Death Cab For Cutie Translanticism

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 Justin Jacobs, contributing writer to Billboard Magazine

In case you missed it here's what he played (plus bonus songs):

Tune-Yards, "You Yes You" - The lady behind this noise is Merril Garbus, and she is awesome. Her voice? A scratchy, passionate yelp that's more rhythmic than melodic. Her music? Heavy grooving, stripped down and incredibly catchy. Wait till you start yelping along at work.

Rubik, "Laws of Gravity" - These dudes are Finnish, and that's pretty much all I know about them. Well, aside from the fact that they make songs like a shiny, outerspace Peter Bjorn and John.

Cloud Nothings, "Should Have" - This is the most infectious slice of scrappy guitar pop I've heard all year. Like Wavves but with oh so much less hype. The band is really young, so there's tons of promise here.

Death Cab for Cutie, "Codes and Keys" - When I started listening to this new record, I thought it sucked. But in just two days, I've grown from thinking it sounded like a bad Death Cab for Cutie cover band to sounding like a good Death Cab for Cutie record! Who knows, at this rate, in days this may grow to be my favorite. I don't think so, but it's possible.
