Every Wednesday at 9:13 am, one of WYEP’s trusted music experts joins me (Cindy Howes) on The Morning Mix to play a couple favorite new songs and share some insight. Today we welcome Jess Phaneuffrom MVY Radio on Martha's Vineyard!
In case you missed, it here’s what she played:
Dawes, "Things Happen" - "Things happen...that's all they ever do." I can't get enough of this honest tune from the new Dawes album. These lyrics really hit me and somehow make me feel like everything is gonna be OK. I'm really excited to hear the entire new album - "All Your Favorite Bands" comes out June 2nd.
Ryan Montbleau Band, "Pacing Like Prince" - Before they went their separate ways, the Ryan Montbleau Band recorded one last album. After a decade of touring the country together, this release certainly marks the end of an era for the band. You'll hear a lot of emotion within the tracks on "Growing Light" (officially out 4/21), but there's a whole lotta funkiness in this particular song.
