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 of The Beaver County Times.
In case you missed it here's what he played (with commentary by Scott):
Antlers, "Drift Dive" - The Antlers can be found "Undersea," the well-chosen title of the Brooklyn indie-rock band's new 4-song EP, which has a watery, dreamy, ambience. Hawaiian pedal steel and Pete Silberman's floating,hypnotic vocals give this lead-off track a Sigur Ros-ish feel. The slow, steady buildup of intensity leads to a satisfying finish.
The Gaslight Anthem, "Mullholland Drive" - Brian Fallon's urgent singing and earnest lyrics are the high-octane fuel for this New Jersey band's punk-edged, blue-collar rock. The single off their fourth studio album is "45." Check out this deeper album cut, with lines like "I used to drive you all around with the radio on" and "In the deep, dark parking lot pressed up against my car/With your hands around my neck I felt the pounding of your heart." Remind you of some other Jersey rocker?
