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!
In case you missed it here’s what he played with commentary by Justin!
Albert Hammond Jr., "Born Slippy" - Oh lord, why can't The Strokes be this much fun anymore? This is the lead track on (Strokes guitarist) Albert Hammond Jr.'s latest solo album, Momentary Masters, and it's four minutes of pinging guitars, catchy melodies and danceable drums. With Strokes singer Julian Casablancas also releasing quality solo material, maybe this is a sign that the whole is no longer better than the sum of the parts? Either way, you'll love "Born Slippy."
Deradoorian, "A Beautiful Woman" - Angel Deradoorian has played in the Dirty Projectors and with members of Animal Collective. But on her solo album, The Expanding Flower Planet, she's her own woman. This track is a gorgeous, psychedelic, vaguely Middle Eastern-sounding jam packed with weird effects and layered vocals.
