I tend to recall February as the snowiest month of any given year, and given the light winter we’ve had thus far, I’m anticipating at least a couple storms to blow through before the end of the month. As I’m typing this, it’s snowing outside. Today it will likely only be a couple inches of snow. A little farther to the East, specifically in NW Indiana, things are much worse courtesy of lake effect snow. How much you get and where becomes so highly dependent on wind patterns. Chicago may be getting spared this time around, but let’s talk again in a week and find out how many more bullets we’ll have dodged by then. On with today’s Pick Your Poison, a grand start to your weekend. I’ll recommend tracks from The Caseworker, Cold Blue KId, Infernal Devices, Maps & Atlases, Moonface (aka Spencer Krug of Wolf Parade/Sunset Rubdown), Tindersticks and Woodsman. Andrew Weatherall’s remix of Wooden Shjips is fascinating as well, and you can stream it in the Soundcloud section.
