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!
Paolo Nutini, "Let Me Down Easy" - This Scottish soulful rock dude just released his first album in five years, and it is excellent. The album's called Caustic Love, and this single is called "Let Me Down Easy." The obvious draw here is Nutini's voice - emotive, raw and loud. He's a huge deal in Europe. Let's hope he gets his due in the US of A.
Cymbals Eat Guitars, "Warning" - These guys showed up to the indie rock scene in 2009 when their debut got tons of labeled as 'Inspiring 90's Throwback!' which was a shame, because it was great on its own merit. The band is back with LOSE, out this month. This single is a loud, brash guitar blast, seemingly saying "Shut up about the 'nostalgic' crap."
