Cloud Nothings - FUV Live - 2014

by Eric Holland

Cloud Nothings are at once caustic and exhilarating, a whirlwind of reverb and regret. On the Cleveland band's latest album, Here and Nowhere Else, Dylan Baldi and his bandmates aspire to sharper songcraft, bringing a sophisticated layer to their tempestuous punk roar. Watch Cloud Nothings' seismic performance in FUV's Studio A and listen to their session right here.

Liam Finn - FUV Live - 2014

by Alisa Ali

Liam Finn may come from a musical family (his father is Neil Finn of Crowded House fame) but he has been making a name for himself since 2007.  Liam writes and records his own style of engagingly innovative music. He's now on his third full-length release, The Nihilist, which is an eccentric and ambitious album that features layering of both organic and programmed instruments, all under his signature falsetto vocal styling. Liam recently stopped by Studio A to perform some of his new songs and to talk with me about made up holidays, writer's block and his adopted home of New York City. 

Jungle - FUV Live - 2014

by Kara Manning

The funked-out, falsetto-driven songs of London's Jungle offer up the perfect summertime soundtrack, brimming with sleek harmonies and soulful anthems. Although the London duo of boyhood friends still stubbornly adhere to some anonymity—they prefer to be called J and T rather than their given names and shy from too much personal attention—as a touring collective of five (or seven) members, Jungle is boldly uncloaked. It's been barely a year since Jungle first dropped a sultry double A-sided single, "Platoon" and "Drops," on Chess Club Records amid a flurry of queries about their identity. This week, the pair finally released their self-titled debut album on XL Recordings on the heels of an extraordinary year that's included sold-out worldwide gigs and an overload of blogosphere buzz. Not long ago, Jungle ventured to the Bronx to play a mini-set for WFUV and I had a chance to chat with J and T about their carefully crafted ascendance, their love of all genres of music and their inimitable bond.

The jazz community is mourning the passing of one of its great innovators. Jazz bassist and composer, Charlie Haden, died on Friday, July 11, in Los Angeles. He was 76 years old. His contributions to jazz are immeasurable and his resume is enormous. Charlie never quite settled into any one jazz niche. On one hand, he was a pivotal figure in the birth of the free jazz movement. On the other, he made recordings that drew on traditional American folk music.

The Big Bright - Sunday Breakfast - 2014

by John Platt
"Walk Like an Egyptian" performed as a lullaby? It sounds implausible, but in the hands of The Big Bright, it works. Glenn Patscha and Fiona McBain of Ollabelle formed The Big Bright with their friend Liz Tormes to record '80s hits as nocturnes and lullabies, something for both parents and kids to enjoy. In this Sunday Breakfast session they treated us to performances of "Egyptians" and other songs from their CD, I Slept Through the '80s.
