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: Wye Oak, "Before" - This is the lead track from the Baltimore duo's latest album, Shriek, which sounds considerably different from their past work, because it was written without any guitar. It's still a pretty great record, and that speaks to Wye Oak's songwriting capabilities. Pujol, "Circles" - The latest from the Nashville garage-rocker is called Kludge, and this song is one of the highlights. Good, smart writing laid over hard-rocking guitars, and a great tune for summer.
