Warpaint: TAS In Session

The second weekend of Coachella is upon us and Warpaint is on the bill. We've been caught in "The Undertow" of this L.A.-based band since 2010, when Warpaint released their excellent debut,The Fool. There is now a new, self-titled release which expands upon their atmospheric vibe. Although the band incorporated other sonic textures and a more meticulous approach to arrangment, Warpaint still maintains that same spooky vibe that filtered through their earlier work. Watch videos of Warpaint  performing in Studio A and listen to an interview with the band in the FUV Vault

Active Child: TAS In Session

Not many bands claim the harp as one of their defining sounds, but Active Child's Pat Grossi has brought that ethereal instrument into the mix to accompany his thoughtful, choirboy vocals. The band, now a trio, released its debut album, You Are All I See, in August and they have been steadily touring in support of that dreamy release, supporting M83 on the road this fall (including two sold-out gigs at Webster Hall on November 22 and  Music Hall of Williamsburg on November 23). Not long ago, Grossi and his bandmates visited The Alternate Side to chat about the very personal nature of the new album and performed new songs like "High Priestess" and "Hanging On," one of the new tracks now featured on the deluxe edition of You Are All I Need. Listen to the session this Friday, November 25 on TAS on 91.5 WNYE at 11 a.m. ET or streaming on The Alternate Side.
