Hard to believe we’ve only got a month and a half left of 2016. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for this year to be over. It’s been terrible for a myriad of reasons. One of the big ones is all the celebrity deaths. We’ve lost too many talented people. The epic and profound Leonard Cohen in just the last week, actually. The moment you think it can’t get any worse, suddenly it does. Thankfully there have been some bright spots, notably on the music side of things. I’m excited to wrap up 2016 with the annual year-end list extravaganza, which will be jam-packed with favorites. Some of the tracks in today’s Pick Your Poison may even make an appearance as well. Don’t miss downloads in this set from Blake Rainey & His Demons, Corner Suns, The Gods Themselves and Spelling Reform. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream songs from Celadon City, courtship., Fred Thomas, Hembree, Julie Byrne, Power Trip, Seven Lions & Echos, So Stressed, Swimm, Ty Segall, Xiu Xiu and more!
