RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week 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
BLAKE ROSE – “Lost” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance

Australian performer Rose appears to be blooming like a rose with his second single to date, which received notable support at both Apple Music and Spotify on Friday and ranked among the top 60 pop titles on iTunes. His awesome song is poised to do even more.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
KIM PETRAS – “If U Think About Me…” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fourth appearance

Three is better than one, and Petras knows it well, having just released another three songs on Thursday of last week. While the two others are collaborations, this solo cut ranks as my favorite of the tracks by far. No need to think about it: this pop bop is a nice one.

PICK OF THE WEEK: THREE
R3HAB x ICONA POP – “This Is How We Party” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Third appearance (Icona Pop records for Big Beat Records, distributed by Atlantic Records)

Here’s a great dance release with a nostalgic twist: the song interpolates another track of the same name by S.O.A.P., a Danish duo whose European hit peaked at #21 on the CHR/Pop chart in May 1998. This update keeps it fresh and should be a solid club record.

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
ADAM MELCHOR – “Three Hours Ahead”
ADAM&STEVE featuring MATY NOYES – “Wherever You Are”
CHRIS JOBE – “Cry”
COOPER & GATLIN – “Like You”
GRANT LANDIS – “Home To Momma”
GREYSON CHANCE – “Shut Up”
SOPHIA ANGELES – “Anybody Else”
SVRCINA – “Insecure”

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 10/8 – 10/14/17

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…

_____

BRASKO – “Take Me” (Spotify)
As Jordan Gable, he provided plenty of tasty tunes for several PGTC playlists, including two Rewind appearances with “Fool Of Me” (June 2016) and “Didn’t Mean It” (September 2016). Now, as a second era begins, his edgy new wave-influenced pop sound shines.

_____

GOLDEN COAST – “Float On By” (Spotify)
Singer and songwriter Denny White has been on the Rewind with a pair of tunes this year, including a feature for “Traces” (January 2017). So, it’s also good to have his duo back in action! Their catchy rhythmic pop song floats toward the top of this week’s releases.

_____

VOKES – “Screens” (Spotify)
Don’t worry, your vision is fine! This act is now a quintet, having previously hit the Rewind as a solo project (musician Mike Harris) with “Wrong” (August 2016). Focused in a more alternative direction, the transition is flawless and the single is worth a few listens.

_____

ZAYDE WØLF – “Higher Than High” (Spotify)
Hungry like the Wolf? Us too! “High” is the Nashville performer’s third cut on the Rewind in 2017, with “The Jungle” (August 2017) marking his last appearance to date. With a radio-ready and anthemic pop/rock sound, you’ll be blasting this track through the fall.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
CHRIS JOBE – “Thank You Internet” (SoundCloud)
LEO KALYAN – “No Man’s Land (Part 1)” (SoundCloud)
LUKR – “Secrets” (SoundCloud)
