RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, June 10 – 16, 2018

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 independe2nt songs of the week…

_____

ALY & AJ – “Good Love” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Three previous appearances, including “Take Me” (August 2017) and “I Know” (November 2017)
Notes: After a short break following their awesome EP from last year, these sisters return with another quality 80’s-influenced jam.

_____

BETTY WHO – “Just Thought You Should Know” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Three previous appearances, including “Ignore Me” (January 2018) and “Look Back” (March 2018)
Notes: For one of this week’s best EP releases, check out Who’s fantastic five-track set. Opener “Know” is a lovely retro-tinged song.

_____

PETER THOMAS with LELAND – “Run Away With Me” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance / Two previous appearances, now signed to Vertigo Berlin (Universal Music – Germany)
Notes: With their darker and more electronic reinterpretation of a Carly Rae Jepsen classic, these talented guys still serve up a bop!

EIGHTY NINETY – “Dream”
FINNEAS – “Landmine”
JAMES DROLL – “Twist My Arm”

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 9/3 – 9/9/17

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…

_____

CAPE CUB – “Flowers” (iTunes) (Spotify)
It feels like we’ve been waiting forever for the return of Chad Male and Cape Cub, with his most recent tunes dropping in November of last year on an EP called 6am. With “Flowers” firmly in bloom, the radio potential on this electropop release is certainly growing.

_____

MATT WOODS – “Craving” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Serving vocals and giving me life once more, Woods’s second single from his forthcoming EP, and the follow-up to “Nervous”, has a way of pulling you in and sticking around in your brain. He effortlessly glides through this smooth neo soul single. It is really lovely.

_____

UNION MOON – “Red Bow” (iTunes) (Spotify)
This is the first time on the Rewind for Union Moon, though his pack of three singles to date is pretty good. If you know the work of The Fray, then you may already be aware that this is member Joe King’s solo effort. “Red” is a solid pick for an early morning listen.

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
DANIELLA MASON – “Cover The Earth” (SoundCloud)
FINNEAS – “I’m In Love Without You” (SoundCloud)
LELAND featuring ALLIE X – “Mattress (Valley Girl Remix)” (SoundCloud)

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 7/16 – 7/22/17

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…

_____

EMILY WARREN – “Something To Hold On To” (iTunes) (Spotify)
After enjoying Warren’s previous single from May, “Hurt By You”, I’m just as impressed with the follow-up single, a powerful ballad that balances its tender moments with more dramatic ones. It is time for Warren to shine as a solo artist, and this could do the trick.

_____

LELAND – “Mattress” (iTunes) (Spotify)
From Daya to Selena Gomez to Troye Sivan, singer and songwriter Brett McLaughlin’s been on quite the hot streak as of late. This is the pop bop you need in your life this weekend in all its slick and sensual glory. It certainly deserves to be a streaming and radio hit!
