RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Eleven

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
ALEC BAILEY – “Lemonade” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance

Back in January, this performer’s past single “Grip” had its grip on that week’s edition of the Rewind. Now, his tangy new title gives Bailey another refreshing highlight to add to his collection of cool pop tunes. Stir it all together and you’ve got a talented rising star.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
GREYSON CHANCE – “Seasons Nineteen” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Seventh appearance

On a slow week in music, Chance’s new album Portraits is one of the top sets from Friday. Several titles from the project have been mentioned on the Rewind during the past few weeks, including “Shut Up” and “Timekeeper”. It’s the season(s) for taking a Chance!

BENEDICT CORK – “Fear Of Lonely”
KEVIN GARRETT – “Running From”

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”

RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Six

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
BLAKE ROSE – “Lost” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance

Australian performer Rose appears to be blooming like a rose with his second single to date, which received notable support at both Apple Music and Spotify on Friday and ranked among the top 60 pop titles on iTunes. His awesome song is poised to do even more.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
KIM PETRAS – “If U Think About Me…” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fourth appearance

Three is better than one, and Petras knows it well, having just released another three songs on Thursday of last week. While the two others are collaborations, this solo cut ranks as my favorite of the tracks by far. No need to think about it: this pop bop is a nice one.

PICK OF THE WEEK: THREE
R3HAB x ICONA POP – “This Is How We Party” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Third appearance (Icona Pop records for Big Beat Records, distributed by Atlantic Records)

Here’s a great dance release with a nostalgic twist: the song interpolates another track of the same name by S.O.A.P., a Danish duo whose European hit peaked at #21 on the CHR/Pop chart in May 1998. This update keeps it fresh and should be a solid club record.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
ADAM MELCHOR – “Three Hours Ahead”
ADAM&STEVE featuring MATY NOYES – “Wherever You Are”
CHRIS JOBE – “Cry”
COOPER & GATLIN – “Like You”
GRANT LANDIS – “Home To Momma”
GREYSON CHANCE – “Shut Up”
SOPHIA ANGELES – “Anybody Else”
SVRCINA – “Insecure”

_____

SVRCINA – “Dragonflies” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Seventh appearance
Notes: A semi-regular here on the weekly Rewind, the latest single by this performer is a tiny animal of a title with a big pop punch.

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 12/3 – 12/9/17

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…

_____

GREYSON CHANCE – “Low” (Spotify)
Chance’s “Seasons” was noted on the Rewind during the first week of July, but I was really impressed with his track titled “London” from late 2016. “Low” is a solid piano-driven tune for the winter, mixing both soft pop and electronic elements into one nice sound.

_____

JEREMY LOOPS – “Waves” (Spotify)
I’ve been meaning to check out more of Loops’s tracks over the past few years, so when this single was released last Friday, I knew I had to get all over it. Luckily, it’s quite the tune. Co-written with ace songwriter Jake Gosling, “Waves” is a perfect piece of summer.

AVI ON FIRE – “Escape” (SoundCloud)
KATE KAY ES – “Love Too Hard” (SoundCloud)
