It’s CMJ week in New York at the moment, which pretty much means that every record label and band promoter is out there at the moment catching shows and possibly listening to panels. What that means for Pick Your Poison is simply a more difficult time providing mp3s for you the next couple days. My inbox is about half as full as it usually is, and much of it is also CMJ-related, recommending artists to go see or reminders about certain showcases. The good news is that I keep a back-up supply of music just for such an occasion. Recommendations today are for The Brute Chorus, Filthybird, Jookabox, U.S. Royalty and Wow & Flutter. Girl group The Suzan also crafted a very interesting cover of a Kanye West song.
