Pick Your Poison: Tuesday 7-31-12
It’s a relatively weak week for new album releases, which is just fine by me. We’re gearing up for a big fall with new stuff from Animal Collective and Grizzly Bear, among others. For those looking to pick something up from your physical or digital music retailer, be aware there’s new stuff out this week from Allen Stone, Black Swans, Blur (Their 21 box set), IlldotLogic, Joshua Radin, Major Lazer, Reel Big Fish, Sacred Caves, Shannon McArdle, and Wildlife Control. If you’re really looking to hear a great new record though, next week my Class of 2012 artist Blonds will be releasing their debut LP The Bad Ones. You can stream the whole thing right now exclusively at Stereogum. For individual songs though, look no further than right here and this edition of Pick Your Poison. Don’t miss some strong mp3s from Balmorhea, Gemini Club, THe Helio Sequence, Mapuche, Trails and Ways, Vitalic and White Poppy. The Soundcloud section has some great audio streams too from the likes of the A$AP Mob, Beak>, Children and Mungolian Jetset.
