Halloween weekend is always a great time if you’re of a certain age. Between the ages of about 4 and 12, trick or treating is where it’s at (though that’s pretty much all confined to the actual holiday, be it on a weekday or weekend). Once you get older, specifically around college age, it becomes a big drinking holiday – a reason to dress up in a costume (or a slutty costume, if you’re female) and have a party with your friends. Sooner or later though, you get old enough where big parties and drinking become old hat, and you settle down and have kids and then take them trick or treating. So just about everybody has something going for them in and around this holiday. It’s one of my absolute favorites every year too, primarily because it’s fun and there’s a bunch of horror films that also get unleashed as well. “Paranormal Activity 3” anyone? So have fun and be safe these next few days. And check your candy in case some stranger wants to poison you or your kids. And hey, that works into a nice segue about Pick Your Poison. Today’s highlights include tracks from Bass Drum of Death, Carter Tanton (with Marissa Nadler), Korallreven (with Julianna Barwick), Papertwin, Sapphire Slows, and Yamantaka/Sonic Titan.
