RECORD REWIND 2020: PGTC Picks, Week Twenty 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
GRIFFIN OSKAR – “Answer” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance

Singer and songwriter Oskar is back with the follow-up to “We Don’t Get High (Like We Used To)”, a track that was featured on the Rewind in April. Co-written with Isaiah Tejada, known for his work with Britney Spears and Maroon 5, Oskar’s got another winner.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
JOHN SPLITHOFF – “Go Somewhere” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Third appearance

This artist has been off the Rewind for a few years during his time with Warner Music’s East West label, where he released an EP in 2018 and some assorted tracks. Now, back with a self-released project, Splithoff delivers another smooth musical trip for your ears.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
BRONZE AVERY – “Only You”
JOY OLADOKUN – “Who Do I Turn To?”
NICK WILSON – “Safe”
TRELLA – “Fumes”

RECORD REWIND 2020: PGTC Picks, Week Twenty Two

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

You may remember Cal Shapiro as one half of the Boston duo Timeflies, who scored a minor top 40 single on the pop radio chart in 2016 with “Once In A While” and released their most recent track in early 2019. The lighter piano pop tune is a very pleasant listen.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
STELA COLE – “Goldrush” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Third appearance

Eureka! We’ve found it! Actually, we’ve known about Cole and her musical metals for some time now: her last two singles, “Woman Of The Hour” and “Love Like Mine”, were included on the Rewind earlier this year. Unsurprisingly, this song is a nice pop treasure.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
DYLAN – “Guilty”
ELIO – “LA In Two”
JOY OLADOKUN – “Breathe Again”
PHOEBE RYAN – “Reality”
POLLY MONEY – “Astrid”
THE BLOSSOM – “Won’t Leave My Bedroom”
THE WLDLFE – “New Age Meds”
