RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Twenty

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
PRETTY SISTER – “Kingdom In The Valley” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Sixth appearance

It’s been a minute since Zak Waters’s project last appeared on the Rewind, though he managed to put three singles in the recap last year, including “New Fire” and “Tension”. This bouncy funk release has a fun early 80’s synth-pop influence that’s pretty awesome.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
XYLØ – “Ride Or Die” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fourth appearance

Meanwhile, Paige Duddy’s solo records as XYLØ have been included here a handful of times since going independent, much of that material coming from her EP called Pretty Sad from March. This ride might be a mellower one, but we’re up for the passenger seat.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
ADAM LAMBERT, “New Eyes”
ALEC BAILEY, “Flowerbomb”
KIM PETRAS, “Sweet Spot”
LUKR, “Come Thru”
NUUXS, “Safe”
PHOEBE RYAN, “A Thousand Ways”
RUTHANNE, “Superman”
RYANN, “JFK”
SAM TINNESZ featuring BUILT BY TITAN, “Run With The Giants”
TOP BUNK, “Calm Me Down”

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…

_____

BLAKE ROSE – “Hotel Room” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance
Notes: Known for a few dance and electronic collaborations, Australia’s Rose and his edgy pop release are certainly winners for me.

_____

FLY BY MIDNIGHT – “You Belong” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fifth appearance
Notes: The New York City duo is certainly flying with the latest single from their forthcoming set Rerunning, a dreamy pop delight.

_____

LIV MIRALDI – “Chromatic” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance
Notes: In June, Miraldi made her debut on the Rewind with a cool cover of the 2002 hit “Dilemma”. This tune is another great bop.

_____

PRETTY SISTER – “My Jam” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance
Notes: After burning onto the Rewind in July with “New Fire”, the talented performer throws it back with a 90’s R&B-inspired jam.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
ALLIE X – “Can’t Stop Now”
CHELSEA CUTLER – “AF1s”
DES ROCS – “The Past Has Passed Away”
MARC SCIBILIA – “Life In My Bones”
WHISSELL – “I’m A Woman”

_____

FINNEAS – “Hollywood Forever” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Five previous appearances
Notes: This performer returns with another classic ballad that wouldn’t sound out of place on your local AM pop station circa 1975.

_____

KYAN PALMER – “Make It Up” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance
Notes: Known for his 2017 streaming hit “Burn Mona Lisa”, Palmer treats us to a slick R&B and pop release with a radio-ready feel.

_____

PRETTY SISTER featuring MARCLO – “New Fire” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Three previous appearances / First appearance
Notes: For the hottest new jack swing smash on the schedule this week, look no further than this collaboration. It’s a fantastic tune.

_____

SPAZZ CARDIGAN – “Over” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Three previous appearances
Notes: This Nashville-based artist gets his fourth Rewind feature of 2018 with another tight production that should perform nicely.

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, May 27 – June 2, 2018

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 independe2nt songs of the week…

_____

EMILY WARREN – “Paranoid” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Two previous appearances, most recently “Something To Hold On To” (July 2017)
Notes: We try not to let the pop paranoia sink in, though we suspect this song is a winner. Warren’s solo releases continue to shine!

_____

LAUV – “Enemies” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Ten previous appearances, most recently “Bracelet” (May 2018)
Notes: You know, we haven’t seen Lauv on the Rewind in… oh, a week! With his playlist era completed, this new tune is a highlight.

_____

LIV MIRALDI – “Dilemma” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance
Notes: Miraldi’s great remake of this massive single from 2002 takes a modern-day R&B classic and turns it into a sugary pop rush.

_____

PRETTY SISTER featuring WHITE GOLD – “Tension” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Two previous appearances, most recently “Thirsty” (November 2016) / First appearance
Notes: No sibling rivalry here! Zak Waters’s first cut in over a year is, by far, the filthiest and funkiest jam in the bunch this Sunday.

_____

R3HAB x QUINN LEWIS – “How You’ve Been” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance / Four previous appearances, most recently “Weekend Luv” (April 2018)
Notes: When PGTC favorite Lewis teams up with one of the hottest DJs/producers around, you know it’s going to be one giant bop!

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
ALLIE X – “Focus”
BETTY WHO – “All Things”
CHELSEA CUTLER – “Someone Else”
FLY BY MIDNIGHT – “All The Feels”
NICHOLAS ROBERTS – “Growing Up”
REYNA – “Baby Forget It”
