MUST LISTEN: Sunny Day Real Estate – “Lipton Witch”

Record Store Day was yesterday, and there were plenty of releases for fans of all genres to look forward to. One of those releases was a split between Circa Survive and Sunny Day Real Estate. This split is particularly exciting because SDRE haven’t released new music together in fourteen years. While I do love Circa Survive, SDRE’s “Lipton Witch” is definitely the biggest reason to grab the split. You can give it a listen by taking a look below the jump.

If you missed out on grabbing the split yesterday, you can always try to pick it up on …

Required Listening: Circa Survive – “Scentless Apprentice” (Nirvana Cover)

It’s Record Store Day! We hope those of you who were able to shop this morning got out and did your part to celebrate and support the industry we’ve dedicated our lives to covering, but even if you left as soon as you woke up today there is a good chance you came home with a few items missing from your RSD wish list. We cannot help you acquire those records, but we can help you experience some of the music you may be missing.

Circa Survive were one of a dozen artists chosen to cover a song off Nirvana

UTG Album Premiere: Astro Safari USA – ‘Trapman’

It’s hard to summarize Astro Safari USA in a single descriptive phrase, let alone figure out which genre their sound falls under, but if you like pizza, cats, rap, and everything else the internet thrives on for positivity you probably owe it to yourself to give the following album a few minutes of your time.

Hailing from California by way of New York, Astro Safari USA is the result of JP Clark (Young and Divine) combining his musical talents with those of former Secret Secret Dino Club mastermind Jayce Kalinkewicz. Their sophomore album, Trapman, hits stores tomorrow (4/20), but …

The song is titled “What’s Left?” and it’s available to watch below.

This is a live music video that is a mix of live performances and some behind the scenes shots of the band while they were on the road.…

Let The Analog Affair Kickstart Your Weekend With “Take Me Home”

The digital age is a crazy cool time for music for a number of reasons, including the ability for musicians separated by hundreds, if not thousands of miles to collaborate on projects that the entire world can enjoy. This is one of those projects.

Evan Baker and Cody Moser are the two creative minds behind The Analog Affair, a fast-rising electronic outfit with a wide range of influences from the worlds of rock and pop. Their sound brings to mind the kind of cutesy indie meets summertime electronica fodder you would expect Pitchfork to flip over, with a subtle sentimentality …

Move Over Batman, “Trapman” is The Hero Pop Music Needs

If you have never heard of Astro Safari USA before this moment you’re about to have a very, very exciting Friday.

A lot of people have been fortunate enough to portray Batman over the last hundred years. Christian Bale, George Clooney, Adam West, an eccentric billionaire named Bruce Wayne, and more. Only one person has ever been so blessed that the unseen powers that control the universe saw fit to dub them Trapman, and fortunately for the rest of us that person has decided to share their gift for wordplay with the rest of the world via Astro Safari USA’s …

SINGLE REVIEW: Benny Benassi & John Dahlback – “Blink Again”

In 2014, John Dahlback and Benny Benassi have little left to prove. While Dahlback has been a staple within the electro house music scene for years through his productions and record label, Benassi has reigned as an international superstar whose popularity has transcended electronic music and bled over into the mainstream. Thus, both artists could easily throw in the production towel and perform at clubs across the globe for the rest of their days, but it appears their intentions lie elsewhere on their Ultra Records backed single, “Blink Again.”…

Sylar

Sylar Stream ‘To Whom It May Concern’ In Full

It recently came to light that Sylar‘s upcoming album, To Whom It May Concern, leaked online nearly a month early. Once an album has leaked, there really isn’t much a band can do to fix it. One step that can be done though is to host an official stream of the album. This helps draw fans to their official page(s) and will hopefully inspire them to purchase the album legally instead of downloading it. This is what Sylar and their label have done, and you can stream To Whom It May Concern below the jump.

Physical pre-orders are …

Breathe Carolina

Watch Breathe Carolina’s Music Video For “Chasing Dreams” Feat. Tyler Carter

Breathe Carolina released their fourth studio album, Savages, just a couple of days ago on April 15. This was also their first album without founding member Kyle Evan. There are a handful of guest vocalists on the album, including Tyler Carter. He makes his appearance on the single “Chasing Dreams,” and that’s the song Breathe Carolina have now released a music video for.

The video starts off with frontman David Schmitt walking around a house with a handycam. Tyler Carter shows up, and the two of them start passing around the camera to their buddies. Most of the …

Wolves At The Gate

ACOUSTIC STREAM: Wolves At The Gate – “Dead Man”

Wolves At The Gate released their debut full length album, Captors, through Solid State Records back in 2012. Since they are a bit of a heavier band, there aren’t too many tracks on their album that would make good acoustic songs. Lucky for us though, they picked a great song to put together an acoustic rendition of one of the best tracks on the album. The song is “Dead Man,” and you can watch them perform it acoustically below the jump.

Be sure to check in on the band again soon, as they have confirmed that they plan on …
