FUV Live 16 Tracks

1. Mumford & Sons - Whispers in the Dark

Mumford & Sons have made several visits to Studio A over the years, each time more fun than the last.

2. Divine Fits - Would That Not Be Nice

This thing called Divine Fits brings driving rhythms to Britt Daniels' unmistakable vocals.

3. The National - Sea of Love

New York City's own delivered a one-take version of this song from their 6th album.

4. Phoenix - Entertainment

A stripped-down version brings the lyrics clearly into focus on this track.

5. The Lone Bellow - You Never Need Nobody

This Brooklyn-based trio made their radio debut on FUV, and so much has happened for them since. This performance captures the band's energetic live sound.

6. Thao & The Get Down Stay Down - We The Common

This is banjo like you've never heard it before, paired with Thao's smart lyrics, brought across the land from San Francisco.

7. Josh Ritter - A Certain Light

The longtime FUV fave released his most successful album yet this year. This song brings us love lost, and love found.

8. Daughter - Love

A trio of London newcomers delivers a haunting beauty that captures you at first listen.

9. Wild Belle - Keep You

This Chicago brother-sister team with Island grooves brings the sexy.

10. Iron & Wine - Low Light Buddy of Mine

Sam Beam's full 12-piece band took over the studio and made impossibly complex songs look easy.

11. Mavis Staples - I Like The Things About Me

Legendary voice with lyrics that hit close to the bone.

12. The Lumineers - Stubborn Love

One of the year's biggest songs brought to life by a band that can really play.

13. The Howlin' Brothers - Big Time

A favorite discovery of the year, with an old-time roots sound and a modern sense of fun.

14. The Mavericks - That's Not My Name

Thank goodness FUV was a must-stop on the reunited Mavericks tour, bringing this new song with them.

15. Savoir Adore - Dreamers

A local discovery - this Brooklyn synth-pop quintet has a vocal interplay you've gotta love.

16. Laura Mvula - She

A mesmerizing, masterful performance by the classically trained UK chanteuse.

17. Yeasayer - Longevity

These irreverent jesters wrap a little electronics around some big hooks.

18. Robert DeLong - Global Concepts

Like nothing else you've heard from FUV, we challenge you to sit still for this one.

19. Phosphorescent - Ride On / Right On

Bonus cut: We captured this performance outside our studios to bring you one of the year's rocking, undeniable favorites.
