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:
Bowerbirds, "In the Yard" - This tune is from the North Carolina Americana group's latest, "The Clearing." I saw this band on tour with The Mountain Goats a few years back and they delivered live; their upcoming show at Mr. Small's is likely to be great.
Santigold, "Disparate Youth" - This is one of the few upbeat, "happy" tunes on Santi's new album, "Master of My Make-Believe." Excited to see her at Stage AE next weekend.
Pujol, "Providence" - Pujol is the Susan Lucci of the 9:13 Buzz; I think I've brought tunes by this band four times and Cindy has always had me play the other tracks I brought, and make Pujol my runner-up. Let the record show, though, that I think Daniel Pujol is one of our most talented young songwriters, and "United States of Being" is my summer 2012 album. [Editor's note- :P]
