RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Twenty Six

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
KIM PETRAS – “Shinin'” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: 13th appearance

With the release of her newest album Clarity on Friday, this is probably the last appearance from Petras you’ll be seeing here on the Rewind for some time. That being said, this is really good album closer to what’s been an amazing (and sometimes unexpected) era.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
ADAM LAMBERT – “Comin In Hot”
DELACEY – “The Subway Song”
PARSON JAMES, WRABEL & VINCINT – “Oh Love”
