The Alternate Side on FUV

A healthy dose of our indie music channel, on WFUV weeknights from 10pm-Midnight.

The Alternate Side is the indie music service from WFUV, available online and on HD Radio. The channel features a broad range of established and emerging indie rock and other styles, from across the city and beyond. [read more about it | or | go to thealternateside.org]

On The Alternate Side you may hear artists like Chairlift, Antibalas, The Postelles, Ratatat and many others yet to be discovered, alongside established international artists including Arcade Fire, Bjork, and The Decemberists. It's a kind of laboratory where we experiment with diverse genres and sounds as we build our own non-commercial web and radio service made right here in New York City.

Help us shape it! Tell us what we're doing right, and what you think of the music. Drop us a note with your ideas or suggestions, or tell us about a band you think would be right for the show. Write to Russ Borris: rborris@wfuv.org.

Warpaint - FUV Live - 2014

We have been caught in "The Undertow" of this L.A.-based band since 2010, when they released their excellent debut, The Fool. Warpaint's atmospheric sound captivated us and had us waiting with bated breath for the release of their follow up. Well, the wait is over and we now have a new self-titled release from the band. Warpaint still maintains that same spooky vibe that we expect from the band, but they've also incorporated some new sounds and a more meticulous approach to arrangement. Warpaint recently stopped by Studio A to play us some of their new songs and to talk about their new album.
