It may be Wednesday, but the way you view it really helps determine whether you’re an optimist or a pessimist. The week is either half full or half empty, only just started or almost done. I’d like to encourage you to look on the brighter side, as there’s only a couple days left before those couple days we all long for, the weekend. Pick Your Poison highlights today include songs from DATAROCK, Earth Girl Helen Brown (which is a side project of Sonny Smith of Sonny & the Sunsets), Hunx and His Punx, Quiet Lights, and U.S. Royalty. Bart Davenport’s cover of the Kings of Convenience’s “Cayman Islands” is solid too. Jimmy Edgar remixes Tahiti 80’s “Darlin'” to good effect as well.
