Philip Selway: FUV Live

Already known for his drumming and background vocal work with Radiohead, Philip Selway is finally being recognized for his songwriting talents. In 2010, he released his solo debut, Familial. He is back now with his sophomore effort, Weatherhouse, and the new album shows the great growth and depth of his musicianship. Watch videos of Philip Selway in Studio A and listen to his full session now in the FUV Vault or on TAS on 91.5 WNYE on Friday, December 19, at 11 a.m. EST, also streaming online.

Teleman: TAS In Session

The London trio Teleman consists of brothers Thomas and Jonny Sanders and Pete Cattermoul. Although the guys released their debut album, Breakfast, earlier this year, they have all played together before in the band, Pete and The Pirates. That band had a bigger, bouncier rock feel, but Teleman takes a more stripped-back approach with a darker, synth-laden sound. Watch videos of Teleman in Studio A performing two songs from Breakfast and listen to their session and interview in the FUV Vault or via TAS on 91.5 WNYE on Friday, December 12, at 11 a.m. EST, also streaming online.

Cymbals Eat Guitars: TAS In Session

The Staten Island quartet Cymbals Eat Guitars first made waves in 2009 with its critically acclaimed, self-released debut, Why There Are Mountains. On the band's third and most recent album Lose, there's a noticeable lyrical maturation, courtesy of singer and guitarist Joseph D’Agostino, and bolder sonic strides from the rest of the band. Cymbals Eat Guitars will play a hometown show at Brooklyn's The Knitting Factory on December 12. Earlier this fall they came to the Bronx for a session with The Alternate Side. Watch videos of Cymbals Eat Guitars in Studio A and listen to the entire session now in the FUV Vault or on TAS on 91.5 WNYE today, December 5, at 11a.m. EST, also streaming online.

The Wytches: TAS In Session

The Wytches' Kristian Bell, Daniel Rumsey and Gianni Honey have a lot of influences that might not be immediately plain by listening to the group's debut, Annabel Dream Reader. This makes for a rich and rewarding listening experience beyond the Black Sabbath and Misfits foundation that their name suggests. The Wytches are back in New York, playing Brooklyn's Baby's All Right on November 22 and Mercury Lounge on November 24.  Watch videos of The Wytches in Studio A and listen to the session now in the FUV Vault or on TAS on 91.5 WNYE today, November 21, at 11am EST, also streaming online.

Metronomy: TAS In Session

Despite the somewhat wistful lyrics scattered across the breadth of Metronomy's most recent release, Love Letters, frontman Joseph Mount is really quite content. For Metronomy's set for The Alternate Side and FUV, Mount and bandmate Oscar Cash played "The Upsetter" and "Reservoir," two highlights from Love Letters. They also offered up some candid and surprisingly harsh opinions on aging and rock and roll (only Robert Plant escapes unscathed) and discussed the band's video-making experience with director Michel Gondry. Watch videos from Metronomy's set, listen to the session now in the FUV Vault or on TAS on 91.5 WNYE today, November 7, at 11a.m. EST, also streaming online.
