Today’s Tuesday, and that means it’s new album release day. I’m not going to go into what I recommend and what I don’t, I’m just going to make mention of a few records that are worth paying attention to – good or bad. I’ve featured a few of these bands in previous editions of Pick Your Poison as well, so use the search bar on the right if you’d like to hear some mp3s from them. Tune your ears to records from Botany, The Bottle Rockets, Braid, Canon Blue, Cut Off Your Hands, Fool’s Gold, Her Space Holiday, Mister Heavenly, Natalia Kills, Sundress, Tropics, Veronica Falls, The War on Drugs and Yellow Ostrich. A few of those artists actually have mp3s in today’s edition of Pick Your Poison as well. Which is why I’ll recommend tracks from Annie Crane, Ariel Abshire, Bear Lake, The Clap, Craig Wedren, Grace Jones, Maluca & Party Squad, Sundress, and Chicago’s own Word and Number. Talking specifically about remix mp3s, Chromeo’s remix of Mayer Hawthorne is pretty good, as is Botany’s remix of Tropics.
