RECORD REWIND 2020: PGTC Picks, Week Sixteen

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
PHOEBE RYAN – “Ring” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Third appearance

If Ryan’s name rings a bell, you may remember her time with Columbia Records when she released a number of tracks that did well in the streaming world, including 2015’s “Mine” and 2017’s “Dark Side”. Though she’s now independent, her music is still very nice.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
RAINSFORD – “2 Cents” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Sixth appearance

This is the sixth appearance to date on the Rewind for the daughter of actress Andie MacDowell and the talent definitely runs in the family. As she continues to carve a path in the electronic and synth-pop world, her stunning new single is worth much more money.

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
ANSON SEABRA – “Emerald Eyes”
CAPPA featuring YUPPYCULT – “Change My Mind”
GIRL IN RED – “Midnight Love”
HANNAH GRACE – “Wasted Love”

RECORD REWIND 2020: PGTC Picks, Week One

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!

PICK OF THE WEEK: ONE
GABRIELLE APLIN & NINA NESBITT – “Miss You 2” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fourth appearance / Nesbitt is signed to Cooking Vinyl (via Sony’s The Orchard)

Just about three years after Aplin’s original version was released, which I didn’t cover on the Rewind at the time, this new take with Nesbitt landed towards the top of the new releases I listened to last week. The latter performer is a good fit and it still sounds fresh.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
LAUV – “Changes” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: 21st appearance

With his latest song off the forthcoming album ~How I’m Feeling~, due March 6, Lauv is feeling pretty reflective and vulnerable. A sobering ode to making resolutions and shifting one’s priorities in life, the lyric remains hopeful. It’s a nice tune heading into 2020.

HANNAH GRACE – “When I Ruled The World”
THE MOWGLI’S – “Wasting Time”

RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Three

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 – “Grip” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance

Former Vine star Bailey is earning some praise for his second original song, the follow-up to “Callin'” from October of last year. The 22-year-old performer has a fairly big fan base from his years of covering and creating music, so watch out for his upcoming tracks.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
LAUREN AQUILINA – “If Looks Could Kill” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance

Aquilina’s prior appearance on the weekly post came back in September with her release called “Psycho”. This week, not only is her latest solo cut out, but she also appears on “FU4E”, an EP cut by the duo Los Kings. Both tracks are quality additions to her catalog.

PICK OF THE WEEK: THREE
MISS BENNY – “Rendezvous” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance

Actor and social media star Ben J. Pierce previously released songs under the artist name Benny, but as Miss Benny, he’s looking to take things to the next level. With a fierce sound that’s catchy and confident, 2019 should be a great year for the teenage performer.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
AARON TAOS featuring KHARY – “Is It Anything?”
DELANEY JANE & SHAUN FRANK – “Throwback”
DES ROCS – “Outta My Mind”
ELLA VOS – “Temporary”
HANNAH GRACE – “With You”
MYYLO – “Jonesing”
VICETONE featuring MATT WERTZ – “Fences”
VIOLET SKIES – “Is She Gonna Be There?”

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 6/26 – 7/2

Record Rewind - July 3, 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. We’ll be testing it out this month, so if you like what you see, let me know what you think!

Across the world of SoundCloud and my Indie Summer Mix on Spotify, these records stuck out as my favorite independent tunes of the week…

_____

BEACH TIGER – “Companion” (iTunes) (Spotify)
You may have heard this song in the mix of your favorite New Music Friday playlist. I’ve enjoyed their two prior singles, and it’s a good thing to say that they’re 3-for-3 for me now. The South Carolina band has mastered a great indie rock mentality that works.

_____

CAPPA – “Mad About U” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Attention pop girls: please clear the way for Carla Cappa. The Nashville performer delivers again with her new song, a saucy R&B flavored track with nice production. Her hot jam is a winner for the summer; call it another feather in her cap-pa. (I tried, really.)

_____

HANNAH GRACE – “Mustang” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Grace has been on my radar for a number of years now, and I’ve enjoyed songs like “Keep Your Love” and “Meant To Be Kind”. It looks like she’s about to add to my favorites, with a new EP due on July 15. Fusing 70’s rock with current pop, Grace shines again.

_____

KID RUNNER – “Give Me Something To Love” (iTunes) (Spotify)
If there’s one song this week that could be a big record at Alternative radio several months from now, it’s this excellent tune from the upcoming EP Body Language, due August 12. The Ohio band continues to get streaming love, and is poised for more success.

_____

RAINSFORD – “S.I.D. (Sunshine In December)”
Last year, Rainey Qualley had a pair of tracks issued to Country stations on a small label, including “Me And Johnny Cash”, which was spun on a number of outlets. Returning with a project under this new name, she flourishes with an edgy pop sound and lyric.

_____

VOKES featuring NEVVE – “Backroad” (iTunes) (Spotify)
He’s four singles into his new project, and it’s pretty clear that Los Angeles musician Mike Harris has a strong electronic soul vibe that’s hitting thousands of ears around the world. His latest track should continue to, ahem, drive up support in the coming days.

_____

WILD – “Silver & Gold” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Christmas in July? Not quite. Save the snow and tinsel for a later date, but do unwrap this gift from the Los Angeles trio. The last year has given the band a blog and streaming breakout, with “Back To You” and “Vagabond” leading the pack. Look out for more.

_____

YOUNG SUMMER – “Alright” (iTunes) (Spotify)
The summer is very young indeed, but this summery sound will get you feeling young again. D.C.-based singer Bobbie Allen has a great return single that dives into the pop pool of 80’s goodness. Don’t towel off just yet; you’ll want to ride this wave for a while.

_____

For more new music, we suggest…
GYPSY & THE CAT – “Life” (iTunes) (Spotify)
NATIVE PEOPLE – “Call Me” (iTunes) (Spotify)
