FUV's New Dig: Death Cab For Cutie

by Darren DeVivo
Death Cab For Cutie

Death Cab For Cutie

Change is inevitable. We’ve all experienced different degrees of change. While some embrace change, others are distressed by it. Death Cab for Cutie has seen some significant changes since their last album, 2011's Codes and Keys, and those seismic shifts inspired the group's brand new collection, Kintsugi. Over the past four years, Ben Gibbard, Death Cab for Cutie’s lead singer and guitarist, weathered a divorce from his wife, the actress and singer Zooey Deschanel. In 2013, founding member Chris Walla announced that he was leaving the band. Although Walla did contribute to the Kintsugi sessions, the band faces a future that no longer includes its lead guitarist and longtime producer. Although Kintsugi marks a last glance at Death Cab for Cutie as a quartet (for the moment), the album offers remaining members Gibbard, Nick Harmer and Jason McGerr a solid foundation as they look to the band's next phase.

Brandi Carlile - FUV Live at Electric Lady Studios - 2015

by Rita Houston

"The sixth one is the charm," Brandi Carlile said to me of her new album, The Firewatcher's Daughter, and her biggest seller to date. It's her first on on independent label and clearly the one she feels best represents her broad style and rock and roll spirit. Her songs have always struck me as among the most honest, emotional and passionate out there.
