Behold! It's the Mercury's February playlist, a collection of songs from local artists releasing new music and touring acts headed to Portland this month.

It might be the most miserable time of year, but there's plenty to look forward to over the next few weeks: Y La Bamba is performing at Revolution Hall to celebrate the release of their excellent new record Mujeres. The Last Artful, Dodgr is playing two hometown shows at Doug Fir (one that's all-ages and a later set for the 21+ contingent). Plus, Motown legend Smokey Robinson is coming to town on Valentine's Day, as is Australian crooner Alex Cameron and his trusty saxophonist/business partner Roy Molloy.
