Real Estate: FUV Live

Back in 2011, FUV host Darren DeVivo discovered Real Estate while listened to The Alternate Side—not bad when music discovery begins at home! Beguiled 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 and the band has just announced a show at Terminal 5 on October 2. Just recenty, 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.

Los Campesinos!: TAS In Session

Over the last eight years, the music of Los Campesinos! has straddled both the irreverent and serious, the wise and the witty. Frontman Gareth "Campesinos" Paisey's lyrics briskly percolate with personal and pop culture references, leapfrogging from soccer puns to romantic strife. The Welsh band's latest album, No Blues, might be their strongest to date and earlier this winter the sextet stopped by FUV and TAS for a session. Watch videos of Los Campesinos! in Studio A, listen to the conversation now in the FUV Vault or hear the band's session this Friday, March 7, on TAS on 91.5 WNYE at 11a.m. EST, also streaming online.

Just enter for a chance to win by this Sunday, March 9.

Win Tix To Warpaint At Webster Hall On March 21

Tags:

The women of Warpaint took their time writing and recording their second, self-titled album,  a four-year journey that led them down a more ambient, experimental path. Guided by Flood, who produced, and Nigel Godrich, who mixed the record, Warpaint is a thoughtful detour for the quartet, reflecting their admitted infatuation with rap and R&B during the album's gestation. Warpaint will be touring much of this year and will arrive at New York's Webster Hall for a sold-out show on March 21. Enter to win tickets from The Alternate Side by this Sunday, March 9, at 5pm EST. Opening is the wiry and wry Cate Le Bon.
