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:
Vaadat Charigim, "Haolam Avad Mizman" - (העולם אבד מזמן) That's right folks, this song is in Hebrew. The band's name means 'Exceptions Committee,' and they are one of just a few Israeli indie bands in recent years to launch a US tour, which will begin at SXSW later this month. Their sound is dark, shadowy guitar rock that reminds me of The Cure, but the press have already taken a liking to 'Israeli Shoegaze.'
Jonathan Wilson - Love to Love - This old soul is a singer-songwriter with quite a CV, considering you've probably never heard of him. He's played with folks from the Grateful Dead and CSNY, as well as Jackson Browne, Benmont Tench and others. A few of those famous friends show up here, on his new album Fanfare.
