WFUV CD Of The Week

WFUV CD Of The Week: Josh Ritter

by Carmel Holt

Anyone who has been in love, and has endured the pain of a breakup knows there is beauty and hope in heartbreak. Josh Ritter says of his new album, The Beast In Its Tracks, “When it came time to put these songs on a record, I had thought it was a record about divorce, but it really was a record about what happens after." There is plenty of beauty and hope here, and with his incredible talent for song craft, Josh Ritter delivers a moving and honest look at the process of love found, lost, and found again.

The Lone Bellow is the WFUV CD of the Week

by Carmel Holt

Okay, we’ll come right out and say it: we love The Lone Bellow. One of our 2013 Artists to Watch, Brooklyn trio The Lone Bellow have already graced Studio A for Words & Music, enchanted us with their live performance at Del Posto, and now, we’re excited to feature the band’s self-titled debut as our WFUV CD of the Week.

Father John Misty In The WFUV CD Of The Week

by Eric Holland

As he proved last week when he appeared as a guest in Words&Music, Josh TIllman is an outspoken musician with definite ideas about record-making and song-writing.  Tonight at 8, we'll focus on the debut album Josh released under the name Father John Misty on Sub Pop called Fear Fun.  The Father, who downplays his contributions to his old band Fleet Foxes, will play Webster Hall next Monday the 14th.

The Lumineers Tonight In The WFUV CD Of The Week

by Eric Holland

The Lumineers were born when Wesley Schultz & Jeremiah Fraites hooked up in Ramsey, NJ but it wasn't until they headed west to Denver

and picked up a cello player named Neyla Pekarek that they really got their mojo working.  They had a great 2012 capped recently by nominations  for Best New Artist and Best Americana Album Grammies.

Catch the self-titled debut by The Lumineers tonight at 8 at 90.7 FM.
