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, contributing writer to Billboard Magazine
In case you missed it here’s what he played:
Cloud Nothings, “Should Have” – I already listed this last month as one of my extra picks, but hell, I just couldn’t get away from it. Few things are better than a three minute sugar rush of some catchy, electric power pop, and this song takes the cake this summer.
White Denim, “Street Joy” – An ethereal cloud of dreamy acoustic folk, this song is alone stylistically on White Denim’s album “D.” That’s a shame, too — the rest of the album is full of assorted rock genres, but none touch on the gorgeous ache of this brooder.
