Panama Wedding - FUV Live - 2014

by Russ Borris

The New York City-based band Panama Wedding is the synth-pop ensemble behind the hit single, “All Of The People.” The exuberant pop song reached nearly one million plays on the band’s SoundCloud, and the mastermind behind Panama Wedding, Peter Kirk, believes their popularity has yet to peak. The band has released its debut EP, Parallel Play, and a full-length album is expected to follow soon.

Philip Selway - FUV Live - 2014

by Alisa Ali

Already known for his drumming and background vocal work with Radiohead, Philip Selway is finally being recognized for his songwriting talents. In 2010, he released his solo debut, Familial, which was a stirring set of largely acoustic-based songs. He is back now with his sophomore effort, Weatherhouse, and the new album shows the great growth and depth of his musicianship. The new album has a much broader sonic palette with more layers and textures than that of his previous solo work. The record actually feels like a natural extension of the Radiohead sound.
