Heems (Ex-Das Racist) Reminisces On A Lost Love In New Single With Help From Dev Hynes

Between all the endlessly enjoyable material released by Das Racist — up until their untimely breakup in 2012 — and his own solo mixtapes released thus far, Himanshu “Heems” Suri never disappoints. To continue the trend, he’ll be releasing his first proper solo effort, cleverly titled Eat Pray Thug, on March 10 via Megaforce. This […]

Chvrches

Chvrches Cover Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me A River”

Scottish indie-pop group Chvrches have become known for their popular covers, so when they had the chance to perform on BBC Live Lounge, they shared their own rendition of Justin Timberlake‘s 2002 hit “Cry Me A River.” The band’s strong synth influence is heavy on this groovy cover song, shining spotlight on vocalist Lauren Mayberry’s […]

Motionless In White

Motionless In White Release Music Video For “Break The Cycle”

Today, Motionless In White dropped a brand new music video for the track “Break The Cycle” off of their 2014 album Reincarnate.  This gothic performance video is everything you’d expect from Motionless In White: dark, candle-lit rooms, heavy music, and full-blown anger.

Toro Y Moi Jam With Death In ’90s-Inspired Video For “Empty Nesters”

If I didn’t know any better, I would think this was a new Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin joint, maybe apart from the funkiness. Either way, Toro Y Moi‘s newest single skips a season or two and sets us up for happy-go-lucky, summer vibes. Lifted from the band’s upcoming album What For?, “Empty Nesters” […]

Diet Cig Stream Charming New EP, ‘Over Easy’

Today is the first time I’ve ever listened to New Paltz’s Diet Cig, and frankly it kind of bums me out. The duo’s newest release, Over Easy, is cute and catchy as hell. It’s lovable garage pop, like Sleater-Kinney meets Au Revoir Simone; very Saturday Looks Good To Me-ish. It’s youthful and refreshing and I’m […]

Raleigh Ritchie Releases “The Greatest” New Jam

When he’s not fearlessly leading the Unsullied as Grey Worm in HBO’s Game Of Thrones or playing somewhat of a red herring in Broadchurch, Jacob Anderson is creating soulful jams under the banner of Raleigh Ritchie. Premiering on Hypetrak earlier this week is his newest single, “The Greatest,” which will be officially released on April […]

The Young Wild Release New Video For Ultra-Catchy Single, “Not A One”

California’s The Young Wild is an act that was unfortunately not on my radar until very recently. So, needless to say, I’ve been making up for lost time, starting with countless replays of the video for their most recent single, “Not A One.” Premiering over at Nerdist earlier this week, the video for “Not A […]

Daisyhead Release Melodically Moving New Single, “East Bend”

Over the course of the past year or so, Daisyhead have cemented themselves on our radar here at UTG. From their 2014 split with Have Mercy to their well-received Jimmy Eat World cover that was featured on No Sleep’s A Comp For Mom, the band continues to prove their worth in the alternative scene alongside […]

CHON Stream First Single From Sumerian Records Debut, ‘Grow’

I’ll be the first to admit how bummed I am about how late this post is. However, in typical CHON fashion, the first single from their upcoming full-length, Grow, is an absolute thrill of a listen. Chock full of groove and technical prowess, and devoid of any vocals as per usual, “Story” is CHON at […]

The song, titled “I Can’t Breathe,” after the last words spoken by Eric Garner before his murder, is dedicated to “Eric and for all those from Russia to America and around the […]
