RadioPotato’s Top 5 Songs for August 2011


Clutching on to every bit of summer is my main occupation. Finding the best new music for RadioPotato is next in line. In peculiar fashion, I was in an .mp3 rut. Among all the searching and submissions I get, nothing was good enough. So out of the doldrums came these five songs skyrocketing and now they are being freshly delivered to you. Congrats to Milo Greene for winning July’s top song. In the meantime, LISTEN, VOTE for your favorite in the embedded poll below, and SHARE with your friends!

“VIDEO GAMES” – LANA DEL REY – Sultry, somber, and pure cinema.  This ingenue from New York had someone comment on her Facebook page that his clothes fall off at the sound of her voice.  The faint bells and military march drumbeat underneath gives the feel of a dead man walking as Lana (born Lizzy Grant) waxes sarcasm to her emotionally unavailable lover as the strings stirringly swell.  Dubbed as the “Gangsta Nancy Sinatra,” her voice is so haunting and you can’t take your eyes off of her in the video.

“HEMLOCK” – QUIET HOUNDS My favorite funny blogger Ashley Hesseltine sent me this band and as soon as I heard it, I knew it belonged here. I was surprised they were so new because the sounds are so TIGHT! My understanding is that it was written and recorded in two weeks. They are getting ready to release their first album Night Parade and the info I’ve got on them is short so here’s the story I’m making up based on this song. They have British influences, are meticulously committed to a well-crafted melody, and the piano/guitar combination pulses with a drive for triumph. Lead me to the rapture, boys!  Take me home.  Official Website | Facebook | Twitter

“MEXICO” – THE STAVES Remember that scene in “O Brother Where Art Thou” where the enchanting dames sing and seductively lure the men to bite the proverbial apple?  Yeah, these Liverpool, UK-based sisters’ exquisitely delicate harmonies will bring men to their knees and their lilting beauty will have this lady consider a trip to Mexico just to keep hearing what simple perfection sounds like.  “I want to see the colors of another sky” breathes life into a broken soul.  The Staves EP is out now and they are currently recording their full-length album across the pond.  Official Website | Facebook | Twitter  | MySpace 

“AMALGAM” – HALOS – This song is the most straightforward rock song I’ve featured on this site. Los Angeles’ quintet Halos has this chorus that reminds me of the crashing crescendos of 30 seconds to Mars. Captured by the beauty of this video and the urgency in Dan Lyman’s voice was enough to put my ears in a stranglehold. It’s totally California and you’ll feel your blood start to heat up as the song plays on. Halos just released “Living Like Kings in Confined Spaces” on Mandrake Records.

“COVER GIRL (Acoustic)” – SAINTS OF VALORY My girl @jrzygyrl is going to FREAK when she sees her boys on this Top 5.  Austin’s quartet has a sugary pop sensibility and the music is so tight, you can’t help but give up a “whoa oh ohohohoh” or two while listening.  Infectious hand claps, upbeat acoustic guitar, and a bed of keys make this perfect for essential summer songs.  With only one of the band members from the US, they’ve got an international flair and are gaining popularity across the globe with their latest EP Neon Eyes.  Just ask Jrzygyrl, this band can ROCK live, too.  “When life gets crazy, shake it, baby!”   Official Website | Facebook | Twitter | Download

    Cover girl isn’t a cover song.. it’s a song about a singer who does covers, so a cover girl. It’s an original Saints Of Valory song
