Happy Monday to you. Hopefully it’s nice weather where you’re at. In Chicago, temperatures are about 20 degrees above normal for this time of year, meaning that it’s 60 degrees and sunny. Needless to say, it’s awesome. Spring is but a couple weeks away (officially speaking), but already there are rumors of 70+ degree days before the end of the week. I’ll be in Texas for much of it, and ironically the weather will be about the same. But rainy, I hear. More on my SXSW adventure later. In the meantime, please enjoy today’s Pick Your Poison. I’ll point you in the direction of some fime tracks from Bear in Heaven, Cuff the Duke covering Sonic Youth, James Apollo, Jenny Gillespie, Paperfangs, and Twin Trip. In the Soundcloud section you may be interested in streaming tracks from Blaustarr, Dragonette and House of Wolves.
