RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, February 4-10, 2018

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…


BAHARI – “F**ked Up” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: none; Bahari was previously signed to an imprint of Interscope Records
Notes: The trio of Ruby Carr, Natalia Panzarella and Sidney Sartini peaked at #10 on my chart in 2016 with a great psychedelic pop track called “Dancing On The Sun”. (It just missed the top 50 on the pop radio chart.) The darker update to their sound works well.


FINNEAS – “Break My Heart Again” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: “I’m In Love With You” (September 2017) was noted as an extra
Notes: Known for his role during the sixth season of Glee, credited as Finneas O’Connell, this performer is also the older brother of Darkroom/Interscope artist Billie Eilish, whom he also works with. “Break” is a beautiful piano-pop ballad that really strikes deep.


JESSE SAINT JOHN – “Move” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: none; debut artist single
Notes: John has written for and/or with plenty of top artists in the last year, including album cuts and stand-alone singles for Andy Grammer, Camila Cabello, Lauv and more. “Move” does, well, just that: makes you want to get up and shake to his intense pop cut.


For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
CHELSEA CUTLER – “You’re Not Missing Me” (SoundCloud)
CHELSEA LANKES – “Easy” (SoundCloud)
DONOVAN WOODS – “Burn The Bridge” (SoundCloud)
TIM HALPERIN – “Weightless” (SoundCloud)
YOUNGBLOOD HAWKE – “Trust” (SoundCloud)
