Chef Bill Fuller Jeff Buckley Pairings The Morning Mix The Pixies

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 Mervis!

In case you missed it here's what he played with commentary by Scott.

Pixies, "Another Toe in the Ocean" - At first (and maybe second) glance, this sounds like Bad Religion. But it's actually a song from the first Pixies album in 23 years! Although "Indie Cindy" has been getting slagged by some critics, I like it, even if it's not the Pixies in groundbreaking mode. This is a fun summery song with typically surreal lyrics and a chorus that sticks in your head.

Ingrid Michaelson, "You Got Me" - Not a big Ingrid Michaelson fan, per se, but the new album, "Lights Out,' has some good songs, like this duet with Storyman, who opens for her at Stage on May 25. Michaelson's sound has been expanded since she arrived as the quirky ukulele girl, so it might be time for pop radio to take another look.

Kim Shattuck
Iconic indie rock band The Pixies recently reunited and began touring again. Their original bassist, Kim Deal, however, quit the band about a month before their tour began. That didn't slow The Pixies down, though. They recruited former Muffs bassist Kim Shattuck to fill in on the low end and things were going pretty well.

Recently, we learned that Shattuck was abruptly fired from the band rather unexpectedly. Nobody really knew the reason as to why Shattuck was discharged from her duty, but now we do. In a recent interview with NME, Shattuck explained that the band asked her to leave for "being too enthusiastic". It all stems from a concert at The Aztec Theater in Los Angeles where Shattuck found herself so worked up with joy that she decided to launch herself from the stage into the crowd of adoring fans. Shattuck remarked to NME, "I know they weren't thrilled about that," she said. "When I got offstage, the manager told me not to do that again. I said, 'Really, for my own safety?' And he said, 'No, because the Pixies don't do that.'"

The Pixies have filled the void left by Shattuck's firing by bringing on A Perfect Circle bassist Paz Lenchantin.

The Pixies will stop in Pittsburgh on January 25th. We'll just have to wait and see who's going to be in the rhythm section by then!
