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”

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

_____

CAPPA – “Sux” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Sixth appearance
Notes: Continuing her streak of great pop songs, this performer’s follow-up to the June single “Tension” is another catchy earworm.

_____

EMILY BURNS – “Damn Good Liar” (Spotify)

Notes: Burns’s Seven Scenes From The Same Summer from earlier this year is a glorious pop set and this great tune is a winner too.

_____

Previously on the Rewind: First appearance
Notes: Finally making it onto the Rewind with his sixth single of 2018, this Nashville artist connects with a super R&B-flavored jam.

TURN IT UP TUESDAY: What’s New In Stores This Week (Feb. 12)

Straight from the "Heart".

Straight from the “Heart”.

It’s two days after the GRAMMY Awards… feeling the letdown yet? Well, there’s still new music out this week, though labels don’t traditionally pack the schedule with albums and singles this week. Nevertheless, here are your new releases for February 12:

  • Pick Of The Week for this week is the new EP by singer-songwriter Matt Hires, Forever. The four-song release is a nice mix of twangy tunes (First single “Restless Heart” and “The Sound Of Falling In Love” and more straight-forward pop/rock ditties (the title track and “Signal In The Sky”.) It’s a digital-only EP, but a full-length album will be following on May 6, The World Won’t Last Forever. “Heart” should be making my personal chart in next one or two weeks. (AmazonMP3)
  • Only a few million of you watched Smash‘s return to NBC last week, but the television show puts out Bombshell this week, a packed 22-song album from the fictional musical that the show is producing based on the life of Marilyn Monroe. (iTunes)
  • Brushfire Records artist Matt Costa returns with a self-titled effort, which features first single “Good Times”, currently impacting AAA radio. (iTunes)
  • Gabrielle Aplin, who had a big hit on the U.K. charts last year with her cover of Frankie Goes To Hollywood‘s “The Power Of Love”, returns with “Please Don’t Say You Love Me”. It’s released as an EP here today. (AmazonMP3)
  • Rockers Bullet For My Valentine return with Temper Temper, their first release in three years and fourth studio album overall. (iTunes)
  • After releasing a Christmas album last September, Jeremy Camp puts out a regular studio album, Restless. (iTunes)

New digital-only singles that you can buy this week include:

We’ll be back next week with new albums by rockers Atlas Genius and Buckcherry. See you in seven!
