Juliana Hatfield: 2017

For anyone that came up in the late '80s and early '90s, the alt-rock coming out of Boston was indispensable and had a huge role to play in the sonic landscape: Pixies, ‘Til Tuesday, Morphine, the Lemonheads, and, of course, our FUV Live guest Juliana Hatfield.
Hatfield was once a member of the aforementioned Lemonheads and Blake Babies, but in 1991 she struck out on her own, eventually forming the Juliana Hatfield Three a couple of years later.
Hatfield has released thirteen solo albums since that time; she hasn't disappeared and then reappeared in the current new wave of nostalgia for music of that era. She also formed a collaborative project with Matthew Caws of Nada Surf as Minor Alps and worked with Paul Westerberg of the Replacements on last year’s release as The I Don’t Cares. A few years ago, she reformed the Juliana Hatfield Three for a new album.
Now, the unstoppable Hatfield is back with a politically charged album called Pussycat, and she returned to Studio A to play us a couple new tunes and chat about her latest collection.
