St. Vincent - FUV Live from Celebrate Brooklyn - 2014

Since the release of St. Vincent's ferociously beautiful self-titled album earlier this year—her fourth solo record—Brooklyn-based Annie Clark's assured ascendance as rock 'n' roll's astonishing guitar-shredding goddess, with silver hair and a sci-fi sparkle in her eye, has been thrilling to watch. So what better way to close out Celebrate Brooklyn's starry 2014 summer season last Saturday night at the Prospect Park Bandshell than with St. Vincent's brilliantly unconventional, explosive show, broadcast live on FUV? Happily, you can revisit that extraordinary night now in the FUV Vault.

Question Of The Day: Bedbugs? On the Subway?

by Morning Show
What's the creepiest thing you've encountered in the New York City Subway system?
 
With two reports of Bedbugs in the news (first on the N and now on the 7) many New York straphangers are feeling the need for biohazard gear.

 

Subway songs are welcome, but please, keep it clean :)

Here's what we played:

The Washington Squares "D Train"

Elton John "Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters"

Petula Clark "Don't Sleep in the Subway"

Question of the Day: Left-Handed?

by Corny O'Connell

It's International Left-Handers Day - a day for lefties to celebrate their sinistrality. It's also a day to raise awareness of the frustrations of being left-handed. Try using a computer mouse or driving a stick shift. Am I right lefties? Anyway, let's celebrate with music by left-handers. I'll spin a set of your suggestions after 9am with my left hand.

Here's what we played:

"Rainy Day, Dream Away" - The Jimi Hendrix Experience

"Born Under a Bad Sign" - Albert King

"What Does It Mean Now?" - World Party

White Hinterland - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

Baby is the third full-length album released by Casey Dienel under the moniker White Hinterland. The classically-trained New England musician began work on her new album with a very DIY attitude, teaching herself production methods and even building her own studio. During the process of recording these deeply personal songs about heartbreak and frustration, she found that she was actually surrounded by a great network of family and friends. The new songs on Baby showcase Dienel’s natural talent as a vocalist and newfound talent as a producer. On a recent visit to WFUV, Casey played us a couple of tunes live in Studio A and talked about her music.
