RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Eighteen

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!

_____

PICK OF THE WEEK: ONE
FINNEAS – “I Lost A Friend” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: 11th appearance

He’s one of the most consistent performers on the weekly recap post, so it’s no surprise that the newest track by Finneas is included in this weekend’s review. The tender pop ballad turned powerful rock stomper is another emotional one, but a really excellent song.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
LO LO – “Stay Up” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Third appearance

It’s been a couple of months since the Canadian performer appeared on the Rewind with the title cut from Sweater Collection, a set that came out last Friday. Combining playful pop production and great lyrics, it’s easy to hear why this nine-track album is so great.

PICK OF THE WEEK: THREE
WRABEL – “The Real Thing” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fourth appearance

Since going independent, singer and songwriter Stephen Wrabel has enjoyed a number of songs making the Rewind post, including this track that was released on Friday. The soulful pop/rock ballad includes some interesting production and a really relatable lyric.

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
BRASKO featuring SAINT PRESSURE – “Lipstick Stains”
DES ROCS – “SLO”
DRUMAQ – “Insecurities”
KIM PETRAS – “Got My Number”

NIGHTTIME CROWD featuring SAM FISCHER – “Shadows Will Fall”

_____

Notes: Burns’s Seven Scenes From The Same Summer from earlier this year is a glorious pop set and this great tune is a winner too.

_____

Previously on the Rewind: First appearance
