If you love the first half of the alphabet, the small surprise in today’s Pick Your Poison is that pretty much every single artist begins with a letter from that first half. Mere coincidence really, but it just so happens there’s also a number of great songs in this collection as well. If you like hip hop, Gary, Indiana native Freddie Gibbs has a new version of an old mixtape for your downloading pleasure. Also there’s a new one from Marnie Stern, who is just plain awesome. The remix of the Apache Beat song also comes pretty highly recommended.
