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: Austra, "Home" - Unlike the scads of other popular songs about "home" lately, this one does not involve a banjo. Toronto-based Austra has a new album of goth-y, Pagan-ish dance pop coming out this summer, and this jam is the first single from it. Enjoy! Generationals, "Spinoza" - This band has a way of changing form all the time -- they do electronic pop, they do doo-wop-sounding stuff, but this one's just a straightforward rocker. They're coming to town later this month, too!
