RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Three

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
ALEC BAILEY – “Grip” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance

Former Vine star Bailey is earning some praise for his second original song, the follow-up to “Callin'” from October of last year. The 22-year-old performer has a fairly big fan base from his years of covering and creating music, so watch out for his upcoming tracks.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
LAUREN AQUILINA – “If Looks Could Kill” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance

Aquilina’s prior appearance on the weekly post came back in September with her release called “Psycho”. This week, not only is her latest solo cut out, but she also appears on “FU4E”, an EP cut by the duo Los Kings. Both tracks are quality additions to her catalog.

PICK OF THE WEEK: THREE
MISS BENNY – “Rendezvous” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance

Actor and social media star Ben J. Pierce previously released songs under the artist name Benny, but as Miss Benny, he’s looking to take things to the next level. With a fierce sound that’s catchy and confident, 2019 should be a great year for the teenage performer.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
AARON TAOS featuring KHARY – “Is It Anything?”
DELANEY JANE & SHAUN FRANK – “Throwback”
DES ROCS – “Outta My Mind”
ELLA VOS – “Temporary”
HANNAH GRACE – “With You”
MYYLO – “Jonesing”
VICETONE featuring MATT WERTZ – “Fences”
VIOLET SKIES – “Is She Gonna Be There?”
YAEGER – “You Like Me”

_____

DELANEY JANE – “Psycho” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance
Notes: Coming off the radio hit “Bad Habits” up north, CanCon queen Jane and her new pop tune should be a winner on the charts.

_____

JT ROACH – “Shivers” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance
Notes: He’s written for plenty of pop chart favorites, but Roach’s latest song as an artist sounds like it could go the distance in 2019.

BRIGETTA – “Sick”
EDEN XO – “Dirty Blonde”
