RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 6/25 – 7/1/17

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…

_____

FJØRA – “Wild Animals” (iTunes) (Spotify)
This female newcomer was first spotted late last year on our listen through the annual Nashville Indie Spotlight sampler, which has a lot of talent for one set. “Wild” glides its way through the Top 40 landscape, delivering a fun and familiar sound in the blog world.

_____

MYZICA – “Higher Places” (iTunes) (Spotify)
This Nashville duo (Isaaca Byrd and Micah Tawlks) was last noted on the Rewind in August of last year with an Ezra Carey-assisted cover of “Drive”, one of my favorite hits from The Cars. “Higher” brings out the enchanting nostalgia of mid-to-late 90’s alternative.

_____

TIPLING ROCK – “Staring” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Summer sounds so good, now that our favorite Boston college band is back with another psychedelic pop gem for your current pool party playlist. The beachy feel of this guitar-driven track is effortless, and consistent with their catalog thus far. Jump in and enjoy!

_____

WANDERER – “We Were So Young” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Wandering back onto the Rewind with his first original single since November of last year is Tempe-based singer/songwriter Adam Simons, who gets us reminiscing about the simplicity of summer days from years ago. It is especially good for the end of the season.

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 3/5 – 3/11/17

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…
_____

BLAIR – “Dance Alone” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Los Angeles musician Evan Blair had a pair of great singles that received some major love from the blogs last year, and “Dance” has a lot of room to grow, even though it’s taking off very quickly too. His latest hit will get you on your feet and moving all over the place.


_____

COMPUTER GAMES – “Every Single Night” (iTunes) (Spotify)
It’s been a minute since Glee left the television schedule, though it’s still in our hearts. However, whenever I hear that Darren Criss is releasing new music, my ears are bound to perk up. Together with brother Chuck, their first EP is really fun and energetic. Great set!

_____

XY&O – “What’s Love Got To Do With It” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Yes, as you were probably thinking, this is a cover of the iconic Tina Turner hit from 1984. This English group has never appeared on the Rewind before, but I enjoyed “I’m Not Right” and “Low Tide” a while ago. Check out the great production on this very fresh take.

EMMI – “Talk To Me” (SoundCloud)
KYKO – “Drive” (SoundCloud)
