It’s the first official new music release day of 2013, and naturally things are getting off to a slow start. Next week will be much better. For now though, if you’re itching to pick something up, the following artists are putting out material for your enjoyment: Big Boi, Broadcast, Chris Tomalin, Dropkick Murphys, Never Shout Never, Pere Ubu, Solange and Wooden Wand. You might also be interested to know that the soundtrack to the great HBO show “Girls” is out this week, featuring tracks from Robyn, Santigold, Grouplove, Icona Pop, Belle & Sebastian and Fleet Foxes. It’s all previously released material, but if you don’t have those individual records already, it might be something to check out. Also worth checking out is today’s Pick Your Poison. Focus tracks today come from Airstrip, The Away Days, Frida Selander, Iceage, Paperfangs, Qurious and Sweet Knievel. In the Soundcloud section (after the jump), there’s streaming tracks from Ancient History, Azealia Banks, Eat Skull and The Neighbourhood.
