Nicole Atkins has had a great year in 2014, releasing her latest record, Slow Phaser, as well as the new live album, Live at the Masonic Temple.  She’s also got great taste in music and I recently got to sit down with Nicole to talk about some of her favorite songs and albums of the year.  We’ll cover a bunch of others topics too, including her tour with Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, her upcoming project with Bad Seeds drummer Jim Sclavunos and lots more.

Question of the Day: Holiday Music

There is a music more contentious than rap, more polarizing than Bob Dylan. Yes, we speak of holiday music - Christmas music. It comes around once a year, but even that is too much for some to bear. For others Christmas music brings fond memories of childhood and is essential to tree trimming and holiday get-togethers. However you feel, we're taking requests in the comments below. We'll spin a set after 9am.

Langhorne Slim makes folk music for the modern age. His songs tip a hat to Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan and Nirvana all at the same time. His last album, The Way We Move, was released a couple of years ago and he is currently in the process of making a new record. During this FUV Live show recorded at City Winery in NYC, he performed some of the new material, and I also talked with Langhorne Slim about what he's been up to since we last saw him.
