Hey friends! Pick Your Poison is on a bit of a break for the holidays, but fear not, for this week and next I’ll still have one post a week for you to stream and download fresh new music. This week there are a few leftover Christmas songs, so if you’re still in the mood for some, enjoy those. I’d also like to encourage you to check out what’s happening with Listmas, since the Top 50 Songs of 2013 countdown is complete and the Top 50 Albums of 2013 countdown is ongoing. It’s great stuff as we wrap up the year and get ready for 2014! Highlights in this extended set of downloads this week come from Black Bear/Brown Bear, Chevy Heston, colourwaves, East Edwards, Labstract, Nero, My Panda, Painted Palms, Sadie Dupuis (of Speedy Ortiz), Sampha and Savage Sister. Not much in the Soundcloud section, but How to Dress Well’s cover of Smog’s “Teenage Spaceship” is more than worth your time. Hope your holidays went well, and we’ll catch up some more shortly after New Year’s!
