RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 10/8 – 10/14/17

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…

_____

BRASKO – “Take Me” (Spotify)
As Jordan Gable, he provided plenty of tasty tunes for several PGTC playlists, including two Rewind appearances with “Fool Of Me” (June 2016) and “Didn’t Mean It” (September 2016). Now, as a second era begins, his edgy new wave-influenced pop sound shines.

_____

GOLDEN COAST – “Float On By” (Spotify)
Singer and songwriter Denny White has been on the Rewind with a pair of tunes this year, including a feature for “Traces” (January 2017). So, it’s also good to have his duo back in action! Their catchy rhythmic pop song floats toward the top of this week’s releases.

_____

VOKES – “Screens” (Spotify)
Don’t worry, your vision is fine! This act is now a quintet, having previously hit the Rewind as a solo project (musician Mike Harris) with “Wrong” (August 2016). Focused in a more alternative direction, the transition is flawless and the single is worth a few listens.

_____

ZAYDE WØLF – “Higher Than High” (Spotify)
Hungry like the Wolf? Us too! “High” is the Nashville performer’s third cut on the Rewind in 2017, with “The Jungle” (August 2017) marking his last appearance to date. With a radio-ready and anthemic pop/rock sound, you’ll be blasting this track through the fall.

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
CHRIS JOBE – “Thank You Internet” (SoundCloud)
LEO KALYAN – “No Man’s Land (Part 1)” (SoundCloud)
LUKR – “Secrets” (SoundCloud)

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 12/4 – 12/10

Record Rewind - December 11, 2016

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…

_____

GOLDEN COAST – “Make Ya Move” (iTunes) (Spotify)
It was hard selecting just one spotlight track from this duo’s self-titled EP, which was released a few days ago. Both “Comeback Kid” and “Recess” are former Rewind picks, and “Move” is bound to move up in streams and blog entries. You’ll bounce to this pop bop.

_____

PATTERNIST – “When The Lights Turn Low” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Gabe Mouer, a musician based in Portland, OR, was featured on the Rewind three weeks ago with the title track from Give It Up, an EP he released on Friday. Shades of dance-pop and indie rock color this fun cut, making it (and the other songs) an enjoyable listen.

_____

TYLER HILTON – “Next To You” (iTunes) (Spotify)
High school flashback! Signed to Maverick Records, this singer’s “When It Comes” and “How Love Should Be” were both hits on my chart, with “When” going to #5 just after Christmas in 2004. Hilton self-releases his music now, and the results are pretty fantastic.

_____

YOUNG SUMMER – “Old Chunk Of Coal” (iTunes – n/a) (Spotify – n/a)
I said to myself one day recently, “Self, how have you survived without noting Young Summer on the Rewind in over a month?” As I struggled to find an answer, lo and behold, this John Anderson cover appeared. It’s a beautiful reinterpretation of a country classic.

BEST NIGHT EVER – “Caught Up” (SoundCloud)
JUNIOR PROM – “Contenders” (SoundCloud)

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 10/9 – 10/15

Record Rewind - October 16, 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…

_____

BEACH WEATHER – “Chit Chat” (iTunes) (Spotify)
We could really use some beach weather with the recent fall chill starting up again, but I think this is about as close as we’re going to get. This trio had a song called “Wolf” that I enjoyed in 2015, and their latest song is another rockin’ release from the LAB crew.

_____

DECO – “I T I W Y” (iTunes) (Spotify)
This English group was last on the Rewind in June, when their single “Apollo” was released. Now, “I T I W Y”, or “I Thought I Was Yours” to those of you who’d like to spell it all out, is making its debut and soaking up all that lovely mid-80’s new wave goodness.

_____

GOLDEN COAST – “Comeback Kid” (iTunes) (Spotify)
If you’re a Country music fan, you’re probably familiar with a current radio song with the same title from a certain sibling trio. It’s definitely not this one, a pretty catchy track from Denny White and Steven Mudd that’s been knocking out the competition online.


_____

YOUNG SUMMER – “Echo” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Yes, after months of waiting, it’s finally coming. Get ready for her new EP You Would Have Loved It Here, due on October 28. On the Rewind, I’ve featured the three previous singles from the EP: “Alright”, “Fallout” and “Paused Parade”. This tune is also good.

HUDSON SCOTT – “Panning For Gold” (SoundCloud)
SAM TINNESZ – “Dangerous Game” (SoundCloud)
TAY SALEM – “Recreate” (SoundCloud)

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 8/21 – 8/27

Record Rewind - August 28, 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…

_____

CAPE CUB – “All I Need” (iTunes) (Spotify)
It’s amazing to have a new song from Chad Male, who released his Closer EP back in the spring. That set yielded great singles like “Keep Me In Mind” and “Swim”. His return marks a fuller sound and more of a new wave sensibility, one that fits with the singer.

_____

FLETCHER – “Wasted Youth” (iTunes) (Spotify)
She’s a queen of streams, and she’s back where she belongs: on your favorite Spotify New Music Friday playlist. Leaping towards a total of 42 million plays at the service, her latest single is perhaps her best since “War Paint”. It’s certainly not a wasted release.

_____

GOLDEN COAST – “Recess” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Do you ever wish you were back on the swings or the monkey bars, reliving the joy of being young again? The Los Angeles duo of Denny White and Steven Mudd want to take you out of the darkness and onto this pop playground. I hope this slides onto radio.

_____

PHANGS – “Cul De Sac” (iTunes) (Spotify)
From leading the Cardboard Kids to debuting his new solo project, Jake Germany has plenty of sounds to make the rounds. That consistent output provides us with another cool single. His song title might be a dead-end street, but his career is one open road.

_____

ROYAL TONGUES – “Overdose” (iTunes) (Spotify)
The boys from Buffalo, Aaron Bonus and Justin Gammella, are back with their first new release in nearly four months. In May, it was “Oblivion”. Now, sticking with the “O” titles, their prescription for energetic production and indie pop goodness will heal all.

_____

THE NEW COAST – “Slow Down” (iTunes)
We last heard from Nick Blyth and Chris Cheater earlier this year, when “Lost In Your Love” had its debut on blogs and playlists. Their Paraga Beach EP comes out November 4, but given these two great tracks, the other half of the EP should be just as solid.

_____

YOUNG SUMMER – “Fallout” (iTunes) (Spotify)
At this point, you know I’m excited about the upcoming EP from Bobbie Allen. Each cut released so far is different musically, and I can’t wait to hear the full thing. She released this lush ballad earlier this week, soothing with its dulcet tones and pretty melody.

For more new music, these tunes are worth a listen…
KIAH VICTORIA – “Hollow” (SoundCloud)
MYZICA featuring EZRA CAREY – “Drive” (SoundCloud)
TRUITT – “Fallback” (SoundCloud)
