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 Scott Tady of The Beaver County Times.
In case you missed it here's what he played (with commentary by Scott):
Nude Beach, "Some Kinda Love" - With a name like that, they had better be entertaining! Fortunately, these Brooklyn-Long Island punk-rockers are on their new album due out in August. While authentic to DIY punk, Nude Beach doesn't mask the Springsteen and Petty influences that sound-tracked their youth. This song hearkens to "Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out the Trash"-era Replacements.
Metric, "Youth Without Youth" - If Muse had a female singer, they might sound like this synth-hardened indie/alt-rock Canadian band. Singer Emily Haines is part of the Broken Social Scene music collective. She displays a gift for intriguing lyrics on the band's 2-week-old album, which also occasionally drifts in an Arcade Fire-ish direction.
