_____

PICK OF THE WEEK: ONE
PHANGS – “When I’m All Alone” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Tenth appearance

Nashville’s Jake Germany is ready to slay the world with his album Who’s Gonna Break Your Heart Tonight? later this summer, as we get a nice slice of perfect pop for an appetizer. Co-written by songwriting wizard Bonnie McKee, it’s a tasty and tantalizing tune!

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
WOLF – “Play Dead” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Third appearance

New York singer/songwriter Julia Wolf has been putting out some really great music so far this year, including her last two releases “Ghost” and “Pillow”, which both were included in the Rewind. The mellow sound of this song is fresh yet familiar and quality stuff.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
BLAKE ROSE – “Ordinary People”
CARO – “Part Of Me”
CONOR MAYNARD – “Nothing But You”

  • On this Mother’s Day weekend, Dua Lipa‘s “Break My Heart” scores a third week at #1 on my personal chart. This week’s top 40 debuts come in at #36 and #40 for Jamie Scott and Michael Franti & Spearhead, respectively. “Friendly Fire” marks Scott’s third solo tune outside of the duo Graffiti6 to make my chart. With four #1 singles to date here, split evenly between the duo and his solo career, we’ll see if this release can add to his total. “I Got You” is the first song to make my personal chart for Franti and his band since 2013’s “I’m Alive (Life Sounds Like)”, which got to #28. Their biggest single to date, 2009’s “Say Hey (I Love You)”, went as high as #12 for two weeks.

RECORD REWIND 2020: PGTC Picks, Week Eighteen

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 WEIGNER – “Say To You” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fifth appearance

This Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter has been fairly busy in the past year or so, creating songs for both himself and artists like musician and digital creator Scotty Sire and recent Songland contestant and songwriter CORii. “Say” is another quality release.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
DYLAN – “Good Enough” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance

It was good enough for some Spotify editorial love and it’s also good enough for the weekly Rewind report: 20-year-old Dylan has a winner with the newest cut from her forthcoming EP titled Red, out May 29. I look forward to hearing the last two songs on the set.

PICK OF THE WEEK: THREE
JAMIE SCOTT – “Friendly Fire” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance

Scott’s awesome music and fantastic songwriting have been a part of my life since 2011, especially the singles off Grafitti6’s Colours album and his 2014 solo outing My Hurricane, along with his various co-writes for other artists. This track is a very pleasant listen.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
ANSON SEABRA – “Hindenburg Lover”
BEN KESSLER – “Just Wanna Be Your Friend”
FLY BY MIDNIGHT – “LA Lonely”
KEVIN GARRETT – “It’s Gonna Be Me”
KODALINE – “Saving Grace”
WRABEL – “Somebody New”
