Our love for the creative minds of New England is as old as this site, but we’ll be the first to admit that Boston has only been home to a handful of notable rappers. Blame it on the “Dirty Water” or perhaps the legendary blue collar workforce, but far more great rock bands have hailed […]

UTG VIDEO PREMIERE: Kevin William – “Children”

When the chill of fall weather cuts through the air I know it’s time to bury my pop punk mixtapes under a pile of releases more fitting of the changing leaves and dropping temperatures. For me, that music often involves acoustic albums and melodic hardcore, or really anything with deep emotions and complex ideas. It […]
