RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, November 4-10, 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 independent songs of the week…

_____

ASHLEY TISDALE – “Voices In My Head” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance
Notes: “Bop To The Top” never felt more appropriate. Tisdale’s latest track, her first original song release since 2013, is very strong.

_____

CHELSEA CUTLER – “Love You More” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Eighth appearance
Notes: With a choice song from her second of two releases this year, Sleeping With Roses II, the slow burner has a pretty nice build.

_____

DALLASK – “Looking For Your Love” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance
Notes: Known for his top remixes for some of the biggest artists in the business, his newest dance hit has a great radio-ready sound.

_____

TRITONAL featuring MOZELLA – “Gonna Be Alright” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance for both acts
Notes: No amnesia here… we loved Mozella then and are thoroughly enjoying her newest collaboration, an electric feel-good single.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
JAMES DROLL – “Last Season”
MARC SCIBILIA – “Waiting On You”
MATT SIMONS – “Amy’s Song”
TYE JAMES – “So Damn Good”

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.

_____

Notes: The New York City duo is certainly flying with the latest single from their forthcoming set Rerunning, a dreamy pop delight.

_____

LIV MIRALDI – “Chromatic” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance
Notes: In June, Miraldi made her debut on the Rewind with a cool cover of the 2002 hit “Dilemma”. This tune is another great bop.

_____

PRETTY SISTER – “My Jam” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance
Notes: After burning onto the Rewind in July with “New Fire”, the talented performer throws it back with a 90’s R&B-inspired jam.

CHELSEA CUTLER – “AF1s”

_____

FINNEAS – “College” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Six previous appearances
Notes: There’s a ton of weight behind those lyrics, but Finneas’s new one delivers a solid punch that could translate into a radio hit.

_____

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.

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!

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
ALLIE X – “Focus”
BETTY WHO – “All Things”
CHELSEA CUTLER – “Someone Else”
FLY BY MIDNIGHT – “All The Feels”
NICHOLAS ROBERTS – “Growing Up”
REYNA – “Baby Forget It”
