If you enjoy a few of the Manhattans you may need a Hangover Helper. This one from Marchildon! will be just the ticket.

The entire ‘Night Screamer’ album, the second from Marchildon!, is solid. It’s a collection of somewhat quirky tunes that run the gamut from folksy to cool pop rock. The lyrics are ace.

And then there is this video in which Hot Dog Dude definitely wishes he could have a drink.

Check out Marchildon! on Facebook. You can buy the music on Bandcamp.
