Mumford 'Wild Mind'

Mumford And Sons Announce New Album, ‘Wilder Mind’

Earlier in the day, Mumford and Sons officially ended their longstanding hiatus by announcing that their third full-length album, Wilder Mind, would be arriving on May 4 via Glassnote Records. Check out a teaser for the London quartet’s latest undertaking after the break.

According to lead vocalist Marcus Mumford, the outfit’s forthcoming effort will lack the signature folk elements of 2012′s Babel, as former banjoist Winston Marshall has now embraced the electric guitar full-time.

“We felt that doing the same thing, or the same instrumentation again, just wasn’t for us,” Mumford recently told Rolling Stone. “We’ve …

Action Bronson and Chance The Rapper Share “Baby Blue”

The release of Action Bronson‘s long-awaited debut album is just weeks away, and earlier today the New York native shared a monstrous new single titled “Baby Blue.”

Co-written by Zane Lowe and produced by “Uptown Funk” creator Mark Ronson, the latest cut from Mr. Wonderful finds Action Bronson swapping bars with Chance The Rapper over a piano-heavy beat. It’s a lot lighter in tone than the title may lead you to believe, but there is a sense of heartache in several bars that is far too palpable to ignore. Bronson shines brightest, but Chance’s vocals on the hook …

Kanye West Shares Studio Version Of “All Day”

Following a live premiere during the BRIT awards last week, Kanye West has shared the studio version of “All Day.”

Rumored to be the latest single from West’s highly-anticipated new album, “All Day” is an high energy track that bangs even harder now than it did during its premiere (which came complete with flamethrowers). It’s an ego-fueled, give-no-fucks ode to the crazy level of success, fame, and sophistication Kanye believes to have achieved in his life. Theophilus London and newcomer Allan London help round out the hooks, but when all is said and done it’s only Kanye that people will …

M83 Stream “Holes In The Sky” Featuring HAIM

Whether or not you care about Insurgent, the fast-approaching sequel to the 2014 film Divergent, does not matter right now. The song you’re about to enjoy is taken from the film’s soundtrack, but your personal excitement (or lack thereof) for that particular feature should not impact how you view the song included in this post. It’s awesome, and it would be awesome regardless of how Insurgent performs. Good music is good music, plain and simple.

OKAY. Now that we have all that out of the way, I need to tell you about “Holes In The Sky.” Created by …

ATTN Internet: Brand New to Re-Press ‘Deja Entendu’ on Vinyl For Record Store Day 2015

Happy Monday, Internet!

Brand New has announced they will finally re-press Deja Entendu on vinyl after the 2003 album has become increasingly (and frustratingly) elusive for years, with copies going for upwards of $500 on ebay.

And while this announcement might spell the end of at least one rather comedic tumblr account, it will undoubtedly be celebrated by both vinyl collectors and Brand New’s legions of fans.

The re-issue will first hit stores on Record Store Day (April 18) as a double LP on black 180-gram vinyl. The RSD-exclusive version will be limited to 1,500 copies featuring special packaging …

You’re Going To Really, Really, Really Like The New Carly Rae Jepson Single

Carly Rae Jepsen may have just done the impossible. Though many believed it could never be done, it seems the Canadian vocalist has finally recorded a song that may surpass the catchiness and lasting popularity of “Call Me Maybe.”

Earlier this morning, March 2, Carly Rae Jepsen shared a new song with the world titled “I Really Like You.” The sugar-coated pop anthem offers a high energy tale of love, or at least a crush, and the rush of excitement that follows that first encounter with someone special. The hook may be the simplest chorus of the last year, and …

Tonight Alive

Watch Tonight Alive’s Jenna McDougall Stop Security From Choking Fan Mid-Show

When Australia pop rock outfit Tonight Alive first burst onto the international alternative scene there were some who were quick to call their punk/edge into question. It may say 2015 on our calendars, but for whatever reason there are still trolls hiding in various corners of the planet who do not believe female-led bands can be as tough as bands filled with all male members. If that description applies to you, and I truly hope it does not, then all I have to say is that your world view is about to be changed.

Over the weekend, Tonight Alive were …

“Whole” is Australian singer-songwriter Ruby Nightingale’s first single off of her upcoming debut full-length record entitled Sleeping In Pashminas. Due out on March 10, the Hong Kong-raised, Connecticut-based indie/folk vocalist calls to mind the likes of Marissa Nadler, Laura Marling, and Angus & Julia Stevens. She has two previously released EPs and is very excited for what’s to come. Ruby shares:

“Seeing this record come together with the full band has been so incredibly fulfilling, and has really shown me my own music in a much larger light. It also contains some of the most

UTG PHOTOS: Doomtree at the Highline Ballroom in NYC (2/17/15)

Under The Gun Review sent photographer, Kellie Gannon, to The Highline Ballroom in New York City to photograph Doomtree on February 17, 2015.

Fans of the Minneapolis-based hip-hop collective Doomtree went absolutely ape-shit back in December upon the announcement that Doomtree would be returning to the stage in early 2015 with new music. Along with this announcement came the release of a new single titled “Gray Duck” which was actually the second single put out from the album. Back in the summer, “.38 Airweight” premiered but it wasn’t until December that the track list, album name, …

The Hunting Party Premiere “To Be Us”

New York Americana outfit The Hunting Party are one of those acts who seem to have a knack for writing music with an air of a timeless nature.

“To Be Us,” a track hailing from the group’s brand new EP, Sirens and Lights, exemplifies this notion as funky electric guitar-work and climactic keys alike complement a powerful vocal performance from front-woman Erica Lane as she turns three words into a truly catchy chorus.

The cut’s accompanying music video finds the band dressed up in formal wear while performing in a glittery room, a fitting visual piece that can be …
