The 9:13 Buzz with Justin Jacobs
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):
Alex G, "Proud" - We all know Pittsburgh's got some incredible music, but boy-o is Philly killing it! Alex G is a former Temple University student who's been quietly releasing beautifully noisy lo-fi indie rock for the past few years. But after he released Beach Music last year, then got drafted to work on Frank Ocean's Blonde, his profile rose quickly. This new tune is from his upcoming album Rocket, a gorgeous collection of country-folk he recorded, amazingly, on his laptop.
Eric Slick, "You Are Not Your Mind" - Philly strikes again! This song is the new single from the drummer of Dr. Dog, one of that city's finest rock bands. It's a decidedly dreamy tune from his debut solo album Palisades. The record isn't as quirky and clever as Dr. Dog, but Slick's solo music is almost meditative in it's melodic simplicity. If you're a true Pennsylvanian, you're going to love it.
