Revisit FUV and NPR Music Newport Folk Festival Coverage

Team FUV spent the weekend at the Newport Folk Festival with our friends from NPR Music. We've uploaded music from the main stage, which we're archiving in the FUV Vault. Photos of all the action are going onto our Flickr stream and you can catch up on all of highlights—which included sets from Ryan Adams, Jenny Lewis, Conor Oberst, Thao and the Get Down Stay Down and more—by heading to WFUV's Newport coverage.

Sally Seltmann: Five Essential Albums

While still using the moniker New Buffalo, Australian singer-songwriter Sally Seltmann released two albums and co-wrote Feist's massive hit "1234." Seltmann now records under her own name, when not juggling her other band, Seeker Lover Keeper, and she released the blissful, breezy Hey Daydreamer in March. Seltmann will play New York's Rockwood Music Hall on June 17. Since she's one of Australia's songwriting treasures and professes admiration for everyone from Tiny Ruins to Madonna, The Alternate Side thought it was a fine time to ask Sally Seltmann for her Five Essential Albums.
