Pick Your Poison: Monday 5-28-12
Happy Memorial Day! I want to take a moment to thank all the men and women who fight so hard and sacrifice so much for America. It’s also important on a day like today to remember the fallen – those that gave their lives to protect citizens and certain ideals. So thanks again to all who serve, have served and will serve in the future. The world is a safer, better place because of your efforts. I hope that there are some military personnel that visit this site to discover new music, and that those discoveries help make life better or more meaningful when times get tough. Please enjoy today’s Pick Your Poison selections. Stuff you might want to check out today comes from Catcall, The Mommyheads, Permanent Collection, Pujol, Tidelands and Yeasayer. In the Soundcloud section, you definitely don’t want to miss streaming tracks from Beat Connection and Cloud Seeding. I also want to give a very warm shout out to Psychic Twin, the new project from Erin Wraight of the excellent indie pop band Headlights. They’ll have a 7′ single coming out on Lefse Records towards the end of July that you can preorder here. Stream the A side of that release below – it’s quite good and divinely retro.
