Things are picking up. People are waking up from their post-holiday hangovers and the inbox has begun to bear a more normal load. So today’s Pick Your Poison looks pretty promising. I can recommend tracks from Ben + Vesper, The Sound of Growing Up, Swimclub, and Tape Deck Mountain. You should also take particular note of the band Middle Brother, which is comprised of members from Dawes, Deer Tick and Delta Spirit. Sex Beet’s cover of Sonic Youth’s “Dirty Boots” isn’t half bad either, and that’s something you might want to try out.
