Broken Records “My Beer Drunk Soul is Sadder Than All the Dead Christmas Trees in the World” (2014)

Self Released
Buy: Free!

It is a day of Scots I tell ya! Edinburgh’s Broken Records have recorded an original tune to be (no doubt) played at the Christmas Songwriters’ Club concert in Edinburgh on December 20th. I hope that all the participants release their songs – that would be amazing!! When I saw the title, I thought it might be a Joy Formidable cover, but it does appear to be a straight-up original. I love the swelling brass, the driving beat, and this vocalist is f*ing fantastic. Listen, listen, LISTEN (to both this song, and their others too. Just let the Soundcloud feed rolllllll).

Bottom Line: This is a rock solid addition to my mix in 2015, and top ten I’ve heard this year no doubt. 5/5

  1. It’s good but not as good as The Joy Formidable’s “My Beer Drunk Soul…”

    BTW The Joy Formidable are an amazing live band. Funny enough I am not too much into concerts but I did enjoy their gig very much.


  2. I am sorry, I am bit dizzy and didn’t read your article, came straight from FB to leave a comment here. I hope I will get one Christmas post up today. German TV station aired 3 episodes of Grey’s Anatomy today, so my weekly soundtrack post had been a real pain in the ass. At least there will be a break for some month….
