RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 9/10 – 9/16/17

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 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…

_____

COURTSHIP. – “Tell Me Tell Me” (Spotify)
This Los Angeles group last appeared on the Rewind in June with “Perfect People”, which was featured in late August in Entercom’s new artist integration program for the Alternative radio format, 7×7. Their newest upload is a catchy catchy piece of retro retro pop.

_____

KENZIE NIMMO – “Bones” (Spotify)
This is Nimmo’s first single to be featured on the Rewind, though she was a part of an April 2015 post about several contestants in a competition to open iHeartMedia’s annual Festival in Las Vegas. That soft pop sound is a winner for me, as well as that lovely voice.

_____

MARTIN LUKE BROWN – “Opalite” (Spotify)
This singer’s “Into Yellow”, released in June, was his most recent entry to be spotlighted on the Rewind. The tune recently crossed a million streams on Spotify. As always, Brown sounds great, as he tries to experiment with layered arrangements and bigger sounds.

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
LEO KALYAN – “Temptation” (SoundCloud)
UNION MOON – “Build A Fire After Dark” (SoundCloud)
VÉRITÉ – “Saint (Tigertown Remix)” (SoundCloud)

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 9/3 – 9/9/17

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 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…

_____

CAPE CUB – “Flowers” (iTunes) (Spotify)
It feels like we’ve been waiting forever for the return of Chad Male and Cape Cub, with his most recent tunes dropping in November of last year on an EP called 6am. With “Flowers” firmly in bloom, the radio potential on this electropop release is certainly growing.

_____

MATT WOODS – “Craving” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Serving vocals and giving me life once more, Woods’s second single from his forthcoming EP, and the follow-up to “Nervous”, has a way of pulling you in and sticking around in your brain. He effortlessly glides through this smooth neo soul single. It is really lovely.

_____

UNION MOON – “Red Bow” (iTunes) (Spotify)
This is the first time on the Rewind for Union Moon, though his pack of three singles to date is pretty good. If you know the work of The Fray, then you may already be aware that this is member Joe King’s solo effort. “Red” is a solid pick for an early morning listen.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
DANIELLA MASON – “Cover The Earth” (SoundCloud)
FINNEAS – “I’m In Love Without You” (SoundCloud)
LELAND featuring ALLIE X – “Mattress (Valley Girl Remix)” (SoundCloud)

_____

BRUNO MAJOR – “On Our Own” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Yes, we might be shedding a tear or two for the finale of Major’s A Song For Every Moon project, but it’s been a very nice project to watch unfold. The delicate single is emotional, with Major at his best vocally, combined with a dramatic arrangement. It’s a winner.

_____

TIPLING ROCK – “Love Without A Reason” (iTunes) (Spotify)
These four schoolmates from Boston are usually teaching us about the philosophies of psychedelic pop, but this month, the lesson’s in acoustic pop done right. “Love” showcases a cool new side to the band, as they pull off mellow music with ease. It’s an easy listen.

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 8/13 – 8/19/17

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 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…

_____

ALY & AJ – “Take Me” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Returning to their original name for the first time since 2009, sisters Alyson and Amanda Joy Michalka left the pop world shook on Friday with the release of their new track. The 80’s synth-pop influence is real on this top tune, which makes it all the more lovable.

_____

BONNIE MCKEE – “Thorns” (iTunes) (Spotify)
She’s a super singer/songwriter with a little PGTC history: her “Stars In Your Heart” was noted in the Rewind from the week before Christmas, while “Somebody” and “American Girl” have both hit my chart. The prickly pop single is deliciously dark and intriguing.

_____

DANIELLA MASON – “Cruel Summer” (iTunes) (Spotify)
I would be the one to scream “Hot Bananarama remake!” upon seeing the title of this next track, but it’s not actually a cover. Mason has already been noted twice on the Rewind this summer, and her irresistible pop gem will shimmy its way onto your latest playlist.

_____

TYLER HILTON – “Overtime” (iTunes) (Spotify)
One of the great albums from my freshman year of high school was Hilton’s The Tracks Of set, and I’m happy to report that I’m still digging his music 13 years later. The bluesy pop/rock cut is definitely a winner, showcasing all that’s made him great over the years.

_____

BIEN – “Electric Dream” (SoundCloud)
STALGIA – “Talk To My Skin” (SoundCloud)

_____

CARLIE HANSON – “Why Did You Lie?” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Hanson is a new name for me, but I’m hoping that she’ll be around for a long time. “Lie” is one of the best pop debuts of the year so far, and that’s the truth! The undeniably catchy single should’ve been on the radio yesterday, but I’m sure it’ll get there pretty soon.

_____

MATT WOODS – “Nervous” (iTunes) (Spotify)
You know I love Woods’s exquisite and emotive voice, the one that first captured my attention back in January 2015 with single “In The Dark”. “Nervous” leads the forthcoming EP from the London-based performer, which should be another excellent set of songs.

_____

JAMES DROLL – “Bad For You” (iTunes) (Spotify)
After all the Nashville love last week, I had to spread a little this week as well. Enter Droll, who I’ve enjoyed a few tracks from in the last year, including “Off Beat” and “Sleepwalker”. “Bad” is, well, pretty good, as its future R&B sound sizzles through your speakers.

_____

LOSTBOYCROW – “Missing London” (iTunes) (Spotify)
This Los Angeles-based performer has been featured on the Rewind (and my playlists) for some time now, with the track “Spin The Globe” getting a brief mention last month. The guitar-driven “London” is a pleasant pop track, one that’s sure to appeal to his base.
