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!
La Sera, "Losing to the Dark" - Boy, oh boy, Katy Goodman is better on her own. The former Vivian Girl just released a new album as La Sera, and it's full of catchy choruses, tight guitars and her light, rocking voice. Think of Best Coast but a little bit less about lovey-dovey stuff and you've got La Sera.
Modern Baseball, "Fine, Great" - This Philadelphia band makes tight, pop-punk for the jilted 90's generation that loved The Promise Ring and Pinkerton-era Weezer. This track is a wonderfully, self-effacing confessional blast of energy. Check out the band's whole second album, You're Gonna Miss It All, for more of these short gems, and relive your sexually awkward teens and early-20's all over again.
