Happy Friday! Or as many might refer to it, happy start to a 3-day weekend! Yes, Memorial Day is Monday, and that means everyone takes the day off to sit outside in the sun, grill and drink plenty of alcohol. It’s a rite of passage, really. I’ve got a jam-packed weekend ahead of me, filled with more things than I know what to do with. But I hope you’ve got some time on your hands to jump on Netflix this Sunday for the premiere of the new set of Arrested Development episodes. Yes, all 15 episodes will premiere at once, and you can catch them all on Netflix in whatever order you’d like. Or jump between them too. Like the three seasons that aired years ago, this new collection of episodes has more threads and callbacks going through it that make it so brilliant and rewatchable. So many people have become fans of the show since it went off the air, though I’m proud to say I was there from the very beginning and watched most of the episodes live. Had all the people who are now fans of the show done the same, perhaps it wouldn’t have been cancelled. Still, I’m just glad there’s enough people to justify them making more, even if it was tough to wrangle the cast together and some of the scenes had to be shot on green screen and edited together later. Will it be as good as we all remember? There’s only one way to find out. Now before you check out for the long weekend, let me toss some Pick Your Poison tracks your way to maybe spice up your BBQ. Enjoy tracks from AM & Shawn Lee, Angel Haze and Iggy Azalea (covering Jay-Z and Kanye West), Beach Day, The Guru, Melvins, Mile Me Deaf, Mister Lies and Young Readers. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream a bunch of great new cuts from Andrew Cedermark, Boards of Canada, Disclosure, Quadron (ft. Kendrick Lamar) and The Field’s remix of Sally Shapiro. Have a great weekend, and we’ll be back on Tuesday!
