PHW Songs of the Month - 1/08

Yesterday I wrote about my favorite album of the month, and you should check it out if you haven’t already. On the songs front, January saw a bunch of good tunes come our way to kick off 2008 with a bang. Here are my 3 favorites as of this writing. A shimmering, desperate ballad from an unknown one-man band, a drunken sing along, and a sonic boom that comes from where Bee Thousand meets Sonic Youth.

Bruce W. Derr
MP3 :: Banker Alcoholics
(from The Time Of Day. Listen here)

The Magnetic Fields
MP3 :: Too Drunk To Dream
(from Distortion. Buy here)
Previously on PHW: New Sounds Goin’ Round

Times New Viking
MP3 :: (My Head)
(from Rip It Off. Buy here)

Could be a trend here - a song called "Banker Alcoholics", a song about being "too drunk to dream" with the line "sober, life is a prison, shitfaced, it is a blessing", and a another song with the line "I need more money cuz I need more drugs" as its thesis. I just want to make it clear that this is a family oriented mp3/music blog. Pop Headound does not condone the excess consumption of potentially harmful substances in any way, shape, or form. Unless said substances are a way for you to cope with stress and/or the only way you know how to have fun. In which case, indulge away.
