Happy shortened work week to you all (Americans, that is). Big four day weekend coming right up, and that includes Black Wednesday as well, the busiest bar night of the year. I hope you’ve been preparing your liver. As we wind down to the end of 2011, Pick Your Poison will be arriving in smaller, more infrequent doses. Not that I WANT it that way, but December is primarily devoted to “Best of” lists and new music releases all pretty much get thrown by the wayside. So I have less mp3s making their way to me, and in turn I’m only able to give you what I’m getting. For now, we’re still operating at about a normal level, but look for that to change starting next month. I’ll fill you in on those details as they emerge. Enjoy today’s edition though. I can recommend tracks from The Duke Spirit, Lambchop, Laura Gibson, Miracles of Modern Science, Swimming and Tycho.
