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 Andy Mulkerin of Pittsburgh's City Paper.
In case you missed it here's what he played with commentary by Andy:
Tristen, "No One's Gonna Know" - This is the single that you got if you helped back this Nashville singer/songwriter's recent Kickstarter project. I've been a Tristen believer since her last one, Charlatans at the Garden Gate, came out and I saw her at Stage AE two years ago. Her new stuff is less country, more synth-y, but has the same core pop songwriting featured.
The Features,"This Disorder"
- Another Nashville act, because I'm a theme-oriented guy. This band has been starting to get some Buzz; thanks to the drunk Vanderbilt grad student I met at Gooski's a couple years ago who mentioned them as a Nashville band I should know. He was right!
Two bonuses: In this week's paper, I write about the new split LP from The Red Western and Grand Piano, two quality locals. Worth a try:
