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):

Father John Misty, "Pure Comedy" - American needs Father John Misty right now. The weirdo folk star is prepping to release his third album in April, and in the meantime he's been dropping some golden nuggets of knowledge that we all should hear. "Pure Comedy" is best experienced along with the video linked below—it's an Elton John-esque explanation of how we, as a human race, have royally f****d ourselves over and let the dumbest among us take the lead. 

Southern Avenue, "Don't Give Up" - While that first track is a bit of a sobering downer, the new music coming from Mephis' Southern Avenue will lift you right back up. Led by Israeli guitarist Ori Naftaly, Southern Avenue was recently signed to Stax and sounds like it — this is pure, Memphis soul music to play at your next barbecue, house party, or even bus ride. Basically, if you need to feel lifted, this is your jam.
