Happy Chinese New Year to all my readers in the Far East. Does anybody in China read this site? I’m halfway assuming it’s banned over there, or there’s just a whole lot of language barriers. Of course maybe all that “spam” I’m getting in my inbox and on occasional site comments are actually from Chinese readers. Apologies if that’s the case. But we’re now in the Year of the Rabbit, so best of luck to all those on the same animal cycle. Highlights of today’s Pick Your Poison include tracks from Heidi Spencer & the Rare Birds, Six Organs of Admittance and Yellowbirds. Yeasayer remixing a new Cold War Kids song should be on your radar too, along with DISCOFORGIA’s remix of a Sleigh Bells track. The only Soundcloud track for you today is a new one from The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, and that’s simply delightful and a must hear.
