RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 5/7 – 5/13/17

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…


AARON TAOS – “These Days” (iTunes) (Spotify)
It’s been nearly four months since Taos last appeared on the Rewind with “Off My Mind”, and this rocker marks a change in musical direction for the Brooklyn-based performer. Luckily, the edgier and guitar-laden indie track brings a great energy to Taos’s catalog.


PAPERWHITE – “Only Us” (iTunes) (Spotify)
If you’re a fan of the Rewind, you know that siblings Ben and Katie Marshall always come prepared with a good pop bop. Their new single is their third one to be featured in 2017, an exciting electronic-influenced dream pop sound with a strikingly lush production.


THØSS – “Work Is A Four Letter Word” (iTunes) (Spotify)
“Submarine” steered its way into the Rewind waters back in November, but the English artist first came onto my radar about a year ago with single “IWITW” and EP Benchwarmer. Some four letter words I’d use to describe his new song: “real”, “good” and “tune”.


WHISSELL – “Legs Crossed” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Did somebody ring the alarm? Hot song alert! This Nashville singer is no stranger to the Rewind and my blog playlists, with several cuts from her past EP getting the PGTC approval in 2016. Bringing the sass, slayage and spunk, this empowering pop anthem rules.


For more great new music, these tunes are worth a listen…
Floduxe featuring Kyle Reynolds – “That Would Be Nice” (SoundCloud)
Junior Prom – “Young Stunners” (SoundCloud)
