Celebrating 10 Years of Circa Survive’s ‘Juturna’

People sometimes ask me what my musical evolution was, and my general answer is that, before anything else, Circa Survive got me into independent music. Before hearing their debut Juturna, which turned ten years old on Sunday, I’m pretty sure I only listened to Linkin Park and that one Three Days Grace song. At some point […]

Celebrating 20 Years of Silverchair’s ‘Frogstomp’

In the last week of March in 1995, a band of three long-haired, fifteen-year-old grunge disciples from working class Newcastle in northern New South Wales shot to worldwide prominence courtesy of their enthusiastically received debut album Frogstomp. That band was known as Silverchair and for a nine-year-old Australian kid, raised on the likes of Nirvana, […]

They released their debut full-length album in August of 1995, which means its twenty-year anniversary is in about five months. Fans will be glad to hear that the band is planning on embarking on some tours in celebration of the milestone. So […]

“Life’s greatest questions have always been: Who am I? Where did I come from? Why am I here? Where am I going? You are about to see and hear one of the most significant messages given to us from God.” When I was in my elementary school years as a little boy not knowing the […]

10 YEARS LATER: Rise Against’s ‘Siren Song of the Counter Culture’

If you were to look at Pitchfork’s scathing 2.9/10 review of Rise Against’s third studio album today, you’ll find more snark-filled jabs against young adult angst and punk ideologies stuffed into a letter to Ralph Nader than you could shake an X-emblazoned fist at. Plenty has changed in the past ten years since that was […]

‘Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle’ 10 Years Later: Still High After All This Time

In the summer of 2004 I was seventeen and living a life that could best be described as straight edge. It’s not that I lived in a world thriving with drugs and alcohol that I fought daily to avoid. On the contrary, I came up in a modest, middle class household in a tiny rural […]

UTG TV: Warped 2014 With Yellowcard

“I hope that somewhere, whoever is sitting in an office, looking at the internet and counting his money, that he decides that this is a good year for a new Yellowcard record.” It’s hard to believe that Yellowcard released their classic record Ocean Avenue a decade ago. I’ll spare you the redundant “list-blog” type of […]

Nas Drops Video For ‘Illmatic’s “Represent” After Two Decades

Yes, you read that headline right. There are few people who can drop a new music video for a song that is 20 years old, and Nas is certainly one of them. Of course not every hip-hop artist can stay relevant, respected, and nostalgic all at the same time. But most rappers haven’t put out […]
