UTG PHOTOS: The Kills in New York, NY (05/17/16)

By the looks of the packed Music Hall of Williamsburg, the five-year absence of The Kills did not go unnoticed. For that venue, where bands can be virtually on top of the front row, this was a great night for a gritty rock show. As a constant supporter of The White Stripes, it’s impressive to […]

Shy Tech

Shy Technology’s “High Strung” Video Is A Guaranteed Smile-Inducer

I’ve gushed about it before, but allow me to reiterate: Shy Technology‘s most recent release—a five-track EP titled Where We Go From Here—is one of those albums you might not catch in time to add to your ‘Best Of’ list come year’s end. If you don’t catch it now, you might discover it next year, […]

Wolf Alice

ESSENTIAL LISTENING: Wolf Alice – “Bros”

North London rock group Wolf Alice has been getting plenty of hype in the last few years, but the teens have yet to let it get to their head. The four-piece dart between ’90s rock, moody grunge, aerial electronics, and dusty atmospherics similarly to the Smashing Pumpkins or The Breeders. After releasing several EPs over […]

REVIEW: The Damnwells – ‘The Damnwells’

Artist: The Damnwells Title: The Damnwells Label: Independent Genre: Indie Rock While often quite permeable, our musical palates allow for very little flexibility in terms of what we feel comfortable listening to. Certain people feel for hard-hitting lyrical attributes, some look to instrumentation for inspiration, and others run to records blindly and wait until something […]

Torres

Watch a Video for Torres’ Intense New Single “Sprinter”

Singer-songwriter Mackenzie Scott is a deadly powerhouse. She may seem sweet onstage as Torres, shuffling her shoes with witty banter, but once she grabs her guitar and tilts her head back to sing, she becomes a force to be reckoned with. Her sophomore album, Sprinter, drops May 4 via Partisan Records. In anticipation of its […]

Pile Share Ridiculous “Rock and Roll Forever With The Customer In Mind” Video

Boston has a handful of incredible bands that are too modest to enjoy their own time in the spotlight. Without a doubt, the leaders of that are Pile. The rock band wield guitars to let out some of the best guitar solos you’ve heard in the last ten years all while seemingly unaware of their own […]

UTG PREMIERE: Deaf Rhino – “Hey You”

New Jersey rock ‘n’ roll outfit Deaf Rhino come out fighting with their new track, “Hey You.” The song, which mirrors indie rock superiority the likes of Arctic Monkeys or newly popular Royal Blood, is a myriad of dirty vocal delivery mixed with sophisticated instrumental work. The song comes straight off of the band’s debut […]
