It’s new album release Tuesday, and I don’t have much for you to check out this week. Things are getting sparser and sparser as we run towards the end of 2011. Kate Bush’s new album “50 Words for Snow” is just about the only new new release, that is to say if you ignore all the collections of greatest hits, singles, holiday songs and live albums. So do with that what you will. In today’s Pick Your Poison, be sure to give at least a passing glance at tracks from Ben Kweller, Boots Electric, Br’er, Deleted Scenes, Fol Chen, of Montreal and Wooden Wand and the Briarwood Virgins. There’s also a pretty good Freddie Gibbs track in the Soundcloud section up for your streaming pleasure.
