Jess Phaneuf

 
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:

Chris Stapleton, "Either Way" - My goodness this song is so gut-wrenching! Every time I listen, I'm stopped in my tracks by Stapleton's vocal performance...and I'm so moved by the lyrics. Even though I've never found myself in this particular situation, the story is told so powerfully that I can actually FEEL how heart-breaking it would be. That's a sure sign of a talented song-writer!

The Secret Sisters "He's Fine" - Laura and Lydia Rogers have that wonderful sibling chemistry and I'm thankful that they're back with a new album - You Don't Own Me Anymore. Brandi Carlile produced the record and I think it's some of their best work yet! This particular song is catchy and fun... even though it's also about heartache!

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

Dolly Parton, "The Story" - Brandi Carlile is celebrating 10 years of her album The Story and has an all star cast of musicians to cover each track on Cover Stories. Not only does this album of unique covers captivate, but it's also for a great cause - proceeds benefit War Child UK.

Dan Auerbach, "Shine On Me" - One half of The Black Keys, Auerbach has really established himself as a solo artist at this point and his new album sounds quite solid with Mark Knopfler assisting on this particular track.

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

Rufus Wainwright, "Signed Sealed Delivered I'm Yours" - Sometimes hearing a unique cover of a familiar song will breathe a whole new life into it. I love the way Rufus Wainwright makes this tune completely his own. This was a single he did to contribute to a Stevie Wonder tribute earlier this year.

Ron Sexsmith, "Radio" - Here's an artist who I think is often overlooked ...he's a very talented songwriter and quite frequently he creates such contagiously fun music. Like this song for example! Off his new record - The Last Rider.

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

John Craigie, "Virgin Guitar" - This LA-based singer-songwriter has been hailed as a modern day troubadour and I'm just now catching on. His voice and overall sound really impress me, so much so that he's become my favorite new music discovery in quite some time.

Timothy Seth Avett as Darling, "Samuel and the Baler" - We've received what's apparently the 4th album from this Avett Brothers side project, which sounds just a little more low key to me than the band's material. I'm most impressed by this instrumental, which showcases Seth Avett's guitar playing and keeps me toe tapping along.

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.

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

Jesca Hoop, "The Lost Sky" - I've always admired the weirdness of Jesca Hoop's music and then last year's collaboration with Sam Beam (Iron &Wine) made me into an uber fan. Now I'm loving this new song from her forthcoming album... it's so bold and has so much raw emotion. If you really want to dig in, check out the music video, which is REALLY trippy.

Laura Marling, "Soothing" - I'm always impressed by everything Laura Marling puts out there. I'm especially excited to hear her produced by Blake Mills on the forthcoming release Semper Femina. He seems to be the hot new producer to work with these days, having just wrapped projects with Dawes and Jim James. Oh and he happened to produce the new Jesca Hoop album too!

We asked Jess to bring in her favorites from 2016. In case you missed it, here's what Jess played:

2016 was a year FULL of amazing music but some releases really rose to the top for me. Ages and Ages from Portland, Oregon take my top spot for favorite album of the year with Something To Ruin...11 tracks which move through life's ups and downs with lyrics that cut to the core, sung in catchy harmonies and with an adventurous musical spirit, complete with plenty of tambourine. Yup, tambourine.

Esme Patterson really nailed it with her song "No River", which I will always hold onto as a mantra for myself. "I can't keep running, I'm no river...I know that I'm alive today, but I'm human, I'm human".

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

Jonny Fritz, "Are You Thirsty" - Thankfully he's ditched the moniker Jonny Corndog and Jonny Fritz has also enlisted the help of Jim James and members of Dawes for his new album Sweet Creep. His sound is killer and his lyrics are clever...I'm really digging this song in particular. For fans of Devendra Banhart, Father John Misty or Edward Sharpe.

Hiss Golden Messenger "As The Crow Flies" - MC Taylor has admittedly injected a lot of personal struggle in his new album Heart Like A Levee and it shows. These songs breath with life and have made for a wonderful soundtrack as the seasons change. I particularly love this track, which reminds me of Robert Plant.

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

Dawes, "For No Good Reason" - These guys are finally stepping beyond their Jackson Browne-like sound and I'm digging it! At first I was a little surprised at the experimental nature of the new album but the more I listen, the more I love it, especially this George Harrison-esque song, "For No Good Reason"...oh and as always, it's complete with incredibly beautiful and thoughtful lyrics.

Allah Las, "Satisfied" - This LA-based band has caught my attention with their throwback, laid back vibe. Listening to the album is like kicking back with an ice cold drink on a sunny day. Makes sense I'm diggin' the sound since I'm hanging on to the last warm days we'll have for a while!
