Neighbours

"On My Mind, In My Heart" by Jesse Dee! That's today's Cool Kids pick, so Jesse Dee is certainly on our minds and in our hearts. He played at WYEP's free Summer Music Festival alongside Neighbours, Jason Isbell, and Anders Osborne, and he's a super cool dude. This song is particularly fun, and if you like sax you're sure to love it. Be sure to keep WYEP on your mind and in your hearts, especially during this time of giving!

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 Mervis of The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

In case you missed it here's what he played with commentary by Scott:

Neighbours, "Tell the Truth" - You gotta love a new song that sounds like it could have been on the "Nuggets" boxed set of classic garage-rock and soul. That's part of what producer Derek White (The New Shouts) brings to the table for this Pittsburgh band that features singer-keyboardist Michael Cunningham, singer-guitarist Ross Reilly, bassist Joe Tarowsky and drummer Andy Mulkerin (heard here on the 9:13 Buzz). This is the opening track of an album that shows influences ranging from the Zombies to the Jam.

Blue of Colors, "This is A Story" - Blue of Colors is the spinoff project of Punchline singer Steve Soboslai, who stretches out from the pop-punk formula on this finely crafted set of songs about love on the rocks.

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 Mervis of The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

In case you missed it here's what he played with commentary by Scott:

The War on Drugs, "Brothers" - My first thought was, 'Wow, this sounds so much like Kurt Vile.' Then I found out he used to be in this Philadelphia band. Adam Granduciel is a kindred spirit to Vile, sharing an interest in hazy, guitar-driven psych-rock with a Dylan and Petty influence. Adam sings a lot like Dylan on this track, but it's more winking tribute than rehash.

Neighbours, "Real Talk" - If you live within shouting distance of Pittsburgh band Neighbours, what you're hearing from the rehearsal space ranges from Who-era power pop to Motown to blue-eyed soul. This track has the quartet, which formed in 2009 and features fellow 9:13 Buzz contributor Andy Mulkerin on drums, spinning along like The Four Tops.
