UTG PHOTOS: Governors Ball Music Festival

Under The Gun sent photographer, Nick Karp, to Randall’s Island in New York City to photograph the Governors Ball Music Festival. Much has changed since I attended the first Governors Ball Music Festival, including (thankfully) a new location, more days added to the festival, and there no longer being the gimmick of “No Overlapping Set times.” The market […]

Listen To Foster The People Cover Calvin Harris’ “Under Control”

I’ll be honest; I’m not a huge fan of cover songs. Frankly, I think actual songwriting is a much more effective way of determining a musicians worth, since just about anyone can copy other people’s work. That being said, occasionally I do run across a cover song that I legitimately enjoy, such as Foster the […]

Up for a challenge? Take out your iPhone and pull up Instagram; it’s time to figure out what filter was used on Foster the People‘s new music video for “Coming of Age.” The video is all sorts of retro both in style and content, with the California trio reppin’ the west coast warmth throughout. “Coming […]
