Pick Your Poison: Monday 10-8-12
Happy Columbus Day to you and yours. I hope you got the day off work to celebrate. If not, just know that Christopher Columbus wasn’t exactly the greatest of people. He basically discovered America by accident, then proceeded to drive out the Native Americans that already lived there. If such a thing were to happen today, the media would relentlessly criticize such a move. Instead we call the man enough of a hero to get a holiday named after him. If he wouldn’t have gotten lost on his way to India, somebody else would have discovered North America, and from there who knows what direction the country might have taken. I’m happy about the freedoms I have today, and hope that in spite of his shady deeds it was the right move for the country. Okay, let’s do some Monday edition of Pick Your Poison. Don’t miss some good tracks today from Jenee Halstead, King of Spain, Letting Up Despite Great Faults, Peculiar Pretzelmen, Qurious, and Village. Remixes from DISCOFORGIA and Justin K. Broadrick also make for some excellent work. In the Soundcloud section, stream good stuff from Girls Names, Martin Eden (aka Eluvium) and SURES.
