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 Mervis
In case you missed it here's what he played with commentary by Scott.
Jimmer Podrasky, "She Has Good Records" - Jimmer wrote this song back in the late '70s when he formed The Rave-Ups here at CMU. He obviously had the Ramones on his mind, maybe even a little Phil Spector. The Rave-Ups never recorded it, but Jimmer, based in LA, has revived it for his first solo album, "The Would-Be Plans," and first new music in 24 years.
The Show, "One More Night"
- Here's a Pittsburgh band that could fool you into thinking their Brits. The Show, which just released the new album "Until you know what it's like to stand where there is no ground ," takes its cues from bands like Oasis and The Verve and pours its love into the Britpop sound.
