Real Estate - FUV Live - 2014

by Darren DeVivo

Back in 2011, I was introduced to the band Real Estate while listening to WFUV’s “The Alternate Side” in the car. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. There were jangly guitars and catchy hooks galore. Those are two music ingredients that are sure to get my attention every time! Hearing this band brought back memories of the guitar-based alternative bands that I played on WFUV in the mid 1980s. From that point on, their first two albums became favorites that could be found in my CD players fairly often. In recent years, Real Estate expanded from a trio to a quintet and now they are back with their third album, Atlas. Needless to say, I was pretty excited to spend some time with the band in the WFUV studios. Their in studio performance was flawless. Hear it for yourself!

Dan Wilson - FUV Live - 2014

by Rita Houston

Since his Semisonic days, Dan Wilson has spent a lot of time co-writing and producing, earning hits with a long list of artists like The Dixie Chicks and Adele. It hasn't left a lot of space for solo work, but he’s finally followed up his 2007 debut, Free Life, with a brand new album. It’s called Love Without Fear and it’s out today. Dan recently stopped by Studio A to share some new songs, to talk about the new record, and to give us a heads up on what else he's been working on.

Dan Croll - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

This British artist is schooled in songwriting and multiple instruments, falling somewhere in the middle of acoustic and digital in his sound. All the layers come together on his new album Sweet Disarray. Ahead of his Bowery Ballroom show this Thursday, he stopped by Studio A to perform some of his new songs and talk about the new record during this episode of FUV Live.

Sunday Breakfast - Spuyten Duyvil - 4/13/14

by John Platt

Spuyten Duyvil is a seven-piece band born in the Hudson Valley. They take their name from the creek that divides Manhattan and the Bronx, and their music from the American roots tradition — but with a lot of original songwriting and high-energy playing. Since breaking out as emerging artists at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, they've been building a fan base in Brooklyn and far beyond. It was a treat to welcome this fun-loving group back to Studio A.
