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!
JEFFREY JAMES – “Unsaid” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Fresh off the release of his EP on Friday, Nashville singer James throws it back to the earlier part of the 00’s with this smooth R&B and gospel tune. It’s understated, but really shines when he and a backing choir dive into a powerful hook. Check out the whole set!
LOSTBOYCROW – “Real Name” (iTunes) (Spotify)
You’ve seen this guy all over PGTC and my playlists for some time, so it’s not a surprise that his new song is one of the independent highlights of this week. The electronic-pop song has a nice tropical influence in it, making it a solid choice for your summer playlist.
MAGDALENA BAY – “Set Me Off” (iTunes) (Spotify)
This duo was last featured on the Rewind in January with the single “Neon”, though member Matthew Lewin also plays with a band that was featured last week, Tipling Rock. Future pop meets early 90’s R&B on this energetic release, another hot track for the two.
THE NIGHT GAME – “The Outfield” (iTunes) (Spotify)
When we think of outfields, we usually think of the English group that gave us bops like “Your Love” and “Voices Of Babylon”. That being said, this track called “The Outfield” is a home run, especially if it’s already achieving New Music Friday list adds. Great work!
For more great new music, these tunes are worth a listen…

Lovespeake featuring Max Frost – “Novocaine” (SoundCloud)
