New York City's paid sick leave law takes effect today. That's good for employees, but here's hoping you won't have to use too many sick days. To mark the occasion we're playing your favorite songs about being sick, in every sense of the word. Prescribe a few in the comments below and we'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

"Fever" - Peggy Lee

"Coconut" - Harry Nilsson

"Catch My Disease" - Ben Lee

French Style Furs - FUV Live - 2014

by Alisa Ali

French Style Furs is a new band that features Nathan Willet and Matt Maust of Cold War Kids as well as Nathan Warkentin of We Barbarians. Unlike these musicians’ past endeavors, guitar is used sparingly on the record to make room for bright synthesizers, horns and an abundance of backing vocals. The lyrics for these new songs were taken from the 20th century poet, Thomas Merton. French Style Furs have turned his introspective words into a rousing collection of songs on their debut album, Is Exotic Bait. The band recently stopped by Studio A to play us some of their new material and talk about the record. We'll hear that performance and conversation on this episode of FUV Live.

 

Ingrid Michaelson - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

Our Staten Island Sweetheart, Ingrid Michaelson is back with another album of earnest songs featuring her trademark wit and reflection. On this new record, she brought in a whole family of musicians to collaborate with and according to Ingrid, this was one of the best decisions she could have ever made. Ahead of her Central Park SummerStage show here in New York City, she stopped by Studio A to share some of the new material and talk about the new record, Lights Out.
