So I’m faced with…let’s call it a slight dilemma. If you’re a regular visitor to the site, you may have noticed the Pick Your Poison posts showing up less frequently than usual. That’s less to do with any laziness on my part and more to do with the increasing struggle to find a balanced amount of content. When I say “balanced,” I mean a relatively solid mixture of song downloads and streams. As is the trend, the downloads are becoming much fewer while the streams only increase in number. We’re all essentially moving toward a streaming world anyways, right? The dilemma is whether to continue to hold back some posts for the sake of building up a steady arsenal of downloads to include with the streams, or to just let it all out there as it comes in, even if it’s an entire post of streams. Heavily leaning towards the latter, especially since I’m sitting on about 30 songs you should be able to hear sooner rather than later. For today though, enjoy this “standard” edition of Pick Your Poison, complete with downloads from Beth // James, Boreen, Lao, Matt Pond PA, Mija and Mo Troper. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream songs from Cloud Nothings, CUZ (ft. Killer Mike, Damaged Bug, Duch Uncles, Froth, Hater, Jake Xerxes Fussell, Kelly Lee Owens (ft. Jenny Hval), Kodie Shane, Savoy (ft. Fatherdude), Ty Segall and more!
