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!
MAGDALENA BAY – “Waking Up” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: “Neon” (January), “Set Me Off” (April) and “Move Slow” (August) were all featured
Notes: It’s the first release of the year for duo Matthew Lewin and Mica Tenenbaum, who certainly know how to create a hooky and super fun 80’s-inspired gem. By the way, if you love their track “Neon” like I do, go and send someone a VinylPost and play it loud!
VOKES – “Potential” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: “Backroad” (July 2016), “Wrong” (August 2016), “Screens” (October) were all featured; “Easy To Hate” (November) was noted
Notes: Dare I say that this has the potential to be my favorite single of theirs from their latest era? Well, besides the bad puns, it’s a great electropop meets alternative cut from the Los Angeles band, who I’m sure will return to the Rewind many times later in 2018.
For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
JOHNNY STIMSON – “Rocket” (SoundCloud)
