RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Twenty Two

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
BENEDICT CORK – “Breaking Hearts” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Third appearance

One of the sweetest voices in soft pop as of recent returns to the Rewind for his third time with another gorgeous tune. Cork, who is currently based in London, hits all the right notes with an emotional vocal and tender sound. It continues to be a good year for him.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
KIM PETRAS – “Do Me” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Tenth appearance

Yes, you’ve been seeing a lot of Kim Petras tunes on here lately, so why not add one more to the mix? (Hey, I can’t help it if she’s out with some great music.) No need to worry, R&B fans, Petras isn’t remaking a certain Bell Biv DeVoe song: this is a pure pop winner.

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
KYAN PALMER & NICOPOP. featuring JOHNNY MAC – “What U Like”
MOLLY KATE KESTNER – “My Way Up”
RYAN PULFORD – “Hurts To Fall”
SPENCER BARNETT – “Reckless”
VÉRITÉ – “Gone”
XYLØ“Yes & No”

PICK OF THE WEEK: ONE
JOHNNY STIMSON – “Vacation” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Ninth appearance

A long weekend deserves a track called “Vacation” and that’s what Stimson gives us in his second Rewind feature of 2019. So, get in the car, roll down the windows and keep things simple with this smooth R&B release for your magical summer evening soundtrack.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
KIM PETRAS – “All I Do Is Cry” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Ninth appearance

Nine is fine (appearances, that is) for both the featured performers this week, especially this one, who just released a new single for the fifth week in a row. If you’re crying over this cut, it’s probably tears of joy: the urban-influenced pop ballad is another nice tune.

PICK OF THE WEEK: ONE
PRETTY SISTER – “Kingdom In The Valley” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Sixth appearance

It’s been a minute since Zak Waters’s project last appeared on the Rewind, though he managed to put three singles in the recap last year, including “New Fire” and “Tension”. This bouncy funk release has a fun early 80’s synth-pop influence that’s pretty awesome.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
XYLØ – “Ride Or Die” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fourth appearance

Meanwhile, Paige Duddy’s solo records as XYLØ have been included here a handful of times since going independent, much of that material coming from her EP called Pretty Sad from March. This ride might be a mellower one, but we’re up for the passenger seat.

ADAM LAMBERT, “New Eyes”

RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week 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!

_____

PICK OF THE WEEK: ONE
BETTY WHO – “The One” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Seventh appearance

One of the album highlights from this past Friday’s pack of releases is the latest set from this pop performer, a dazzling project with so many catchy tunes. Several of them, including “I Remember” from a few weeks ago, are on here. This retro track is also fantastic.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
CXLOE – “I Can’t Have Nice Things” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance

Australian-based pop is having a great 2019 so far and it’s so good have CXLOE in the mix to continue that trend. Of course, her cut titled “Show You”, which was included on the Rewind last August, got a lot of love from Spotify. Her newest release is pretty catchy.

PICK OF THE WEEK: THREE
FELIX CARTAL & LIGHTS – “Love Me” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance (Lights records for Warner Bros. Records)

For the CanCon lover in all of us, check out this super collaboration that’s sure to do well up north and in the EDM chart world. Out just in time for Valentine’s Day on the 14th, it’s another great addition to the catalogs of both soloists. Get ready to move it all night.

PICK OF THE WEEK: FOUR
XYLØ – “Nothing Left To Say” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First appearance

After a run of quality bops on the Disruptor label, a part of the Sony family, Paige Duddy’s solo project (formerly a duo with brother Chase) continues on with a new independent song and a forthcoming EP in just under two weeks. It’s a good preview of the project.
