Christopher Owens - FUV Live - 2014

by Alisa Ali

We first became aware of the talents of Christopher Owens a few years ago through his band Girls. Their full-length debut was simply titled Album, and the dreamy songs on it recall warm and hazy California pop. Girls went on to release one more full-length album and an EP before breaking up in 2012. Without wasting much time at all, Owens got straight to work and released his solo debut, Lysandre, a year later. Incredibly, he has already made his second solo album.

Bear's Den - FUV Live from Electric Lady Studios - 2014

by Kara Manning

Over the course of two fine EPs, Agape and Within/Without and, at long last, a debut album, Islands, Bear’s Den has established itself as a folk rock force of nature, crafting emotionally complex, dynamically arranged songs that soar, swoon and sob. The hard-working London trio— singer/guitarist Andrew Davie, vocalist/banjo player Joey Haynes and drummer (and Communion Records co-founder) Kevin Jones—has toured with Laura Marling, Daughter, the Vaccines and Mumford and Sons, exploring the richly textured nuances of their sound.
