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 Justin played (commentary by JJ):

Timber Timbre, "Sewer Blues" - The dudes in Timber Timbre are absolute masters at creating a mood. The band began by releasing ghostly folk music, then graduated to David Lynch-ian, sax-driven rock with their last record. Now, they've moved on to a more urban, gritty feel—their latest album, the upcoming "Sincerely, Future Pollution", has all the icy synths of a dark, 1980's horror movie. The first single, "Sewer Blues," is far and away the most rocking cut on the album. If you like the "Stranger Things" soundtrack, this album will be your new obsession. 

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, "Nuclear Fusion" - This young, Australian band has been blasting out totally psyched-out rock 'n' roll for the past few years, and their upcoming record, "Flying Microtonal Banana," is their finest hour yet. The guys explore 'microtonal playing' on this album, meaning the notes in between the notes we're used to hearing in pop music. The result is an impressively colorful, frantic album of blissed out weirdo rock. Let your freak flag fly high with the King.

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:

Alex Lahey, "Wes Anderson" - Out of Melbourne, Australia, Alex Lahey just started her first U.S. tour, including SXSW this week, and it follows the U.S. release of her debut EP B-Grade University. While I doubt it's because she's from Melbourne that her songwriting reminds me of Courtney Barnett's, there is a similar way with words and a gift for setting scenes. Lahey studied saxophone and played in concert bands in her past and I think that experience brings an ear for arrangements, which propel this song forward.

Tennis, "My Emotions Are Blinding" - The married duo of Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley made their debut album as Tennis on a sailing trip, and they returned to ocean living for album number four, Yours Conditionally, which just came out last Friday. The setting adds a breezy, fluid and vintage pop sound to this song in particular, but there's also an interesting combination of feeling relaxed and isolated at the same time.
