Pick Your Poison: Thursday 5-30-19

Let’s wrap up May with some really cool tracks as the weather finally starts to get hot. Having a numbers-only band name can be a little odd and tough to search for, but 0171 make the minor inconvenience worth it with their latest single. I’m always excited when Kate Tempest comes back with new music, because she’s such an extremely talented and dexterous poet, rapper, and lyricist. Prepare for her next album with a new track below. Toss in an addictive new one from Summer Cannibals as well for good measure, and things are shaping up quite nicely. But wait, there’s more! Cruise on past the jump for additional tracks from Aan, Alxndr London, Coucheron (ft. Sval), NF, Maude Latour, Monomotion, Seb Wildblood, Skilton Avenue, and even more.

0171 – Red Light

Kate Tempest – Holy Elixir

Summer Cannibals – Can’t Tell Me No

Pick Your Poison: Wednesday 5-29-19

Say hello to the Riot Fest 2019 lineup! The Chicago-based festival will be celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, and they’ve spared no expense at booking a strong lineup of rock bands that includes Blink-182, Slayer’s final Chicago performance, and a reunited Bikini Kill as headliners. Plenty more excellence in the undercard as well, including The Raconteurs, Rise Against, The Flaming Lips, Jawbreaker, Ween, Bloc Party, Die Antwoord, Patti Smith, Rancid, Violent Femmes, Descendents, The B-52s, Dashboard Confessional, The Struts, Bob Mould, and many more! Obviously the lineup poster is below and you know how to read, so give it a quick look! Tickets are on sale now for a pretty inexpensive $130, but prices will go up over time so the earlier you buy the better. Riot Fest 2019 takes place from September 13-15 in Chicago’s Douglas Park.

Today’s Pick Your Poison might not feature any Riot Fest artists, but there’s still plenty of great music to enjoy. Highlights come from courtship., Tourist, and Trippie Redd, but that’s definitely not all. Journey beyond the jump for songs from Ash Walker (ft. Laville), Bones & Fifty Grand, Curbi, HAN, Hanne Hukkelberg, Johari Noelle, Kemba, Lil Keed (ft. YNW Melly & Lil Uzi Vert), and Theo Bard.

Pick Your Poison: Thursday 5-9-19

There’s an unintentional theme to the three tracks in today’s Pick Your Poison highlights: nature. It starts with a delightful track from Branches, like on a tree or in a river. Then go for a swim with something new from FISHER. Follow that up by clearing out your barn of all the great Haybaby. But I digress. Slide on past the jump to discover even more new music from Aisha Devi, Carla Geneve, CJ Fly, Godlands, Jeanines, Medasin (ft. Kathleen), Mood J, Tee Grizzley, and Cosey Fanni Tutti’s reworking of a Penelope Trappes song.
