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!
Woods, "Sun City Creeps" - Woods does it again! For the ninth time! These Brooklyn freak-folk dudes are freakishly consistent, and also amazingly prolific. For fans, that means a new album almost every year with surprisingly few (none, to my count) duds in the bunch. "Sun City Creeps" is a fun, horn-driven little ditty with a sneaky groove from Woods' latest album "City Sun Eater in the River of Light."
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, "No Love Like Yours" - The flower cult king has returned. Edwarde Sharpe may always be that guy who sang your hipster cousin's wedding song ("Home"). On his third album with the Magnetic Zeroes, he takes a less sing-songy approach with some stretched out, darker performances. But on first single "No Love Like Yours," we've got his familiar sound — a happy-go-lucky chorus, some rambling group vocals and lots of singin' about love.
