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:

Jesca Hoop, "The Lost Sky" - I've always admired the weirdness of Jesca Hoop's music and then last year's collaboration with Sam Beam (Iron &Wine) made me into an uber fan. Now I'm loving this new song from her forthcoming album... it's so bold and has so much raw emotion. If you really want to dig in, check out the music video, which is REALLY trippy.

Laura Marling, "Soothing" - I'm always impressed by everything Laura Marling puts out there. I'm especially excited to hear her produced by Blake Mills on the forthcoming release Semper Femina. He seems to be the hot new producer to work with these days, having just wrapped projects with Dawes and Jim James. Oh and he happened to produce the new Jesca Hoop album too!
