RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 1/14-20/18

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 small label and 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…


BETTY WHO – “Ignore Me” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: none; previously signed to RCA Records
Notes: Who may now be an independent artist, but she certainly doesn’t miss a beat. In fact, “Ignore Me” wasn’t ignored at all a few days ago, when it was added on several of Spotify’s New Music Friday lists, and the lead position on the PGTC Friday Faves playlist.


JOHNNY STIMSON – “Wild World” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: “Time Machine” (March) had a prominent feature and “Honeymoon” (June) was noted as an additional pick
Notes: Stimson knows how to get my attention with a great stripped-down release. He says he wrote this single to realize “that even though the world is dark sometimes”, he should “stop and notice the beautiful things” within his world. It’s truly an authentic tune.


For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
LOSTBOYCROW – “I’m A Sailor Not A Salesman” (SoundCloud)
SAM FISCHER – “This City” (SoundCloud)
SUPER DUPER – “Far From Falling” (SoundCloud)
THE SHANTICS – “Mind Pop” (SoundCloud)
