RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Thirty Nine


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
PETER THOMAS – “If You’re Happy Now” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fourth appearance

Underrated pop songwriter and performer Thomas has a history of making fantastic music and his artist project has produced even more cool songs since the summer. This one, a mellow 80’s soft pop-influenced tune, certainly makes us happy that it was released.

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
ALLIE X – “Fresh Laundry”
DELANEY JANE – “Safe With You”
KATELYN TARVER – “Cynical”
LAUREN SANDERSON – “Hotel Room”
LOWEN – “Only In My Dreams”
STEFAN BENZ – “Get Over You”
TESSA VIOLET – “Games”

RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Thirty Three

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
BLAKE ROSE – “Heavy Sh*t” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fifth appearance

Blooming onto another edition of the Rewind, this Rose is already firmly rooted among my favorite independent performers during the last year. Luckily, he pours out another nice tune with this edgier sound, which wouldn’t sound out of place at Alternative radio.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
BRUCE WIEGNER – “Malicious” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance

With his first track to make the weekly Rewind since March, Wiegner debuts a new single that may have a harmful title, but it won’t be destroying anything in the immediate vicinity (other than some future damage on the charts.) It might be his best solo cut so far.

PICK OF THE WEEK: THREE
WRABEL – “Magic” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Sixth appearance

From a major label performer to making major records as an independent artist, this multi-talented guy scores another appearance on the Rewind with a magical new release that’s among the best singles of the week. The smooth R&B-influenced sound is real cool.

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
BENEDICT CORK – “Boys Don’t Cry”
CAL – “My Brother”
GABRIELLE APLIN & JP COOPER – “Losing Me”
JACKSON HARRIS – “Something To Believe In”
SAM TINNESZ – “We’re Gonna Make It”
STEFAN BENZ – “Cool 4 Me”
VÉRITÉ – “Ocean”
ZAYDE WØLF – “Rumble”
