The Asteroids Galaxy Tour: TAS In Session

Back in 2009, an amazing song called "Around the Bend," by a Danish band called The Asteroids Galaxy Tour, appeared in an Apple commercial.  Their debut album Fruit showed off the group's quirky style and the unique voice of frontwoman Mette Lindberg. The Asteroids Galaxy Tour has a new album, Bring Us Together, and it does that very thing. The songs are outrageously catchy and fun. Watch videos of The Asteroids Galaxy Tour playing songs from Bring Us Together in Studio A, listen to the session now in the FUV Vault or on TAS on 91.5 WNYE on Friday, January 30, at 11 a.m. EST, also streaming online.

The Raveonettes: FUV Live

Tags:

Earlier this year, the Danish duo The Raveonettes released their seventh full-length album, Pe'ahi. In typical Raveonettes fashion, the songs on the new album veer towards darker subject matter, but this time the songs were more personal for Sune Rose Wagner as he dealt with his father's death during the making of the record. Like many people, music helped Wagner deal with this situation and he and his partner, Sharin Foo, ended up making a brilliant record that marks a huge sonic leap forward for the band. Watch videos of The Raveonettes in Studio A and listen to the session on TAS on 91.5 WNYE today, November 14, at 11a.m. EST, also streaming online or via the FUV Vault at any time.
