Sunday afternoon means it’s time for the Record Rewind, highlighting the top new tracks that you might’ve missed during the work week, all from my favorite independent acts out there. If it’s on the site, it’s something that you need to check out!
GOLDEN COAST – “Make Ya Move” (iTunes) (Spotify)
It was hard selecting just one spotlight track from this duo’s self-titled EP, which was released a few days ago. Both “Comeback Kid” and “Recess” are former Rewind picks, and “Move” is bound to move up in streams and blog entries. You’ll bounce to this pop bop.
PATTERNIST – “When The Lights Turn Low” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Gabe Mouer, a musician based in Portland, OR, was featured on the Rewind three weeks ago with the title track from Give It Up, an EP he released on Friday. Shades of dance-pop and indie rock color this fun cut, making it (and the other songs) an enjoyable listen.
TYLER HILTON – “Next To You” (iTunes) (Spotify)
High school flashback! Signed to Maverick Records, this singer’s “When It Comes” and “How Love Should Be” were both hits on my chart, with “When” going to #5 just after Christmas in 2004. Hilton self-releases his music now, and the results are pretty fantastic.
YOUNG SUMMER – “Old Chunk Of Coal” (iTunes – n/a) (Spotify – n/a)
I said to myself one day recently, “Self, how have you survived without noting Young Summer on the Rewind in over a month?” As I struggled to find an answer, lo and behold, this John Anderson cover appeared. It’s a beautiful reinterpretation of a country classic.
