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”
VINCINT – “Remember Me”

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, February 18-24, 2018

_____

AARON TAOS – “Amazing” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: six previous appearances, “Twisted” (December 2017) being the most recent feature
Notes: Taos’s first of what will likely be plenty of 2018 singles to make PGTC’s report begins on a great note, with New Music Friday lists managed by Spotify’s Canada, Italy and the Netherlands affiliates adding it into the mix. Make sure to check out the cool video!

_____

LUKR – “Astronaut” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: four previous appearances, “The Future” (November 2017) being the most recent feature
Notes: Spotify’s New Music Friday playlists were also good to this Nashville performer, a frequent find on our Friday Faves and The New Nashville lists. On Friday, he found love from the Germany, Italy and Schweiz curators. In the pop blog galaxy, it’s flying high!

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 1/15 – 1/21/17

Record Rewind - January 22, 2017

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…

_____

CASTLECOMER – “If I Could Be Like You” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Sydney’s smashing Alternative quintet keeps on making great music, with this song being one of their more accessible tracks to date. I guess it’s because you can both rock out and dance to it, which is always a good thing. The catchy jam is ready to make some moves.

_____

KEVIN GARRETT – “Strangehold” (iTunes) (Spotify)
A surprise release from New York’s Garrett, still making quite a name for himself in the blog and streaming worlds, gives us another great entry this week. The soulful sound of Garrett’s vocals and musicality is so enticing that you’ll be wishing for more. I know I am.

_____

MAX AND THE MOON – “Killing Time” (iTunes) (Spotify)
It’s a bittersweet moment for this Rewind entry, as the Los Angeles quartet is going their separate ways. However, their last single is actually my favorite of theirs, ironically enough, combining anthemic rock and pop into a lush sound for their fans. We’ll miss them.

_____

REYNA – “Matinee” (iTunes) (Spotify)
This Milwaukee duo came onto the PGTC radar in the spring of last year with a song called “Ink On My Skin”, which is closing in on a solid 200,000 streams on Spotify. Their latest guitar-driven single digs into some late 80’s roots, inspiring one smooth pop dream.

For more great new music, these tunes are worth a listen…
AUGUST – “Ghosts” (SoundCloud)
Eliason – “Heaven Knows” (SoundCloud)
Hundred Handed – “Vibe” (SoundCloud)
Pierre Stemmett – “Unfair” (SoundCloud)
Sabrina Parker – “Write You Down” (SoundCloud)
Sam Seg – “Lover” (SoundCloud)
