RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, May 13-19, 2018

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…

_____

BETTY WHO – “Taste” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Two previous appearances, most recently “Look Back” (March 2018)
Notes: Who’s newest winner is fifty shades of saucy and sensual, wrapped in a great pop production. This craving is really delicious.

_____

CARLIE HANSON – “Mood” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Three previous appearances, most recently “Us” (February 2018)
Notes: If you’re in the mood for another jam from Hanson, which I currently am, you’ll definitely dig the urban lean of her new one.

_____

CHELSEA CUTLER – “The Reason” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Two previous appearances, most recently “Out Of Focus” (February 2018)
Notes: Cutler’s third single of the year has a great hook and solid electronic elements, and I think you’d agree that that’s reasonable.

_____

JESSE SAINT JOHN – “Fake It” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: One previous appearance, “Move” (February 2018)
Notes: If you weren’t moving to his last single, you may not have a passion for pop bops! John’s newest release is an electronic gem.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
FELICITY – “Pilot With A Fear Of Heights”
VINDATA x R.LUM.R – “Emotion”

CONFETTI – “When I Grow Up” (Spotify)

_____

FRILLS – “She’s Got Love” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Two previous features, including “My Love” (April 2017)
Notes: The duo of Simon Oscroft and Dan Gibson have been steadily receiving their streaming love for roughly a year now, with the aforementioned “My Love” still in the lead across the major services. Still, their latest “Love” is very much worth the love and plays.

_____

MR GABRIEL – “Tambourine” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First time featured
Notes: This Nashville-based musician is probably best known for his time with the indie rock band Kopecky, who had some success at the Triple A format several years ago. If you’re a fan of psychedelic pop with a sync-ready hook, you’re sure to jam to this release!

MATT SIMONS – “We Can Do Better” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First time featured
Notes: Previously signed to Republic Records here in the States, and now going the independent route via Kobalt’s AWAL program, the fun and brassy feel of this positive pop record has way too much potential to go unnoticed here. It’s at #40 on my current chart!
