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
of City Paper!
In case you missed it here's what he played with commentary from Andy
The Juliana Hatfield Three, "Ordinary Guy"
- This band returns with its first record in over 20 years; it's a simple power-pop-meets-'90s-alt-rock tune about a topic that surely resonates with many -- shitty boyfriends. It's slightly silly, kinda serious, and just generally enjoyable. Welcome back, Juliana Hatfield Three!
Pops Staples "Somebody Was Watching"
- The patriarch of the Staple Singers has been gone for over 15 years, but daughter Mavis Staples and Jeff Tweedy got together recently to breathe new life into some of his last recordings. The Mavis-and-Tweedy-produced disc will come out later this year; this is the first tune Anti- Records released.
