Live Friday at Noon: David Ford

Singer-songwriter David Ford debuted on the UK indie rock scene with the band Easyworld and quickly established a solo career with ‘I Sincerely Apologise For All The Trouble I’ve Caused’ the following year. His songs, while driven by their catchy acoustic melodies, are noted for poking fun at misery using irony. His breathy vocals and bluesy melodies present bouts of inspiration, which have been dexterously translated onto his second and latest solo album Songs For The Road.

Live Friday at Noon: The B-52s

Back after a 16-year hiatus from recording, the cheerfully hedonistic party band The B-52s returned to the public eye last month, releasing the appropriately titled Funplex. Though the group’s sound has been updated with more electronic sounds, there’s no mistaking these B-52s for anyone but the fun-loving oddballs behind "Love Shack" and "Rock Lobster."

Live Friday at Noon: The Raveonettes

The Danish duo The Raveonettes seemed like a bit of a novelty act at first, mixing ’50s and ’60s rock with harmonies inspired by The Everly Brothers and The Ronettes. But the band is no mere throwback, with an increasingly appealing and timeless rock catalog. The Raveonettes will perform a concert from World Café Live in Philadelphia and you can hear it Live Friday at Noon on
