Pick Your Poison: Wednesday 7-11-12
Trent Reznor is a very busy man. Then again, he almost always has been. Since the “end” of Nine Inch Nails a few years ago, he’s worked with Atticus Ross on the scores to two David Fincher films, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and the Oscar-winning The Social Network. He’s also started a new band with his wife, known as How to Destroy Angels. They’ve only put out one EP so far, but have recorded a full length that will be out hopefully by the end of this year. As Reznor recently said in an interview, they’re planning to release the record in an unconventional way, so that’s taking some extra time to set up. He’s also recently composed the theme song for Call of Duty: Black Ops II, which will be out this November. And though he probably won’t ever tour again, he also says he’s working on new NIN material. If you’re overwhelmed about your job, imagine how he feels. Okay, let’s talk today’s Pick Your Poison. Notable tracks in this set come from The Black Cadillacs, Cody ChesnuTT, Gabe Goodman, The Hawthorne Effect, and The Raveonettes. In the Soundcloud section, stream new stuff from Azealia Banks, Dan Deacon, Melody’s Echo Chamber, and The Walkmen doing a Rolling Stones cover.
