Singer and songwriter Pajak has a great pop tune with this cut, which comes from hitmaker Jake Gosling’s independent label called Goldun Egg. It’s previously given us some good singles by a female performer named NUUXS, which included Pajak’s involvement.

PICK OF THE WEEK: ONE
CARLY ROSE – “Getaway Car” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance

Several years after her appearance on the short-lived U.S. version of The X Factor, this performer’s new music is off to a good start. The follow-up to “Birds & Bees” received some decent playlisting on Spotify last Friday and has an intriguing dark pop/rock sound.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
FINNEAS – “Die Alone” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: 15th appearance

Here comes another featured song from the 22-year-old singer, songwriter and older brother of Billie Eilish, who charted in several countries on Apple Music and iTunes with his new release, the Blood Harmony EP. The cut makes for an excellent closer to the set.

PICK OF THE WEEK: ONE
PETER THOMAS – “If You’re Happy Now” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fourth appearance

Underrated pop songwriter and performer Thomas has a history of making fantastic music and his artist project has produced even more cool songs since the summer. This one, a mellow 80’s soft pop-influenced tune, certainly makes us happy that it was released.

RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Thirty Eight

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
FINNEAS – “I Don’t Miss You At All” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: 14th appearance

After debuting “Shelter” a few weeks ago, this next cut from his forthcoming EP titled Blood Harmony (due in two weeks) is a great R&B-influenced cut that runs about two minutes in length. Not just anyone can pull off a F. Scott Fitzgerald reference, but it works!

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
LAUV – “Feelings” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: 18th appearance (one as WOOF! IT’S BILLY)

Can’t say we know too many performers that would put out a track under their dog’s name, but the last Lauv single from a couple of weeks back was just that. Now, under his own name, the artist is out with a bubbly new song (check out the video) that really sticks.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
GOLDTOP x SAM TINNESZ – “Soldiers”
LIME CORDIALE – “Robbery”
MINKE – “Rest”
OVERSTREET – “My Ex”
TONI CORNELL – “Far Away Places”
VINCINT – “Someday”

PICK OF THE WEEK: ONE
JT ROACH – “Make It Up To You” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance

After his win on the NBC show Songland, leading to his original composition “Somebody To Love” being cut by OneRepublic, the Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter delivers another cool lyric and song with a much softer production, which flows very well.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
WRABEL – “Flying” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Eighth appearance

A few cuts from this performer’s new EP titled One Of Those Happy People (which came out on Friday) have already been included on the Rewind since the spring. This track, a groovy and glitzy gem that was written with Jesse Shatkin and Jesse Thomas, is a bop.

Previously on the Rewind: Third appearance

Just ahead of his mixtape Vitamin D, which debuts on Friday, this performer unleashes a very groovy side to the project on the new single to be released from it. The disco-tinged production packs a little nostalgia, but remains contemporary enough to sound fresh.
