RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Four

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
ASHLEY TISDALE – “Love Me & Let Me Go” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance

Former Disney star Tisdale last appeared on the report in November when her original track “Voices In My Head” was released to a fairly good reception. Her follow-up song, though not as successful commercially, is a nice electronic pop addition to her collection.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
FRANKIE – “Lost In Translation” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Third appearance

Just ahead of her forthcoming EP STA7GES, due next month, this performer has another great pop sound on her hands. Other cuts on the set include “When I’m Ready” and “You Decided”, both of which landed on the report last fall. Translation: prepare for bops!

PICK OF THE WEEK: THREE
LAUV & TROYE SIVAN – “I’m So Tired…” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: 14th appearance (Sivan is signed to Capitol Records)

Lauv is definitely in a collaborative mood lately, as the Julia Michaels-assisted “There’s No Way” continues to gain on the pop radio chart, while his release with Sivan makes its debut this week. The short but sweet sound is catchy and the boys sound nice together.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
BRAD O’NEILL featuring JAMES ESSEX – “Wild One”
GIRL WILDE – “Fake Louis”
PETER MANOS – “You Don’t Know Me”
SAARLOOS – “Fire Is Love”
SPAZZ CARDIGAN – “S.O.S.”
THE BAND CAMINO – “Something To Hold On To”

UNSECRET featuring SAM TINNESZ – “Here Come The Warriors”

_____

CHELSEA CUTLER – “Water On The Bridge” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Three previous appearances, most recently “The Reason” (May 2018)

Previously on the Rewind: One previous appearance, “Girlfriend At The Time” (March 2018)
Notes: Ahead of Seven Scenes From The Same Summer, out on July 20, Burns releases one of the catchiest pop singles of the week.

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, March 4-10, 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 independent songs of the week…

_____

BETTY WHO – “Look Back” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: one previous appearance, “Ignore Me” (January 2018); previously signed to RCA Records
Notes: Yes, I know that there’s a certain irony in featuring a track called “Look Back” on a weekend when the U.S. has sprung ahead one hour. However, just as much as “Ignore Me” was a bop, “Look” is an incredibly catchy and delectable piece of pop. Sweet times!

_____

SPAZZ CARDIGAN – “Episode” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First time featured
Notes: This performer has fallen onto my radar through some mutual friends in Nashville, not to mention his song’s prominent add on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist. The production on this R&B-flavored track is tight, and a clever lyric definitely doesn’t hurt.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
FLETCHER – “I Believe You”
WANDERER – “Miss You More At Night”
