Monthly Mix #11: January 2016

January 2016:
You can use context clues to figure out this one.

1. The Helio Sequence - "Lately"
I love this song because you can interpret it how you need to.  I always think he's lying though.

2. Mason Jennings - "New York City"
I agree with Mason.

3. David Bowie - "Lazarus"
It's amazing that Bowie was able to release this beautifully dark record for his fans before his untimely passing.

4. Grey Reverend - "My Hands"
All the more poignant if you know that Grey has focal dystonia, a neurological disorder that affects the dexterity of his hands.

5. Lord Huron - "She Lit a Fire"
A reawakening.

6. Otis Redding - "Pain in My Heart"
It's insane when you remember that Redding was only 26 when he died.

7. The 1975 - "Ugh!"
The next single from their upcoming album.  I like it much better than the '80s retread "Love Me."

8. Royal Headache - "Wouldn't You Know"
While this song is a throwback to '60s pop/rock, most of the tunes on this Australian band's second LP have a punkier feel.

9. The Flaming Lips - "Do You Realize??"
Those lyrics tho.

10. Eagles - "Desperado"
R.I.P. Glenn.
