Oof. I don’t know about you, but it was a rough weekend for me. As you get older, the realization slowly dawns on you that perhaps your body can’t quite handle heavy partying quite like it used to. Suddenly you’ve got body aches and a hangover for two days, and those consequences just aren’t very fun. But we press on, and try to learn from the mistakes. It’s kind of like the foundations behind Pick Your Poison, in the sense that there’s lots of music for your ears to digest, and not all of it might not be to your liking, but over time you get better at filtering out the junk. Allow me to recommend downloads in this set from August and After, Erik Nilsson, Mara Simpson and Mosaics. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream songs from Aloha, Britta Phillips, Caveman, Exploded View, Fujiya & Miyagi, Institute (covering The Doors), Jessy Lanza, Julianna Barwick (ft. Mas Ysa), River Tiber, The Loom and This Will Destroy You.
