New Music Monday is a collection of the best new releases in music each week. We share them with you every Monday, every hour on WFUV.
A.C. Newman- Shut Down The Streets
This new record from The New Pornographers front man sounds like a side project, but does not disappoint. You can definitely hear a stripped down version of his band’s smart, upbeat pop here.
The Rolling Stones- “Doom and Gloom”
This is one of two new originals included on the classic band’s interestingly titled compilation album GRRR!. What really needs to be said about a new Stones track?
Sera Cahoone- Deer Creek Canyon
Cahoone has been well established in the Seattle scene for a long time, and it seems the rest of the country is finally noticing. With the help of Seattle label Sub Pop her beautiful folk-americana music has reached us at WFUV.
The singer just can’t seem to fail as she now releases the theme song for the most recent addition to the James Bond series. Many are saying the film will be the best Bond in a long time; of course they pick Adele to make the song.
Donald Fagen- Sunken Condos
Fagen says that he had anthemic breakup songs such as “I Will Survive” and “These Boots Were Made For Walkin’” in mind when writing this new track. Clearly it’s a new direction for the Steely Dan member.
Rupa and the April Fishes- Rupa and the April Fishes
This San Francisco based band, like many FUV artists, is hard to define. They claim to incorporate Latin, American, Gypsy, French, Argentinean, and even Indian sounds in their music.
