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:

Alex Lahey, "Wes Anderson" - Out of Melbourne, Australia, Alex Lahey just started her first U.S. tour, including SXSW this week, and it follows the U.S. release of her debut EP B-Grade University. While I doubt it's because she's from Melbourne that her songwriting reminds me of Courtney Barnett's, there is a similar way with words and a gift for setting scenes. Lahey studied saxophone and played in concert bands in her past and I think that experience brings an ear for arrangements, which propel this song forward.

Tennis, "My Emotions Are Blinding" - The married duo of Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley made their debut album as Tennis on a sailing trip, and they returned to ocean living for album number four, Yours Conditionally, which just came out last Friday. The setting adds a breezy, fluid and vintage pop sound to this song in particular, but there's also an interesting combination of feeling relaxed and isolated at the same time.

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 Patrick Bowman!

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

Sinkane, "Passenger"Ahmed Gallab aka Sinkane just dropped his new fun as hell album Life & Livin It on February 10th, and it's just an excellent melting pot of influences and international sounds that never stops being the soundtrack to a party. Gallab was born in London, raised in Sudan, before his family took up political refuge in Provo, Utah. Over his career, he's played with Caribou and Yeasayer, and toured/ performed the music of Nigerian synth funk cult legend William Onyeabor. He's comfortable mixing and matching Krautrock with Dub and Afrobeat, and the song "Passenger"  from Life and Livin It is a perfect example of this. You can't quite put your finger on where the song is gonna go, and if you want, you could do a deep dive dissecting up the different lineages of the beats/guitars/ harmonies, or you could just bump it. He actually played Club Cafe last week. 

 Syd, "All About Me"  - Syd, is 24-year-old Sydney Bennett, the charismatic songwriter and performer at the center of R&B group the Internet, and also an affilliate/producer of the Odd Future Crew. She just dropped her major label debut curiously titled Fin a few weeks ago and it hits this awesome sweetspot between the best boundary pushing contemporary hip-hop, and a trip-hop warp records vibe that makes me feel like she'd be right at home touring along side Tricky in the 90s. "All About Me" is my favorite moment on the album, and its slinky, and smouldering and shows off Syd as resolutely confident in her vision and sound, really growing in to her own.

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:

Aimee Mann "Goose Snow Cone" - I'm always pretty excited to hear what Aimee Mann has put together and it's been a little while since her last project, so I'm really looking forward to this album. So far, I'm digging the lovely sounds of this single, although I can't for the life of me figure out what a goose snow cone is!

Bell X1, "I Go Where You Go" - I've enjoyed bits of Bell X1 in the past, but this is the first full album from them that I've fallen in love with. I like to describe it as Bon Iver meets Dawes. This particular track is quite sweet and romantic.
