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…
_____

PICK OF THE WEEK: ONE
JAKE SCOTT – “Like No One Does” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fourth appearance

Singer and songwriter Scott continues a year-long musical journey with his third release of 2020 and the fourth to make the weekly Rewind, which also included a duet with singer Brigetta. The rhythmic pop song is another good chapter in this already great cycle.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
STELA COLE – “Love Like Mine” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance

Yes, the woman of the hour is extending her hours on the Rewind, so you can take three minutes and eight seconds to stop and bop to her second song of 2020. Co-written with Gigi Grombacher and producer Nicki Adamsson, the tune is bold, hooky and a winner.

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
ANSON SEABRA – “Can You Hear Me”
LIZ HUETT – “Far Away From Here”

While we’re craving a nice pasta dish from a fancy restaurant while self-isolating, the new song called “Pasta” is certainly filling too, as this young male group continues to build a passionate fan base with their charm and quality tunes. Our compliments to the chef!
