RECORD REWIND 2020: 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!

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
BRUCE WEIGNER – “Say To You” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fifth appearance

This Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter has been fairly busy in the past year or so, creating songs for both himself and artists like musician and digital creator Scotty Sire and recent Songland contestant and songwriter CORii. “Say” is another quality release.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
DYLAN – “Good Enough” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance

It was good enough for some Spotify editorial love and it’s also good enough for the weekly Rewind report: 20-year-old Dylan has a winner with the newest cut from her forthcoming EP titled Red, out May 29. I look forward to hearing the last two songs on the set.

PICK OF THE WEEK: THREE
JAMIE SCOTT – “Friendly Fire” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance

Scott’s awesome music and fantastic songwriting have been a part of my life since 2011, especially the singles off Grafitti6’s Colours album and his 2014 solo outing My Hurricane, along with his various co-writes for other artists. This track is a very pleasant listen.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
ANSON SEABRA – “Hindenburg Lover”
BEN KESSLER – “Just Wanna Be Your Friend”
FLY BY MIDNIGHT – “LA Lonely”
KEVIN GARRETT – “It’s Gonna Be Me”
KODALINE – “Saving Grace”
WRABEL – “Somebody New”

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 – “Gone” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Sixth appearance

Rose may have been gone for a minute, but he’s back! With his first single on the Rewind since August, the moody tune is a winner.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
WRABEL – “Hurts Like Hell” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Ninth appearance

After a performance on Today and a great sales reaction, Wrabel’s personal new track is poised to become his biggest song in years.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
ADAM MELCHOR – “Jewel”
ALY & AJ – “Attack Of Panic”

RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Thirty Seven


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”

RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Thirty Six


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
DRUMAQ – “Innit” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Third appearance

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.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
DANIELLA MASON – “Woman Lover Powerful”

DELACEY – “Actress”

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”
