RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 7/9 – 7/15/17

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 – “Not Over Yet” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Taos is certainly making his mark on the Rewind this year, having previously been featured with a pair of top tracks: “Off My Mind” in January and “These Days” in May. As the title says, his days of my enjoying his tunes are not over yet, as he releases another bop.

_____

JOHN SPLITHOFF featuring MADISON RYANN WARD – “Show Me” (iTunes) (Spotify)
It’s been over a year since Splithoff released his last new single, the smooth and delectable “Sing To You”, which has now achieved a super impressive 20 million streams on Spotify. This R&B-influenced pop collaboration steers him in a fresh, but lovable, direction.

_____

ZAYDE WØLF – “Brave” (iTunes) (Spotify)
This Nashville singer and songwriter last appeared on the Rewind about a year ago, but several tracks from 2016’s Golden Age were featured on PGTC’s Spotify playlists. The anthemic pop cut has a nice hook and some cool builds in production. It’s a winner to me!

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
ANDREW BELLE – “Honey And Milk” (SoundCloud)
TRENTON – “In The Summer Light” (SoundCloud)

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 10/2 – 10/8

Record Rewind - October 9, 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…

_____

JUNIOR EMPIRE – “Danger” (iTunes) (Spotify)
This London quintet has been featured twice before on my Rewind, and their latest song is another worthy part of their catalog. It has a definite early 90’s feel to it, perhaps inspired by larger bands of the day like Depeche Mode or New Order. It’s a good sound.

_____

LAUV – “Breathe” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Former New Yorker and now Los Angeles singer/songwriter Ari Leff continues to deliver solid records, experimenting with many different sounds along the way. His latest single strikes a good balance between the classic soft rock song and modern production.

_____

SMITH & THELL – “Row” (Spotify)
This Swedish duo had a hit on Spotify earlier this year with a single titled “Statue”. Between the original version and a remix, it’s a little below 2.4 million plays overall at the service. However, their latest release is an even catchier folk-pop jam. It’s great for fall.


_____

ZAYDE WØLF – “Born Ready” (iTunes) (Spotify)
I’ve been supporting Wølf’s prowl for pop glory since the beginning of the year, and my animal instinct tells me that he’s due for a great run with his album Golden Age. It’s a big release in what’s been a big period of syncs for the musician, and he’s not done yet.

_____

For more great new music, these tunes are worth a listen…
CASTLECOMER – “Get In Line” (SoundCloud)
ELLE WATSON – “Walls” (SoundCloud)
KIDS AT MIDNIGHT – “Turn It Off” (SoundCloud)
LEON POWER – “Blind” (SoundCloud)

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 6/5 – 6/11

Record Rewind - June 12, 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…

_____

CARDBOARD KIDS – “Struggle” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Sometimes, the struggle is real. In fact, this “Struggle” is real… real solid, that is. Nashville’s four Kids are back and going around the pop playground we call the blogosphere, scoring in the top 20 on the Hype Machine Twitter chart. Their Mint EP is out soon.

_____

DENNY WHITE – “Sweetness”
Golden Coast’s golden boy returns with a treat of a track; call it smooth ear candy infused with a dark core. White’s single jumped to #1 on Hype Machine’s Twitter list during the week, the top 30 overall, and remains popular on several sites. Have a cavity yet?

_____

EZA – “Off The Record” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Nashville’s Ellery Bonham is no stranger to hot pop records, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that I’m on the record with my approval for her latest jam. It’s great. “Off” saw a nice boost from a Billboard premiere and an add on Spotify’s U.S. New Music Friday list.

_____

HALFNOISE – “Know The Feeling” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Many people are obsessed with “Can’t Stop The Feeling” at the moment, myself included, but there are a few other “feeling” cuts out there waiting to be heard. This Zac Farro project has one of them, a slice of electro-pop that’ll satisfy the SoundCloud crowd.

_____

HANNAH JANE LEWIS – “Bend Or Break” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Lewis’s potent pop sound delivered her great results with her previous single, “Why Start A War”, and thus, the war for blog love continues with a likable follow-up single. If you haven’t heard much about the London newcomer so far, you definitely will soon.

_____

JAKIL – “Tongue Tied” (iTunes) (Spotify)
This five-man band is a new one on my radar, but we’ll be keeping an eye on them. They’re based in London and Edinburgh. They seem to be wrapping their tongues around the popular and slick 80’s sound that’s made a comeback in the past few years. I like it.

_____

JUNIOR EMPIRE – “West Coast” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Currently in the top ten on Hype Machine is this cool track, a new single from the group that went through a recent name change. They were previously known as The Mispers. Now, the act delivers a nice summery song, a mixture of pop and electric goodness.

_____

LAUV featuring TRAVIS MILLS – “Question” (iTunes) (Spotify)
Lauv was featured on our 16 For ’16 list late last year, when he gained massive support for his Lost In The Light EP and songs like “Reforget” and “The Other”. He’s a lion by name, and his production certainly roars. Oh, and the answer is to keep listening to it.

_____

PRETTY SISTER – “West Coast” (iTunes) (Spotify)
We have dueling “West Coast” records in the lineup this week, and I had to feature them both. I may as well take a vacation to the western part of the country soon. This Zak Waters project has impressed with several viral hits, and this soulful song is excellent.

_____

ZAYDE WØLF – “Will I Fall” (iTunes) (Spotify)
How will this Wolf survive? A steady diet of syncs and reactive songs, of course. The Rare Breed EP is a good listen, featuring the anthemic track “Built For This Time”, but “Will I Fall” is another solid single from the Nashville musician. Get onto the dark side.
