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
Stutter Steps, "Fog"
- Impressive debut single from a Pittsburgh indie-pop band fronted by Andy Warhol Museum special events curator Ben Harrison. He gets some guest slide guitar from Dean Wareham of national acts Luna on this song that has a nice hook and alluringly languid vocals. An enjoyable album throughout.
Escondido, "My Heart is Black"
- A little more intensity on this new single from the desert-rock/Spaghetti-western-loving Nashville duo. Jessica Maros' voice is a thing of beauty. The reverb-ed guitar work of Tyler James sets the mood. Says Jessica: "We wanted it to match the song’s sentiment and feel like a train going off the tracks."
