Every Wednesday at 9:13 am, one of our most trusted music aficionados 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!

Albert Hammond Jr., “Born Slippy” - Oh lord, why can’t The Strokes be this much fun anymore? This is the lead track on (Strokes guitarist) Albert Hammond Jr.’s latest solo album, Momentary Masters, and it’s four minutes of pinging guitars, catchy melodies and danceable drums. With Strokes singer Julian Casablancas also releasing quality solo material, maybe this is a sign that the whole is no longer better than the sum of the parts? Either way, you’ll love “Born Slippy.”

Deradoorian, “A Beautiful Woman” - Angel Deradoorian has played in the Dirty Projectors and with members of Animal Collective. But on her solo album, The Expanding Flower Planet, she’s her own woman. This track is a gorgeous, psychedelic, vaguely Middle Eastern-sounding jam packed with weird effects and layered vocals.

The 9:13 Buzz with Sarah Wardrop

August 19th, 2015 by Cindy H

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 Sarah Wardrop from WFUV in New York!

In case you missed, it here’s what she played:

John Grant, “Disappointing” - This American songwriter based in Iceland is set to release Grey Tickles, Black Pressure in October. It’s a follow-up to his 2013 album Pale Green Ghosts, which showcased Grant’s artful eccentricity and dark humor cabaret. Those songs also explored beats, and he takes that sound even further on this new song, which features vocals by Tracey Thorn of Everything But The Girl.

Nathaniel Rateliff, “I Need Never Get Old” - I first heard Rateliff in 2012 with his song “Whimper and Wail,” and there was a ragged edge to his voice but the delivery was slightly halted. Now he’s not holding anything back, belting and preaching soul songs with roots, joined by his band The Night Sweats. This track opens the self-titled album, which very appropriately has a home on the Stax label.
