What’s in the news, what’s in the news…here’s an interesting tale. Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, is 19 years old and apparently engaged. Interesting that she’s getting married at such a young age, but even moreso that the guy she’s engaged to looks…a LOT like her father. He also is the lead singer in a rock band. According to Carl Jung, that might signify she’s got a little bit of an Electra complex going on. Of course she never really got to know her father too well, so that makes it just a little less creepy. Still, it’s a fun little pseudo-Halloween story, less in a terrifying way and more in a generally disturbing one. Okay, let’s talk Pick Your Poison. Today’s edition is a particularly good one. I can give gold stars to tracks from Alyssa Graham, Clem Snide (covering Journey, no less), Giraffage, Guided By Voices, Jonathan Coulton, Marine Dreams, The Phenomenal Handclap Band, Remember Remember, Singapore and The Spits. In the Soundcloud section you can stream some pretty great cuts from DATAROCK and Summer Camp.
