UTG PREMIERE: Look Out Love – “Never Know”

Pop rock’s never sounded so luscious.

That’s the first thing that comes to mind when hearing Look Out Love’s new single, “Never Know.” The song swings and grooves and contains one of the most passionately unique vocal deliveries for a pop rock song released in recent memory. It mixes elements of an indie rock nature while still staying true to a pop rock backbone — the best of both avenues.

The song comes off of Look Out Love’s new EP, Oh Boy, which is due out Sept. 1. Look Out Love mastermind Jordan Benker had this to say …

Rustie’s Remix Of Ginuwine’s “Pony” Might Change Your Life

Magic Mike XXL was everything fans of the series could have hope it would be, but yesterday we discovered one unused song from the film that might have made things even better.

EDM favorite Rustie revealed to the world Monday afternoon that he had created a remix of Ginuwine’s classic track “Pony” for the Channing Tatum-led sequel, but the song was ultimately cut from the film ahead of its official release. Rustie didn’t know what to do with the song otherwise, so he decided to throw it up online for fans to enjoy. You can stream the track below.

Polyenso Share Tranquil New Single, “Osaka Son”

Late yesterday, Polyenso graced the interwebs with a dreamy new single titled “Osaka Son,” taken from their impending sophomore LP, Pure In The Plastic. Give it a listen below (via Consequence Of Sound).

“This song is about head versus heart,” vocalist Alex Schultz told COS. “In this case, you’re focusing on the head. It’s about all of those things you do throughout your life–big and small–that may not fulfill your soul, but for the meantime, you’re content because you’ve satisfied some kind of immediate desire. Like sleeping with someone you don’t love, or spending frivolously on things outside …

UTG PREMIERE: Stream Zach Zeller & The Crooked Timbers’ Self-Titled Debut

Three long years ago, we featured California’s Zach Zeller & The Crooked Timbers with some early tracks from the still-budding band. We later premiered the debut self-titled album from frontman Zach Zeller’s other band, Belda Beast. Now, we’re thrilled to have the exclusive first stream of Zeller’s solo project turned full band’s self-titled debut as well. Zach Zeller & The Crooked Timbers will be officially released on August 1 through Around Town Collective.

In regards to the album, Zeller tells us, “We recorded the album at Origami Recording Lounge in Chico, CA (owned and operated by our keys …

Stream We Came As Romans’ New, Self-Titled Album

Detroit’s We Came As Romans have begun streaming their new self-titled effort ahead of its July 24 release through Equal Vision Records. Give it a listen below.

“We wound up self-titling it for a reason,” vocalist Dave Stephens told Huffington Post earlier this week. “The six of us really came together creatively on it. It was the first time we just wrote really honestly. We wrote straight from the heart. We didn’t try to censor anything or hold back at all. Same thing musically, we wrote exactly what we wanted to hear, what we wanted to play. We weren’t worried …

Counterparts Stream ‘Tragedy Will Find Us’ In Full

Canadian melodic hardcore band Counterparts are streaming their Pure Noise Records debut Tragedy Will Find Us in full, ahead of its July 24 release date. Listen to the record below via Noisey.

Tragedy Will Find Us doubles down on the band’s technical hardcore elements found on previous full-lengths, The Current Will Carry Us and The Difference Between Hell And Home, while picking up the pace with more aggressive vocals, faster tempos from the first track, and occasional spoken word elements. Tragedy Will Find Us shows Counterparts shedding any excess and dovetailing perfectly into their niche sound with their …

Lana Del Rey Releases Title Track From ‘Honeymoon’

One of the indie music landscape’s most divisive acts, Lana Del Rey, has released her latest single. The new track is called “Honeymoon,” and comes from the album of the same name. You can watch the official lyric video embedded below.

As far as Lana Del Rey songs go, “Honeymoon” is pretty standard fare. A slow, stretched out instrumental, Lana’s delicate voice crooning on top, romanticized lyricism – you get the picture. If you’ve liked her previous material, you’ll probably enjoy this song. Otherwise, it probably won’t change your mind. Give the song a listen below.…

Run The Jewels Miss Obvious “Purrly” Pun, Release “Meowrly” From ‘Meow The Jewels’

If you’ve been following Run The Jewels in any capacity since last year’s Run The Jewels 2, you’re probably aware of Meow The Jewels, the project in which El-P recreates the duo’s entire sophomore record using nothing but cat noises. We’ve heard a few sneak peeks of the project via Instagram videos, but RTJ has finally released a full track via Soundcloud. Check out the awkwardly titled “Meowrly” below.

According to tweets from El-P, this track was produced by BOOTS. Surprisingly, the awkward mish-mash of purrs and meows sounds decent with Killer Mike rapping the now-familiar “Early” …

Fashioncore Is Alive & Well: Atreyu Share “Long Live” Video

Remember the glory days of new millennium post-hardcore? I’m talking about the period between 2004 and 2008 when Victory Records pretty much set the bar for quality in every variation of ‘heavy’ alternative music. There were so many great bands then, and only a select few remain today, with Silverstein arguably being the most successful of the bunch. I love them and always will, but if I had to choose the band that defined this period, at least for me, it would have to be the almighty Atreyu.

Blending elements of emo, hardcore, punk and metal to create something …

It’s Hard To Be “Bored” While Listening To The Obsessives

Near Mint Records took a chance on The Obsessives when their label launched in the middle of 2014. The band, which hails from Washington D.C., had only just begun to gain the attention of the music industry at large, but that didn’t stop co-founders James Cassar and Corey Purvis from putting their faith and money into the group’s dreams. A tape was made, the first of what would become many for the little label, and it sold out in no time at all.

Fast-forward one year and The Obsessives are about to become the first band to release a …
