Mark Hoppus Announces New Side Project With Producer Chris Holmes

Generation Y rejoice! This afternoon, everyone’s favorite punk Mark Hoppus took to Twitter to announce a new side project called Nothing and Nobody. Rounded out by engineer/producer Chris Holmes, the duo has joined forces with Purevolume to unveil their first track, a rip-roaring remix of Nova Rockafeller‘s “1990s.” According to Hoppus’ tweets, Nothing and Nobody […]

STREAM/DOWNLOAD: The 1975 – “Settle Down” (Young Ruffian Remix)

The 1975 have exploded in popularity following the release of their self-titled, debut full length album. They have a handful of popular singles, one of them being the song “Settle Down.” The band even had a music video shot for it. Today “Settle Down” gets a bit of a makeover in the form of a […]

I Suggest You Avoid This Fantastic Trailer For ‘Boyhood’

I’ll be honest. I don’t watch movie trailers. In fact, I do everything in my power to actively avoid them. I prefer to go into movies as fresh as possible. And far too often, trailers just give away too much information. Then again, I see pretty much everything anyway and I know a lot of […]


MOD SUN spent the latter half of 2013 working on his debut album, and touring alongside fellow wordsmith Hoodie Allen. While on the road last fall, the up-and-comer debuted an infectious new track titled “Free Love,” and as of today, the giddy tune got its very own music video, which can be viewed after the […]

Baths To Release New EP, ‘Ocean Death,’ Next Month

Baths can be a hard pill to swallow for those accustomed to more mainstream electronic acts. Unpredictable and experimental, the haunting melodies fashioned by musician/producer Will Wiesenfeld may seem hard to navigate at first, but with time, have a habit of proving wonderfully accessible and wildly stimulating. Last year, the 25-year-old released his second full-length […]

ALBUM STREAM: tUnE-yArDs – ‘Nikki Nack’

Art pop is still alive, and Merril Garbus may single-handedly be making sure that’s the case. tUnE-yArDs, Garbus’ once solo project that now includes bassist Nate Brenner, is returning with her third album, Nikki Nack, out May 6 via 4AD. With only a little more than a week to go until its release, it’s now been put […]

UTG PREMIERE: The Hunters – “It Had To Be You”

We’re so busy defending pop-punk and reviving emo that we rarely address the great crop of ’90s-influenced bands out there. Throw Canada’s The Hunters in that last batch – their brand of rock channels a great ’96 bar band (that’s, you know, actually good) with doses of Daytrader, Foo Fighters, and Rise Against making appearances. […]

Mastodon Vocalist: “I Think Us Screaming And Yelling Is Kind Of A Thing Of The Past”

Mastodon are one of the few remaining juggernauts of the hard rock world, but they are also one of the most progressive bands in music. I’m not sure whether or not they ever swore to never do the same thing twice, but with each release they have forged ahead with cunning a willingness to try […]

Watch Say Lou Lou’s Semi-Scandelous “Everything We Touch” Music Video

Australia-based (but Swedish-born) duo Say Lou Lou have shared a new music video for their current single, “Everything We Touch.” The song is a less moody version of Lorde, keeping bright tones without ever going full pop star. ​The video, however, does. The twins are apparently nude and floating about in lots of outer space visuals. Nature, planets, […]

IFFBoston Review: ‘Skeleton Twins’

Film: Skeleton Twins Directed by: Craig Johnson Starring: Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader Suicide is a tricky subject to handle on screen, especially in a story where you plan to involve elements of pitch black comedy, but Craig Johnson has successfully combined the two in his new and heartbreakingly hilarious film.

IFFBoston Review: ‘Beneath The Harvest Sky’

Film: Beneath The Harvest Sky Directed by: Aron Gaudet and Gita Pullapilly Starring: Emory Cohen, Callan McAuliffe Growing up in the middle of nowhere it can be hard to understand at a young age just how different you are from your peers. Your entire life has been spent with the same group of people in […]

SINGLE REVIEW: Say Anything – “Six Six Six”

​Artist: ​Say AnythingSingle: “​Six Six Six”​Album: ​HebrewsLabel: ​Equal Vision Records Being a Say Anything fan isn’t always easy. Max Bemis is possibly the most volatile songwriter in the scene — changing his style drastically between releases to fit whatever new concept he’s come up with. As seen in the bulk of 2012’s relatively disappointing Anarchy, […]
