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 Pop City's Patrick Bowman

In case you missed, it here's what Patrick played:

Neon Indian, “Annie” - Austin-based Alan Polomo became one of the big names in the microgenre of Chillwave when he released his debut Psychic Chasms in 2009. He’s back a new single “Annie” and the rumor of a third full-length coming in the next year. “Annie” is like an evolved version of what Polomo made his name on: gone are the lo-fi trappings that made his dance music sound like a warped cassette tape stuck in an old Honda Civic, and replaced with pristine production that allows the gorgeously weird, island-inflected beats to pop in high definition.

Gwenno, “Chwyldro” - Welsh singer/songwriter Gwenno was most famously known for her work in the Pipettes, a British-60’s throwback girl group that made a little stir in the early aughts, but her solo work is much, much different. “Chwyldro,” the first track on her her full-length sophomore album Y Dydd Olaf, which is is going to be released in July, has Gwenno working in a ghostly meter and spacey production. The fact that she sings the song in her native Welsh only adds to the otherwordly quality.

Let me paint a picture for you: it's at Friday 7:10 a.m., you're sleeping in your tent, face buried in an air mattress. The sun is screaming at you to wake up or suffocate. You went to bed three hours ago while hardcore techno music throbbed in the distance. You consumed about ten beers the day before -- that's a low ballpark estimate -- and you're already sweating profusely. You smell the way you feel. Read More...
