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!
Zvuloon Dub System, "Tenesh Kelbe Lay" - It's prime time we heard some good vibes coming from the Middle East. This Ethiopian-Israeli band has made its name in Tel Aviv for laying down heavy, horn-laden grooves and great melodies largely sung in Amharic. The band's latest album, "Anbessa Dub," dropped this summer, followed by their first ever tour in the US.
Caribou "Can't Live Without You" - Speaking of heavy grooves, Caribou's latest single, off the upcoming album "Our Love," is a slice of dark, minimalist dance music that gets you moving with very few moving parts. A rumbling bass here, a sampled vocal there, some live percussion and a few synthesizers and you've got this great, catchy bit of pop.
