Merry Christmas! The site is on a bit of a break for the holidays while I rest up, spend time with family and write some year-end “best of” lists (to be published soon), but ultimately I don’t want to leave you dear readers without at least a little bit of content during this period. So as my gift to you this holiday, please enjoy this expanded edition of Pick Your Poison. There’s actually a lot of quality in this collection of tracks, including a few holiday-themed choices that might just enhance your family get-togethers and such. Please enjoy downloads from Arca, Diane Coffee, jj, Love Sport, Radiohead, Sadie Dupuis (of Speedy Ortiz) and Tangerine. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream songs from Agent Bla, Anya Marina (ft. Eric Hutchinson), Doprah, Lauryn Hill (covering a Nat King Cole classic), Tove Lo and more.
