Pick Your Poison: Monday 10-2-17

What a tragic day, and a tragic way to start the month of October. It was heartbreaking to wake up this morning to the news coming out of Las Vegas, with the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history taking place at a music festival on Sunday night. At least 59 people have lost their lives so far, and hundreds more have been injured. As if that wasn’t depressing enough, we also lost music legend Tom Petty today. He was found in total cardiac failure, and after being taken to the hospital, wound up passing away. He was 66. There’s so much to say about both of these things, and while I could realistically write long essays about them, they’d probably only reiterate what so many others are already saying or have already said. We need more common sense gun control. Petty inspired generations of musicians and he will be missed. Right now I’m a little too sad and heartbroken to really dive any deeper than that. Do your best to take action by contacting lawmakers, volunteering, and contributing money or blood to Las Vegas victims. Listen to some Petty while formulating those plans. When you’re ready, maybe give some of the songs below a shot too. Allow me to recommend downloads in this set from Alex Bent + the Emptiness, Etches, George Ryan and Static In Verona. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream songs from BORNS, BRIDGE, CYN, EDEN, Elohim, Heartstreets, Jesse Kivel, Kotek & Littlemore, Lil Sko, Lil Yachty & Young Thug, T-Pain (ft. Blac Youngsta), and Yaeji.

Chicago is getting an early fall heat wave, and in all honesty I couldn’t be happier about it. Well, outside of the whole climate change factor that’s probably behind it. But I’m not ready for pumpkin spice and Halloween just yet (we’re still over a month away), so an extra dose of summer will always be welcome. Let’s get into today’s Pick Your Poison, which has a bunch of hot tracks to hopefully match the weather. Notable downloads in this set come from The Lymbs, Shining Mirrors, Tony Range, and Warning Light. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream new stuff from Cults, Dark0, DJ Snake (ft.

Pick Your Poison: Tuesday 8-1-17

With Lollapalooza this week and a general slowdown in the music season happening at the end of summer, I’d like to announce a brief break for Pick Your Poison. When I say brief, I mean basically about a week or two at most. This will allow for more time and focus on events like Lollapalooza, plus a short break just to spend a little time recovering from a very busy summer concert season. But don’t worry! You won’t miss anything, I promise. Once things return to normal around mid-month, I’ll play catch-up and feature a bunch of tracks that might have slipped through the cracks during that break period. In the meantime, the songs below will have to tide you over. Thanks for understanding, and here’s hoping things pick back up as the fall begins to creep in.
