Milagres - FUV Live - 2014

by Alisa Ali

The latest release from the Brooklyn-based Milagres is called Violent Light and it finds the band refining its icy synthpop sound. There are hints of '80s-era Roxy Music and David Bowie and the songs have a lush, majestic feel to them. The band stops by Studio A to play us some of their new songs and talk about the new record.

Boy and Bear - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

This Sydney band more than avoided the sophomore slump when its new album Harlequin Dream topped the Australian charts. It also expanded their sound by incorporating '60s and '70s rock influences. Boy & Bear is acoustic at the core though, and that is how the guys perform on this episode of FUV Live.

Sabina - FUV Live - 2014

by Rita Houston

Sabina is the vocalist (and the only girl) in the band Brazilian Girls, and now she has stepped out as a solo artist. Her brand new album is called Toujours and with some definite nods to Nico, it expands her already eccentric, multi-lingual palette. She and her band stopped by Studio A to play some of her new songs and talk about the new record.

The Strypes - FUV Live - 2014

by Dennis Elsas

The Strypes are a terrific new band from Ireland that are playing adrenalized rock ‘n’ roll.  It’s fast, it’s tough, it’s smart and it’s fun.  I’m hearing echoes of early Stones and Yardbirds mixed with the speed of punk and the hooks of power pop.  Their debut album Snapshot is just that - a musical mix of ten originals and three cover songs that serve up an instant impression of what they do.

But it’s their live performance that really makes them stand out and exciting to watch.  They’ve got all the right moves combined with strong musicianship that seem to defy their age and life experience. Their average age is 17 and they look it.  It also doesn’t hurt that they were signed to Elton John’s Rocket Management and Chris Difford (of Squeeze) is  very much involved as a mentor.

I really enjoyed watching them perform in their FUV Studio A session and spending time talking with them on a variety of subjects. Take a look and take a listen below.
