Today is both National Dog Day and Women’s Equality Day, which really combines two of my favorite things. It’s been great seeing so many photos of people with their dogs, along with plenty of positive statements emphasizing the need to eliminate things like pay gaps and other gender discriminatory practices. My only gripe is that this day had to be shared, when each realistically deserves a full day of their own. Of course there are so many “official” holidays over the course of each year that we’ve gotten way out of control. Earlier this month we celebrated Book Lovers Day, Duran Duran Appreciation Day and Annual Medical Checkup Day, all of which feel generally pointless in hindsight. Let’s try and scale it back a bit, okay? Of course four days a week we’ve got Pick Your Poison Day, which is less anything official and more just a way to occupy your time by experiencing new music. Some key tracks in this set of downloads come from Blonde Summer, Hayden Calnin, Holographic Field and Warning Light. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream songs from Bossie, Darwin Deez, GRiZ (ft. Eric Bloom), Haybaby, John Roberts, Keep Shelly in Athens (ft.
