The 9:13 Buzz with Justin Jacobs
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 Justin Jacobs! In case you missed it here's what he played with commentary by Justin: Au Revoir Simone, "Crazy" - This Brooklyn all-lady trio is back with their first record since 2009, and boy is it catchy! They nail a late-night, dreamy vibe but make it danceable - like if Beach House were less boring and liked to party. This track is about as up beat as the new album, "Move In Spectrums" gets, but the whole thing is well worth your time. Best Coast, "Fear of My Identity" - Best Coast is back with a mini-album - and it's a shame there aren't more songs here, because the 7 included are great. Seriously, it took me half my workday to pick which track to play here. The record is all fast hooks, great vocals, crunchy guitars and the band's usual lyrics about being kinda-heartbroken while sounding all sunshine-y.
