Since we’re still in a bit of a lull to start off the year, let me take a very quick moment to tell you a little about what to expect from Faronheit in 2014. Once we really get going, I’m genuinely hoping this is going to be the best year ever for the site. Here’s why. In terms of content, you’ll still be getting the same Pick Your Poison posts four (sometimes five) days a week. Additionally, the plan is to return to multiple album reviews each week. They won’t be the same long form thinkpieces like I have done in the past (and which have started to take me weeks to write), but instead more compacted single paragraph reviews like my writeups for the Top 50 Albums of 2013 posts. It may not get as in depth as I’d like, but it will present more content that will be easy and quick to read. As another means of content, starting in February I’ll be highlighting a single song on the site as my “Song of the Week.” You’ll learn more about that and see what I mean when it starts up next month. Lastly, there will be a Class of 2014. Much like my Class of 2013 and Class of 2012, I will be selecting 10 artists to watch closely over the course of this year, and see how they blossom. Past alumni include Grimes, Frank Ocean, Lana Del Rey, Haim, Chvrches, Savages and many more. I’ve got the Class of 2014 artists already picked out, so expect a post introducing them to you within the next week or so. This is gonna be fun! Speaking of fun, here’s today’s Pick Your Poison, which has some great tracks from Acid Fast, Bass Science, Gem Club, Mykki Blanco, Protomartyr and Treasure Fingers & The Knocks. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream songs from Bleeding Rainbow, Bombay Bicycle Club, Kyla La Grange, A Sunny Day in Glasgow and Vanaprasta, among others.
