The 9:13 Buzz with Andy Mulkerin

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 Andy Mulkerin of Pittsburgh's City Paper. In case you missed it here's what he played with commentary by Andy: Mariage Blanc, "Undercurrents" - This is the title track from the local band's new EP; in addition to the band's production skills, the new record exhibits some progression toward more rhythm-section-centered, groove-based stuff. Mount Moriah, "Younger Days" - This North Carolina band, consisting of some folks from other good bands (Heather from Bellafea, Jenks from Horseback), is readying its second full-length, and its first issued by Merge. Good, pretty, country-ish stuff from some folks known for harder rock.
