Question of the Day: Bass Lines

by Corny O'Connell

Today we're going to get down to the bottom. Down where the bass gets into a groove. Share your favorite tracks with irresistible bass lines (not your favorite bass players). We'll put together a set after 9am.

Here's what we played: 

"Green-Eyed Lady" - Sugarloaf 

"Come Back (Light Therapy) - Josh Rouse 

"Buena" - Morphine 

"Shoot You Down" - APB 

"Pump It Up" - Elvis Costello 

Shovels and Rope - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

This Charleston-based duo consists of married songwriters Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hearst. The couple's recently released sophomore album, Swimmin' Time, is a unique blend of roots-rock, acoustic flavoring and a sharp, indie-rock edge. The record also showcases the strength of the duo’s musical relationship, with Trent and Hearst both sharing lead vocals and playing a variety of instruments. Shovels and Rope recently stopped by Studio A to play us some of their new songs and we'll hear that performance and my conversation with the duo during this episode of FUV Live.

Horse Thief's latest release, Fear in Bliss, is a beautifully crafted album, driven by melodic guitar and layers of texture. It represents a band that is embracing its sound and coming into its own. I was really excited to see these songs performed live and they did not disappoint.
