RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 11/12 – 11/18/17

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…

_____

AARON TAOS featuring SHANE STOKES – “Alone” (Spotify)
I’ve been a fan of Taos’s tracks for just over two years now, with his tunes being featured on the Rewind and PGTC Spotify playlists. This year alone, my favorite releases from him include “Not Over Yet” and “Off My Mind”. His diverse musical palette shines again.

_____

ALY & AJ – “Promises” (Spotify)
With the release of their EP Ten Years this past Friday, the duo of sisters Alyson and Amanda Joy Michalka continue to impress the pop world with their comeback (which will hopefully include a full-length set next year!) This song is my favorite, a super retro bop.

_____

CHELSEA LANKES – “Matches” (Spotify)
You know that I support all my Nashville kings and queens, and that includes Lankes, though it’s been a moment since her last new music dropped. Back in the spring of 2016, I really enjoyed her self-titled EP. Her latest edgy pop winner is quite an addictive song!

_____

LAUV – “Paris In The Rain” (Spotify)
Pop keeps pouring down on us this week with the latest tune from Ari Leff’s ongoing playlist project titled I met you when I was 18. This one isn’t as instant as some of his past songs, a few of which have now been on the radio, but there’s a nice 70’s R&B influence.

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
AIRPLANE MAN – “New Supplier” (SoundCloud)
BROADHURST – “Open Wide” (SoundCloud)
GHOST MACHINES – “We Bring The Fire” (SoundCloud)
JAMES DROLL – “Jacket Weather” (SoundCloud)
THE BEACH – “U.R. Beautiful” (SoundCloud)
VOKES – “Easy To Hate” (SoundCloud)

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 7/30 – 8/5/17

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…

_____

JAMES DROLL – “Bad For You” (iTunes) (Spotify)
After all the Nashville love last week, I had to spread a little this week as well. Enter Droll, who I’ve enjoyed a few tracks from in the last year, including “Off Beat” and “Sleepwalker”. “Bad” is, well, pretty good, as its future R&B sound sizzles through your speakers.

_____

LOSTBOYCROW – “Missing London” (iTunes) (Spotify)
This Los Angeles-based performer has been featured on the Rewind (and my playlists) for some time now, with the track “Spin The Globe” getting a brief mention last month. The guitar-driven “London” is a pleasant pop track, one that’s sure to appeal to his base.

ANNA MAE – “Call Girl” (SoundCloud)
FLEURIE – “Hurricane” (SoundCloud)
NATHAN BALL – “Waste Of Time” (SoundCloud)

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 9/11 – 9/17

Record Rewind - September 18, 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…

_____

CAPPA – “Hey Hi Hello” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Bonjour and hola to another fun song from this Nashville singer, featured on her recent EP release titled Queen Of Hearts. She’s certainly been the Queen of the Rewind recently, with several cuts included to date. What are you waiting for? Check out her EP.

_____

EZA – “Sway” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Also adding to the abundance of Nashville pop this week is a cut from the scintillating and sensual Dead Reckoning EP, the latest set of songs from performer Ellery Bonham. It’s truly a great body of work. Look out for the sweat pouring out of your speakers.

_____

JUNIOR PROM – “You, Me, And Joe Strummer” (iTunes) (Spotify)
True story: I originally heard this song back in February 2015 when I was consulting at Atlantic Records, and this act, which was a duo at the time, was signed to sister label Elektra. Times have changed, but the track is still excellent, and I absolutely support it!

_____

MILLINGTON – “Being” (iTunes) (Spotify)
The only international singer in this week’s review is a great discovery from Melbourne, Australia. Tom Millington combines pop and world sounds to create this upbeat stomper, which was written about the joys of his daughter’s birth. Very sweet thing to do!

_____

ROZES – “Under The Grave” (iTunes) (Spotify)
During the summer, the Philadelphia singer dropped “Hangin’ On”, which continues to see some action from a set of remixes. On Friday, “Under” was released, an electronic pop single that sounds like it’s bound for radio play. Will it bloom beyond the blogs?

_____

SLOW SUGAR – “Pieces” (iTunes) (Spotify)
In early August, I covered this New York duo and their track “Hypnotic Love”, which was a great debut. Now, Danielle Harris and Alex Utay return with another solid indie pop song, full of dream and ethereal influences. Check out that wordplay in the chorus.

For more new music, these tunes are worth a listen…
ADAM SAMPLE – “Weekend” (SoundCloud)
AIRPLANE MAN – “Take Me All The Way Home” (SoundCloud)
JAMES DROLL – “Sleepwalker” (SoundCloud)
