RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 9/11 – 9/17

Record Rewind - September 18, 2016

Our new Record Rewind is about highlighting the top new songs that you may have missed, or should discover, from many of my favorite independent acts out there. If you like what you see, let me know what you think!

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

_____

CAPPA – “Hey Hi Hello” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Bonjour and hola to another fun song from this Nashville singer, featured on her recent EP release titled Queen Of Hearts. She’s certainly been the Queen of the Rewind recently, with several cuts included to date. What are you waiting for? Check out her EP.

_____

EZA – “Sway” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Also adding to the abundance of Nashville pop this week is a cut from the scintillating and sensual Dead Reckoning EP, the latest set of songs from performer Ellery Bonham. It’s truly a great body of work. Look out for the sweat pouring out of your speakers.

_____

JUNIOR PROM – “You, Me, And Joe Strummer” (iTunes) (Spotify)
True story: I originally heard this song back in February 2015 when I was consulting at Atlantic Records, and this act, which was a duo at the time, was signed to sister label Elektra. Times have changed, but the track is still excellent, and I absolutely support it!

_____

MILLINGTON – “Being” (iTunes) (Spotify)
The only international singer in this week’s review is a great discovery from Melbourne, Australia. Tom Millington combines pop and world sounds to create this upbeat stomper, which was written about the joys of his daughter’s birth. Very sweet thing to do!

_____

ROZES – “Under The Grave” (iTunes) (Spotify)
During the summer, the Philadelphia singer dropped “Hangin’ On”, which continues to see some action from a set of remixes. On Friday, “Under” was released, an electronic pop single that sounds like it’s bound for radio play. Will it bloom beyond the blogs?

_____

SLOW SUGAR – “Pieces” (iTunes) (Spotify)
In early August, I covered this New York duo and their track “Hypnotic Love”, which was a great debut. Now, Danielle Harris and Alex Utay return with another solid indie pop song, full of dream and ethereal influences. Check out that wordplay in the chorus.

_____

For more new music, these tunes are worth a listen…
ADAM SAMPLE – “Weekend” (SoundCloud)
AIRPLANE MAN – “Take Me All The Way Home” (SoundCloud)
JAMES DROLL – “Sleepwalker” (SoundCloud)
