Well, it finally happened: Steve Jobs has passed away. This was something that wasn’t entirely unexpected, given he was terminally ill with cancer and stepped down from his post as Apple CEO a few months ago. At that time he essentially said that he promised to continue on with the company for as long as he possibly could, which really meant he’d keep going until he was at death’s door. The guy revolutionized many things in his time with Apple, from the earliest of computers all the way through the iPod, iPhone and iPad. His impact will likely be felt for generations to come, and I’d like to take a moment to extend my condolences to his family and close friends. He will be missed, that’s definitely for sure. One of the biggest things that Steve Jobs ever did was to create iTunes to work alongside the iPod, and in many ways that has changed the music business forever. It certainly goes a distance towards the creation of Pick Your Poison. Today’s track highlights include cuts from Bitch Magnet, Finn, G-Side, Jeffrey Lewis, Pressed And, Shy Mirrors, Stevie Jackson (of Belle & Sebastian fame) and Tycho. Oh and a cool little discovery I made in the Soundcloud section: St. Vincent remixing of Montreal. Good stuff.
