RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 5/7 – 5/13/17

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!

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

_____

AARON TAOS – “These Days” (iTunes) (Spotify)
It’s been nearly four months since Taos last appeared on the Rewind with “Off My Mind”, and this rocker marks a change in musical direction for the Brooklyn-based performer. Luckily, the edgier and guitar-laden indie track brings a great energy to Taos’s catalog.


_____

PAPERWHITE – “Only Us” (iTunes) (Spotify)
If you’re a fan of the Rewind, you know that siblings Ben and Katie Marshall always come prepared with a good pop bop. Their new single is their third one to be featured in 2017, an exciting electronic-influenced dream pop sound with a strikingly lush production.

_____

THØSS – “Work Is A Four Letter Word” (iTunes) (Spotify)
“Submarine” steered its way into the Rewind waters back in November, but the English artist first came onto my radar about a year ago with single “IWITW” and EP Benchwarmer. Some four letter words I’d use to describe his new song: “real”, “good” and “tune”.

_____

WHISSELL – “Legs Crossed” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Did somebody ring the alarm? Hot song alert! This Nashville singer is no stranger to the Rewind and my blog playlists, with several cuts from her past EP getting the PGTC approval in 2016. Bringing the sass, slayage and spunk, this empowering pop anthem rules.

For more great new music, these tunes are worth a listen…
Floduxe featuring Kyle Reynolds – “That Would Be Nice” (SoundCloud)
Junior Prom – “Young Stunners” (SoundCloud)

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 11/13 – 11/19

Record Rewind - November 20, 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…

_____

BROADHURST – “Bones” (iTunes) (Spotify)
From Sneaky Sound System to sound systems all over the globe, Nick Broadhurst has just about four million Spotify streams for a super single of his, “Little Lover”, and all of the remixes that accompanied it. His latest song, a strong pop ballad, will intrigue you.

_____

COURTSHIP. – “Love For Everyone” (iTunes) (Spotify)
This is the first time on the Rewind for the duo of Eli Hirsch and Micah Gordon, and I think it’s a safe bet that this track will find its way into a commercial real soon. It’s just too catchy to be ignored, and the timely message makes it an even more important single.

_____

KYKO – “Nature” (iTunes) (Spotify)
The last time London’s Scott Verrill was on the Rewind was in September; that’s when his track “Horizon” debuted. That single is a few days away from reaching 600,000 streams on Spotify. Pretty impressive! His tropical pop meets indie rock sound is a winner.

_____

PATTERNIST – “Give It Up” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Musician Gabe Mouer has been making sweet sounds under this name for a couple of years now, so I guess I’m overdue for putting one of his songs on the Rewind. Luckily, this catchy indie pop bop is definitely on repeat for me. Check out his new EP next month.

_____

PRETTY SISTER – “Thirsty” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Zak Waters continues to impress with this fun and funky number that’ll leave you parched for more pop perfection. Of course, I’ve been following the project for over a year now, and with excellent tracks like “Come To LA” and “West Coast”, he’s doing real well.

_____

THØSS – “Submarine” (iTunes) (Spotify)
It’s great to have this performer return with a quality single. In June, the title track from his Benchwarmer EP was included on the Rewind, but the whole set is a pretty solid listen. In an ocean full of indie rock acts, this submarine is certainly making some waves.

_____

For more great new music, these tunes are worth a listen…
ALLMAN BROWN featuring LIZ LAWRENCE – “Palms” (SoundCloud)
ANDIE CASE – “So Low” (SoundCloud)
BRAYTON BOWMAN – “Puff Puff Pass” (SoundCloud)
GRIFF’S ROOM BAND – “Part Of Me” (SoundCloud)
LIZZY LAND – “Sweet Melodies” (SoundCloud)
NATIVES – “Passion” (SoundCloud)
RKCB – “Enough” (SoundCloud)
VALLEY – “Drive” (SoundCloud)

Everybody had to get their new singles delivered and uploaded before Thanksgiving… well, at least there’s plenty to listen to now!

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 6/12 – 6/18

Record Rewind - June 19, 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. We’ll be testing it out this month, so if you like what you see, let me know what you think!

Across the world of SoundCloud and my Indie Summer Mix on Spotify, these records stuck out as my favorite independent tunes of the week…

_____

BOH DORAN – “Breathe” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Last year, we posted about Doran’s first couple of singles, “Rainbow” and “White Knuckles”, the latter of which hit the top ten on several Spotify Viral lists. Two days ago, she issued her latest single with no fanfare at all. It’s a pretty ballad with radio potential.

_____

DANIEL FEELS – “Parachute”
New York-based singer/songwriter Dan Goldberger adds to his Distractions, pt. I EP with this cut, which also premiered in video form on the same day. The musical chameleon has given us a big range of genres and textures so far, and this certainly adds to it.

_____

DECO – “Apollo” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Can our pop bops from King Deco exist at the same time as another act simply called Deco? The answer is, yes. Well, I hope so. It actually marks the third cut we’ve enjoyed from the English act, following “Turn Around” and “Tell Me Lies”. No lie, they’re cool.

_____

JORDAN GABLE – “Fool Of Me” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Gable took it way back to the 60’s on his previous single, “Want U Anyway”, and now, he takes his time machine forward and into the 80’s. The indie pop record sits nicely with many recent blog songs, with a pleading hook that really brings it home. Get into it.

_____

KINGTIDES – “Silhouettes”
This North Carolina duo has been on our radar since last year, when “Drive Through The Night” first appeared online. Riding on a synth pop vibe that explodes into an energetic chorus, this new song has not been fully appreciated yet, so get those reposts up.

_____

MAGGIE ROGERS – “Alaska” (iTunes) (Spotify)
It’s amazing what a co-sign from Pharrell Williams can do, but the act in question has to be an extra special one that can also hold their own. For newcomer Rogers, she seems to be doing alright so far. Ethereal and pleasant, “Alaska” is the current state of pop.

_____

NAWAS – “Wrong” (iTunes) (Spotify)
This Nashville act has been getting some huge buzz over the last few months, as their second single shines with major playlists, as well as a top ten peak on Hype Machine’s overall chart. Jake Nawas and his pals can pump out a powerful production. Stay tuned.

_____

SAY SAY – “Summer Girl” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Los Angeles’s Adam Reiter and Jesse Gurtis have teamed up for a new single that I’d say (say) is great for the season. Beyond that obvious title, it’s a cheery record, beaming a bright pop ray down on the music world. Pool party, anyone? Soak this hot track up.

_____

SERAMIC – “The Things You Do” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Smooth. We love smooth. Singer Marcus Foster keeps his momentum going with this retro gem, the last song to be released off a new EP called Found. Imagine listening to your favorite soul album late at night, alone, swaying to the groove. It’s a good feeling.

_____

THØSS – “Benchwarmer” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Earlier this year, THØSS scored with the blog and streaming hit “IWITW”, which stands at 450,000+ plays on Spotify. Now, that single and a few additional songs can be found on his first EP. The title cut rocks with some edge and a moody lyric. It’s real solid.

_____

VINYL THIEF – “Here In The Moment” (iTunes) (Spotify)
The excitement continues for this Nashville quartet’s EP Touch, due on July 8. “Here” is the second song to be released from it, a new wave meets future pop jam that keeps the beat going. If you need a new emerging act with a slick sound, these guys are great.

_____

ZEKE FINN – “Love Song” (iTunes) (Spotify)
There are just a few new names in our Rewind this week, and this trio from Brooklyn is one of them. It’s not their debut single, as they’ve been releasing tracks for over a year, but it’s one that appears to have broadened their blog audience. It’s a nice pop tune.
