RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 9/10 – 9/16/17

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…

_____

COURTSHIP. – “Tell Me Tell Me” (Spotify)
This Los Angeles group last appeared on the Rewind in June with “Perfect People”, which was featured in late August in Entercom’s new artist integration program for the Alternative radio format, 7×7. Their newest upload is a catchy catchy piece of retro retro pop.

_____

KENZIE NIMMO – “Bones” (Spotify)
This is Nimmo’s first single to be featured on the Rewind, though she was a part of an April 2015 post about several contestants in a competition to open iHeartMedia’s annual Festival in Las Vegas. That soft pop sound is a winner for me, as well as that lovely voice.

_____

MARTIN LUKE BROWN – “Opalite” (Spotify)
This singer’s “Into Yellow”, released in June, was his most recent entry to be spotlighted on the Rewind. The tune recently crossed a million streams on Spotify. As always, Brown sounds great, as he tries to experiment with layered arrangements and bigger sounds.

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

_____

COURTSHIP. – “Perfect People” (iTunes) (Spotify)
The Los Angeles duo of Eli Hirsch and Micah Gordon continues to craft excellent cuts for the blog world, with “Love For Everyone” and “Sunroof” among my favorites from them. “Perfect” has a lovely nostalgic feel, sounding like a nod to late 70’s California rock.

_____

KAPTAN – “Better” (iTunes) (Spotify)
I’ve been a big supporter of Andrew de Torres’s current project on the blog for a couple of years now, though he hasn’t appeared in a Rewind post since “Numbers” in July 2016. Well, you can re-examine those numbers now, as his alternative pop jam gets started.

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 4/30 – 5/6/17

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…
_____

BRUNO MAJOR – “Fair-Weather Friend” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Major’s lovely lunar project continues on with another stellar entry, which is probably my favorite cut since November’s “Easily”. It brings me back to those great neo soul artists from the late 90’s or early 00’s, like D’Angelo and Maxwell. I love that smooth sound.


_____

LOSTBOYCROW – “Devil’s In The Backseat” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Just last month, this Los Angeles performer was featured on the Rewind with “Real Name”. So, I guess the real name of the game is that he has another winner. When it comes to killer songs, this R&B-flavored track puts him in the front seat and driving to the top.

_____

VÉRITÉ – “Bout You” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Singer Kelsey Byrne is out with another single off her Somewhere In Between album, due June 23, one of my most anticipated sets for the summer. Though I enjoyed “When You’re Gone”, the strong melody and dramatics of this one makes it more instant for me.

Emily Warren – “Hurt By You” (SoundCloud)
Late Night Episode – “Talk About Love” (SoundCloud)

Michl – “Waste?” (SoundCloud)

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 11/13 – 11/19

Record Rewind - November 20, 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 PGTC SoundCloud page and my playlists on Spotify, these stuck out as my favorite independent songs of the week…

_____

BROADHURST – “Bones” (iTunes) (Spotify)
From Sneaky Sound System to sound systems all over the globe, Nick Broadhurst has just about four million Spotify streams for a super single of his, “Little Lover”, and all of the remixes that accompanied it. His latest song, a strong pop ballad, will intrigue you.

_____

COURTSHIP. – “Love For Everyone” (iTunes) (Spotify)
This is the first time on the Rewind for the duo of Eli Hirsch and Micah Gordon, and I think it’s a safe bet that this track will find its way into a commercial real soon. It’s just too catchy to be ignored, and the timely message makes it an even more important single.

_____

KYKO – “Nature” (iTunes) (Spotify)
The last time London’s Scott Verrill was on the Rewind was in September; that’s when his track “Horizon” debuted. That single is a few days away from reaching 600,000 streams on Spotify. Pretty impressive! His tropical pop meets indie rock sound is a winner.

_____

PATTERNIST – “Give It Up” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Musician Gabe Mouer has been making sweet sounds under this name for a couple of years now, so I guess I’m overdue for putting one of his songs on the Rewind. Luckily, this catchy indie pop bop is definitely on repeat for me. Check out his new EP next month.

_____

PRETTY SISTER – “Thirsty” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Zak Waters continues to impress with this fun and funky number that’ll leave you parched for more pop perfection. Of course, I’ve been following the project for over a year now, and with excellent tracks like “Come To LA” and “West Coast”, he’s doing real well.

_____

THØSS – “Submarine” (iTunes) (Spotify)
It’s great to have this performer return with a quality single. In June, the title track from his Benchwarmer EP was included on the Rewind, but the whole set is a pretty solid listen. In an ocean full of indie rock acts, this submarine is certainly making some waves.

_____

For more great new music, these tunes are worth a listen…
ALLMAN BROWN featuring LIZ LAWRENCE – “Palms” (SoundCloud)
ANDIE CASE – “So Low” (SoundCloud)
