The 9:13 Buzz with Scott Tady

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 Tady! In case you missed it here’s what he played with commentary by Scott. Terry Malts, “Don’t Go” – Pop-punk with substance from this San Francisco trio’s third release, the four-song EP “Insides” arriving Sept. 23. Fuzzed up guitar and rattling bass and drums carry the melody, masking a bit of the darkness and desperation of the singer begging a lover not to leave. Erasure, “Dead of Night” – Behold the synthy pop goodness from ‘80s masters of the craft, Erasure, back with a new album also out on Sept. 23. This isn’t the single, but it’s so catchy it could have been. Then again, catchy is a given for Erasure’s Andy Bell and Vince Clarke. In my Beaver County Times interview with Bell previewing the duo’s Sept. 28 Munhall concert, he said the song “kind of has to do with club culture and drug culture – the two are combined, or at least they used to be combined -- where you’re going to a club to chase after something and when that happens and you go home you find yourself in a dark space that makes you wonder if it was worth it.”
