For the very first Pick Your Poison post in the month of October, here’s a special little rarity for you: 100% mp3s. Yes, every day there’s pretty much at least one track available for streaming only via Soundcloud, some of them being good enough where you wish you were able to download and keep it on your hard drive. Not today, though honestly it’d be nice if I could make these songs available to stream as well as download. There’s proper technology that would help me do it, but the attempts I’ve made to install it have gone less than perfectly. So that remains a work in progress, but hey, feel free to download all these tracks to your heart’s content, and if you’re desperate for a stream to hear what you might be getting, check The Hype Machine as they usually aggregate these posts anyways. Tracks I can recommend today come from A.A. Bondy, Blessed Feathers, Catherine AD, Marissa Nadler (covering Leonard Cohen, no less), Mwahaha, and Young Antiques.
