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 Dandy Warhols: TAS In Session

Few bands have had as fraught a history with labels as the Dandy Warhols. After squabbling with Capitol for years, the band has finally found a new home, The End Records, and has  released their tenth album, The Machine, this past spring. Not long ago, singer and guitarist Courtney Taylor-Taylor and drummer/guitarist Brent DeBoer came by TAS' Studio A for a stripped-down session of new songs from The Machine and older material, like "Country Leaver" from 2000's Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia. Watch the live performance videos and listen to the session when it airs on TAS on 91.5 WNYE this Friday, August 10, at 11 a.m. EDT and streaming on the TAS site.
