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
JT ROACH – “Make It Up To You” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance

After his win on the NBC show Songland, leading to his original composition “Somebody To Love” being cut by OneRepublic, the Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter delivers another cool lyric and song with a much softer production, which flows very well.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
WRABEL – “Flying” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Eighth appearance

A few cuts from this performer’s new EP titled One Of Those Happy People (which came out on Friday) have already been included on the Rewind since the spring. This track, a groovy and glitzy gem that was written with Jesse Shatkin and Jesse Thomas, is a bop.

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
DRUMAQ – “Granola”
EMILY VAUGHN – “Baddie”
GABRIELLE APLIN – “Kintsugi”
PRETTY SISTER & MARCLO – “Tequila”
YOUR SMITH – “Man Of Weakness”

Just ahead of his mixtape Vitamin D, which debuts on Friday, this performer unleashes a very groovy side to the project on the new single to be released from it. The disco-tinged production packs a little nostalgia, but remains contemporary enough to sound fresh.

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”

RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Thirty Two

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
CXLOE & GNASH – “Sick” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fourth appearance for CXLOE / Gnash is signed to Atlantic Records

As long as you’re not sick of me posting about her, emerging Australian pop singer CXLOE has another awesome song that sees her collaborate with gnash, who appeared in an unsigned acts spotlight post at the end of 2015. She’s ready to slay the pop radio charts.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
JOHNNY STIMSON – “IDWLY” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Tenth appearance

Stimson has been a favorite of mine for several years now, with this new single being his third appearance on the Rewind so far this year. IDWLY may be short for “I don’t wanna love you”, but as far as I’m concerned, my love for the cool sound has only just begun.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
RUELLE – “Take It Out On You”
RUTHANNE – “Unrequited”

PICK OF THE WEEK: ONE
LAUV featuring ANNE-MARIE – “F*ck, I’m Lonely” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: 16th appearance for Lauv / Anne-Marie is signed to Warner Records (U.S.)

Featured on the soundtrack to the upcoming season of Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why, both of which are due August 23, this tune should receive a larger look following the show’s highly-anticipated premiere. The release itself, while neither artist’s best song, is pleasant.
