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

In case you missed it here's what he played with commentary from Andy.

Hiss Golden Messenger, "Lucia" - This is the lead track from the North Carolina band's new album, Lateness of Dancers. Dylan-inspired for sure, but maybe best described as The War on Drugs with fewer electric guitars and more mandolin.

Jill Barber, "Broken for Good" - Catchy tune from the Canadian songstress's latest, Fool's Gold. Nothing crazy here, just a pretty, classic-sounding song, done well.

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:

Jaill, "Waste a Lot of Things" - I was way into this band's Sub Pop debut in 2010, and buzzed a tune from that record; next month, they return with a follow-up, Traps. They've got a slacker-rock, sometimes almost surfer-y vibe, except they're from Milwaukee, so they're probably not surfers, right?

Jill Barber, "Tell Me" - I saw this Vancouverian songstress at Hard Rock Cafe, making her Pittsburgh debut, a couple of weeks ago. Not many folks can pull off the retro-jazz-standards-revival thing, but she's a great songwriter and a charming performer, and has a wonderful voice. Here's hoping she makes her way back soon.
