RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 9/25 – 10/1

Record Rewind - October 2, 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 – “There’s Little Left” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Major really impressed me with his last single, “Wouldn’t Change A Thing”, which spread across the blogs shortly after its release in August. Don’t let the title fool you; there’s certainly more left from this budding performer and his neo soul cut. It’s refreshing.


CAPE CUB – “Lifeline” (iTunes) (Spotify)
If you don’t know Chad Male’s great project by now, I’ve only written and posted my love for it about a million times. So, would it be alright if I make it a million and one? With another cut from his upcoming 6AM EP, it’s another winner for the indie rock crew.


KYLE REYNOLDS – “Alive” (iTunes) (Spotify)
A little under two years ago, this California singer/songwriter pitched me his EP at the time, Simple Things. Driven by streams of “Miles On My Heart”, it’s done 775,000+ combined plays to date on Spotify. He has a catchy sync song now, and lots of potential.


TIPLING ROCK – “Campus Fashion” (iTunes) (Spotify)
If you detest back-to-school season, or all those midterms coming your way, chances are that you can at least enjoy this A+ single. It comes from a Boston quartet that I’ve enjoyed for some time now, making psychedelic pop sound pretty groovy in 2016. Dig in.


WHISSELL – “Pain Of Love” (iTunes) (Spotify)
It’s always excellent to get a new single from Nashville’s Lauren Whistle, who combines the 60’s soul and grit of Dusty Springfield and Nancy Sinatra with 90’s Alternative girls like Fiona Apple and Tori Amos. You’ll feel pleasure over “Pain” after listening to it.


For more great new music, these tunes are worth a listen…
JAMES CHERRY – “Break Somebody” (SoundCloud)
KING DECO – “Ready My Lips” (SoundCloud)
ROMA – “Missing Out” (SoundCloud)
SILENT CROWD – “Candy” (SoundCloud)
