RadioPotato’s Top 5 Songs for February 2011


February is famous for LOVE and these songs are definitely in RadioPotato’s love nest.  Particularly excited about this list as they are so fresh, some don’t have videos or haven’t been released yet.  Others are just breaking to some serious critical buzz. Check out the songs, discover the artists, and VOTE for your favorite in the embedded poll below! Last month’s poll was a bloodbath between Dan Sartain and Andrew Vait but a great showing overall. Congrats for the win, Dan!  Your Facebook war was hilariously dirty but your music is oh, so good!

1.  “I LAY MY HEAD” – FALLULAH – Stolen from killer music blog The Wounded Jukebox, Fallulah (aka Maria Apetri) is a Danish musician born to Balkan dancers.  Tribal rhythm and playful percussion reign supreme in this infectiously upbeat number.  Her entire album The Black Cat Neighborhood (Sony Music Denmark) is so artfully fresh and so tight, it makes me want to move to Eastern Europe to get more.  Fallulah’s new album is set to be released in America this year.  Official Website | Facebook | Twitter | MySpace

2.  “ME AND THE KID” – THE HIT BACK – Another theft from The Wounded Jukebox, The Hit Back is an electro-acoustic pop duo from Chicago made up of Jesse Hanabarger and Seth Weidmann.  “Me and the Kid” has an intoxicating blend of repetitive keyboard and drum samples that builds into a dance of melody and emotion-filled vocals.  The driving force of the synth-infused song adds intensity with a decidedly satisfying pop finish.  You can download it now on their Bandcamp site or wait for their official release of the physical CD on April 26th.  Official Website | Facebook | Twitter

3.  “DEVIL MOON” – SLOW RUNNER – I’m such a huge fan of Charleston-based band Slow Runner.  Not quite indie and not quite pop, this keyboard-based lyrically-driven band is about to release their new album Damage Points on March 15th.  “Devil Moon” is a chill and contemplative song that brilliantly describes the feeling of being in a rut. “Sleep driving through another year/Always miss the part that just disappears/Held together by some chords and caffeine/Trade my piano for a time machine/Devil Moon, I hope you finish with me soon/ I’m turning into some kind of pathetic cartoon” You can always count on this band for award-winning clever lyrics and insanely smart-ass tweets.  No video yet so you get to look at their creepy picture instead.  Official Website | Facebook | Twitter | Download | Slow Runner Interview

4.  “CYCLES” – JEFFREY SLAPE – A hopeful dad sent me an e-mail about his 17-year old son asking to give his music a listen.  Honestly, most of the music that is sent to me is crap so this was such a refreshing change.  Simple in that it’s a folk-infused acoustic guitar and just his vocals, Georgia-based Jeffrey Slape’s song “Cycles” is heartfelt and stirring account of the cycles of life.  Wise beyond his years, Jeffrey taught himself how to play a guitar and just released his first EP “Cycles.”  No video yet but you can hear it in the Grooveshark player above and vote below.  ReverbNation Page | Facebook | Download

“LOVE AND DEVOTION” – WISER TIME – Desperate for a killer rock song to round out my Top 5 for Feb, a fortuitous click on the face of  “Carmen Sclafani” on Facebook did the trick.  Turns out the little blue-eyed hottie I went to high school with has his own kick-ass bluesy rock band.  “Love and Devotion” is the perfect song to hang out, drink beer, shoot pool, and rock out to at your favorite bar.  Strongly influenced by The Black Crowes and paying homage to his singer/songwriter roots, Carmen and his band Wiser Time released their third full-length album Beggars and Thieves last year.  You can download their song “Love and Devotion for FREE below.  Video below is just a sample of their live show but not the actual song.  Official Website | Facebook | Twitter
