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 Pop City's Patrick Bowman
In case you missed, it here's what Patrick played:
- Norman, Oklahoma proto-punks Broncho have homed in on garage rock aesthetic that melds together the work of bands like Television, The Pretenders, and The Buzzcocks. The first track off their sophomore album Just Enough Hip to be Woman swaggers with attitude, giving the impression that Broncho were a long lost act from the Lower East Side punk scene of late 70s New York.
Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, "Billions of Eyes"
- "Billions of Eyes" is the first single from After, the sophomore release from Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, aka Brunswick, Maine, singer songwriter Aly Spaltro. Along with acts like Angel Olsen, Sharon Van Etten, and Waxahatchee, Spaltro has infused her folky songwriting with nods from classic 90s alternative rock. "Billions of Eyes" is rife with noodly guitar lines, poppy choruses, and the sort of disaffected, surreal lyrics that recall Frank Black's weirdness from the Pixies.
