It’s a rainy start to the week here in Chicago, but the good news is that spring has officially arrived and it seems like the snow won’t be back until at least November. Of course it’s not like there was much of a winter this past year anyways, what with unseasonably warm temperatures in January and February, plus almost no measurable snow during either of those months. So the inconvenience was mild at worst. But look at me, wasting time talking about the weather. There’s a full edition of Pick Your Poison to dig into!

Pick Your Poison: Monday 2-27-17

Here’s some great news to start the week: The Pitchfork Music Festival returns this summer from July 14-16 at Union Park in Chicago! They’ve just announced three incredible headliners, which are LCD Soundsystem, A Tribe Called Quest and Solange. The rest of the lineup will apparently be announced in the coming weeks. It’s definitely a great start though, and if you want to buy tickets (single day or three day), they’re on sale now. Beyond standard tickets they’re also offering a new Pitchfork +PLUS option, which is basically VIP access throughout the festival grounds, including special food vendors, bars and seating areas (among other things). That’ll cost you $365, versus a standard $175 3-day pass or a $75 single day pass. Anyways, Pitchfork is my absolute favorite music festival to attend every single year, and if you’ve never been I strongly recommend picking up a ticket. More details as they trickle out! Let’s dive into today’s Pick Your Poison, which includes downloads from Cousin Dan, The Head, Secret Science and Seven Day Sleep. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream songs from Amber Arcades, Alex Napping, Blanck Mass, Bonny Doon, David Bazan, The Cairo Gang, CLOSENESS, Jay Som, Jenn Grant, Sango, Uppermost and You’ll Never Get to Heaven.
