The 9:13 Buzz with Justin Jacobs
In case you missed it, here is what he played with commentary by Justin:
Bastille - "Pompeii" - How is this song not a gigantic hit in the US? It's a mystery, because this track by British act Bastille is about the catchiest thing I've heard since my dad introduced me to "Thriller" when I was five. The band is blowing up in England right now (and on YouTube, with 25 million views), but pretty unknown in the States. You can say you heard this track first on WYEP.
Houndmouth - "Houston Train" - Here's a band that isn't breaking any astounding new ground, but what they do, they do well: country-leaning rock and roll. The band just released their debut album, "From the Hills Below the City," and it's full of great rootsy rock begging to be played at your next barbecue.
