Pick Your Poison: Thursday 2-16-12
I’ve just come to the realization that a month from today, SXSW will be going on down in Austin, TX. I’m proud to announce that this will be the first year I will be attending. It’s part of a fun little adventure I’m calling Faronheit’s First Field Trip. There’s so much to see, do and absorb over the handful of days I’ll be there, and I’m excited to report back to you all the excitement. It also pleases me to learn that over half of my Class of 2012 will be performing sometime over that week. In fact, Pitchfork just announced that Nicolar Jaar, Grimes, Purity Ring and Charli XCX will be playing their showcase, which is taking place at a church. Fiona Apple is the only other artist on that bill, which for me makes it a must-see. As it’s a 400 capacity venue however, that’s going to be tough. We’ll see how things go once I’m there. As for today’s Pick Your Poison, I’m sure more than a few of the artists below will be at SXSW as well this year. Highlights today include tracks from Aaron & The Sea, The Cribs, Emily Jane White, La Sera, Lushlife, Midnight Magic’s remix of Panama, and White Hills. In the Soundcloud section, you don’t want to miss streaming tracks from House of Wolves, Mouse on Mars and That Ghost.
