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 Scott Tady!
In case you missed it here’s what he played with commentary by Scott:
Grizzly Bear, "Mourning Sound" - The second single from the eagerly awaited new release by the dependable Brooklyn indie-rock band. A thick bass line, harpsichord, synth drums and dual vocals from Ed Droste and Dan Rossen, are part of the entrancing, multi-textured sound. The lyrics are about love aging, burning out then dying. The opening verse: I made a mistake/I should have never tried/I took the cake/Thinning every slice/I moved away/Still playing off the fights... Alright, you won't be hearing this one at any summer weddings.
Kids on Bridges, "Just Because You Can" - A danceable track from a fresh Liverpool trio -- (The Fab Three?) -- that's opened shows for Beck and Calvin Harris. Their album comes out June 23, featuring bassist Jennie Vee from Eagles of Death Metal on a number of tracks. This is the single, which tips a hat to the Rolling Stones with a groove near the end that's straight out of "Undercover of The Night."
