RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Ten

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
BRUCE WIEGNER – “IDK” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance

Wiegner makes the Rewind for the first time, though he first came onto my radar a few months back with a solid track titled “Better Off This Way” (as The Weekend Riot) and co-writes for acts like Annalia and Gatsby. IDK what you think, but I’m enjoying this cut.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
KYAN PALMER & NICOPOP. featuring YURI JONESS – “Antisocial Socialites” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Third appearance, second appearance, first appearance

Of the three artists combining their talents for this single, Palmer returns to the Rewind with his first track since “Pretend That You Love Me” from last September, one of the great cuts from on his set Burn Mona Lisa. This collaboration is a groovy throwback jam.

PICK OF THE WEEK: THREE
LO LO – “Sweater Collection” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance

The Canadian soloist that gave us the great pop bop “Convenient” last year, as well as the minor radio hit “Yours” up north, gets her second appearance on the Rewind with a fashionable single that’s just the right fit. The sound is familiar, but it’s irresistibly catchy!

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
ADAM MELCHOR – “Plan On You”
DENNY WHITE – “Like It Was”
GREYSON CHANCE – “Timekeeper”

Notes: White’s been a favorite of mine as both a solo artist and with Golden Coast, and his latest R&B-influenced pop tune is lovely.

_____

VOLUNTEER – “On The Line” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First time featured
Notes: Nashville’s Cory Quintard has his best single of 2018 to date, a nice pop track that’ll eventually get the request lines buzzing!

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

_____

DENNY WHITE – “Torn Up” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Three appearances last year, with notable features for “Traces” (January) and duo Golden Coast’s “Float On By” (October)
Notes: In a note to his Instagram followers, White talked about how “Torn” was the first release that he wrote, produced and mixed without the help of additional personnel. Spotify added the single to its New Music Friday lists in Canada and the United Kingdom.

_____

SAM FISCHER – “Smoke” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fischer’s two singles from November of 2016, “Getting Older” and “Same Friends”, were both featured
Notes: Fischer’s current release was co-written by a friend, Jamie Hartman, who also co-wrote the #2 entry on my Top 100 of 2017: “Human”, performed by singer Rag’N’Bone Man. (Hartman also produced “Smoke”.) Check it out before it lights up everywhere!

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 4/2 – 4/8/17

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…
_____

JUKEBOX THE GHOST – “Stay The Night” (iTunes) (Spotify)
What happens when this Brooklyn-based trio, responsible for the #1 song (“Postcard”) on my Top 100 of 2015, returns with one of the brightest and most radio-friendly singles of their career? You put that jam on repeat, that’s what you do. It’s great for summer!

_____

PAPERWHITE – “Wash Us Away” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Just under two months after siblings Ben and Katie Marshall last appeared on the Rewind with “Human Nature”, the Brooklyn duo adds one more bop to their collection. It starts out smoothly, then explodes with a powerful chorus. I hope it doesn’t go “away” yet.

_____

TIPLING ROCK – “A Side / B Side” (iTunes) (Spotify)
It’s been a moment since these Boston college kids put out a new song, and if this was their final exam, I’d give them high marks. It’s probably not a surprise, however, since I’ve written about the guys several times before. Dig into their psychedelic pop power now!

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

Record Rewind - January 8, 2017

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…

_____

DENNY WHITE – “Traces” (Spotify)
After another solid push from Spotify’s set of New Music Friday playlists, this Los Angeles singer/songwriter is certainly feeling the love from the streaming world. I really dig the production on this song, and there’s definitely some replay value. White knows a hit!

_____

MARTIN LUKE BROWN – “65 Roses” (iTunes) (Spotify)
After releasing “Shadow & Light” a little under two months ago, Brown starts off 2017 on a fantastic note with a deeply personal cut that was inspired by two people affected by cystic fibrosis. Though it’s a very sad experience, a beautiful track came out of that pain.

_____

For more great new music, these tunes are worth a listen…
AVI ON FIRE – “So Far Away From Me” (SoundCloud)
LONELY BENSON – “Can’t Put You Down” (SoundCloud)

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 9/18 – 9/24

Record Rewind - September 25, 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…

_____

AARON KRAUSE – “Thinkin Bout You” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Krause continues to see huge streaming stats for his 2013 cover of “Every Breath You Take”, but his new pop gem might just take your breath away. He’s been honing his craft as a writer/producer, and this cut is a great achievement for the Nashville musician.

_____

DENNY WHITE – “Psycho” (available October 7)
He tasted sweet success with “Sweetness”, and he was too cool for school with Golden Coast’s “Recess”. Now, White’s going crazy on the piano and the percussion with his haunting pop track, which comes just a month before Halloween. Spooky. It’s very good.

_____

KNGDAVD – “Poppies” (iTunes) (Spotify)
This New York City duo is bringing the heat with their fantastic future pop sound. “Say My Name” was featured on the Rewind in mid-July, and “Poppies” blooms in all its rhythmic, yet rock-driven glory. Led by guitar and vocal, their music is out of this world.

_____

MACKENZIE THOMS – “Shout” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Thoms has been a regular on my blog and playlists for over a year now with songs like “Conviction” and “Do Me All Again”, and if you’re thinking this is an Isley Brothers or Tears For Fears cover, think again. This slick sound is ready to be blasted on the radio.

_____

MULLALLY – “Wonderful” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Singer Connor Mullally has already seen massive love for his previous singles, “Overdose” and “Troubled Love”, and the Norfolk performer isn’t done adding to his collection of super songs yet. Combining soul and a bit of tropical pop, it certainly works here.

_____

RAINSFORD – “Too Close” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Los Angeles’s Rainey Qualley last appeared on the Rewind in July, when “S.I.D. (Sunshine In December)” first debuted. The sun’s certainly shining in September too, as her new jam hits the blogs. Regardless of genre, Qualley’s voice draws you in. It’s excellent.

_____

TAY SALEM – “Threads” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Salem first made the Rewind in mid-July; that’s when he gave us a dose of “Iron”. Now, the London-based singer returns with the next taste of his Night Mill EP, due October 7. The powerful track blends indie rock and R&B, creating a lush musical experience.

_____

For more great new music, and there was a lot of it this week, these tunes are worth a listen…
ALLIE & IVY – “Best Friends” (SoundCloud)
COSMOS & CREATURE – “Young” (SoundCloud)
KATELYN TARVER – “What Do We Know Now” (SoundCloud)
KIAH VICTORIA – “Titivating” (SoundCloud)
OYSTER KIDS – “40 Nights” (SoundCloud)
