RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 11/6 – 11/12

Record Rewind - November 13, 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…

_____

JEREMY THURBER – “Find You In The Dark” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Thurber, a Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter, is a new name for me. However, he seems eager to get some music out there. After the release of his Deliverance EP in August, this is his new song, which should appeal to fans of Jon Bellion and Troye Sivan.

_____

KATELYN TARVER – “Hate To Tell You” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Tarver’s previous two singles, a cover of Jeremih’s “Planez” and original song “What Do We Know Now”, were featured in Rewind posts during the late summer. Though “Weekend Millionaires” remains her most successful single, her new one has a great sound.

_____

MARTIN LUKE BROWN – “Shadow & Light” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Once in the major label system, and now doing it on his own, London singer Brown delivers a poignant pop anthem that’s certainly a fitting one, given the political events of last week. Heavy on an acoustic arrangement and gospel influence, it’s a pleasant release.

PASSPORT TO STOCKHOLM – “Shooting Stars” (iTunes) (Spotify)
This London trio has been on my radar for over a year now, and their last single was a great folk/pop track called “Better Days”. In their latest release, they go for more anthemic indie rock, which isn’t a bad thing. That chorus could be giant when performed live!

For more great new music, these tunes are worth a listen…
PAPER PILOTS – “Automatic” (SoundCloud)
ROYAL TEETH – “Only You” (SoundCloud)
