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:
Friends, "Friend Crush" - Still working out my feelings on Friends' debut album, but I think I might like it. At first I took it to be pretty shallow hipster pop stuff, but there's something charming about the sincerity of the songwriting. At the very worst, this is a great summer jam.
Crocodiles, "No Black Clouds for Dee Dee" - Another one for the driving-around-listening-to-summer-songs pile. Crocodiles' latest, Endless Flowers, is a trippy garage-pop tour de force. Gem after gem after gem! Just don't take the sticker off the cover.
