_____

LAUREN AQUILINA – “Psycho” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance
Notes: You could say we’re crazy over Aquilina’s first new song since 2016, but her pop banger is certainly a welcome addition here.

_____

PHANGS – “Bathroom Floor” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Seven previous appearances
Notes: Yes, he’s a regular here on the Rewind, but the new EP from this artist (titled N°1 Loves You) is another dreamy pop winner.

AARON TAOS – “Amazing” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: six previous appearances, “Twisted” (December 2017) being the most recent feature
Notes: Taos’s first of what will likely be plenty of 2018 singles to make PGTC’s report begins on a great note, with New Music Friday lists managed by Spotify’s Canada, Italy and the Netherlands affiliates adding it into the mix. Make sure to check out the cool video!

_____

LUKR – “Astronaut” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: four previous appearances, “The Future” (November 2017) being the most recent feature
Notes: Spotify’s New Music Friday playlists were also good to this Nashville performer, a frequent find on our Friday Faves and The New Nashville lists. On Friday, he found love from the Germany, Italy and Schweiz curators. In the pop blog galaxy, it’s flying high!

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 11/12 – 11/18/17

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…

_____

AARON TAOS featuring SHANE STOKES – “Alone” (Spotify)
I’ve been a fan of Taos’s tracks for just over two years now, with his tunes being featured on the Rewind and PGTC Spotify playlists. This year alone, my favorite releases from him include “Not Over Yet” and “Off My Mind”. His diverse musical palette shines again.

_____

ALY & AJ – “Promises” (Spotify)
With the release of their EP Ten Years this past Friday, the duo of sisters Alyson and Amanda Joy Michalka continue to impress the pop world with their comeback (which will hopefully include a full-length set next year!) This song is my favorite, a super retro bop.

_____

CHELSEA LANKES – “Matches” (Spotify)
You know that I support all my Nashville kings and queens, and that includes Lankes, though it’s been a moment since her last new music dropped. Back in the spring of 2016, I really enjoyed her self-titled EP. Her latest edgy pop winner is quite an addictive song!

_____

LAUV – “Paris In The Rain” (Spotify)
Pop keeps pouring down on us this week with the latest tune from Ari Leff’s ongoing playlist project titled I met you when I was 18. This one isn’t as instant as some of his past songs, a few of which have now been on the radio, but there’s a nice 70’s R&B influence.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
AIRPLANE MAN – “New Supplier” (SoundCloud)
BROADHURST – “Open Wide” (SoundCloud)
GHOST MACHINES – “We Bring The Fire” (SoundCloud)
JAMES DROLL – “Jacket Weather” (SoundCloud)
THE BEACH – “U.R. Beautiful” (SoundCloud)
VOKES – “Easy To Hate” (SoundCloud)
