RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 7/23 – 7/29/17

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…

_____

PHANGS – “I Think I’m In Love?” (iTunes) (Spotify)
This week’s Nashville lovefest begins with my favorite song from an EP that came out on Friday titled Get In My Arms, which you’ll need to get in your ears as soon as you’re done reading this. Jake Germany has a good thing going with his solo project. Great stuff!

_____

QUINN LEWIS – “Slipping” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Originally from Brisbane, now based in Nashville, this performer is enjoying his first appearance on the Rewind, though I did enjoy the title song from his EP Addicted quite a bit last fall. Lewis won’t be slipping off my radar anytime soon; his new pop bop is great.

_____

WHISSELL – “Living Now” (iTunes) (Spotify)
I’ve certainly enjoyed a lot of new music from Lauren Whistle this year, including her EP Old Souls, Young Bodies in January and a pack of three additional stand-alone singles since the late spring. She delivers on another well-crafted production and melody here.

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
CLUB DRIVE – “International” (SoundCloud)
FJØRA – “Zodiac” (SoundCloud)
JAMES CHERRY – “On My Mind” (SoundCloud)
SUPER DUPER featuring LOUIS JOHNSON – “Second Chances” (SoundCloud)

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!

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 7/9 – 7/15/17

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…

_____

AARON TAOS – “Not Over Yet” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Taos is certainly making his mark on the Rewind this year, having previously been featured with a pair of top tracks: “Off My Mind” in January and “These Days” in May. As the title says, his days of my enjoying his tunes are not over yet, as he releases another bop.

_____

JOHN SPLITHOFF featuring MADISON RYANN WARD – “Show Me” (iTunes) (Spotify)
It’s been over a year since Splithoff released his last new single, the smooth and delectable “Sing To You”, which has now achieved a super impressive 20 million streams on Spotify. This R&B-influenced pop collaboration steers him in a fresh, but lovable, direction.

_____

ZAYDE WØLF – “Brave” (iTunes) (Spotify)
This Nashville singer and songwriter last appeared on the Rewind about a year ago, but several tracks from 2016’s Golden Age were featured on PGTC’s Spotify playlists. The anthemic pop cut has a nice hook and some cool builds in production. It’s a winner to me!

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
ANDREW BELLE – “Honey And Milk” (SoundCloud)
TRENTON – “In The Summer Light” (SoundCloud)

This week proved to be a slow one as far as finding new music and artists to spotlight, especially due to the Fourth of July holiday. I considered skipping the Rewind for a week, but that’s not really fair to the songs I did find, is it? So, I’ll let the music speak for itself this week, without the commentary, and if you have any comments, let me know. Thanks! Happy Sunday!

_____

CAPE FRANCIS – “Iditarod” (iTunes) (Spotify)

OFELIA K – “Bad Boys (Février 17)” (iTunes) (Spotify)

SAM TINNESZ featuring YACHT MONEY – “Play With Fire” (iTunes) (Spotify)

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

_____

FJØRA – “Wild Animals” (iTunes) (Spotify)
This female newcomer was first spotted late last year on our listen through the annual Nashville Indie Spotlight sampler, which has a lot of talent for one set. “Wild” glides its way through the Top 40 landscape, delivering a fun and familiar sound in the blog world.

_____

MYZICA – “Higher Places” (iTunes) (Spotify)
This Nashville duo (Isaaca Byrd and Micah Tawlks) was last noted on the Rewind in August of last year with an Ezra Carey-assisted cover of “Drive”, one of my favorite hits from The Cars. “Higher” brings out the enchanting nostalgia of mid-to-late 90’s alternative.

_____

TIPLING ROCK – “Staring” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Summer sounds so good, now that our favorite Boston college band is back with another psychedelic pop gem for your current pool party playlist. The beachy feel of this guitar-driven track is effortless, and consistent with their catalog thus far. Jump in and enjoy!

_____

WANDERER – “We Were So Young” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Wandering back onto the Rewind with his first original single since November of last year is Tempe-based singer/songwriter Adam Simons, who gets us reminiscing about the simplicity of summer days from years ago. It is especially good for the end of the season.

_____

COURTSHIP. – “Perfect People” (iTunes) (Spotify)
The Los Angeles duo of Eli Hirsch and Micah Gordon continues to craft excellent cuts for the blog world, with “Love For Everyone” and “Sunroof” among my favorites from them. “Perfect” has a lovely nostalgic feel, sounding like a nod to late 70’s California rock.

_____

KAPTAN – “Better” (iTunes) (Spotify)
I’ve been a big supporter of Andrew de Torres’s current project on the blog for a couple of years now, though he hasn’t appeared in a Rewind post since “Numbers” in July 2016. Well, you can re-examine those numbers now, as his alternative pop jam gets started.

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

_____

MARTIN LUKE BROWN – “Into Yellow” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Brown’s been a favorite on both the blog and my chart for nearly three years, with songs like “Nostalgia” and “Take Out Of Me” still getting a fair amount of listening on my media player of choice. The ethereal pop track proves to be a very special musical moment.

_____

WHISSELL – “Been Here Before” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Here’s the Nashville performer who, much like her song title, has been here before on several occasions. In fact, the excellent “Legs Crossed” was featured on the Rewind last month. In the evolution of this lovely artist, this and “Legs” deliver some radio potential.

_____

WYLDER – “Save A Way” (iTunes) (Spotify)
This Washington, D.C.-based quartet looks a little different from when they were last featured on our feed, but their first new song in over a year is a good companion to their summer indie pop anthem “Sunstroke”, released in 2015. This guitar-driven track rules!

_____

For more great new music, these tunes are worth a listen…
Johnny Stimson – “Honeymoon” (SoundCloud)
Nicholas Roberts – “Before You Go” (SoundCloud)
