Hello, if you’re reading this, it means I’ve gone on “vacation” for a week. The word “vacation” is in quotes, because I’m not relaxing on a beach somewhere sipping a margarita and generally enjoying life. No, I’m traveling the back roads of the United States, searching for…let’s just say something. Anyways, I’ll be back in a few days. In my stead, I have a couple Pick Your Poison posts, plus an album review. Look for those to show up throughout the week. If during my time away I find a spot with wifi, I’ll be able to answer emails and maybe even write up a few more posts for you to read, enjoy and download from. I can’t be certain that will happen, but if it does, it’ll show up on the main page of the site. Regular site business resumes on Sept. 17, 2012. Until then, please enjoy this Pick Your Poison. Highlights include tracks from Carolyn Mark, Catherine Irwin, Freddie Gibbs, Jackie Scott, Marissa Nadler (covering Fleetwood Mac), Paul Stewart, and Teitur. In the Soundcloud section, you can stream good stuff from Gentleman Reg, I Am Oak, Maserati and Patrick Wolf (covering Lana Del Rey).
