Question of the Day: Leaf Peeping Soundtrack

by Corny O'Connell

It's leaf peeping season. That's a great reason for a road trip in search of farm-fresh apple cider, old-fashioned doughnuts, and the glorious colors of fall. We'll need a soundtrack for the trip and that's where you come in. Leave your suggestions in the comments below and we'll spin a set after 9am.

"Autumn Leaves" - Paula Cole

"Eyes to the Wind" -War on Drugs

"Going up the Country" - Canned Heat

Highasakite - FUV Live - 2014

by Kara Manning

Like a brooding Nordic Noir novel, Highasakite's second album, Silent Treatment, brims with menacing chapters: tracks bearing bellicose titles like "The Hand Grenade," "Iran" and "Darth Vader" don't promise a sweet outcome. But the Norwegian quintet's sound, as darkly conceived as it might be, is elevated by lushly cinematic, often upbeat arrangements, urged forward by Ingrid Helene Håvik's pensively pretty vocals. It's not surprising that Bon Iver's Justin Vernon is a fan (or that Highasakite recently covered one of his songs).
