RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 10/16 – 10/22

Record Rewind - October 23, 2016

Our new Record Rewind is about highlighting the top new songs that you may have missed, or should discover, from many of my favorite independent acts out there. If you like what you see, let me know what you think!

Across the PGTC SoundCloud page and my playlists on Spotify, these stuck out as my favorite independent songs of the week…

_____

BEN HOBBS – “Take The Blame” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Hobbs last appeared on the Rewind two months ago with the song “Animals”, which had a good time in the musical zoo that we call the blog world. Sometimes you don’t know what you’ll get in that jungle of jams, but his consistent output this year is simply great.

_____

JEFFREY JAMES – “Both Ways” (iTunes) (Spotify)
James recently joined the roster of hot Nashville label South By Sea, and while his Walls EP (released back in April) was a solid set of songs, “Both” is a tasty tune that’s bound to expand his audience. With slick production and strong writing, it’s a winner for me.

_____

LAUV – “The Story Never Ends (Piano Version)” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Surprise! Just in case “Breathe” wasn’t enough for you this month, the latest track from Los Angeles singer and songwriter Ari Leff is a powerful piano ballad that recently aired during an episode of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy. Warning: the feels are real. Get a tissue.

_____

LOSTBOYCROW – “Stay A Little Longer” (iTunes) (Spotify)
This Los Angeles singer was on one of the first Rewinds in June with “Where It All Goes”, and where he keeps going is up! His new single has a very accessible sound that I feel could be a great opportunity for a sync. Can’t wait to watch this track fly up the charts!

_____

MARK ELLIOTT – “China Doll”
Elliott’s been on my radar since earlier this year, and I really enjoyed his summer single, the clever “Drink To Thunk”. Now, it’s the R&B-flavored “China” that returns him to the Rewind, the title track from his forthcoming EP. The full set should be a good listen.

_____

MATT WOODS – “Nothing Less” (iTunes) (Spotify)
How can you not love Woods’s voice? He makes it sound so effortless. The soulful London singer has way too many amazing songs to start listing them all, but they include “In The Dark”, “Impression” and “Ain’t No Use”. He has another excellent electronic tune.

_____

For more great new music, these tunes are worth a listen…
CAMERON JONES – “Rose” (SoundCloud)
JON SANTANA featuring JOHN DAVIS – “Falling Down” (SoundCloud)
LONDUN – “Used To” (SoundCloud)

Chart Notes:

  • Last week’s top new entry is now the Biggest Mover of the week, “Uh Huh”, by newcomer ROMANS. It leaps 36-28 on the chart and looks like it could be top ten bound next month. Other notable movers on the survey include “The Book Of Love” by Gavin James, climbing 13-7, and “Trust You” from Rob Thomas, up 39-33. James’s song is his first entry on my list, while Thomas’s hit is his 22nd to reach my chart.
  • This week’s Highest Debut is from a singer who was born in my home state: Massachusetts. Matt Nathanson is back with a great song for season, “Gold In The Summertime”, new at #39 this week. The singer originally from Lexington, but now a San Francisco, California resident, is looking for his third #1 on my top 40. His first two were “Car Crash” and “Faster”.
  • With two hits on this week’s survey, Tori Kelly may be falling with “Nobody Love”, but she debuts at #40 with the second single from Unbreakable Smile, “Should’ve Been Us”. It was the Most Added track on CHR radio during the past week, but with an unusually low total of 27 adds. The 22-year-old’s album is due out on June 23.

Chart Notes:

  • Several newcomers have made it to the top this year and latest to do so is the trio Jukebox The Ghost, who fly 5-1 with a song called “Postcard”. That leap marks the biggest climb into the top spot since September 2012, when “Hall Of Fame” by The Script and will.i.am made a move of 6-1. The Washington, D.C. act has been together for over a decade, but this hit lands them their first single to make my top 40 thanks to a recent album reissue and radio push earlier this month.
  • This week’s Highest Debut is also from a newcomer, ROMANS. You may remember his collaboration with Naughty Boy called “Home”, when he was credited as Sam Romans, though it fell short of my top 40. The singer was born in the English town of Pinner. A handful of top 40 artists were also born there, including Charlie Dore (best known for 1980’s “Pilot Of The Airwaves”) and, most notably, pop superstar Elton John. “Uh Huh” bows in at #36.
  • In January 2006, a teenager from Buffalo, NY made his chart debut with a single called “For You I Will (Confidence)”. The song peaked at #15, and was followed by “These Walls”, which reached #3. However, Teddy Geiger fell off the radar very quickly afterwards. Now, he’s making a comeback as a songwriter, co-writing this week’s #38 entry, “Stitches”, by Vine star and singer Shawn Mendes. It’s his second top 40 hit here.
  • There’s only one act on the chart this week that was also present on my first official chart in September 1999. Back then, he was the featured vocalist on Santana‘s “Smooth”. Now, he debuts with tenth solo hit and his twenty-second overall with a catalog of huge songs with Matchbox Twenty. It’s Rob Thomas and his latest at #39, “Trust You”. His new album, The Great Unknown, will be released later this year.
  • Recent American Idol winner Nick Fradiani has the last of the four entries on the survey with “Beautiful Life”, coming in at #40. He’s a 2008 graduate of the college I once attended, Wheaton College in Norton, MA, though he was gone before I came in that fall as a freshman. It’s still a first for my chart. “Beautiful” is the fifth coronation song by a winner to reach my top 40.

