Normally on Thursdays I have This Week in Music, a segment which has me pointing you in the direction of all sorts of fun and interesting music-related things on the Internet that popped up over the last 7 days. Well, given that we’re on the eve of yet another Chicago music festival, I’ve decided to forego that segment for this week to get myself prepared for the tidal wave that is Lollapalooza. I hope you’ll be going this year too, as it sold out almost immediately from music hungry fans. Speaking of which, if you’re not sure who to see this weekend at Lolla, make sure you check out my preview guide for an hour-by-hour dissection of the best bands performing on each of the three days of the festival. It’s gonna be a blast! If you’re not going or are maybe just going to watch the YouTube stream, perhaps a Thursday edition of Pick Your Poison can satisfy some cravings for some new and great music. Highlights today come from Angel Haze (covering Kanye West), Bad Sports, Hunters, La Luz, Pop. 1280 and Spook Houses. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream songs from Deap Vally (at Lolla this weekend), Factory Floor, Jensen Sportag, and Summer Cannibals.
