UTG PREMIERE: Controller – “Midnight Man”

For some, music is a very personal, very cathartic way of dealing with life’s daily stresses, but for many more, it’s a reason to let loose, unwind, and have a good time. If the latter is your aim, then you’ll likely feel right at home with Controller; the NYC quartet are undeniably upbeat and infectious, making them an essential addition to your regular rotation.

Today, we have the esteemed pleasure of premiering the outfit’s brand new single, “Midnight Man,” a synth-driven dance party that comes fully-equipped with a rug-cutting refrain and a sick sax solo. Listen in below, and …

‘Danish Girl’ Trailer: Oscar Season Has Officially Begun

The first trailer for Tom Hooper’s long-awaited new film has arrived, and it’s every bit as poised for awards season glory as early reveals seemed to tease.

Set in the 1920s, The Danish Girl tells the true love story of Danish artist Einar Wegener and her wife Gerda as she makes the pioneering journey to becoming a woman, Lili Elbe. It’s Wegener’s wife who more or less introduces her to the notion of being a woman, and she stands by her side as she begins to explore her new identity. Troubles eventually arise however, and the couple’s love is put …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Addicted To Fresno’ Is One Of 2015’s Best Comedies

Film: Addicted To Fresno
Starring: Judy Greer, Natasha Lyonne
Directed by: Jamie Babbit

Addicted To Fresno is the bold and unflinchingly hilarious comedy you never knew you needed to see. It’s the perfect response to anyone who claims women can’t be funny, as well as anyone who believes every movie needs romance or a male lead.

Shannon and Martha are two sisters who share an unshakeable bond. The eldest, Shannon, was recently released from sex rehab after landing herself on the national sex offender registry. The baby of the family, Martha, was able to secure her big sister a position …

First ‘Old 37’ Trailer Will Make You Think Twice Before Calling 9-1-1

Two of horror’s biggest stars have finally come together for a tale of highway terror you won’t soon forget.

Old 37 tells of a quiet stretch of road in upstate New York where those who call 9-1-1 reach someone other than the police. An ambulance will still arrive, and men who claim to be paramedics will still help you, but there is no hospital at the end of the road. There is nothing except pain. The kind of pain that nightmares are made out of, and it’s being inflicted by two brothers hellbent on carnage

REST IN PEACE: Wes Craven (1939-2015)

According to a number of reputable sources, iconic horror director Wes Craven died Sunday evening following an ongoing battle with brain cancer. He was 76 years old.

Born August 2, 1939, in Cleveland, Ohio, Craven began his professional career in academia before taking a job as a sound editor for a post-production company based in New York. This change of scenery eventually attributed to his first credited feature, The Last House On The Left, which he wrote, directed, and edited in 1972. While this initial shocker was followed by a string of other notable titles (The People

REVIEW: Carly Rae Jepsen – ‘E•MO•TION’

Artist: Carly Rae Jepsen
Album: E•MO•TION
Genre: Pop

We live in a very saturated world. One filled with the over-commercialization of art, trends, clothing, technology, everything. When something takes off, it soars to a point far beyond want, desire, or demand, but, within this generalization of “needing” too much, there is a romanticism buried beneath the “stuff” imposed on us, living within simplistic, exaggerated, fun.

I speak of this with direct correlation to Carly Rae Jepsen‘s third album, and total banger, E•MO•TION. Pop usually isn’t my cup of tea, and I am surely put off by the half-assed, …

Miley Cyrus Her Dead Petz

Listen To Miley Cyrus’ Strange New Album, ‘Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz’

Unless you made an excellent decision by entirely avoiding the internet during last night’s MTV Video Music Awards, you probably already know that Miley Cyrus hosted the train-wreck affair. You also probably know that she took every opportunity to remind the crowd that she’s a hip youngster who partakes in smoking the pot, and she closed out the night by performing a new song called “Dooo It!” with The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne. As the credits rolled, Miley announced that her new record titled Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz is already available as a free download, as previously speculated