Chart Notes:

  • Two songs tie for the Biggest Mover this week: Sam Hunt‘s recent #1 on country radio is up six spaces to #27. “Take Your Time” is currently being promoted to CHR and Hot AC radio via Capitol Records, and while the single is currently charting at the latter format, it has yet to debut on the former. Also up six, from 39-33, is “The Book Of Love” from Irish newcomer Gavin James. That title was also a hit on the Hot 100 (#5) for a totally different song by The Monotones in 1958.
  • This week’s Highest Debut marks the fifth chart single for former American Idol contestant Adam Lambert. He comes in at #36 with “Ghost Town”, the leadoff release from his forthcoming third studio album, The Original High, due June 16. It was the second most added song on CHR radio during last week. Lambert’s first entry remains his biggest so far, the chart-topping “Whataya Want From Me”, a two-week #1 from April 2010.
  • They’ve been up and down the chart with their former #1, “Shut Up And Dance”, for 34 weeks now. Of course, the record is a much higher total for the most weeks on my top 40, but Walk The Moon‘s certainly got one of the biggest tracks of this year. Their followup, “Different Colors”, debuts this week at #40. It’s already got the support of SiriusXM’s Alt Nation.

Chart Notes:

  • In the 1980’s, a California band named The Motels had a string of four top 40 songs, including two top tens: 1982’s “Only The Lonely” and 1983’s “Suddenly Last Summer”. Three decades later, another California band called Saint Motel brings the word back and sings the words on this week’s new #1 song, “My Type”. The track is currently rising towards the top ten on Alternative radio and has some good crossover potential this summer.
  • Up nine notches to #25 is this week’s Biggest Mover, trio Jukebox The Ghost’s “Postcard”. It’s their first top 40 release and can be found on their self-titled album. Though the volume of postcards sent through the mail has decreased over time thanks to email and social media, you can still buy packs of them for use. I’m sure the three guys would appreciate some.
  • This week’s Highest Debut is from newcomer Gavin James, a 23-year-old from Dublin, Ireland who comes in at #39 with “The Book Of Love”. The song was originally recorded by Boston band The Magnetic Fields in 1999, and many covers of it have been issued throughout the years. James’s version is currently a hit in Belgium and The Netherlands.
  • Also debuting this week is another new act, Jakubi, a five-piece Australian group based in Melbourne. They’re new at #40 with “Couch Potato”. In a week, the five men begin a West Coast tour before making stops in the Midwest and Northeast in late May and June. A video clip for the song recently debuted.

Chart Notes:

  • In his fifth week on the chart, Martin Luke Brown reclaims the title of Biggest Mover with “Take Out Of Me”, up 22-16. You’ll be able to purchase Brown’s debut EP, named after his latest single, within the next week in most countries. Brown’s former top ten entry, “Nostalgia”, drops four notches to #38 this week as it hits the half-year mark at 26 weeks on. Way to go, Martin! Look for more new music later this year.
  • Remember this post of a month ago where I predicted six Country hits that could make the jump to pop radio? Well, guess I made some guesses. Two of those tracks climb aboard this week, including Sam Hunt‘s “Take Your Time”, in at #39. It is the first chart single for Hunt, who claims this week’s #1 single at the radio format. He previously led on that survey last year with “Leave The Night On”.
  • Also debuting this week is the second crossover single to make my chart for the duo Florida Georgia Line. Bowing in at #40, it’s “Sun Daze”. Last time around, they hit #3 with “Cruise” in a remix with rapper Nelly. The two are currently up in the top ten on the Country chart with “Sippin’ On Fire”.
  • Next week may see a debut from Adam Lambert and his new single, “Ghost Town”, as an instant impact, but how will he do against newcomers like Gavin James and Jakubi? Stay tuned!

Chart Notes:

  • Though the pace of the chart this week is noticeably slower overall, several songs register moderate-sized moves. Leading the way is “In The Dark” by Matt Woods. After debuting last week at #37, he climbs to #31, a gain of six notches. His EP is out in two weeks, though “Dark” is available for purchase now. Just behind Woods’s hit are “Crave” by Parachute (40-35) and “Teach Me How To Dance With You” by Causes (34-29) with leaps of five spots on the countdown.
  • The highest of the week’s two debuts is in at #38 for Brandon Flowers and “Can’t Deny My Love”, the first release from his forthcoming second solo album, The Desired Effect. The track looks to push into the top 40 on the Alternative survey in the coming days. It was five years ago that Flowers spent three weeks at the top on my list with the amazing “Crossfire”. We’ll have to wait and see if his latest can do the same.
  • Also debuting this week is the latest top 40 hit from MIKA, “Talk About You”, in at #39. The singer and songwriter made his first appearance on my chart in late 2006 with the song “Grace Kelly”, which peaked at #10 for several weeks in 2007. “Talk” is the leadoff single from No Place In Heaven, due in June, though it’s not available as a pre-order here just yet.
