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.

Every Wednesday at 9:13 am, one of WYEP’s trusted music experts joins me (Cindy Howes) on The Morning Mix to play a couple favorite new songs and share some insight. Today we welcome Sarah Wardrop from WFUV in New York!

In case you missed, it here’s what she played:

Freakwater, Bolshevik and Bollweevil - I confess to knowing the band's name more than its music until recently, but Freakwater's history stretches back into the '80s and now includes their first album in a decade, called Scheherazade. Led by Catherine Irwin and Janet Bean, it's a loose, old-timey sound with a dose of punk too, and Irwin's more Hazel Dickens/Lucinda Williams vocals and Bean's more Emmylou Harris tone mix in dissonance as much as harmony, especially in this song.

Quilt, Roller - Another recent discovery (for me) reminds me that I haven't lived in Boston for many years, because Quilt started making music together there back in 2008. Now the band is releasing its third album, called Plaza, this week. This song has a smooth, psychedelic feel, and the vocals of Anna Fox Rochinski and the steady bass groove grabbed my ear.

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:

Ron Pope & the Nighthawks, "Hell or High Water" - Averaging 15 million Pandora spins per month, indie-folk-pop singer Pope releases this debut from his new band, The Nighthawks. Peppy horns, buoyant piano, tight guitar and soulful vocals ... all present and accounted for. Says Pope, "This song more so than any of the others reminds me of what it’s like to run with the ‘Hawks on the road, up on stage sweating, dancing until I almost fall over, watching a room full of people lose it as we get loose."

Holy Wave, "She Put a Seed in My Ear" - From out in the West Texas town of El Paso, people are falling in love with this psych-rock band. Vocals have that hazy/dreamy vibe, though the guitar is more focused, the hooks more crystalline than some of their neo-shoegazer peers. Pitchfork dropped comparisons to early Kinks (I'm not quite hearing that) and "Nuggets" psychedelic-garage rock (I'll buy that.)

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 Patrick Bowman!

In case you missed, it here's what Patrick played:

Massive Attack feat. Young Fathers, “Voodoo in My Blood” - The godfathers of Triphop just dropped the Ritual Spirit EP, their first release since 2010s Heliogoland, and it’s an exciting, lively, suitably tar black four songs that proves these guys aren’t over the hill yet. My favorite track is titled “Voodoo in My Blood” which features a fire guest spot from scary good Scottish hip-hop trio Young Fathers, who are only a few years removed for winning the Mercury Prize from their debut album Dead, and it also shows how Massive Attack are going out and finding new, challenging collaborators.

Bibio, “Feeling” - Bibio is the project of UK-based singer/songwriter/producer Stephen Wilkinson who has a penchant for building songs around obscure folk guitar samples that sound like they were dipped in analog recording warmth before he spliced them into his own track. His 2009 record Ambivalence Avenue was one of my favorites that year, and really puts his “folktronica” into focus. His next album A Mineral Love is due out in April and he just dropped the super funky first single “Feeling” which sounds like he was the art school brother to the Bee Gees that no one ever talked about.
