Okay, as part of unofficial Riot Fest week, I’m going to provide an ever-so-brief preview of each day of the festival, essentially just giving you a list of artists to see and not anything else. As bare bones as it gets. So if you’ll be heading to Douglas Park this weekend, here are some names you want to keep an eye (and ear) out for on Friday (in order of set time): Skating Polly, Tobacco, Liars, Saul Williams, X, Buzzcocks, The Hotelier, Death From Above, Ministry, The Cribs, New Order, Vic Mensa, and of course Nine Inch Nails. I hope that helps, to some minor degree. I’ll have a list of Saturday artists for you tomorrow!

In today’s Pick Your Poison, get another dose of beautiful synth pop for your Tuesday with another new one from Anna of the North. Give a proper welcome to fall with Josh Ritter’s latest folk track, which includes a guest spot from the Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir. Also, enjoy a bouncy and rather addictive Britpop-styled song about William Shatner from The Wedding Present. Take a trip past the jump, and you’ll also find new tracks from A Boogie wit da Hoodie (ft. PnB Rock & YoungBoy Never Broke Again), EXSSV (ft. Pixel Terror), filous (ft. Klei), The Fluids, Human Heat, Maty Noyes, No Warning, and Synead.
