Hooray! We’ve finally arrived at that glorious time of year known as Listmas. It’s the designated weeks during December in which I compose year-end music lists and post them up in celebration of the best of 2013. Listmas is a whole lot of fun for me to put together every year, and a lot of hard work goes into it too, so I hope you’ll be checking the site regularly for updates and to find out more about my favorite songs and albums from the past year. Monday’s entry kicking things off with The Top 50 Songs of 2013 is already up, and you can read that along with all of this year’s other Listmas entries by using this link. This is something that I’m going to mention most days in my Pick Your Poison intros for the next couple weeks leading up to Christmas, so either bear with me, or sit back and enjoy the ride! There are some great tracks in today’s Pick Your Poison though, and that’s worth paying attention to as well. Don’t miss songs from Ace Reporter, Christopher Paul Stelling, The Delay in the Universal Loop, Gracy Hopkins, Maya Vik, Old Monk, The Sharp Things, Sundance (covering Bibio) and The Tranq. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream tracks from +/-, AraabMuzik, CHAPPO, Damien Jurado, Sleepy Kitty and Warpaint.
