Can you believe that we’re already halfway through 2013 already? This is the last Tuesday of June, meaning that six months of new albums have been released so far this year. There’s been some truly great ones, more than most other years in my recent memory. It feels kind of like we’re blessed to have so much great music coming out this year, and there’s another six months to go that’s going to be hopefully equally as good. Anyways, here’s a list of artists putting out new stuff this week to help round out the first half of the year: Bass Drum of Death, Bosnian Rainbows, Candy Claws, David Yow, Dessa, Femi Kuti, Her Royal Harness, Lightning Dust, Mavis Staples, Middle Class Rut, oOoOO, Palms, Rose Windows, Scott Lucas and the Married Men, Smith Westerns, Statistics (featured below!), Wale and Wise Blood. Pick something out and buy it at your favorite retailer this week, physical or digital, whatever your preference. Support music, because if we don’t then the artists we love might just go away, and nobody wants that. But hey, there’s always new artists and bands in the pipeline to learn about as well. That’s what Pick Your Poison is all about. Don’t miss tracks today from Angel Haze, The Blunt Sinatras, Filligar, Mission Dorado, Toy Soldiers, Weird Womb and White Dove. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream songs from Boat Club, Diarrhea Planet, NGHBRS, and Typhoon.
