Squirrel flower's Ella Williams searches for kernels of truth in trying times. There's a restless 3 a.m. mood to much of her music, anchored by exhaustion, revelation, and dreams. She's a storyteller and for FUV's "Five Essential Albums," as we conclude this month's "Ascending Women" series, Ella writes about records from other storytellers, including Bruce Springsteen and Liz Phair. Read Ella's full list via the link below and look for her new EP, #Planet on Polyvinyl Record Co.

For this final week of Womens History Month and FUV's "Ascending Women" series, we asked London's Nilüfer Yanya to contribute her FUV "Five Essential Albums." Her second album, #PAINLESS, refines her focus from the conceptual landscape of her debut album, 'Miss Universe,' to something that veers closer to the uneasy beauty of Radiohead. Nilüfer's guitar work roams from blistering to delicate, often in the same track. That gear shift between tender and tough is reflected in Nilüfer's choices for her "Five Essential Albums," like 'Devotion' from Tirzah, whom she calls an "enigma of music" and PIXIES 's 'Doolittle' ("music can be kinda weird but catchy at the same time.") Read Nilüfer Yanya's "Five Essential Albums" here:

The Foo Fighters' mighty Taylor Hawkins, who suddenly passed away yesterday in Bogotá, Colombia where the band was on tour, played drums with such absolute joy, fervor, and rock 'n' roll mastery. We can't fathom that he's gone. Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl, who described Hawkins as his "best friend and partner in crime," wrote about their partnership in his 2021 memoir 'The Storyteller: Tales of Life and Music' as: "Part Beavis and Butthead, part Dumb and Dumber, we were a hyperactive blur of Parliament Lights and air drumming wherever we went."

Did any of you see Foo Fighters at MSG on June 20, 2021 or have memories of Taylor Hawkins?

Los Angeles punk rockers The Linda Lindas are on the verge of blasting off in 2022 with their smart, exhilarating debut album, Growing Up, out next month on Epitaph Records. It's an extraordinary accomplishment for any band, but especially when you consider the ages of these very young (and ferocious) musicians: sisters Mila (drummer) and Lucia (guitarist) de la Garza (11 and 15), their cousin, bassist Eloise Wong (14), and friend, guitarist Bella Salazar (17). For FUV's "Five Essential Albums," linked below, we asked The Linda Lindas to each write about an album they love — but as a band, the choice was universal: the Go-Go's' 'Beauty and the Beat.'
