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!
In case you missed it here's what he played with commentary by Scott. Click the title to hear the song!
Morcheeba, “Make Believer”
The U.K. band that started out trip-hop now gets all dub-steppy here on this single from their month-old album. It’s just a good, lounge-y love song highlighting the alluring voice of Skye Edwards.
LA Font - “Diving Man”
Imagine if 1990s alt-rock band Semisonic had followed up “Closing Time” by adding a new singer; say, The Cure’s Robert Smith, or Black 47’s Larry Kirwin of Black 47. I’d bet it would sound a lot like this new L.A. group fronted by Danny Bobbe, who was born in Alaska, raised in Utah and went to college in Montana. His background gives him an outsiders’ perspective befitting this song about handling homesickness one dive bar at a time.
