It's everyone's favorite day of the week. Friday. While we stare at the clock for the next two or three hours and count down every single second until the work day (/school day) finishes, we've rounded up our favorite Soundcloud releases from the past week for the weekly Staff Picks playlist. Last week we got pretty indie on you guys, but this week we have more of a balance between underground/rising artists and established dudes. You'll also see how the playlist gets increasingly ratchet as it wears on. Give it play tonight or during your weekend activities.
