RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Five

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…


MAGDALENA BAY – “Money Lover” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Sixth appearance

The duo of Matthew Lewin and Mica Tenenbaum might love money, as their latest song title clearly suggests, but the two artists get some love from creating quality music as well. The angelic release and its music video, a nostalgic early 80’s-inspired clip, are solid.

MATT SIMONS – “Open Up” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fourth appearance

Written with Dan Romer, Emily Warren and Scott Harris, the same team behind Simons’s single “We Can Do Better”, the new song from his upcoming album After The Landslide (out April 5) has a charming radio-ready sound that’s perfect for the spring weather.

TAYLOR NOELLE – “End Of The Night” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance

Noelle might be a new name to the Rewind, but she’s been writing and performing for several years now. The Nashville performer’s latest single is a pop gem that stands out as one of the top new releases of the week. At the end of the night, we’re definitely hooked.


For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
GABBIE HANNA – “Medicate”
J. HUMAN – “Wish You Would”
KAT SAUL – “Middle Name”
STIRLING – “Let You Down”
VELLEV – “Imagine It”
