Is anybody else concerned about the state of the debt ceiling right now? Better yet, how about the government? It’s less than a week before the deadline officially hits, and the two political parties appear to be holding firm to their own sides of the spectrum. I’m not here to lecture or push for my own opinions on the matter, but my main concern right now is that it just gets done. In order for that to happen though, somebody’s going to need to swallow their pride and cross some aisles. Let’s hope cooler and smarter heads prevail. Alright, let’s get on talking about today’s Pick Your Poison. Tracks I can recommend come from The Features, Fool’s Gold, Geoffrey O’Connor, Howth, No Age, Oh Minnows, Release the Sunbird and Total Babes. In the Soundcloud section there are some good ones too, in particular from The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and Widowspeak.
