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:
Courtney Barnett, "Avant Gardener"- I had an old-fashioned "remember some of these lyrics so you can search them online later and find out who this is" moment when I first heard this song in the car. Courtney Barnett is an Austrailian singer-songwriter with a droll, charming style and an immense talent with words. Hopefully she makes it to Pittsburgh sometime soon.
Clare Maguire, "Paper Thin" - Clare Maguire is a British singer-songwriter who deals mostly in jazzy pop with minimalist, electronic production. My real favorite song off her recent free mixtape is "Whenever You Want It," but it has naughty words in it, so I settled for playing my second favorite, "Paper Thin."
