The 9:13 Buzz with Jess Phaneuf

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 Jess Phaneuf from WUMB in Boston!

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

Dawes, "For No Good Reason" - These guys are finally stepping beyond their Jackson Browne-like sound and I'm digging it! At first I was a little surprised at the experimental nature of the new album but the more I listen, the more I love it, especially this George Harrison-esque song, "For No Good Reason"...oh and as always, it's complete with incredibly beautiful and thoughtful lyrics.

Allah Las, "Satisfied" - This LA-based band has caught my attention with their throwback, laid back vibe. Listening to the album is like kicking back with an ice cold drink on a sunny day. Makes sense I'm diggin' the sound since I'm hanging on to the last warm days we'll have for a while!
