To catalogue my musical experiences for the month, I’m going to present my three favorite singles and my favorite CD that I found this month. I think the theme for the month was “folk/country”, surprisingly. A lot of the singles that I enjoyed (and found on hypemachine) were in that vein. I, of course, have my horrible taste on display at hypem to make it easy for everyone to judge me.

I think Obama’s inauguration is obscuring my better judgment, but hey, if there was any month to listen to this song, it was this January. Runner-up was the not-incredibly-inspired but incredibly-fun Royksopp remix, “What Else Is There (Thin White Duke Remix)” [mediafire].
Yeah, I’m finally jumping on the Deerhunter bandwagon. I don’t think it was as great as some other people do, but the soft vocals and tinkling music just kept drawing me in.
