The 9:13 Buzz with Sarah Wardrop

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:

Michael Kiwanuka, "The Final Frame" - After a four-year wait, Michael Kiwanuka's sophomore album Love and Hate continues the innately soulful sounds of his debut album, but with some remarkable growth. There's an added cinematic feel, thanks in part to the production work of Danger Mouse, and Kiwanuka also steps out in the roles of guitarist and bandleader, making this closing track sear and ache.

The Julie Ruin, "I'm Done" - Kathleen Hanna of Bikini Kill and Le Tigre fame is back with the second album by her latest band The Julie Ruin, called Hit Reset. This defining punk voice tears through yet another great pop song, mixing attitude, a defiant melancholy and plenty of bounce.
