On Friday, the lineup for the 2016 Pitchfork Music Festival was released. As many of you hopefully know, this is my favorite music festival every single year, largely due to the crazy amount of up-and-coming talent that performs, not to mention it’s relatively small size. This year continues in the tradition, with notables like Beach House, Broken Social Scene, Brian Wilson (performing Pet Sounds), Sufjan Stevens, Super Furry Animals, Carly Rae Jepsen, FKA twigs, Miguel and many more. On the more obscure side of things, emerging artists such as Car Seat Headrest, BJ the Chicago Kid, Moses Sumney, Nao, Porches, Thundercat and Whitney are all destined to impress and inspire. Check out the full lineup and buy advance tickets here. Looking forward to spending another three days in Union Park this summer, with complete coverage right here on the site. Speaking of emerging artists, there’s a whole bunch in today’s Pick Your Poison. Don’t miss downloads from Ana Caprix, C Duncan, FADES and Grosser. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream songs from Dinner, Jennifer O’Connor, John Carpenter, Kelsey Reckling, Little Scream, Mavis Staples, MOSSY, Prince Rama, Race Banyon (ft. Ty Dolla $ign), Samiyam and Slingshot Dakota.
