One of the worst things about the whole holiday break was the fact that I had promised to do some extra writing and compose the yearly “best of” lists, and then failed to deliver on said promise. It’s not that I didn’t try, it’s just things wound up being quite a bit busier than I had originally anticipated. That said, despite approaching mid-January and what I’m sure is list fatigue for most of you, there will still be some highlights from 2016 going up within the next week or two. I appreciate your patience and promise it’ll be worth the wait. In the meantime, please enjoy this fresh set of music, featuring downloads from AR Ferdinand (ft. Daphne), I Am The Polish Army, James Rafferty, Mykki Blanco and Pick A Piper. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream songs from Alicia Keys, The Black Madonna, Bonny Doon, Gabriel Garzon-Montano, Gold Connections, Imaginary Tricks, Japandroids, Palberta, Phoebe Bridgers, Planning For Burial, ROWVN and So Below.
Happy New Year! The holidays are now officially over and it’s time to get back to business as usual, which is equal parts exciting and depressing. You’re filled with that spirit of renewal that comes with a new year, but it’s tainted with fear for how everything will turn out. Either way, you can rest assured that Faronheit will press onward, content in the goal of delivering some of the freshest and best new music straight to your browser for the foreseeable future. So you’ve got that going for you, which is nice. Great tracks today from Consuumer, The Ferdy Mayne, Lazy Legs and Soft Lashes. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream songs from BANANA, Boss Hog, Elliott Smith, Jens Lekman, Julie Byrne, Loose Tooth, Said the Whale, Ten Fe, Thievery Corporation, Turn to Crime, Uniform and YELLE.
As we roll into the final weeks of 2016, I only feel it’s fair to warn you that things are both slowing down and picking up here at Faronheit HQ. Specifically, there’s less going on new music-wise, which means that until we reach about mid-January, the Pick Your Poison posts will become fewer and farther between. For example, this is the only set of new music you’ll be getting this week. For me personally, it’s nice to get a little bit of a break from what’s otherwise a very busy time 11 other months out of the year. But I’m also using the extra time productively, as I finish up writing for the Listmas posts highlighting the best music from 2016. That should be up and available for your reading pleasure between Christmas and New Year’s. So, you know, fun stuff. In the meantime, please enjoy these downloads from Corner Suns (ft. Sarah Jaffe), Cotton Mather with Nicole Atkins, Emma Heartbeat and Jordan Burchel. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream songs from Alasdair Roberts, Alex Clare, Ava Gloomy, clipping. (ft. SICKNESS), Knox Hamilton, Michael Angelakos (of Passion Pit), Ryan Hemsworth (ft. RYAN Playground & swim good now), So Stressed, Why?, Zimmer (ft. Fhin) and more. If I don’t talk to you, have a great holiday!
Okay, I’ve got Christmas shopping to do and a wedding to attend in Ohio this weekend, so let’s get this show on the road, shall we? Today’s edition of Pick Your Poison features downloads from Blake Rainey & His Demons, Masta Killa, MNTN, Quiet Boy and TheSpvceAge (ft. TDot Illdude).

If I recall correctly, last year there was some “concern” by a number of people in the Chicagoland area that we were not going to have a “white” Christmas. As the holidays were approaching, there was a distinct lack of snow, and pretty much anything that did fall wound up melting in relatively short order. Clearly 2016 is a different year, and as we have seen time and time again, content to mess with our expectations at every turn. After the second week in a row of receiving several inches of snow despite not even being halfway through December, bitter cold, below zero temperatures are now on tap for this week. Suddenly things are starting to feel much closer to February than December. So while I shake my fist angrily at the Polar Vortex, how about some more new music to get the blood flowing. Don’t miss downloads from John Wesley Coleman III, Jordan Burchel, Royale and Strae. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream songs from Androma & Kulkid, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Emmit Fenn, Grammar, Hand Habits, Kodie Shane (ft. Lil Yachty), Krewella, Little Simz (ft. Tilla), Quinn XCII, Sondre Larche and more!
Let’s jump right into another fun set of music to help make your week move along that much more quickly. There are some great downloads in this set from The Gods Themselves, Krallice, Minor Moon and Richie Quake. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream songs from Ab-Soul, Best Night Ever, Dominic, Fenech-Soler, Grails, Kristin Kontrol, Lil Yachty (ft. A$AP Ferg), Mega Bog, Moon Duo, Wale and more!
Hope your weekend was fantastic. Recovering from the first snowfall of the season here in Chicago, so that’s both fun and not fun at the same time. There’s something magical and majestic about snow-covered landscapes, but the whole cold, slushy mess tends to wreak havoc on the streets which isn’t great. Ah well. Got a very magical and majestic set of songs for you in today’s Pick Your Poison, and you don’t even need to exit the house to hear it. Don’t miss downloads in this set from Moonlapse, Poster, Steph Barrak, Tiger! Shit! Tiger! Tiger! and White James. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream songs from Austin Millz (ft. Tunji Ige), Carneyval & Jackson Breit, Dear Nora, Gabriel Garzon-Montano, Life Is Better Blonde (covering Frank Ocean), Run the Jewels, Smallpools, Urochromes, Whispers Beirut and more!
Now that we’re in December, it feels like as good of a time as any to mention that the annual year-end extravaganza known as Listmas will be kicking off later this month. It’s reason enough to get a little bit excited, though I’m sure as the month wears on and everybody puts out their “best of” lists this whole thing will start to feel like an exercise in tedium. At the very least, putting together these lists and carefully reflecting back on the year in music is a distinct and worthwhile pleasure. Also a pleasure? Another edition of Pick Your Poison. In this set, you won’t want to miss downloads from Almond&Olive, Lazy Legs, Moon Rabbit and The Obsessed. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream songs from G-Eazy (ft. Ashley Rose), Golden Features (ft. Julia Stone), Gutxi Bibang, Jaylib, Parcels, Rationale, Sofi de la Torre (ft. Blackbear), Sudan Archives, Uniform and more!
After a short break for Thanksgiving, it’s good to be back in action with some more new music for your ears.

Porsches), Theophilus London (ft. Ariel Pink), Tobin Sprout and more!
No matter who you’re celebrating with, I want to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving. Typically around this time it’s nice to take stock and reflect on all of the incredible blessings that have enriched our lives over the past year. Of course as just about everybody who has lived through it will tell you, 2016 has been a terrible, terrible year. We’ve lost so many incredible talents and disaster has struck at nearly every turn. At this point I’m thankful the year will be over soon. But as always, I’m grateful to you, dear reader, for visiting the site and checking out the new music that gets posted here every couple of days. I hope you’ve discovered some amazing new artists and have been inspired to go see more live music based on your experiences here on Faronheit.

Ah, Thanksgiving week. Even though it’s only Monday, I’m feeling good in the knowledge that there are only a couple days left to work before a long, relaxing weekend.
