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:
Divine Fits, "My Love Is Real" - This is the first track on the indie supergroup's debut album; Divine Fits is made up of Britt Daniel from Spoon, Dan Boeckner from Handsome Furs/Wolf Parade, and Sam Brown, the drummer from New Bomb Turks. This is one of the most-toured records of this fall; expect to hear plenty from these guys in the future.
Guards, "Silver Lining" - Guards came to Pittsburgh last year with that buzz-band Cults; it made sense, because the guy from Guards is the brother of the woman from Cults. Anyway: They're a pretty good band. Upbeat, fuzzy pop the like of which I often play during these segments. Enjoy!
