Pick Your Poison: Thursday 11-17-11
Thanksgiving is officially one week away. I don’t know about you, but I start to prepare my stomach well in advance for such an occasion. Turkey and mashed potatoes are my standbys, even as I personally dislike stuffing and cranberry sauce. Still, you pile food on multiple plates and just sit and eat for a few hours. Get a pair of extra stretchy pants just in case. Anyways, now’s typically when I begin to starve myself, eating lighter meals and snacking less, to create that hunger and arrive to the feast completely ravenous. I’m not overweight, but on Thanksgiving I eat like I am. It’s fun, and the holidays. So yeah, just a reminder to everyone as I tend to forget myself and it sneaks up on me. If you’re reading this from outside American shores, I hope this Thursday and next Thursday are both great, normal days for you. Let’s talk Pick Your Poison. Recommended tracks today come from Brown Shoe, The Lanskies, Monument Valley, Neal Morgan, Novi and Rejectioneers. In the Soundcloud section you should have a listen to tracks from Craig Finn (of The Hold Steady), Metronomy and Mint Julep. Joshua Hyslop has something for all you Christmas music fans as well.
Listen to our friends Ben (Rejectioneers) and Dan (Run Dan Run)
