RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 1/8 – 1/14/17

Record Rewind - January 15, 2017

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!

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

_____

FLORIO – “Wait” (iTunes) (Spotify)
New York (formerly Boston) performer Dominic Florio has received some love from our SoundCloud feed in the past, but based on the recent relaunch of his project, it looks like he wants to start anew. Well, at least this chapter begins with a synth-driven pop jam.

_____

MAGDALENA BAY – “Neon” (iTunes) (Spotify)
The duo of Matthew Lewin and Mica Tenenbaum is a new name on the blog, though Lewin plays in a group that I featured in several Rewind posts last year, Tipling Rock. The twosome bottles the magic of 80’s pop nostalgia in just over two minutes and 30 seconds.

_____

PHANGS – “One & Lonely” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Last year, Nashville’s Jake Germany went solo with the track “Cul De Sac”, which landed on both notable blogs and playlists. It’s out now in a stripped version, which is just as cool as the original, but his newest tune really stands out for some great production work.

_____

VÉRITÉ – “Phase Me Out” (iTunes) (Spotify)
This New York City singer has been counting up her millions of Spotify streams lately, thanks in part to strong playlist support for a cover of The 1975’s “Somebody Else”. Back to originals, “Phase” has a great lead vocal, and feels like it could do really well as a sync.

For more great new music, these tunes are worth a listen…
FLAGSHIP – “Mexican Jackpot” (SoundCloud)
GRETA ISAAC – “Intro (Creatures Of Habit)” (SoundCloud)
MATING RITUAL featuring LIZZY LAND – “Night Lies” (SoundCloud)
TEAMMATE – “Damage” (SoundCloud)
