Stream Polyenso’s new record ‘Pure In The Plastic’ now

Before you get totally exhausted with electronic R&B, please stop and listen to Polyenso‘s new record. Formally known as Oceana, the Florida trio is here to destroy our boredom with a genre that has been dominated by bands like Glass Animals and Alt-J, and worn out by so many others. With its first album under […]

7fields

7fields releases stripped-down cover of The Strokes’ “Heart In A Cage”

Under the moniker of 7fields, Wolfgang Schrödl, ex-singer/guitarist in the now-defunct, German rock band Liquido, has released a cover of The Strokes’ “Heart In A Cage,” taken from the band’s 2006 release, First Impressions of Earth. In a wildly different interpretation of the Julian Casablancas-penned single, Schrödl strips the rocking source material down to an […]

UTG PREMIERE: Equipment – “Commuter”

A project, known as Equipment, started about a year ago for the 18-year-old Toledo, Ohio-based musician, Nick Stoup. After releasing prior material throughout this past year, we’re excited to premiere his new song, “Commuter,” which he says is “what I’ve wanted to do ever since I started playing music.” “Commuter” was recorded in downtown Toledo […]

Sorority Noise release new song, ‘XC”

Channeling a little bit of Sunny Day Real Estate in their brand new song, Hartford punk four-piece Sorority Noise unveil their more delicate side. “XC” is their second single off of their upcoming record, beautifully titled It Kindly Stopped For Me.

Deftones release blistering new track, “Doomed User”

Deftones have released the second new track from their upcoming LP, Gore, titled “Doomed User.” Unlike the first track released, “Doomed User” is a heavy hitter focusing less on atmosphere, and more on grit. Speaking with SirusXM, vocalist Chino Moreno states that “it’s got a rockin’ rhythm and a high-tech sound that will make you […]

Saosin share first new single from comeback album with Anthony Green

Since the first mention of Saosin moving forward once again with Anthony Green at the helm for Skate & Surf nearly two years ago, the questions have remained: Will we hear new music? And when? Well, sure, I remember hearing some new cuts at Riot Fest two years ago. Well, now they’ve shared the video […]

saddle of southern darkness

Saddle Of Southern Darkness create evil country born from metal influences

For starters, Saddle Of Southern Darkness is easily one of the most bad-ass band names I’ve come across in some time. It immediately evokes a sense of ominous intent, something nefarious no doubt. Although the band’s music may not provide the heaviness one might suspect, given the name, it’s certainly inspired by it, and the […]

Director John Carpenter streams “Angel’s Asylum” from ‘Lost Themes II’

John Carpenter, the Master Of Horror, will release his second solo album, Lost Themes II, on April 15 through Sacred Bones Records.

UTG PREMIERE: Through The Sparks – “Living Rooms”

This morning, we’re excited to bring you “Living Rooms,” a jittery new single courtesy of veteran indie rockers Through The Sparks. The track, taken from the band’s upcoming full-length, Transindifference, is an ambitious blend of genres that wouldn’t sound totally out of place on Pink Floyd’s Animals, making for a delightfully nostalgic listen when all […]

20 matches

Chris Wirsig’s ’20 Matches’ score is fittingly dark and eerie

San Francisco-based musician Chris Wirsig serves as one half of the noire-pop outfit no:carrier, but he’s dabbled in countless other endeavors as well. One recently most impressive includes composing the appropriately unsettling score for Mark Tapio Kines’ short film, titled 20 Matches, which was funded at a whopping 712% of its original $1,000 goal through […]

grinberg

Daniel Grinberg’s ‘Short Stories’ are spirited and welcoming

Daniel Grinberg began teaching himself to play multiple instruments at an early age. Being less than proficient in school, he’d turn to music as his go-to—as so many of us do—and in the long run, it’s paid off. Grinberg’s most recent project, dubbed Short Stories, follows many musical and other field endeavors over the years […]
