I probably say this every month, but February was ridiculously good. A lot of indie, and quality hip hop on here. You know the drill…download below, my top 5, followed by the track listing!
Jordan’s Top 5:
It wouldn’t be fair if 2/5 songs were KiD CuDi, so I combined them into one! Teleport 2 Me, Jamie will probably go down as Cudder’s best “rock” song because most people enjoy it and some fans haven’t been to excited about his upcoming release in WZRD. Oh, and it also doesn’t hurt to have over 100 plays in one month… Dose of Dopeness was an urban legend that finally saw the light of day and this song provides the main reason why people started to fall in love with this guy back in 2008.
Carousel is my favorite indie band. I’m new to the indie world, and with only a few songs, Carousel has taken me to a whole other side of music. Open Road is an adventure that will get you movin’ and groovin’! Songs like these? They just “make it eaassssyyy!”
Oh, look! Another indie song in my top 5! Are you catching a pattern here? Arjun dubbed them “2012′s Foster The People” and I hope he’s right. Looking forward to watch Walk The Moon progress this year.
Instantly fell in love with this. Don’t know too much about Rhye, but this one works best on a rainy day. Try not to sing and snap along with the instrumental? Yeah, slightly impossible.
These songs are in no particular order, but the last one listed was the one I had problems with. I wasn’t sure who was going to take it. Meg Myers, Wildcat! Wildcat!, B.o.B, Timeflies, G-Eazy, The Dean’s List, and I didn’t know what to do! To settle the tie breaker, I went to the play count and Timeflies won. Under The Sea is arguably their best Timeflies Tuesday and when they finally released a full version, they left everyone wet. Am I allowed to say that or is that too much?
Honorable Mentions: Meg Myers, Wildcat! Wildcat!, B.o.B, G-Eazy, The Dean’s List, Domo Genesis, Kendrick Lamar, 2Am Club and many, many more.
