The Antlers: TAS In Session

The Antlers first started making real traction in 2009 when they released their third full-length album, Hospice. As the title suggests, that record dealt with some pretty weighty subject matter, but it was presented in such a moving way that it was impossible not to get swept away by it. Since then, the Brooklyn trio has continued to hone their craft of creating stirring sonic landscapes. The Antlers' latest release, Familiars, is a thoughtful and deliberately-paced collection of songs that instills calmness and warmth. Watch videos of The Antlers during their recent visit to Studio A and listen to the entire session now in the FUV Vault or on TAS on 91.5 WNYE on Friday, June 25, at 11a.m., EDT, also streaming online.

Cloud Nothings: TAS In Session

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. They'll play the Pitchfork Music Festival this weekend and head back to New York this fall for a show at Irving Plaza on October 7. Watch Cloud Nothings' seismic performance in FUV's Studio A and listen to their session in the FUV Vault or on TAS on 91.5 WNYE on Friday, July 18, at 11a.m. EDT, also streaming online.

Lyla Foy: FUV Live

When Lyla Foy released her debut EP, Shoestring, she did so using the moniker WALL, still uncertain of attaching a solo identity to still-nascent songs. However, the London-based Foy, currently on tour with Phosphorescent in Europe, finally shed the protective fortress of WALL while recording her full-length debut, Mirrors the Sky. It's a sensitive and stirring excursion through stormy relationships, showcasing Foy's dreamy vocals. Watch videos from Lyla Foy's springtime performance in FUV's Studio A, listen to her full session now in the FUV Vault or catch it on TAS on 91.5 WNYE this Friday, July 11, at 11a.m. EDT, also streaming online.

Dean Wareham: FUV Live

After making music for almost 30 years with three bands—Galaxie 500, Luna and Dean & BrittaDean Wareham finally released a solo album earlier this year, produced by My Morning Jacket's Jim James. Aficionados of Wareham's previous rock incarnations won't feel any seismic shifts on his self-titled record; in fact, the album embraces all phases of the songwriter's storied career. This spring, Dean Wareham visited WFUV to share some of those new compositions and tossed in a classic Luna song, "Lost in Space," too. Watch videos of Dean Wareham live in Studio A, listen to the session now in the FUV Vault or catch it on The Alternate Side on 91.5 WNYE this Friday, July 4, at 11a.m., EDT, also streaming online.

Wild Beasts: TAS In Session

Wild Beasts' fourth album, Present Tense, finds the British band evolving dramatically, leaning on more synths and less guitar.

Watch videos of Wild Beasts playing selections from Present Tense in Studio A,  listen to the band's session with The Alternate Side's Alisa Ali now in the FUV Vault or on TAS on 91.5 WNYE today, June 27, at 11a.m., also streaming online.
