RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Fifteen

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
FLY BY MIDNIGHT – “Waiting Tables” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Eighth appearance

There’s definitely two seats at the table for these guys; I’ve been feasting on their releases for some time now, so the waiting period wasn’t long for this winner to arrive. The mellow retro-tinged pop single combines enough modern elements for a successful result.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
HANNAH JANE LEWIS – “Not Yours Never Was” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fifth appearance

Following the release of the Rewind-approved cuts “Do It Without You” and “Last Night Every Night”, Lewis’s latest song is an easy add to the list, which is featured on her new self-titled EP. With so many great pop records in her catalog, she’ll continue to do well.

PICK OF THE WEEK: THREE
OVERSTREET – “All Nighter” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance

During the summer of 2017, Overstreet climbed as high as #14 on my personal chart with “Hold On”, though I enjoyed the majority of his songs during a stint with Island Records. Leaning towards a darker rock feel, this one could find support at Alternative radio.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
ALEC BAILEY – “Roseanne”
EBEN – “You The One”
HARRISON WHEELER featuring MARSHALL MAGIC – “Up All Night”
HUX – “Wreck”
JOHAN – “Fifteen”
MISS BENNY – “Every Boy”
MYZICA – “Can’t Come Back”
VIOLET DAYS – “Afterparty”

RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Fourteen

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
COREY HARPER – “Don’t Hate Me” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance

Starting things off this week, we have the first appearance by a Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter that’s been releasing music for several years. This cut was co-written by two blog friends, Donovan Woods and Todd Clark, and it sounds like a future radio hit.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
MATT SIMONS featuring BETTY WHO – “Dust” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fifth appearance / Eighth appearance

Though both Simons and Who are no longer in the major label system, they sure are making some great music together. This single from the former’s album After The Landslide, released last Friday, is a super soft pop collaboration that should continue to do well.

PICK OF THE WEEK: THREE
WRABEL – “Love To Love U” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Third appearance

Two weeks ago, this performer’s new version of a prior single (“I Want You”) was one of the top picks on that edition of the Rewind. So, it’s not a surprise to see him back on here so soon with another original track, a soulful pop cut that showcases his many talents.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
ASTN – “Tidal Wave”
JOHNNY STIMSON – “Flower”
OMAR APOLLO – “Friends”
SPENCER BARNETT – “Suicide Note”
VINCINT – “Please Don’t Fall In Love”
ZAYDE WØLF – “Cold-Blooded”

RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Thirteen

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
CAPPA – “I Do” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Seventh appearance

It’s been about four months since this artist last appeared on the Rewind with her song “Sux”, and her latest track definitely doesn’t suck whatsoever. Written with Aaron Blackmar, the lighter pop tune has a pleasant melody, while still preserving a playful attitude.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
JESSE SAINT JOHN – “Crying” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fifth appearance

Released as a part of a two-track single with an updated version of his former Rewind pick “What Do U Like”, you might need some tissues (sold seperately) when you check this cut out for the first time. The retro-tinged electronic sound finds just the right groove.

(no video available as of 3/31)

PICK OF THE WEEK: THREE
SVRCINA – “All I Wanna Do” (iTunes)
Previously on the Rewind: Ninth appearance

From “I Do” to “All I Wanna Do”, the latest Rewind entry for this Nashville performer may not be a hot Sheryl Crow cover, but it’s a pretty catchy single in its own right. Co-written with Ben Eggebrecht and Michael McEachern, it’s another super add to her catalog.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
CUBBI – “Buzzkill”
DANIELLA MASON – “Deepest Of Wells”
EBEN – “Nights Like This”
GABRIELLE APLIN – “Nothing Really Matters”
JOEL ADAMS – “Coffee”
LAUREN AQUILINA – “Tobacco In My Sheets”
RENCE – “Ways To Go”

RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Twelve

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
BRUNS – “Never Go Back” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance

If you remember the Colorado quintet Churchill, best known for their top five Triple A radio tune “Change”, then you might like the new single from former member Tim Bruns and his duo. One of their poppier efforts to date, the track is a pretty catchy spring jam.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
HEARTS & COLORS – “Lion” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance

Previously signed to Casablanca Records in the U.S. and now headed down the independent route, the new cut by this Swedish duo roars into the zoo that we know as Rewind. Breezing through a lighter tropical pop single, this act’s catalog remains just as colorful.

PICK OF THE WEEK: THREE
THE NGHBRS – “Almost There” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance

We’re sure the nghbrhd won’t mind if you bump the current single from Griffin Oskar and Ryan Dominic, who previously appeared on the Rewind with a cut called “All Or Nothing” last June. With a catchy and bright pop sound, it’s like I loved them all over again!

PICK OF THE WEEK: FOUR
WRABEL – “I Want You” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance

Over the last few years, this talented singer/songwriter has been signed with the Island Def Jam Music Group and Epic Records. At the latter, he managed to score a #1 song on my personal chart, 2016’s “11 Blocks”. This remixed version of an old cut is a good one!

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
ADAM MELCHOR – “Means To A Mend”
KEVIN GARRETT – “Smoke”
MOONTOWER – “Lay With Me”
STEFAN ALEXANDER – “Don’t Speak”

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
ALEC BAILEY – “Lemonade” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance

Back in January, this performer’s past single “Grip” had its grip on that week’s edition of the Rewind. Now, his tangy new title gives Bailey another refreshing highlight to add to his collection of cool pop tunes. Stir it all together and you’ve got a talented rising star.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
GREYSON CHANCE – “Seasons Nineteen” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Seventh appearance

On a slow week in music, Chance’s new album Portraits is one of the top sets from Friday. Several titles from the project have been mentioned on the Rewind during the past few weeks, including “Shut Up” and “Timekeeper”. It’s the season(s) for taking a Chance!

RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Ten

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
BRUCE WIEGNER – “IDK” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance

Wiegner makes the Rewind for the first time, though he first came onto my radar a few months back with a solid track titled “Better Off This Way” (as The Weekend Riot) and co-writes for acts like Annalia and Gatsby. IDK what you think, but I’m enjoying this cut.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
KYAN PALMER & NICOPOP. featuring YURI JONESS – “Antisocial Socialites” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Third appearance, second appearance, first appearance

Of the three artists combining their talents for this single, Palmer returns to the Rewind with his first track since “Pretend That You Love Me” from last September, one of the great cuts from on his set Burn Mona Lisa. This collaboration is a groovy throwback jam.

PICK OF THE WEEK: THREE
LO LO – “Sweater Collection” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance

The Canadian soloist that gave us the great pop bop “Convenient” last year, as well as the minor radio hit “Yours” up north, gets her second appearance on the Rewind with a fashionable single that’s just the right fit. The sound is familiar, but it’s irresistibly catchy!

_____

ADAM MELCHOR – “Plan On You”
DENNY WHITE – “Like It Was”
GREYSON CHANCE – “Timekeeper”

_____

PICK OF THE WEEK: ONE
EMILY BURNS – “Too Cool” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance

If I said I wasn’t a big fan of Burns’s latest track, then I would be a, ahem, damn good liar. (Not really.) The follow-up to that bop is also good and comes with a fun and colorful video too. Co-written by a PGTC alum, Martin Luke Brown, this release is cool with us.
