RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, April 15-21, 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…

_____

CONFETTI – “When I Grow Up” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: One previous mention, “People Suck” (February 2018)
Notes: Though not nearly as polarizing as their last release, the new song from this act is just as fun, touching on a universal theme.

_____

RYAN PULFORD – “Better Off Alone” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First time featured
Notes: Originally a SoundCloud discovery from a couple of years back, Pulford’s first release since 2016 is a super house music jam.

_____

ZAYDE WØLF – “Rule The World” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Three previous mentions, “Higher Than High” (October 2017) being the most recent entry
Notes: With another hit to howl about, that Wolf man returns with this anthemic and energetic release. (We’ll rate his record high.)

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
BAHARI – “Savage”
CRUISR – “Mind Eraser”
JOHNNY STIMSON – “End Of Time”
JON LEMMON – “Something True”
KATELYN TARVER – “LY4L”

Across the PGTC SoundCloud page and my playlists on Spotify, these stuck out as my favorite independent songs of the week…

_____

FRILLS – “She’s Got Love” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Two previous features, including “My Love” (April 2017)
Notes: The duo of Simon Oscroft and Dan Gibson have been steadily receiving their streaming love for roughly a year now, with the aforementioned “My Love” still in the lead across the major services. Still, their latest “Love” is very much worth the love and plays.

_____

MR GABRIEL – “Tambourine” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First time featured
Notes: This Nashville-based musician is probably best known for his time with the indie rock band Kopecky, who had some success at the Triple A format several years ago. If you’re a fan of psychedelic pop with a sync-ready hook, you’re sure to jam to this release!

_____

MATT SIMONS – “We Can Do Better” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First time featured
Notes: Previously signed to Republic Records here in the States, and now going the independent route via Kobalt’s AWAL program, the fun and brassy feel of this positive pop record has way too much potential to go unnoticed here. It’s at #40 on my current chart!

_____

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, March 18-24, 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…

_____

7CHARIOT – “Danger In Me” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Previously featured as Clairity; first time featured under new project
Notes: Though I do miss her Clairity project from several years ago, including pop bops like “Velcro”, the new tune from 7Chariot is worth a chariot ride (or seven) over to your streaming service of choice. “Danger” isn’t dangerous at all, with its cool tropical sound.

_____

BEN HOBBS – “Simple Life” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Five previous appearances, “Two Pieces” (February 2018) being the most recent feature
Notes: The London-based performer, who frequently makes the Rewind, issued a double a-side single on Friday, featuring the song noted here and “Blind To You”. Both tracks are quality for different reasons, but this new wave-influenced cut really caught my ear.

_____

MARC SCIBILIA – “Over You” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Three previous appearances, including “Believer” (July 2016) and “Summer Clothes” (February 2017)
Notes: Scibilia’s been slaying the independent game for several years now, picking up several million streams in the process, as well as a massive hit in parts of Europe with DJ/producer Robin Schulz. His latest track sounds like a future hit on the Hot AC airwaves.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
FINNEAS – “Heaven”
GRIZFOLK – “Endless Summer”
RUTHANNE – “The Vow”

_____

EMILY BURNS – “Girlfriend At The Time” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First time featured
Notes: Burns is known to both the SoundCloud and Spotify crowd, with thousands of streams for tracks like “Bitch” and “Take It Or Leave It”. Ahead of her Seven Scenes From The Same Summer set, due in July, this new release is a pop lover’s dream. Very catchy!

_____

THE DRIVER ERA – “Preacher Man” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First time featured
Notes: If you were a fan of the pop group R5, who recorded for Hollywood Records, then you already know Ross and Rocky Lynch’s current project, whose track climbed into top 100 on iTunes during its release day. Your pop prayers have certainly been answered!

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…

_____

BETTY WHO – “Look Back” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: one previous appearance, “Ignore Me” (January 2018); previously signed to RCA Records
Notes: Yes, I know that there’s a certain irony in featuring a track called “Look Back” on a weekend when the U.S. has sprung ahead one hour. However, just as much as “Ignore Me” was a bop, “Look” is an incredibly catchy and delectable piece of pop. Sweet times!

_____

SPAZZ CARDIGAN – “Episode” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First time featured
Notes: This performer has fallen onto my radar through some mutual friends in Nashville, not to mention his song’s prominent add on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist. The production on this R&B-flavored track is tight, and a clever lyric definitely doesn’t hurt.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
FLETCHER – “I Believe You”
WANDERER – “Miss You More At Night”
