The Alternate Side

TAS On FUV For Thursday, January 2

by Kara Manning

Nothing like a snowstorm, subzero wind chills and howling winds to remind you that's it's early January! On tonight's TAS on FUV at 10, we'll ward off the cold with a smörgåsbord of new and vintage tracks from the likes of Lucius, Dean Wareham (pictured), the Vaselines, Belly, Cut Copy, the Cure and a Shuffle from those canny, offbeat men of MGMT

Happy 2014! TAS On FUV For January 1

by Kara Manning

Happy new year! At 10 tonight, it's the very first TAS on FUV for 2014, but we're still looking back at some of TAS' favorite releases of last year, like Vampire Weekend, Chvrches, Holy Ghost!, Arctic Monkeys, Shearwater and more. We're feeling very wistful about The Walkmen's 2013 farewell too — the band (pictured) has embarked on what they're calling an "extreme hiatus" — so tonight's Shuffle will salute that great band.

TAS On FUV For December 30

Since tomorrow's TAS on FUV is preempted for FUV's New Year's Eve Dance Party, tonight's show at 10 is the last one of 2013. So we'll look back on some bands that made their debuts over the last 12 months, like Temples (pictured), Minor Alps, London Grammar and more.

We might be stuck in the December no man's land between holidays, but tonight on TAS on FUV at 10 we'll kickstart your last weekend of 2013 with Holy Ghost!, Public Enemy, Arcade Fire, the Beastie Boys, and The Fratellis. In addition, a sweet Shuffle from digital reverb maestros My Bloody Valentine (pictured).

That's The Alternate Side on FUV, following Rita Houston's "Whole Wide World," also streaming online.

It's a post-Thanksgiving, middle of Chanukah, cyber-wary Morrissey Monday on TAS on FUV at 10. In addition to our favorite dour Mancunian, we'll also hear from the Beastie Boys, St. Lucia, Albert Hammond, Jr., Dum Dum Girls, Yuck and other TAS new and vintage TAS tracks.

Jagwar Ma - FUV Live - 2013

by Kara Manning

A duo (and a trio on the road) from Sydney, Australia, Jagwar Ma mixes psychedelic rock with pristine dance-music production. The band's full-length debut, Howlin', effortlessly references everything from soul music to the Stone Roses to space disco without sounding contrived or forced. The band — Jono Ma, Gabriel Winterfield and Jack Freeman — recently stopped by Studio A to share some of their new songs and discuss the evolution the album during this episode of FUV Live.

TAS On FUV For Wednesday, November 27

by Kara Manning

It's a Thanksgiving Eve and the first night of Chanukah. So many holidays! Tonight on TAS on FUV at 10, let the music of Laura Mvula (pictured), Cocteau Twins, Stephen Malkmus and The Jicks, Haim, Blood Orange, the Beastie Boys and other fabulous folks be your soundtrack to turkey brining, sweet potato pie baking and latke frying.

TAS On FUV For Tuesday, November 26

by Kara Manning

Tonight on TAS on FUV at 10, Russ Borris is off for a few days for a well-deserved Thanksgiving break, but I'll be minding his show with a lineup that includes a New Order Shuffle, Andrew Bird, Nine Inch Nails, Polly Scattergood, Los Campesinos! and Arcade Fire.

Cults - FUV Live - 2013

by Alisa Ali
In 2010 the song, “Go Outside” mysteriously found its way onto the internet and quickly made the rounds to various music blogs and radio stations including ours. It was an extremely catchy song, but at the time not much was known about the band and googling them was an exercise in futility unless you wanted to read about The Manson Family and the like.
These days however, information about the band is readily available – and even shows up before the Manson Family in a google search.

London Grammar - FUV Live - 2013

by Alisa Ali
The fast-rising British trio London Grammar understands the resonant scope of simplicity, silence and space. The trio's graceful debut album, If You Wait, was released in September to enthusiastic critical reviews and sales. It debuted at #2 on the UK album charts, nudged along by the buzz generated by London Grammar's earlier EP, Metal and Dust, and a high-profile collaboration with Disclosure on their slinky single "Help Me Lose My Mind."
When London Grammar — Hannah Reid, Dot Major and Dan Rothman — passed through New York earlier this fall, they dropped by The Alternate Side and FUV Live to talk about their friendship and artistic vision.
