Have you been keeping up with my Class of 2012 the last month and a half? There’s been plenty going on, most of it with Lana Del Rey, but I wanted to take a moment to place a spotlight directly on another one of my musical students: Grimes. Her record “Visions” comes out next week, and I’ll be reviewing it then, but for the time being I want to point out you can stream the entire thing right this second over at NPR. Should you take the 48 minutes out of your day to do that? Considering I rarely if ever point you in the direction of a full album stream, maybe you take this time to heart. Of course you may not like what I have to say in my review of the record next week, so take that for what you will. For music you can download for free, look no further than right below, where you’ll find today’s edition of Pick Your Poison. I’ll recommend tracks from Busby Marou, Dana Buoy, Field of Wolves, Man Bites Dog, The Spring Standards and Warning Light. kayln rock will handle any pre-Valentines Day music needs, and Scissor Sisters positively rock the remix of a School of Seven Bells track. There are also some solid remixes of tracks by K’naan, Lana Del Rey and Miike Snow worth checking out in the Soundcloud section as well.
