RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Fifteen

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
FLY BY MIDNIGHT – “Waiting Tables” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Eighth appearance

There’s definitely two seats at the table for these guys; I’ve been feasting on their releases for some time now, so the waiting period wasn’t long for this winner to arrive. The mellow retro-tinged pop single combines enough modern elements for a successful result.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
HANNAH JANE LEWIS – “Not Yours Never Was” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fifth appearance

Following the release of the Rewind-approved cuts “Do It Without You” and “Last Night Every Night”, Lewis’s latest song is an easy add to the list, which is featured on her new self-titled EP. With so many great pop records in her catalog, she’ll continue to do well.

PICK OF THE WEEK: THREE
OVERSTREET – “All Nighter” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance

During the summer of 2017, Overstreet climbed as high as #14 on my personal chart with “Hold On”, though I enjoyed the majority of his songs during a stint with Island Records. Leaning towards a darker rock feel, this one could find support at Alternative radio.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
ALEC BAILEY – “Roseanne”
EBEN – “You The One”
HARRISON WHEELER featuring MARSHALL MAGIC – “Up All Night”
HUX – “Wreck”
JOHAN – “Fifteen”
MISS BENNY – “Every Boy”
MYZICA – “Can’t Come Back”
VIOLET DAYS – “Afterparty”

RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Thirteen

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
CAPPA – “I Do” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Seventh appearance

It’s been about four months since this artist last appeared on the Rewind with her song “Sux”, and her latest track definitely doesn’t suck whatsoever. Written with Aaron Blackmar, the lighter pop tune has a pleasant melody, while still preserving a playful attitude.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
JESSE SAINT JOHN – “Crying” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fifth appearance

Released as a part of a two-track single with an updated version of his former Rewind pick “What Do U Like”, you might need some tissues (sold seperately) when you check this cut out for the first time. The retro-tinged electronic sound finds just the right groove.

(no video available as of 3/31)

PICK OF THE WEEK: THREE
SVRCINA – “All I Wanna Do” (iTunes)
Previously on the Rewind: Ninth appearance

From “I Do” to “All I Wanna Do”, the latest Rewind entry for this Nashville performer may not be a hot Sheryl Crow cover, but it’s a pretty catchy single in its own right. Co-written with Ben Eggebrecht and Michael McEachern, it’s another super add to her catalog.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
CUBBI – “Buzzkill”
DANIELLA MASON – “Deepest Of Wells”
EBEN – “Nights Like This”
GABRIELLE APLIN – “Nothing Really Matters”
JOEL ADAMS – “Coffee”
LAUREN AQUILINA – “Tobacco In My Sheets”
RENCE – “Ways To Go”
THE DRIVER ERA – “Feel You Now”
THE WLDLFE – “The Other Side”
