Question of the Day: Sweet

by Corny O'Connell

March Madness® is getting down to brass tacks. After starting with a field of 64 teams, we're down to the sweet sixteen in college basketball. Which has us thinking of "sweet" songs. Got any in your playbook? Tip us off in the comments below and we'll play a set of "sweet" songs after 9am.

Here's what we played: 

"Sweet Old World" by Lucinda Williams 

"My Sweet Lord" by George Harrison 

"Sweet Disposition" by The Temper Trap 

Houndmouth - FUV Live at Hill Country Live - 2015

by Carmel Holt

This rootsy indie rock band from New Albany, Indiana won us over a couple years ago with their four-part harmonies and wonderful story-songs on their debut, From The Hills Below The City. So we were thrilled to bring Houndmouth back once again to Hill Country Live, just as they were about to release their sophomore effort, Little Neon Limelight – an album that they joke almost got the title Super Thriller (yes, as in, Michael Jackson’s Thriller). Listen in as Matt Myers, Shane Cody, Katie Toupin, and Zak Appleby showcase their fantastic new collection of songs, their voices, and their sense of humor, with this high energy, live set.

Question of the Day: That's So Meta

by Corny O'Connell

Can you think of a song that refers to itself? That's the challenge for our Question of the Day - a song that has lyrics about the very same song. We'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

George Harrison - "This Song"

Shins - "Simple Song"

Elton John - "Your Song"

Richard Shindell - "Are You Happy Now?"

Ewert & The Two Dragons - FUV Live - 2015

by Alisa Ali

Last month the Estonian rock band Ewert & The Two Dragons released its much-anticipated third album, Circles. Thematically, the album is about going through changes, and the band fittingly decided to change its recording process to capture that theme. Immediately after finishing an extensive tour, the band recorded the new album on the West Coast of the U.S. in a few short weeks instead of recording in Estonia where previous records were made. The result is a collection of focused and well-crafted songs with a quiet intensity.
