Can music relieve a hangover? subVariant's Exception AM compiles tracks that just might

Hangovers are the annoying, productivity-inhibiting result of a night spent drinking quite a bit, and yet we still put up with them because it's fun to loosen up, be social, and dance. Sure, it's easy to pop some aspirin, rehydrate and muddle through the morning, but wouldn't it be cool if music could relieve your hangover?

That's the concept behind Exception AM, a free digital compilation from subVariant that aims to present a collection of electronic music to help you feel better in the morning after a night of drinking. To celebrate the release on June 20, the release party will be held at Ai lounge in River North as the first in a series of concept parties called "Artificial Intelligence." Liz Revision will mix the mostly-ambient and downtempo tracks from the compilation together at the beginning of the night and will then hand over the decks to local DJs Silentcorp, Andrew Kevins, Dirtybird, and Droopy to finish out the night with techno and house. The party will be free all night from 10pm-3am.

On June 20, Exception AM will be available as a free download at the Chicago-based online "geek boutique," Fractalspin: (link will work on June 20).

But, as Matt Pais over at Metromix points out,

...honestly, does anyone else think that in the midst of a nasty hangover, any music feels like a hammer in your head? If anything makes a good hangover cure--or if not a cure, at least a hangover helper--it's peace and quiet.

What do you think?
