Slingshot 2017

WFUV has always been a source for music discovery, and we’re proud to partner with NPR Music, VuHaus and stations around the country on a project called Slingshot, to extend that reach even further.

Check out FUV's 2017 Slingshot features with Jamila Woods, Lo Moon and Big Thief below, and now, see the list of the Slingshot 2018 artists, including Phoebe Bridgers and Bedouine. (More at NPR.org/slingshot).

Record Shopping with Lo Moon

Social and communal aspects are among the most treasured elements of record stores. Being surrounded by wax and flipping through the bins, while exchanging remarks with friends and strangers, is an endangered but not extinct pastime. I recently had the chance to do so while shopping at Rough Trade NYC in Brooklyn with Holiday Cheer and Slingshot artist Lo Moon.

Lo Moon: 2017

Sometimes it's love at first sight with a band, and that's what happened for me with Lo Moon. I first heard "Loveless" last fall and immediately wanted more.
