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: Janelle Monae, "Dance Apocalyptic" - Who doesn't like Janelle Monae? This is the first track released from her upcoming album The Electric Lady, set for a September release. Get down with weird robots. Samantha Crain, "Paint" - A song about growing old, from a 26-year-old -- though, to be fair, she started touring at age 19, so she IS a veteran. This is from Crain's new album, produced by John Vanderslice -- the production is minimal but effective.
