Horse Thief: Listen To FUV Live At CMJ 2014

Horse Thief's latest release, Fear in Bliss, is a beautifully crafted album, driven by melodic guitar and layers of texture. It represents a band that is embracing its sound and coming into its own. I was really excited to see these songs performed live and they did not disappoint.

Happyness: Listen To FUV Live At CMJ 2014

Making their Stateside radio debut on FUV Live at CMJ, London's Happyness delivered a sunny, cheeky and confident set of songs mostly found on their excellent debut album, Weird Little Birthday, which was released in the UK this past summer.

Son Little: Listen To FUV Live At CMJ 2014

One of the main objectives of the CMJ Music Marathon (and WFUV for that matter) is to expose new music talent, and Son Little is a great example of that mission. Although he has lent his voice to The Roots and RJD2, Philadelphia's Aaron Livingston is still relatively unknown for his work as Son Little. He has only released three singles so far, but based on the strength of his songs and now an EP, Things I Forgot, released this fall, we are confident that Son Little's name will soon be much more widely known.

Happyness: FUV Live At CMJ 2014

Happyness, a savvy trio from London, mine the fuzzed-out, brusque beauty of '90s melodic rock. Not grunge, mind you, but the heady heights of Pavement, The Lemonheads, the Flaming Lips and Yo La Tengo, finding a very fresh spin on a familiar American imprint. Happyness will be joining Horse Thief, Son Little and Elle King for WFUV and The Alternate Side's CMJ Music Marathon showcase, FUV Live at CMJ, on Tuesday, October 21, at Rockwood Music Hall in New York City from 5-9pm. The showcase, the very essence of FUV's mission of music discovery, will be broadcast live on 90.7FM WFUV, also streaming online.  In addition, a 12-inch vinyl EP, featuring one song from each band, will be recorded and pressed at Rockwood Music Hall that night and given away to FUV listeners at the event. FUV Live at CMJ is supported by Squarespace.

The Alternate Side is a proud part of WFUV Public Radio from Fordham University,
