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!
In case you missed it here’s what he played with commentary by Justin!
Manchester Orchestra, "Cope"- Boy, oh boy, is this song loud. Right now, press play and turn up your car stereo or your shitty computer speakers. This Atlanta band has been messing around with some 'alternative rock' sounds for a few albums now, but on their fourth record, they come up with something that sounds like a sonic upgrade of 1994.
Tune-Yards, "Water Fountain"-Merrill Garbus' new album, Nikki Nack, squeezed its way into my head last month, and I don't think it'll leave until Christmas. The music is out-there weird but totally funky and undeniably fun. This is her first single off the album. Enjoy!
