Welcome back from the weekend. Hope you enjoyed your Father’s Day, whether you are a father or not. Sure, call it a greeting card holiday if you like, but it is just one of two days out of the year where we can show appreciation towards the people that raised us (or didn’t raise us, depending on your situation). Now that we’re back at the grind, the next thing to get excited about comes tomorrow with both the first official day of summer and the summer solstice. It marks the longest day of the year, from a sunlight perspective, so make the most out of it and get outside. Pick Your Poison today is pretty good, so maybe you can scoop up some fresh tunes to listen to during that daytime tomorrow. Highlights include tracks from Banded Stilts, Marlon Rando, Mazes, Prurient, Soft Metals, Twin Sister and Wild Beasts. In the Soundcloud section you’re also going to want to have a listen to a new song from Wild Flag, the project that pairs former Sleater-Kinney members Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss with Mary Timony, among others. Great, fun stuff.
