Across the PGTC SoundCloud page and my playlists on Spotify, these stuck out as my favorite independent songs of the week…

_____

BLAKE ROSE – “Hotel Room” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance
Notes: Known for a few dance and electronic collaborations, Australia’s Rose and his edgy pop release are certainly winners for me.

_____

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, May 27 – June 2, 2018

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 independe2nt songs of the week…

_____

EMILY WARREN – “Paranoid” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Two previous appearances, most recently “Something To Hold On To” (July 2017)
Notes: We try not to let the pop paranoia sink in, though we suspect this song is a winner. Warren’s solo releases continue to shine!

_____

LAUV – “Enemies” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Ten previous appearances, most recently “Bracelet” (May 2018)
Notes: You know, we haven’t seen Lauv on the Rewind in… oh, a week! With his playlist era completed, this new tune is a highlight.

_____

LIV MIRALDI – “Dilemma” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance
Notes: Miraldi’s great remake of this massive single from 2002 takes a modern-day R&B classic and turns it into a sugary pop rush.

_____

PRETTY SISTER featuring WHITE GOLD – “Tension” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Two previous appearances, most recently “Thirsty” (November 2016) / First appearance
Notes: No sibling rivalry here! Zak Waters’s first cut in over a year is, by far, the filthiest and funkiest jam in the bunch this Sunday.

_____

R3HAB x QUINN LEWIS – “How You’ve Been” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance / Four previous appearances, most recently “Weekend Luv” (April 2018)
Notes: When PGTC favorite Lewis teams up with one of the hottest DJs/producers around, you know it’s going to be one giant bop!

_____

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)

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 7/3 – 7/9

Record Rewind - July 10, 2016

Our new Record Rewind is about highlighting the top new songs that you may have missed, or should discover, from many of my favorite independent acts out there. If you like what you see, let me know what you think!

Across the world of SoundCloud and my Indie Summer Mix on Spotify, these records stuck out as my favorite independent tunes of the week…

_____

BRIGHT LIGHT BRIGHT LIGHT featuring ELTON JOHN – “Symmetry Of Two Hearts” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Next week marks the release of Rod Thomas’s latest album, Choreography, and based on the instant grat tracks so far, I think I’ll be enjoying it thoroughly. If you need a dose of 1987 in 2016, his intelligent and unabashedly bold pop melodies are a great treat.

_____

ELLE WATSON – “Phantom” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Watson last appeared on the blogs a couple of months ago; that’s when “Losing Any Sleep” debuted, a track that’s now achieved a massive 550,000+ streams on Spotify. Tapping into an ethereal R&B-flavored world, the haunting results are worth a few plays.

_____

GIRL FRIEND – “Hello Stranger”
This Manchester band has been a regular on my SoundCloud feed for about a year now, crafting great singles like “Tragic On The Dancefloor” and “Waste My Time”. Their latest gem, mixed by Louis La Roche, should be no stranger to your new music playlist.

_____

GRAHAM COLTON with EMILY HEARN – “Where You Wanna Go” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Colton’s had two big top five singles on my personal chart, including the #1 hit “Best Days” in 2008, so I’m always happy to find a new song from him. Collaborating with Hearn, their catchy folk/pop record is great for any road trip playlist this summer or fall.

_____

MYZICA – “Love & Desire” (iTunes) (Spotify)
The Nashville duo, consisting of Isaaca Byrd and Micah Tawlks, strikes again with a delicious bright pop record. It’s the first taste of their forthcoming album, due in September. Driven by synth and drums, “Love” effortlessly captures a youthful 80’s memory.

_____

SAM TINNESZ featuring MAGIC MANSIONS – “Doesn’t Get Better Than This”
Tinnesz has been busy with two different projects in the last year, one being WΛVE & ROME and the other under his given name. In either case, many of his songs have been on TV recently, so expect this potent punch of rock realness in your living room soon.

_____

VINYL THIEF – “Letting Me Off Easy” (iTunes) (Spotify)
The Touch EP from this Nashville quartet was finally released on Friday. They’ve served up some hot cuts from the set in the last few weeks, and the last track from it, a dark fusion of electronic and indie rock, is among my favorites. It easily gets my approval.

_____

X&Y – “Footprints”
Last summer, I found this U.K.-based trio’s song “Rocket Science” on SoundCloud, but this may be their best single to date. Both their writing and production have unleashed a fresh energy and bigger sound for this track. Dig into it (your ears, not your toes.)


_____

For more new music, we suggest…
ALLIE X – “All The Rage” (iTunes) (Spotify)
APOLLO LTD – “Goodbye” (SoundCloud)
WILD – “Where Love Lives” (iTunes) (Spotify)
