RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 3/26 – 4/1/17

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…
_____

NELLY FURTADO – “Sticks And Stones” (iTunes) (Spotify)
“What? She’s back?” Yes, she is, and she’s going the independent route this time. This set is pretty raw at times, but it also feels like a true artistic record. Of course, I feel that Jamie Scott can do wrong, and this wouldn’t sound out of place on Graffiti6’s second album.

_____

NICK WILSON – “Bare” (iTunes) (Spotify)
At the beginning of the year, I heard a really interesting remake of Ariana Grande’s “Into You” performed by this U.K. singer, and I’m glad I took down the name. This original song is a very solid indie pop track, influenced by a funky guitar line and synthpop elements.

_____

VÉRITÉ – “When You’re Gone” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Streaming darling Kelsey Byrne has been slaying major playlists effortlessly across a number of services in the past few months, with her latest tune receiving adds on some prominent lists focused on new releases. The edgy pop winner is bold, but quite hooky as well.

_____

For more great new music, these tunes are worth a listen…
Bantug – “Just Like A Dream” (SoundCloud)
Bruno Major – “Second Time” (SoundCloud)
Jesse Hale Moore – “Ringing In Your Ears” (SoundCloud)

NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of March 31, 2017

Black is back.

We’ve made it through a quarter of the year, and the hits just keep on coming in this week’s report. Let’s check out all the action right here:

KODAK BLACK – Painting Pictures (iTunes)
The 19-year-old Florida performer is riding the success of the viral hit “Tunnel Vision” with his debut album, which follows his set of mixtapes over the last few years. The song just impacted at Urban radio, and should be charting rather soon. With a healthy amount of sale and stream equivalent units being added to its total, it should have a large debut on the album survey next week.

TRACE ADKINS – Something’s Going On (iTunes)
This is the fifteenth studio album for the Country star, who made his debut in 1996 and topped the chart with tracks like “(This Ain’t) No Thinkin’ Thing” and “You’re Gonna Miss This”. His current album features the song “Watered Down”, which is in the lower rungs of the survey. Look for it somewhere in the top 40.

LA’PORSHA RENAE – Already All Ready (iTunes)
Former American Idol runner-up Renae is out with her debut album, which features the top ten Urban AC hit “Good Woman”. It’s at #9 currently. Though the buzz from the show is largely gone, there should still be some interest in the release.

More albums out this week: Aimee Mann‘s Mental Illness (iTunes), Bob Dylan‘s Triplicate (iTunes), Fleetwood Mac‘s Tango In The Night (Deluxe) (iTunes), Goldfrapp‘s Silver Eye (iTunes), Jackie Evancho‘s Two Hearts (iTunes), Jamiroquai‘s Automaton (iTunes), Jennifer Paige‘s Starflower (iTunes), MercyMe‘s Lifer (iTunes), Nelly Furtado‘s The Ride (iTunes), Phantoms‘s Phantoms (iTunes)
