TAS On FUV For Wednesday, August 28

by Kara Manning

On tonight's TAS on FUV, an eclectic mix of music from San Fermin, Radiohead, Poliça with Justin Vernon, DJ Shadow, Clinic, Yuck and Air. The Gentlemen of the Road tour with Mumford and Sons, The Vaccines and Bear's Den has taken over Forest Hills Stadium in Queens this evening so it seemed the right time for a Shuffle from The Vaccines. Also, MGMT and Soulwax collide for The Mix-Up.

Ever notice how some musicians assume alter egos — or more charismatic versions of themselves — onstage? On tonight's TAS on FUV, we'll spin some of those bigger-than-life characters like Empire of the Sun, The Flaming Lips, Suede, Primal Scream and The Shuffle featuring Bonnie "Prince" Billy Lykke Li and Gold Panda join hands for The Mix-Up too. That's TAS on FUV tonight at 10!

On Monday's TAS on FUV, Russ Borris is off for the week and has handed me the keys to his show ... and, of course, his Moz Monday Shuffle. Expect a fine mix of music from Haim, Yuck, Slowdive, IO Echo, Underworld, The Pastels, Austra and much more. The Mix-Up brings together two frequent collaborators, Animal Collective and Pantha du Prince, for an especially beautiful remix. That's TAS on FUV tonight at 10!

The Polyphonic Spree - FUV Live - 2013

by Alisa Ali

When former Tripping Daisy frontman Tim DeLaughter first announced that he would be putting together a choral symphonic pop band with members in the double digits, many thought it was just schtick and doubted the band would survive for long. It's fair to say the skeptics were wrong, since over a decade later Tim and his band The Polyphonic Spree are still going strong. In fact, today marks the release of their 5th full length album, Yes, It's True.

We hear some of the new songs and talk with The Polyphonic Spree mastermind Tim DeLaughter during this episode of FUV Live.
