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!

Quilt, "Eliot St." - This Boston band has been bubbling under the surface of the psychedelic folk scene for a few albums now, but their upcoming "Plaza," out in February, aims to change that. The band is among peers with Real Estate and Woods, but they add a refined sound to their catchy, weird little jams that set them apart. Think psychedelic rock via The Beatles' White Album rather than The Grateful Dead.

Israel Nash, "LA Lately" - This is the latest single from current Texas resident Israel Nash — he recorded his new album, Silver Season, in the studio he built himself on his 15-acre ranch. As such, his folk rock feels wide open, his songs full of space. Nash is most often compared to a modern day Neil Young, and the similarities are hard to ignore. Just take a listen to the guy's gentle falsetto on this beautiful track. Guaranteed to put you in a great mood, and want to take a long, long drive.

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:

Santigold, "Can't Get Enough of Myself" - This new song from Santigold premiered a couple of weeks ago, and her album 99¢ will be out until January. As the title indicates, there is a humorous confidence in the lyrics, but they include some social commentary too. Sonically, Santigold has incorporated anything from indie-rock to electronica on her past two albums, so I'm curious to hear the range of the new songs. This one is dance pop with a reggae tinge, bringing a light, fun and summery feel for the fall.

Dylan LeBlanc, "Cautionary Tale" - Dylan LeBlanc returns to his Muscle Shoals roots for album number three, teaming up with Single Lock Records (including John Paul White, formerly of The Civil Wars, and Ben Tanner, of Alabama Shakes). They let his songs shine, but hauntingly so. This song is the title track of LeBlanc's January release, and although it has a stripped-down, ghost town feel, the layers it does have are tastefully added and beautifully arranged.

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:

Jimmy & the Revolvers, "The Morning Paper" - Four lads from Liverpool provide catchy pub rock with horns on this scrappy, not-too-serious song about questioning one's decisions.

Official Burnt Toast, "Money as Debt"- Socially conscious U.K. trip-hop trio with some spoken-word poetry, lashing out here against a banking/financial system too willing to let people fall into debt.

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 Patrick Bowman

In case you missed, it here's what Patrick played:

Grimes, "Flesh Without Blood" - Canadian Art popper Grimes (Claire Boucher) made a ton of end of year lists back in 2012 with her debut full length album Visions, including mine, and now she's back with the impending release of Art Angels, out this Friday.

Dusk, "Too Sweet" - DUSK, a new side project from Tenement frontman Amos Pitsch, just released the Steely Dan esque “Too Sweet” — the B-side on the Wisconsin band’s upcoming debut single — and Pitsch lets Julia Blair take over on vocal duties to imbue the track with a robust bit of soul, tinged with country twang.
