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 MVY Radio on Martha's Vineyard!

In case you missed, it here’s what she played:

The Hunts, "Make This Leap" - The Hunts are SEVEN young siblings from Virginia. Lovely harmonies over stringed instruments with a tambo beat all make this song a delightful tune for the summertime.

My Morning Jacket, "Get The Point" - This song is a little hidden gem on the new My Morning Jacket album, Waterfall. Here Jim James is finger-pickin' and lamenting a relationship gone wrong. I love these relatable lyrics so much. It's a really nice take on the break up song.

Fans of My Morning Jacket have a a lot to be excited for in the future despite a relatively quiet year for the band. In a recent interview front man Jim James has revealed that they are currently working on a new studio album. "We are going to some cool new places and just enjoying playing music together as a band" said James when pressed for details on the album. The new album has a tentative fall release date.

Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell have begun working on a new duet album together following the success and chemistry the two artists experienced with 2013's Old Yellow Moon. "We bring out a lot of good stuff in each other" said Crowell, "we just understood that and have to have more time to explore that". No release date has been slated for the new album.

Despite speculation, legendary musician Joni Mitchell has stated that Taylor Swift will never portray her on film. An adaptation for the book "Girls Like Us" has been in the works for years and many have speculated that Swift would be a perfect fit for Mitchell, "all you've got is a girl with high cheek bones" Mitchell has stated she told the films producer, "you don't have great scenes"

Jim James, frontman for legendary Kentucky rock band My Morning Jacket, has recently made statements regarding their next studio album. There is no release date just yet, but James recently declared at a show, "With My Morning Jacket, we don't put limits on anything."

MMJ's last album Circuital came out in May of 2011, and received many favorable reviews. Don't expect the same sort of material as Circuital though, since James himself has no idea what the album should sound like. Lately, James has become exceptionally interested in saxophone and the recordings of Duke Ellington, and there's always more room for brass in rock n roll. This sax obsession started while recording his solo album Regions of Light and Sound of God.

"I loved being in the studio, building scores, building soundscapes," James said. He also mentioned that producer Joe Chiccarelli told him not to record demos anymore. James argues that this means anything they record has the potential to make it to the next album.

Every Wednesday at 9:13 am, one of Pittsburgh's finest music writers joins me (Cindy Howes) on the Morning Mix to play a couple favorite new songs and share some insight. Today we welcome Scott Tady of The Beaver County Times.

In case you missed it here's what he played (with commentary by Scott):

Ben Shannon, "Break on Through" - This Nashville-born, Pittsburgh-based artist launches his debut album with a catchy Jason Mraz-meets-Citizen Cope-ish slice of plain-spoken pop. The lyrics are aimed at the commitment-phobe in us all: "You saw her in a coffee shop/sippin' on a double shot/Typin' something slow on a silver laptop/She was looking real hot/Wanna give her what you got/You think once, you think twice/and you think 'I think not.'"

My Morning Jacket, "Outta My System" - The indie-rock, somewhat psychedelic jam band's last three album's made my year-end Top-10s. The jury is still out on their latest, "Circuital," which began streaming for free more than a week ago. This song is the one that caught my ear the most during my first few listens. The lyrics are profound but simple; the overall production is, dare we say, cute. I'm going to trust Wikipedia, which reports "Outta My System" was written for -- but rejected by -- the upcoming Muppets movie. Must have been the drug reference.

Every Wednesday at 9:13 am, one of Pittsburgh's finest music writers joins me (Cindy Howes) on the Morning Mix to play a couple favorite new songs and share some insight. Today we welcome Justin Jacobs, contributing writer to Billboard Magazine, City Paper and Relix Magazine

In case you missed it here's what he played (plus bonus songs):

Dawes, "If I Wanted Someone" - This California band is a perfect mix of CSNY, Jackson Browne, The Band and assorted other totally awesome classic rock acts, and they do it without any irony or nostalgia — just great songwriting, amazing lyrics, perfect harmonies and killer guitar solos. I totally hate this band, if you couldn't tell.

The Antlers, "Every Night My Teeth Are Falling Out" - Pretty much the opposite of sunshiney Dawes — The Antlers just released "Burst Apart," the spooky, minimalist and ice cold follow up to their epic, much beloved "Hospice." The band is great at creating a mood; frankly, I hope they remain about as popular as they are now. It's hard to imagine a sell-out crowd at Smalls getting down to this. Best appreciated with headphones, or when lost in the woods.

Bon Iver, entire album "Bon Iver" - It's really a beautiful record, and completely different than the now-classic "For Emma, Forever Ago." Also, it leaked a month early, so you can likely find it online pretty easily... not that I'm suggesting you do.

My Morning Jacket, entire album "Circuital" - This one drops May 31. It's weird and awesome, and you should totally buy it. The title track alone makes my brain turn into a July 4th sparkler.
