Henrietta Stream Acoustic Rendition Album

Last August, Henrietta released The Trick Is Not Minding, a fantastic indie-emo record that received a 9/10 from our very own Drew Caruso. Given the record’s occasional somber qualities, it makes sense that Henrietta would decide to reimagine some of those songs into acoustic tracks. While it doesn’t include every track, The Trick Is Reimagined […]

Blind Mice

Blind Mice Share New Track, “Nervous”

About a month back, we were given our first taste of Blind Mice’s upcoming EP, Sunday Songs, in the form of a raw, punk-inspired jam titled “Fifteen.” Since then, we’ve been eagerly awaiting more new material from the budding New Bedford quartet, and earlier this morning, our prayers were answered thanks to the good people […]

Blind Mice are streaming their newest single, “Fifteen,” over at Absolutepunk, and this is one jam that you won’t want to miss out on.

UTG PREMIERE: Henrietta – “Leave It Alone”

You have to love what Henrietta‘s swinging. The Orlando quartet push a great brand of emo-tinged rock with mathy elements, a friendly formula for fans of Braid, Balance & Composure, The American Scene or even Minus The Bear. The sound’s perfectly unrefined, just as it should be – bleeding with raw urgency while offering great […]
