Great Cynics

UTG INTERVIEW: Great Cynics Discuss ‘I Feel Weird’

Since 2011, Great Cynics have been bringing their own version of folk-punk to the masses. First it started with their home country of England, but now in 2015, they’ve logged thousands of miles thanks to some incredible tours with groups like Joyce Manor and The Smith Street Band. Their third full-length, I Feel Weird, will be […]

Puppy Release Nostalgic Video For “Forever”

I know very little about Puppy. I know that they just released a rad new track titled “Forever,” and an accompanying video with it. A video in which they do not appear, but old footage from rock festivals and concerts are plenty, as their grunge-pop tune is played over it. With luscious textures giving rise […]

Blur Magic Whip

Blur Announce First New Album in 12 Years, Share “Go Out”

Damon Albarn has said time and time again that Gorillaz will reunite. Fans know to take his word with a grain of salt, but recently that proved to be true. Every promise of a new Blur album, though, seemed far more of a stretch given it’s been 12 years since their last album. Turns out […]

SBTRKT Wonder Where We Land

SBTRKT Announces New Album, Shares Single feat. Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig

UPDATE: Stream “New Dorp, New York” feat. Ezra Koenig below. Earlier this year, UK producer SBTRKT dropped a surprise EP out of nowhere. Today, he has announced the release of Wonder Where We Land, his highly-anticipated follow-up to his 2011 self-titled debut. Oh 2014, how sweet you are. The album artwork is above and a creepy trailer […]

Kanye DJ

Kanye West Played 20 New Songs in London Yesterday

When it comes to Kanye West, it’s best to expect the unexpected. Shortly after dropping the excellent Yeezus out of nowhere last summer, he’s already dishing up new material despite getting married, working on his fashion line, and doing court-ordered community service. That’s right. After London’s Wireless festival last night, Kanye and consigliere Virgil Abloh manned a […]

On July 8, La Roux’s sophomore album, Trouble in Paradise, comes out via Cherrytree / Interscope, but today we get to hear the first official single, “Uptight Downtown.” La Roux is keeping up […]

Angel Olsen High Wild

MUSIC VIDEO: Angel Olsen – “High & Wild”

Country folk indie singer-songwriter Angel Olsen dropped her newest album, the near-perfect Burn Your Fire For No Witness, back in February. She rolled out a new music video today, though, for single “High & Wild,” giving us the perfect excuse to revisit the record. The song will be officially released as a single in June. “High & […]

UTG TV: Little Barrie Speak On ‘Shadow’

Last Thursday UTG TV headed into New York City to meet up with our friends in Little Barrie at Santos Party House. Fortunately, we were able to catch them just before they headed to Europe for a UK tour followed by dates in Germany, France, and the Netherlands. For those who are not familiar with […]

Eminem

GOD SAVE SLIM SHADY: Eminem Announces Show At Wembley Stadium In London

Are you British? Do you love Eminem? Then you’re in luck. Unfortunately, I’m in New York, so I doubt I’ll be making this specific show. About a half hour ago (in true Sex Pistols’ fashion), the “Rap God” announced a one-off date in London on July 11 at Wembley Stadium via his Instragram account, as […]

Brand New Live 2

Watch Brand New Cover Coldplay and Modest Mouse

Brand New have done their fair share of covers over time, often showing a lot of love for Neutral Milk Hotel way back when. A few days ago, though, the band played a show at the London Troxy and mixed up “The Boy Who Blocked His Own Shot” with a little bit of Coldplay and […]
