It’s Pitchfork Music Festival Week here at Faronheit, so it is my sincere hope you’ll check out the expansive coverage of the festival that will be happening for the next seven days. Those posts will hopefully be as great of a new music discovery engine as these Pick Your Poison entries are as well. Speaking of which, enjoy today’s collection of tracks, including downloads from Automatic Writing, Jones Family Singers, Secret Friend and Strange & Primitive. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream songs from Childbirth, CocoRosie, Diet Cig, Leithauser Maroon (ex-Walkmen), Phil Cook (covering Charlie Parr), Sharkmuffin, Shopping, SWIMM and The Underachievers.
