The 9:13 Buzz with Scott Tady
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 of The Beaver County Times. In case you missed it here's what he played (with commentary by Scott): Sean Rowe, “Bring Back the Night” - Alt-folk artist Rowe’s remarkable, emotion-stirring baritone is put to great use on the nature-loving, upstate New Yorkers’ “The Shark and The Salesman” album released yesterday. Instrumentation is sparse and the vocal delivery is unhurried, but there’s plenty of feeling and power. Gypsy and his Band of Ghosts, “Vagabond” - Giuseppe Capolupo sounds like someone who should be playing striker for A.C. Milan. He’s actually a former heavy metal drummer indulging his folk-pop side fronting this gifted Pittsburgh band. This particular radio edit, fine-tuned to make its debut today on WYEP, is representative of the upbeat, intelligent and infectious songwriting on the band’s six-song album that debuts Tuesday. Reminds me a bit of Good Old War. See Gypsy and His Band of Ghosts this Saturday at the South Park Rib & Wing Challenge.
