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 Jess Phaneuffrom MVY Radio on Martha's Vineyard!
In case you missed, it here’s what she played:
Punch Brothers, “My Oh My” - It seems like everything mandolin virtuoso Chris Thile touches turns to gold. When the long awaited Nickel Creek reunion happened last year, I didn’t think it could get any better, but this year’s new Punch Brothers album is dynamite! I can’t stop listening to this track in particular, which has such incredible dynamics…it goes from hootin’ and hollerin’ to a beautiful whisper and back in just a few minutes. Marry me, Chris?
Chadwick Stokes, “Mother Maple” - Dispatch and State Radio frontman Chad Stokes has really turned his focus to his solo career in recent years, and the material I’ve heard has left me feeling luke warm…until now. I’m digging this experimental single from Stokes’ new album, The Horse Comanche. Add a sing-along chorus in with thoughtful lyrics and some video game sounds and you’ve won me over.
