and more. We're feeling very wistful about The Walkmen's 2013 farewell too — the band (pictured) has embarked on what they're calling an "extreme hiatus" — so tonight's Shuffle will salute that great band.

TAS On FUV For December 30

by Kara Manning

Since tomorrow's TAS on FUV is preempted for FUV's New Year's Eve Dance Party, tonight's show at 10 is the last one of 2013. So we'll look back on some bands that made their debuts over the last 12 months, like Temples (pictured), Minor Alps, London Grammar and more.

TAS On FUV For December 27

by Kara Manning

We might be stuck in the December no man's land between holidays, but tonight on TAS on FUV at 10 we'll kickstart your last weekend of 2013 with Holy Ghost!, Public Enemy, Arcade Fire, the Beastie Boys, and The Fratellis. In addition, a sweet Shuffle from digital reverb maestros My Bloody Valentine (pictured).

That's The Alternate Side on FUV, following Rita Houston's "Whole Wide World," also streaming online.

It's a post-Thanksgiving, middle of Chanukah, cyber-wary Morrissey Monday on TAS on FUV at 10. In addition to our favorite dour Mancunian, we'll also hear from the Beastie Boys, St. Lucia, Albert Hammond, Jr., Dum Dum Girls, Yuck and other TAS new and vintage TAS tracks.

Jagwar Ma - FUV Live - 2013

by Kara Manning

A duo (and a trio on the road) from Sydney, Australia, Jagwar Ma mixes psychedelic rock with pristine dance-music production. The band's full-length debut, Howlin', effortlessly references everything from soul music to the Stone Roses to space disco without sounding contrived or forced. The band — Jono Ma, Gabriel Winterfield and Jack Freeman — recently stopped by Studio A to share some of their new songs and discuss the evolution the album during this episode of FUV Live.
