RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 7/9 – 7/15/17

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 – “Not Over Yet” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Taos is certainly making his mark on the Rewind this year, having previously been featured with a pair of top tracks: “Off My Mind” in January and “These Days” in May. As the title says, his days of my enjoying his tunes are not over yet, as he releases another bop.

_____

JOHN SPLITHOFF featuring MADISON RYANN WARD – “Show Me” (iTunes) (Spotify)
It’s been over a year since Splithoff released his last new single, the smooth and delectable “Sing To You”, which has now achieved a super impressive 20 million streams on Spotify. This R&B-influenced pop collaboration steers him in a fresh, but lovable, direction.

_____

ZAYDE WØLF – “Brave” (iTunes) (Spotify)
This Nashville singer and songwriter last appeared on the Rewind about a year ago, but several tracks from 2016’s Golden Age were featured on PGTC’s Spotify playlists. The anthemic pop cut has a nice hook and some cool builds in production. It’s a winner to me!

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
ANDREW BELLE – “Honey And Milk” (SoundCloud)
TRENTON – “In The Summer Light” (SoundCloud)

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 5/7 – 5/13/17

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 – “These Days” (iTunes) (Spotify)
It’s been nearly four months since Taos last appeared on the Rewind with “Off My Mind”, and this rocker marks a change in musical direction for the Brooklyn-based performer. Luckily, the edgier and guitar-laden indie track brings a great energy to Taos’s catalog.


_____

PAPERWHITE – “Only Us” (iTunes) (Spotify)
If you’re a fan of the Rewind, you know that siblings Ben and Katie Marshall always come prepared with a good pop bop. Their new single is their third one to be featured in 2017, an exciting electronic-influenced dream pop sound with a strikingly lush production.

_____

THØSS – “Work Is A Four Letter Word” (iTunes) (Spotify)
“Submarine” steered its way into the Rewind waters back in November, but the English artist first came onto my radar about a year ago with single “IWITW” and EP Benchwarmer. Some four letter words I’d use to describe his new song: “real”, “good” and “tune”.

_____

WHISSELL – “Legs Crossed” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Did somebody ring the alarm? Hot song alert! This Nashville singer is no stranger to the Rewind and my blog playlists, with several cuts from her past EP getting the PGTC approval in 2016. Bringing the sass, slayage and spunk, this empowering pop anthem rules.

For more great new music, these tunes are worth a listen…
Floduxe featuring Kyle Reynolds – “That Would Be Nice” (SoundCloud)
Junior Prom – “Young Stunners” (SoundCloud)

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 1/22 – 1/28/17

Record Rewind - January 29, 2017

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 – “Off My Mind” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Taos came onto my radar back in the fall of 2015 with songs like “Hands” and “Simple & Sober”, which got some repost action on my SoundCloud feed. His more pop-driven delivery, while still maintaining the usual indie sensibilities, makes for one enjoyable single.

_____

KEVIN GARRETT – “Little Bit Of You” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Well, what do you know? Two weeks in a row, two songs from Garrett. With an EP due next week, titled False Hope, it is a true hope that he delivers with, what I think will be, another excellent set of tracks. That lush vocal and smooth arrangement are just heavenly.

_____

KNGDAVD – “Medicine” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Something told us we needed a prescription for a little pop power this week, and now we’re just itching to get a refill. This New York act continues to impress me, but you already knew that from my support of “Poppies” and “Say My Name” last year. It’s a good one.

_____

RUSS MACKLIN featuring KYLE REYNOLDS – “Natural” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Macklin is a new name on the Rewind, but Reynolds was last on here about four months ago with a sync song called “Alive”. If you’re familiar with that tune, he takes a bit of a musical leap here. Luckily, both Macklin and Reynolds put in some super work on this jam.

For more great new music, these tunes are worth a listen…
Cody Lavaas – “Lie” (SoundCloud)
Jeffrey James – “Hand Grenade” (SoundCloud)
Jenna Kyle – “Dust” (SoundCloud)
Satellite Mode – “Secrets” (SoundCloud)
Smith & Thell – “February” (SoundCloud)
Tom Speight – “Willow Tree” (SoundCloud)
