Bear's Den - FUV Live from Electric Lady Studios - 2014

by Kara Manning

Over the course of two fine EPs, Agape and Within/Without and, at long last, a debut album, Islands, Bear’s Den has established itself as a folk rock force of nature, crafting emotionally complex, dynamically arranged songs that soar, swoon and sob. The hard-working London trio— singer/guitarist Andrew Davie, vocalist/banjo player Joey Haynes and drummer (and Communion Records co-founder) Kevin Jones—has toured with Laura Marling, Daughter, the Vaccines and Mumford and Sons, exploring the richly textured nuances of their sound.

Field Report - FUV Live at Rockwood Music Hall - 2014

by Russ Borris

Chris Porterfield's latest album as Field Report is beautifully written and produced, filled with warmth and subtlety. Marigolden is one of my favorite records of the year and it's our New Dig this week, so I was psyched to hear the new songs in live performance. Chris brought the new incarnation of Field Report to Rockwood Music Hall in an exclusive show for FUV Marquee Members. Many didn't know much about the band going into the show, but clearly left as new fans. During the show, Chris talked about his changed relationship with alcohol, the nuances of writing and recording and some of his inspiration surrounding Marigolden.

Erin McKeown doesn't perform on acoustic guitars. However, she does write on one, and she recently recorded an entirely-acoustic companion to her most recent album, Manifestra, so that the lyrics could take center stage. Today she returned to Studio A with a Gibson Hummingbird guitar that has been with her since she was 12, ahead of a show at the Rubin Museum where she'll perform with it for the first time.
