Every Wednesday at 9:13 am, one of our most trusted music aficionados joins me (Cindy Howes) on the Morning Mix to play a couple favorite new songs and share some insight. Today we welcome Justin Jacobs!Quilt, "Eliot St." - This Boston band has been bubbling under the surface of the psychedelic folk scene for a few albums now, but their upcoming "Plaza," out in February, aims to change that. The band is among peers with Real Estate and Woods, but they add a refined sound to their catchy, weird little jams that set them apart. Think psychedelic rock via The Beatles' White Album rather than The Grateful Dead.
Israel Nash, "LA Lately" - This is the latest single from current Texas resident Israel Nash — he recorded his new album, Silver Season, in the studio he built himself on his 15-acre ranch. As such, his folk rock feels wide open, his songs full of space. Nash is most often compared to a modern day Neil Young, and the similarities are hard to ignore. Just take a listen to the guy's gentle falsetto on this beautiful track. Guaranteed to put you in a great mood, and want to take a long, long drive.
