RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Forty Three

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
CXLOE – “Devil You Don’t” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fifth appearance

This is the fourth single from CXLOE to appear on the Rewind this year and is already receiving support from influential Australian radio station Triple J, leading to some building action on Shazam down under. The darker electronic and pop cut is devilishly good.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
JULIANDER – “On & On” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance

After one EP and a series of singles through Sony Music in Sweden, singer and songwriter Juliander is now independent and he has a great hit to start off his next era. The smooth and enticing R&B-influenced cut should stay on (& on) your playlist through the fall.

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
FLY BY MIDNIGHT – “Love Me Like A Friend”
SVRCINA – “Between Us”

RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Thirty Two

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
CXLOE & GNASH – “Sick” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fourth appearance for CXLOE / Gnash is signed to Atlantic Records

As long as you’re not sick of me posting about her, emerging Australian pop singer CXLOE has another awesome song that sees her collaborate with gnash, who appeared in an unsigned acts spotlight post at the end of 2015. She’s ready to slay the pop radio charts.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
JOHNNY STIMSON – “IDWLY” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Tenth appearance

Stimson has been a favorite of mine for several years now, with this new single being his third appearance on the Rewind so far this year. IDWLY may be short for “I don’t wanna love you”, but as far as I’m concerned, my love for the cool sound has only just begun.

RUELLE – “Take It Out On You”
RUTHANNE – “Unrequited”

PICK OF THE WEEK: ONE
BAHARI – “:( (Sad Face)” (Spotify)

The former trio, now duo, certainly isn’t sad to see their latest release in our weekly recap. The darker electro-pop cut is a good one.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
CXLOE – “Low Blow” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Third appearance

This Australian performer continues to prove herself as a cool emerging name in pop music. “Low” is certainly a high point for her.

PICK OF THE WEEK: ONE
BETTY WHO – “The One” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Seventh appearance

One of the album highlights from this past Friday’s pack of releases is the latest set from this pop performer, a dazzling project with so many catchy tunes. Several of them, including “I Remember” from a few weeks ago, are on here. This retro track is also fantastic.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
CXLOE – “I Can’t Have Nice Things” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance

Australian-based pop is having a great 2019 so far and it’s so good have CXLOE in the mix to continue that trend. Of course, her cut titled “Show You”, which was included on the Rewind last August, got a lot of love from Spotify. Her newest release is pretty catchy.

PICK OF THE WEEK: THREE
FELIX CARTAL & LIGHTS – “Love Me” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance (Lights records for Warner Bros. Records)

For the CanCon lover in all of us, check out this super collaboration that’s sure to do well up north and in the EDM chart world. Out just in time for Valentine’s Day on the 14th, it’s another great addition to the catalogs of both soloists. Get ready to move it all night.

PICK OF THE WEEK: FOUR
XYLØ – “Nothing Left To Say” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance

After a run of quality bops on the Disruptor label, a part of the Sony family, Paige Duddy’s solo project (formerly a duo with brother Chase) continues on with a new independent song and a forthcoming EP in just under two weeks. It’s a good preview of the project.
