RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 8/14 – 8/20

Record Rewind - August 21, 2016

Our new Record Rewind is about highlighting the top new songs that you may have missed, or should discover, from many of my favorite independent acts out there. If you like what you see, let me know what you think!

Across the PGTC SoundCloud page and my playlists on Spotify, these stuck out as my favorite independent songs of the week…


BRUNO MAJOR – “Wouldn’t Mean A Thing” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Major’s delightfully retro-tinged ballad got some, well, major looks on iTunes and Spotify upon its wide release a few days ago. I think it’ll continue to grow nicely. Though it isn’t his first release to date, it’s certainly an exciting moment for the London singer.


CASTLECOMER – “Judy” (iTunes) (Spotify)
I’ve reposted a number of songs from this Australia quintet in the past; my favorites include “Fire Alarm” and “The Noise”. Their latest single is another indie rock gem with a catchy chorus. It may even have sync potential down the line. So, get to rocking out!


CHRIS JAMISON – “Truth” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Jamison was a finalist on The Voice in the fall of 2014, and his super soulful EP I Am Chris Jamison is a smooth reminder of that great artistry he showcased on the program. “Better Man” is on the radio in his hometown, but the production on “Truth” is hot.


KATELYN TARVER – “Planez” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Last year, Tarver achieved a notable SoundCloud breakout with cuts like “Nobody Like You” and “Weekend Millionaires”. You’ll find that the latter hit had a proper digital release earlier this summer. Her new cover song soars high into the pop stratosphere.


KEVIN GARRETT – “Precious” (iTunes) (Spotify)
It’s no secret that Garrett has jams for days, and the New York performer, who defines his sound as “odd soul”, has another tune to make you swoon. Exquisitely executed, this release has a great hook and solid build that pulls you in. I can’t wait to hear more.


For more new music, these tunes are worth a listen…
HUDSON SCOTT – “Get Down” (SoundCloud)
TIM ATLAS – “The Other Side” (SoundCloud)
WAVE & ROME – “Strangers (Acoustic)” (SoundCloud)
