Sometimes you just want a song on your phone or hard drive without having to rely on a streaming service, you know? Anyway, some can’t-miss downloads in this set come from Hurricane Mike (ft. The Way), Mira Cook, Wy, and Young Hunting. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream songs from DJ plead, Duke Dumont (ft. Shaun Ross), Gurr, Jackie Mendoza, James TW, John Vanderslice, Kid Sister, Matroda (ft. BRUX), Max Styler (ft. Elanese), Nathan Micay, Oberst & Buchner (ft. Tobias Koett), and Summer Heart.

Happy Valentine’s Day! Wishing you plenty of love and happiness whether you’re single or in a relationship. I’ll be spending my evening at a Sharon Van Etten show, which promises to be a lovely time. While not every song in today’s Pick Your Poison is related to love, Tourist’s “Love Theme” fits the bill with a great guest spot from Shura. If you’re feeling blue today, SG Lewis can relate, plus Teen Daze seek to brighten your day with “Endless Light”. Keep going past the jump for more songs from Cubbi, Dennis Lloyd, John Paul White, love-sadKiD, NETSKY (ft. Bazzi & Lil Wayne), Pecas, Red Mass, Saycyl & h2the, and ShadowHood.

I’ve got no complaints about today’s edition of Pick Your Poison, especially when it features new music from Jai Wolf (ft. Day Wave), Jenny Lewis, and Laurel Halo. All extremely talented artists worth your time. But also maybe don’t limit yourself to just those three songs, and move beyond the jump for more music from blackbear, COG, Daniel Thorne, Light Conductor, Orla Gartland, Pregnant Women, Reggie Got Beats & Vebjørn Mamen, Rudy De Anda & Hanni El Khatib, and YK Osiris.

Part of me really wanted to start today’s Pick Your Poison by saying that everything was coming up roses. Of course I’m talking about Anna Rose and Rosie Tucker, who are both right at the top of the highlights. After the jump there’s also a song from Esther Rose, so the thematic connection makes perfect sense. But also I’m recommending that you check out the new one from Chicago’s own Walking Bicycles. Need even more music? How about tracks from Dan D’Lion, Dijon, Mitchell Yard, RL Grime & Graves, Seafret, Softcore Untd., ViVii, and Wy.
Anna Rose – Nobody Knows I’m Here
Rosie Tucker – Habit
Walking Bicycles – Fat Cat
In addition to the Super Bowl, Groundhog Day was also last weekend. Traditionally the groundhog predicts six more weeks of winter, but this year we’ve been promised an early spring. Of course putting our collective faith in a rodent to predict the weather feels like a fool’s errand. It’s just nice to keep the hope alive for warmer temperatures and flowers blooming. Maybe the tracks in today’s Pick Your Poison will help put you in a springtime frame of mind, especially as those of us in Chicago continue in a deep freeze. Don’t miss new ones from Bayonne, Justus Proffit, and Patio to kick things off right up top. You’ll find even more after the jump, including songs from Augustine, Bear Grillz (ft. RUNN), Deorro, Far Caspian, Kendoll, Maria Somerville, NO WIN, Prince Fox, and Zsela.
Bayonne – Same (Edit)
Justus Proffit – Hole
Patio – Boy Scout
So the Super Bowl happened yesterday, and while I won’t comment on the game itself or even Maroon 5’s halftime performance, I will bring up Big Boi’s guest appearance as he unleashed two new songs over the weekend in help promote it. One of those tracks is featured below, complete with guest spots from Killer Mike and Backbone. Also worth your time to check out are new songs from Olivia O’Brien and Quinn XCII. You’ll find even more after the jump, including tracks from Chantel Jeffries (ft. YG, Rich the Kid, & BIA), EXES x JOME, Galantis (ft. OneRepublic), Gunna, Hazey Eyes (ft.

If you’re not yet sold on the talents of Billie Eilish yet, perhaps her latest single will be the thing that pushes you over the edge in the right direction. Honestly, I was a little underwhelmed with her live show at Lollapalooza last August, as it seemed like she didn’t want to be there, but thinking about it further that might just be her aesthetic. Other highlights in today’s Pick Your Poison come from Beach Slang and Perfume Genius (who does an AMAZING cover of an Empress Of song). Ride on past the jump for more music from Aaron May, Alice Crow Buckly, Baby FuzZ, Ben Hayes, Cautious Clay, DJ Plead, Isaac Dunbar, Shlohmo, and Tim Atlas.
Beach Slang – I Hate Alternative Rock
Billie Eilish – bury a friend
Perfume Genius – When I’m With Him (Empress Of cover)
