RECORD REWIND 2019: 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
LO LO – “Dancing In The Dark” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fourth appearance

Covering a Bruce Springsteen song successfully is a really tough job, especially one as big as this tune became in 1984. However, the Canadian performer Lo Lo is up for the challenge and passes the test with flying colors. It’s a solid pop reimagining of a rock classic.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
SHY MARTIN – “Same Old” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance

Singer and songwriter Martin has written with top pop talents and sung quite a few great tracks herself, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that her brand new release is here on the Rewind. Following another good single in “Out Of My Hands”, her sound isn’t “Old” at all.

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
CHLOE HOWL – “In The Middle (Sad Banger)”
CHRIS AYER – “Dinosaurs”
EIGHTY NINETY – “10K Summer Nights”
KIM PETRAS – “Clarity”
NAWAS featuring BIG SAM & DA PHESSAH – “Buy My Love”
VINCINT – “Say”
ZAYDE WØLF – “The Boys Of Summer”

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.

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”
