Weekly Jukebox: 2/15/10

Fanfarlo – “Harold T. Wilkins”

For anybody getting tired of the ridiculously snowy winter months, check out this song and imagine yourself cruising on a highway in a red, drop-top convertible, en route to absolutely nowhere. Maybe the lyrics don’t scream “road trip,” but you could definitely use this song to lay over a montage of driving with your hair in the wind. I’m just saying. These guys make their U.S. television debut on Letterman later tonight, so set your Tivos for 10:35 CT and get yourselves a little preview. It’s good stuff.

Suzi Ragsdale – “Troublemaker”

Somewhere in between country and blues is this toe-tapping diddy from Suzi Ragsdale and Rodney Crowell. It’s catchy as hell, and what makes it even more interesting is that Ragsdale doesn’t just do music—she’s also a pusher of yoga and fine foods. I swear to God I’m not making this up.

Flobots – “White Flag Warrior”

FreshScouts believes strongly in what the Flobots do. Musically they know how to walk the tightrope between hip-hop and rock where a lot of fusion artists fall short, but mostly we love that these guys actually stand for something. Lead vocalist Jonny 5 is a talented cat, and this new cut from the guys does some cool stuff with off-beats while still managing to bring what we’d expect from a hot Flobots track. Throw in the fact that Tim McIlrath from Rise Against is featured on the track, and you’ve got a winner.
