NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of June 8, 2018

Tomorrow slays today.

Will a jam band keep it sticky on the survey? Will two ghost hunters chase their way to #1? So many questions and not enough answers to them! These are the notable digital and physical releases headed into the market this Friday:

The ninth studio album, and first in nearly six years, from this enduring live favorite hits the market this week.

However, it should also debut in the top ten overall.

_____

CONFETTI – “When I Grow Up” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: One previous mention, “People Suck” (February 2018)
Notes: Though not nearly as polarizing as their last release, the new song from this act is just as fun, touching on a universal theme.

_____

RYAN PULFORD – “Better Off Alone” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: First time featured
Notes: Originally a SoundCloud discovery from a couple of years back, Pulford’s first release since 2016 is a super house music jam.

_____

ZAYDE WØLF – “Rule The World” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Three previous mentions, “Higher Than High” (October 2017) being the most recent entry
Notes: With another hit to howl about, that Wolf man returns with this anthemic and energetic release. (We’ll rate his record high.)

RECORD REWIND: PGTC Picks, 10/8 – 10/14/17

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…

_____

BRASKO – “Take Me” (Spotify)
As Jordan Gable, he provided plenty of tasty tunes for several PGTC playlists, including two Rewind appearances with “Fool Of Me” (June 2016) and “Didn’t Mean It” (September 2016). Now, as a second era begins, his edgy new wave-influenced pop sound shines.

_____

GOLDEN COAST – “Float On By” (Spotify)
Singer and songwriter Denny White has been on the Rewind with a pair of tunes this year, including a feature for “Traces” (January 2017). So, it’s also good to have his duo back in action! Their catchy rhythmic pop song floats toward the top of this week’s releases.

_____

VOKES – “Screens” (Spotify)
Don’t worry, your vision is fine! This act is now a quintet, having previously hit the Rewind as a solo project (musician Mike Harris) with “Wrong” (August 2016). Focused in a more alternative direction, the transition is flawless and the single is worth a few listens.

_____

ZAYDE WØLF – “Higher Than High” (Spotify)
Hungry like the Wolf? Us too! “High” is the Nashville performer’s third cut on the Rewind in 2017, with “The Jungle” (August 2017) marking his last appearance to date. With a radio-ready and anthemic pop/rock sound, you’ll be blasting this track through the fall.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
CHRIS JOBE – “Thank You Internet” (SoundCloud)
LEO KALYAN – “No Man’s Land (Part 1)” (SoundCloud)
LUKR – “Secrets” (SoundCloud)

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)
