Broncho

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 Pop City's Patrick Bowman

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

Broncho, "What" - Norman, Oklahoma proto-punks Broncho have homed in on garage rock aesthetic that melds together the work of bands like Television, The Pretenders, and The Buzzcocks. The first track off their sophomore album Just Enough Hip to be Woman swaggers with attitude, giving the impression that Broncho were a long lost act from the Lower East Side punk scene of late 70s New York.

Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, "Billions of Eyes" - "Billions of Eyes" is the first single from After, the sophomore release from Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, aka Brunswick, Maine, singer songwriter Aly Spaltro. Along with acts like Angel Olsen, Sharon Van Etten, and Waxahatchee, Spaltro has infused her folky songwriting with nods from classic 90s alternative rock. "Billions of Eyes" is rife with noodly guitar lines, poppy choruses, and the sort of disaffected, surreal lyrics that recall Frank Black's weirdness from the Pixies.

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 Andy Mulkerin of Pittsburgh's City Paper.

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

Broncho, "Insert Coin" - Broncho re-released their debut album, Can't Get Past the Lips, on Fairfax Recordings a couple months ago, so while this isn't technically new, it's new to a lot of us who missed it when they self-released it in 2011. This track is kind of post-punk sounding, but most of the album is driving, witty garage-punk. Highly recommended.

Laura Veirs, "America" - Laura Veirs is a musician's songwriter; she puts together solid songwriting and great orchestration to make some wonderful tunes. Her new album, Warp and Weft, is great, and she's playing Club Cafe Sun., Sept. 22.
