The 9:13 Buzz with Justin Jacobs

1buzz_web 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! Roadkill Ghost Choir, A Blow to the Head -  Many moons ago, I played these guys on the Buzz and Cindy totally flipped. That was the Florida band's first single, Beggar's Guild. On this first single from the band's first full length album (In Tongues, out Aug. 19), they've bulked up their sound, stretched out the jams and turned up the volume. But they still sound like a mutant version of My Morning Jacket. Big things in the future for this Choir. Trampled by Turtles, Are You Behind the Shining Star - Boy, oh boy, these guys sound great. Minnesota's TbyT has moved farther from traditional bluegrass with each release, and their upcoming album Wild Animals, out July 15, is just gorgeous acoustic songs led by Dave Simonnett's beautiful, clear voice. Great open sky music.
