Can you believe we’re already halfway through August? It seems like just yesterday we were still in the heat and severe weather-ravaged July. I suppose time does fly when you’re having fun, and considering in the last couple weeks I’ve seen Paul McCartney live and spent 3 days at Lollapalooza, the quick pace makes perfect sense to me. Soon enough fall will be here and colder temperatures along with it. I’m a fan of sweater weather, but there’s still plenty about the sun-drenched summer I love with unbridled passion. Hopefully you’re making the most of the warm temperatures while they still last. Pick Your Poison will not die off with the leaves though, so that might be the one sunny thing in your daily life. Tracks I can recommend today come from The Bottle Rockets, High Places, Little Girls (covering John Maus), Peter Wold Crier and Trans Am. In the Soundcloud section you can stream some good cuts from Feist, Neon Indian and Ladytron, among others.
