Let’s start the post-July 4th weekend hangover edition of Pick Your Poison with a little bit of local love. Fauvely is a talented Chicago-based singer-songwriter whose voice happens to sound a bit like Natalie Merchant. That’s not really of any importance other than to provide a frame of reference. Her latest single “Tides” feels like a step forward for her, as it’s more cleanly recorded/produced and includes additional instruments to really give everything a bigger, more widescreen sound. Speaking of a bigger sound, the new song from Henri manages to feel expansive even as the figurative walls seem like they’re closing in around it. Some remarkably great House music with a guest vocal from Imogen Rose that gives it a very distinctive Chromatics-like vibe. There’s also a lovely new one from Her’s, which adds some energy and synths to the waltzy melody, which makes it easy to get stuck in your head. Keep on driving past the jump, and you’ll also get songs from Lima x Syn, Michael Paradise, Montevideo, The Night Cafe, Nightseason, Sky Keller, Thomas Fehlmann, YK Osiris, and more.
