Hurricane Irene is steadfastly making plans to cause all sorts of problems along the East Coast this weekend. If you live in or around that area, I wish you the best and safest weekend possible. May all your possessions remain intact and all your streets avoid flooding. It’s been a very long time since the U.S. has had a hurricane of such magnitude strike the East Coast, so batten down the hatches and prepare for some sharply inclement weather. For those of you with a wild and crazy streak, I hope you grab a surf board and try to catch some of those killer waves that are showing up. Just try not to get killed. Today’s Pick Your Poison is pretty good for weathering a storm, plenty of excellent songs to recommend. Thumbs up go to songs from CAVE, Ganglians, Gem Club, LCTRISC, Luke Temple, Meg Baird, Mungolian Jetset, Nurses, Sun Hotel and Sun Wizard.
