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! In case you missed it here's what he played with commentary by Andy. Broken Fences, "Stormy Clouds" - This is the title track off the local folky duo's new EP, which comes out Friday. Morgan Erina's vocals remind me a bit of Sharon Van Etten early on, and also always bring to mind some of those mid- and late-'60s songstresses like Joni Mitchell. Beautiful stuff on this record. Triggers, "Ambulance Chaser" - This one's off the local rock band's new EP, What Part of Strangers Don't You Understand? Triggers keep building their reputation as one of our best indie-rock outfits; great vocals, catchy melodies and cool synth stuff going on here. This one's also out Friday.
