Every Wednesday at 9:13 am, one of Pittsburgh’s finest music writers joins me (Cindy Howes) on the Morning Mix to play a couple favorite new songs and share some insight. Today we welcome Pop City's Patrick Bowman

In case you missed, it here's what Patrick played:

Neon Indian, “Annie” - Austin-based Alan Polomo became one of the big names in the microgenre of Chillwave when he released his debut Psychic Chasms in 2009. He’s back a new single “Annie” and the rumor of a third full-length coming in the next year. “Annie” is like an evolved version of what Polomo made his name on: gone are the lo-fi trappings that made his dance music sound like a warped cassette tape stuck in an old Honda Civic, and replaced with pristine production that allows the gorgeously weird, island-inflected beats to pop in high definition.

Gwenno, “Chwyldro” - Welsh singer/songwriter Gwenno was most famously known for her work in the Pipettes, a British-60’s throwback girl group that made a little stir in the early aughts, but her solo work is much, much different. “Chwyldro,” the first track on her her full-length sophomore album Y Dydd Olaf, which is is going to be released in July, has Gwenno working in a ghostly meter and spacey production. The fact that she sings the song in her native Welsh only adds to the otherwordly quality.

Every Wednesday at 9:13 am, one of WYEP’s trusted music experts joins me (Cindy Howes) on The Morning Mix to play a couple favorite new songs and share some insight. Today we welcome Sarah Wardrop from WFUV in New York!

In case you missed, it here’s what she played:

Heartless Bastards, Hi-Line - Restless Ones from Heartless Bastards leans a bit more acoustic than the Austin-based band's past four albums, but it's not at all a bad thing, partly because it lets the voice of Erika Wennerstrom stand out even more. She can wail and she can bring a low lonesome sound to her band's songs. In the case of this more uptempo track, there's a bit of both along with a nice shift in the chorus.

Ratatat, Cream on Chrome - Sometimes a good tune doesn't need a voice to make it sing, and this one from the Brooklyn-based Ratatat is a new instrumental classic. The duo is set to release its fifth album, Magnifique, in July, but they've already added a perfect driving song to this summer's soundtrack.

Every Wednesday at 9:13 am, one of WYEP’s trusted music experts joins me (Cindy Howes) on The Morning Mix to play a couple favorite new songs and share some insight. Today we welcome Jess Phaneuf from MVY Radio on Martha's Vineyard!

In case you missed, it here’s what she played:

Melody Gardot "Preacherman" - As a big fan of Melody Gardot's soft, sweet, jazzy songs, it took me a minute to accept that she has shifted her sound to a more gritty, dark, Americana vibe with this new single. Once I accepted the change, I really grew to love this track!

Will Dailey, "Castle Of Pretending" - This Boston-based musician really nailed his latest album, National Throat, and this is one of my favorite tracks. It starts out slow and dreamy, with a killer guitar solo towards the end and some unexpected trumpet thrown in!

Every Wednesday at 9:13 am, one of Pittsburgh’s finest music writers joins me (Cindy Howes) on the Morning Mix to play a couple favorite new songs and share some insight. Today we welcome Scott Tady!

In case you missed it here’s what he played with commentary by Scott:

Richard Thompson, "All Buttoned Up" - More masterful wordplay and savory guitar from
the esteemed rocking folkie who's headlining the Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival on June 12. This track, a lighter side of Thompson's new, Jeff Tweedy-produced album, "Still," arriving June 23rd, finds our hero wryly lamenting a pretty girl not paying him attention. Doesn't she know he's Richard Thompson?

Nightjacket, "The Right Way to Fall" - enticing, atmospheric dream pop powered by the lovely, heartfelt vocals of opera-trained Holland Belle. Get hip now to this promising L.A. band whose debut album arrives June 23.
