RECORD REWIND 2020: PGTC Picks, Week Twenty Four

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
MOKITA – “Bad” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Sixth appearance

Nashville’s John-Luke Carter continues his run of great independent releases with another pop banger. This particular single gets a little help from another frequent face on the Rewind, Los Angeles-based CAPPA, and songwriter Thomas Jones. It’s a summer jam.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
OLI FOX – “Player 2” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance

During his short time with Island Records, the performer’s music was featured several times on our Friday Faves playlist, including cuts like “The Worrying” in November 2018 and “Young” in March 2019. His latest track, a rhythmic pop bop, wins the final round!

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
BEN KESSLER – “No Plans”
CODY FRY – “Thinking About You”
LOLO – “Dead Inside”

PICK OF THE WEEK: ONE
R3HAB x HRVY – “Be Okay” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Seventh appearance (HRVY is signed to Virgin/Capitol)

Both R3HAB and HRVY have had plenty of great tracks included on our Friday Faves list, so combining their talents on one song is obviously a pretty good way to earn a spot on our recap. In an era when we want to be okay ourselves, the song has a good message.

RECORD REWIND 2020: PGTC Picks, Week Thirteen

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
MOKITA & ELLA VOS – “Take It Back” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fourth appearance / Third appearance

You’ll have to take it back to late last year to find the most recent Rewind appearances for these two artists, who were both featured on their respective weeks with collaborative efforts. Now, their new release together is a low key pop bop: a bit simple, but effective.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
NEW RULES – “Pasta” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: first appearance

While we’re craving a nice pasta dish from a fancy restaurant while self-isolating, the new song called “Pasta” is certainly filling too, as this young male group continues to build a passionate fan base with their charm and quality tunes. Our compliments to the chef!

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
KENNEDI – “Apology”
R3HAB & ANDY GRAMMER – “Good Example”
SAM CREIGHTON – “Go To Hell”

PICK OF THE WEEK: ONE
GOLDHOUSE & MOKITA – “I Don’t Wanna Know” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance / Third appearance

After collaborating on several remixes together in the past few years, these two men (who were previously signed to dance-oriented labels and are now independent) have an early gift for the holidays that was recorded for their own artist projects. It’s very smooth.

PICK OF THE WEEK: ONE
MOKITA – “Colorblind” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance

Nashville musician John-Luke Carter was last featured on the Rewind back in December 2016, signing to the electronic music label Armada shortly after that song came out. However, even though his current single is credited as a self-release, it’s still a great track.

KIESZA – “You’re The Best”
LOOTE – “All The F–king Time”

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 12/11 – 12/17

Record Rewind - December 18, 2016

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!

Given the proximity to the holidays and the general lack of new releases, there wasn’t much music to go through this week. As far as next week, it’ll probably be much of the same. So, if this space seems a little lighter, consider it temporary, as I’m excited for all that great music in the works for 2017!

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

_____

BAD WAVE – “Daniel” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Los Angeles’s Tucker Tota and Patrick Hart are the two members of this duo, and had the Rewind existed earlier this year, at least a few of their singles would’ve been in the mix, like “Extraordinary” and “Good Girls”. This is my favorite track from them since then.

_____

FOREIGN AIR – “Caffeine” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Some of us successfully lay off the caffeine in the morning, while others just can’t give it up. As far as this source of “Caffeine”, I will admit that I did take a few sips several mornings ago. The American act has been on my radar before, and this is another solid song.

_____

MOKITA x THE READY SET – “Broken Parts” (iTunes) (Spotify)
It’s been a moment since Jordan Witzigreuter’s The Ready Set last made the CHR/Top 40 radio chart in early 2013, but the singer’s been creating some cool tunes with a few Nashville artists, like John-Luke Carter, better known as Mokita. They make a great team!

_____

For more great new music, these tunes are worth a listen…
BONNIE MCKEE – “Stars In Your Heart” (SoundCloud)
STONE COLD FOX – “Buffalo” (SoundCloud)
