RECORD REWIND 2019: 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!

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
BENEDICT CORK – “Breaking Hearts” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Third appearance

One of the sweetest voices in soft pop as of recent returns to the Rewind for his third time with another gorgeous tune. Cork, who is currently based in London, hits all the right notes with an emotional vocal and tender sound. It continues to be a good year for him.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
KIM PETRAS – “Do Me” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Tenth appearance

Yes, you’ve been seeing a lot of Kim Petras tunes on here lately, so why not add one more to the mix? (Hey, I can’t help it if she’s out with some great music.) No need to worry, R&B fans, Petras isn’t remaking a certain Bell Biv DeVoe song: this is a pure pop winner.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
KYAN PALMER & NICOPOP. featuring JOHNNY MAC – “What U Like”
MOLLY KATE KESTNER – “My Way Up”
RYAN PULFORD – “Hurts To Fall”
SPENCER BARNETT – “Reckless”
VÉRITÉ – “Gone”
XYLØ“Yes & No”

RECORD REWIND 2019: 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
FINNEAS – “I Lost A Friend” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: 11th appearance

He’s one of the most consistent performers on the weekly recap post, so it’s no surprise that the newest track by Finneas is included in this weekend’s review. The tender pop ballad turned powerful rock stomper is another emotional one, but a really excellent song.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
LO LO – “Stay Up” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Third appearance

It’s been a couple of months since the Canadian performer appeared on the Rewind with the title cut from Sweater Collection, a set that came out last Friday. Combining playful pop production and great lyrics, it’s easy to hear why this nine-track album is so great.

PICK OF THE WEEK: THREE
WRABEL – “The Real Thing” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fourth appearance

Since going independent, singer and songwriter Stephen Wrabel has enjoyed a number of songs making the Rewind post, including this track that was released on Friday. The soulful pop/rock ballad includes some interesting production and a really relatable lyric.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
BRASKO featuring SAINT PRESSURE – “Lipstick Stains”
DES ROCS – “SLO”
DRUMAQ – “Insecurities”
KIM PETRAS – “Got My Number”
KYAN PALMER x NICOPOP. – “Headcase”
NIGHTTIME CROWD featuring SAM FISCHER – “Shadows Will Fall”
STEFAN ALEXANDER – “Thunderclap”
TESSA VIOLET – “I Like (The Idea Of) You”
WYLDER – “Ghosts”

RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Ten

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 WIEGNER – “IDK” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance

Wiegner makes the Rewind for the first time, though he first came onto my radar a few months back with a solid track titled “Better Off This Way” (as The Weekend Riot) and co-writes for acts like Annalia and Gatsby. IDK what you think, but I’m enjoying this cut.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
KYAN PALMER & NICOPOP. featuring YURI JONESS – “Antisocial Socialites” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Third appearance, second appearance, first appearance

Of the three artists combining their talents for this single, Palmer returns to the Rewind with his first track since “Pretend That You Love Me” from last September, one of the great cuts from on his set Burn Mona Lisa. This collaboration is a groovy throwback jam.

PICK OF THE WEEK: THREE
LO LO – “Sweater Collection” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance

The Canadian soloist that gave us the great pop bop “Convenient” last year, as well as the minor radio hit “Yours” up north, gets her second appearance on the Rewind with a fashionable single that’s just the right fit. The sound is familiar, but it’s irresistibly catchy!

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
ADAM MELCHOR – “Plan On You”
DENNY WHITE – “Like It Was”
GREYSON CHANCE – “Timekeeper”
