Zeus - FUV Live - 2014

by Alisa Ali

The Mighty Zeus are back! I love this band. We had them in for their last album, Busting Visions which was a fantastic collection of power pop.  The Canadian band released their follow up this year with their 4th full length album, Classic Zeus and the new songs confirm that this band is a well oiled machine.

What I find so impressive about these guys is that there are 3 different songwriters: Mike O'Brien, Carlin Nicholson, and Neil Quin. They each have a style of their own, but placed within their albums, the songs, despite who wrote them all converge into a uniquely or rather... Classic Zeus sound. This may have something to do with their drummer, Rob Drake's ability to keep it all flowing seamlessly together. 

It was an absolute pleasure to host these guys in Studio A again. Check out the performances here.

Question of the Day

by Morning Show

Something old? Something new? Something borrowed? Something blue?

Did you receive the gift of music this year for Christmas or Hanukkah? 

If so, let me know what you received. If not, let me know a song or album you wish you'd received.

We'll put together a set after 9, on the Question of the Day.

Ben Howard - FUV Live - 2014

by Alisa Ali

British singer songwritter Ben Howard is back with his sophomore album, I Forget Where We Are.  The album follows up his 2011 debut, Every Kingdom which earned him two BRIT Awards and a Mercury Prize nomination. The new album features more electric guitars and has a darker tone to it, but it still features the thoughtful and introspective songwritting that we've come to love. When Ben stopped by Studio A with this band this past October, he played a couple of the new songs for us. Check them out here.

Question of the Day: Happy Festivus!

by Corny O'Connell

Happy Festivus! Yes, it's a Festivus for the rest of us - the holiday popularized by Seinfeld. Let's set up the aluminum pole, have the airing of grievances and the feats of strength. For the WFUV Question of the Day, we'll focus on the airing of grievances. Suggest a song that does just that and we'll spin a set after 9am. Don't disappoint me this year, leave your song suggestions in the comments below.

Here's what we played:
