So I don’t know about you, but I’ve been spending the last few days listening to Kanye West and Jay-Z’s new collaborative effort “Watch the Throne”. It’s a fascinating record made that much moreso courtesy of two of hip hop’s most important voices. I’ll have my official review of it later this week, but in case you weren’t aware it was out there, now you know. Also, you’ve probably been living under a rock. Speaking of rock, and speaking of music you’re unaware of, a huge part of the design of Pick Your Poison is to help you discover fresh and new music you’d not heard of before. Today you can hear some great moments from artists like ANR, Eric Sarmiento, I Break Horses, Prophets & Kings, Pterodactyl, Siblings and Sevens, Soley, and Tom Morello. White Sea’s remix of Active Child is great too, and in the Soundcloud section, be sure to check out a track from the new Beirut album.
