Warpaint: TAS In Session

The second weekend of Coachella is upon us and Warpaint is on the bill. We've been caught in "The Undertow" of this L.A.-based band since 2010, when Warpaint released their excellent debut,The Fool. There is now a new, self-titled release which expands upon their atmospheric vibe. Although the band incorporated other sonic textures and a more meticulous approach to arrangment, Warpaint still maintains that same spooky vibe that filtered through their earlier work. Watch videos of Warpaint  performing in Studio A and listen to an interview with the band in the FUV Vault

 

Real Estate: FUV Live

Back in 2011, FUV host Darren DeVivo discovered Real Estate while listening to The Alternate Side—not bad when music discovery begins at home! Beguiled by the New Jersey group's knack for jangling guitars, richly-woven melodies and catchy hooks, he became a fervent fan and recently interviewed Real Estate for FUV. The band released its third album, Atlas, earlier this year they've  just announced a show at Terminal 5 on October 2. Earlier ths spring, the guys visited FUV's Studio A for a session, available now in the FUV Vault. Watch videos of live performances of Real Estate's "Crime," "Primitive" and more.

Milagres: WFUV Live

The latest release from the Brooklyn-based Milagres is called Violent Light and it finds the band refining its icy synthpop sound.

Not long ago the men Milagres, who mark the release of Violent Light with a show at Bowery Ballroom on April 10, stopped by Studio A for a conversation.
