Okay folks, here it is. The last Pick Your Poison of 2012. After this, the site is on vacation until January 7, 2013. I don’t know about you, but I need those couple weeks to enjoy the holidays and recharge a bit. While I’m gone, in case you haven’t already checked them out, please browse through my Top 50 Albums of 2012 and Top 50 Songs of 2012. They’re both dynamic and fun lists that I’m exceptionally proud of. I hope you’ll take a look, even if it is a passing glance. Other than that, I’d like to wish you a very happy and healthy holidays. Get loads of gifts if you haven’t already, and celebrate the new year in style. I’ve got a great feeling about 2013, even if many feel that particular number is “unlucky.” We’ll take it as it comes, and hope for the best. So here’s what’s good in this final edition of Pick Your Poison for 2012. I can recommend tracks from Arc Rev One, Dent May, ExDetectives, Husky Rescue, Moonlight Towers and The Reed Fags. In the Soundcloud section (located after the jump), don’t miss streaming songs from The Band in Heaven and The Deer Tracks. Be well, friends! There’s plenty more on the way next year!
