It’s funny to me that the one day of the year with the most sunlight is overcast and rainy in Chicago. Come to think of it, that sounds remarkably accurate in terms of describing the oddities of Chicago weather. Okay, enough about that, let’s get right into Pick Your Poison for today. I’ll give my personal stamp of approval to tracks from Barn Owl, Clams Casino, Pontiak, and Witches.
