Oh, I love these extended editions of Pick Your Poison, mostly because I still believe in free music downloads as a format. There’s something comforting about having a song always available on your laptop or phone, where you don’t need to connect to Spotify or Soundcloud to listen to it. Of course I realize that’s a somewhat unpopular opinion these days, but don’t particularly care. If downloads are still your thing as well, you might want to check out tracks from The Chairman Dances, Favours, Lee Mazin, and Static Diary. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, you’ll also find songs from Chantel Jeffries (ft. Vory), CHILDCARE, Fabolous (ft. Ty Dolla $ign), Future Generations, Galantis, I Am J Dubb (ft. Money Man), K. Roosevelt, Late Night Episode, Russo, Seafret, World’s Fair (ft. Nasty Nigel, Cody B. Ware, Freaky Franz), and more!

Normally I’d wait until I had a few more downloads to share before including them in an extended Monday edition of Pick Your Poison, but I’m feeling saucy today and it’s nice outside and whatever other excuses I need to make to justify this. Ultimately, it doesn’t make much of a difference. You should absolutely check out tracks from Lev Snowe, Lovehoney, and Oh Joy, among others. Then cruise on past the jump into the Soundcloud section for streams from artists like Blaise Moore, Charlotte Lawrence, Dagny, Future Generations, Gorillaz (ft. George Benson), Hotel Mira, StayLoose (ft. Taheran), THEY., UnoTheActivist, Vic Mensa (ft. G-Eazy), and Walton.

Hope your vinyl collection is flush with whatever you picked up this weekend for Record Store Day. Personally, I slept in and then stopped by the very tiny shop a few blocks from my apartment to browse over whatever they had left. There wasn’t much available (they purposely didn’t order a lot because they’re so small), but I still managed to snag a copy of the original 2011 version of Car Seat Headrest’s Twin Fantasy, which was re-recorded and released with some different arrangements and lyrics earlier this year. Also, even though it wasn’t s Record Store Day exclusive, I finally purchased a copy of INXS’ classic album Kick in celebration of its 30th anniversary. Feel free to share what you picked up in the comments. As for today’s Pick Your Poison, I’m happy to recommend downloads in this set from In Sonitus Lux, Laura Jane Grace (Against Me!), Phosphenes, and Youth in a Roman Field.

We’re halfway through April, and honestly I just can’t wait for May when that whole spring-to-summer transition finally starts to kick in. It’s still freezing in Chicago in the meantime, to the point where it snowed today. Not fun. But maybe this expanded edition of Pick Your Poison will help things. Don’t miss downloads in this set from Alex Dingley, The Black Watch, Good Rats, and Sleepspent. In the Soundcloud streams section after the jump, check out songs from ANNALIA, The Bones of J.R. Jones, Bryde, Hardwell & Steve Aoki (ft. Kris Kiss), Juanita Stein, The Magic Numbers, Marian Hill, Moncrieff & JUDGE, RAI, Trinidad Cardona, Uninamise, and more!

It’s Easter Week, but I’ve got a healthy dose of poptimism on the brain in preparation for two big shows rolling through Chicago this week – Lorde and Justin Timberlake.

Hard to believe that February is almost over. Then again, it is the shortest month of the year. It’s also one of the worst months of the year, at least in the Midwest where bitter cold and snow tend to dominate. The music has been good though, today’s Pick Your Poison included.

Normally on a Monday I’d have about double the amount of downloads for you to enjoy, but unfortunately the numbers just aren’t quite there this week. Ah well. You can still pick up some great tracks from the likes of Errant Boy, Luna Shadows, and Red Black Red. The Soundcloud section after the jump has you covered with some streams from Alison Wonderland, August Greene, Bonny Doon, Chez Ali, Esbie Fonte, Gift Wrap, Helena Deland, Holly Miranda, Jouska, Simone Felice, Steve Kroeger, and Vera.
