This past weekend in Chicago was a terrible one weather-wise. Rainy and cold virtually the entire time, made that much worse knowing just a few days earlier it was 90 degrees and sunny. The taste of summer was far too fleeting, and now instead we were handed a dose of late fall. But with a new week starts a new weather cycle, one that sees much more sunshine and temperatures steadily rising towards the normal high of 70 degrees this time of year. Damn, I’ve got to stop writing about the weather. Besides, there are people dealing with far worse right now. Let’s make everything feel just a little bit better with today’s Pick Your Poison. Recommendations today? How about tracks from Brad Laner, Darwin Deez, The Great Book of John, Minden, Nik Freitas and Tape Deck Mountain. You’ll certainly want to download Cut Copy’s remix of The Miracles Club, along with Andreas Lust’s (of Frightened Rabbit) reworking of OSLO, while Jim Jones with special guests Lloyd and Girl Talk is great too. There’s also a couple interesting covers in the Soundcloud section that are both worth checking out.
