iLoveMakonnen Is Planning To Steal Your Girl With His New Track

If French Montana is known for repetitively saying “Hanh!,” then iLoveMakonnen may soon be known for his use of “Huuuuuuughhhhhh!” on his latest track.

Kicking off the weekend with a party track sure to have clubs and frats going crazy, iLoveMakonnen dropped “Where Your Girl At” seemingly out of the blue. The song finds the rapper asking for your girl because, if you can’t figure out the most obvious of plots, he’s trying to steal her for the night. He’s not looking for a wife however, so he’s completely willing to let you have her back later. Being the good …

UTG INTERVIEW: Patrick Brice Discusses His New Film, ‘The Overnight’

It’s hard to throw a stone in the world of modern indie movies without hitting some up and coming filmmaker who one or more publications has dubbed the latest ‘visionary’ storyteller. Everyone has someone they’re rooting for in the race to see who graduates from one-time genius to career-long writer/director who influences countless future storytellers, and for me there is no one with more promise or talent working right now than Patrick Brice. He’s delivered two incredibly different and immensely entertaining films over the last year, each pushing genre boundaries in ways rarely, if ever seen before. Like Mark Duplass …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Creep’ Is Incredibly Unsettling

Film: Creep
Starring: Patrick Brice, Mark Duplass
Directed By: Patrick Brice

I have never seen a found footage film quite like Creep, but I always wanted to. It’s a combination of horror, drama, and comedy that is so tightly wound that you never know what to expect from one moment to the next. Credit for this is owed as much to the script as it is to the cast, which consists of just two people, and even though I know it’s still a bit early in 2015 to say such things, I must admit I walked away from Patrick …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Ted 2′ Is The First Major Misfire Of Summer 2015

Film: Ted 2
Starring: Mark Wahlberg, Seth MacFarlane
Directed By: Seth MacFarlane

Having established a new hero in the world of profane comedy with his initial outing, Seth MacFarlane has proven with Ted 2 what A Million Ways To Die In The West alluded to over a year ago: America’s turn of the millennium funnyman has lost his charm. To make matters worse, he’s pulling Mark Wahlberg, Amanda Seyfried, John Slattery, and Morgan Freeman down with him.

Taking place one year, one marriage, and one divorce after we last said goodbye, Ted 2 reintroduces the characters you loved from the …

Game & Drake Swap Bars About The Realities Of Fame On “100″

The Game and Drake just delivered a new single that is destined to take hip-hop by storm in no time at all.

Remember when Drake was spotted dropping a few unreleased bars to a sold out Detroit crowd late last month? That so-called freestyle was actually an unannounced preview for the Toronto native’s latest collaboration with California heavyweight The Game. “100″ finds the two top shelf emcees swapping bars that address the snakes in the grass who think they slink by unseen, as well as the reality of pursuing your dreams in a time where most feel unable to even …

Avalanche-Sharks-Review

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Avalanche Sharks’ Has Bite, But No Brains

Film: Avalanche Sharks
Starring: Alexander Mendeluk, Kate Nauta
Directed By: Scott Wheeler

Monster movies have never been for everybody. From the dawn of cinema–when the likes of King Kong first appeared–there have been some who simply do not grasp why so many people enjoy watching poorly realized fictional creatures terrorize people on screen. I’ve never been one of those people, but I’ve certainly known a few. I’ve even dated a couple (if we’re being completely honest) but eventually their inability to appreciate the fantastic goodness of b-movie carnage drove a wedge between us that no amount of sweet nothings could …

You Can Now Listen To The New Refused Album, ‘Freedom’

It has been over seventeen years since their last full-length album, The Shape Of Punk to Come; but Swedish punk band Refused are finally back with new material. Due out on June 30 via Epitaph, Freedom is produced by Nick Launay (Arcade Fire, Yeah Yeah Yeahs).

“It’s not a reunion anymore,” frontman Dennis Lyxzén shares. “This is one of the most radical things we’ve ever done, both musically and lyrically. Nobody wanted us to fuck with the image of the band who makes a great album and splits up,” drummer David Sandström adds. “Nobody wanted us to dilute it. That …

Dope-Movie-Review

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Dope’ Is A Fittingly Titled Teen Masterpiece

Film: Dope
Starring: Shameik Moore, A$AP Rocky
Directed By: Rick Famuyiwa

Every year audiences are given numerous coming-of-age tales based around themes of self-discovery and love, but what ever happened to growing up in response to the stupid decisions we make when we’re young? Dope, the latest feature from writer/director Rick Famuyiwa, has the answer.

Malcolm is a promising young teen growing up in a rough neighborhood who, along with his two equally nerdy best friends, has a punk band and dresses as if he fell out of an early ’90s hip-hop video. Every decision Malcolm has made up …

Foreign Tongues Launch Pre-Orders For Debut LP, Stream New Track

In case you weren’t unaware, I really like Foreign Tongues.

The New England-based act are gearing up to release their debut LP, Fragile, As Said Before, on July 24 via No Sleep. Pre-orders are live here.

Substream is premiering a new track from the LP, “Assembly,” which is a heartbreaking cut about dealing with the loss of a friend from suicide. The band melds influences varying from The National, The Cure, and more, blending beautifully into a heartbreaking, yet sonically soaring track.

Stream the fantastic new single from Foreign Tongues after the jump.…

UTG PREMIERE: Good Old War – “Tell Me What You Want From Me” (Acoustic Video)

Philadelphia folk-pop duo Good Old War are set to release their fourth full-length studio album next week on June 29, via Nettwerk – their first without longtime drummer Tim Arnold.

Today, we’re excited to premiere an impeccable, bare-bones rendition of Broken Into Better Shape‘s lead single–possibly Good Old War’s biggest song to date–”Tell Me What You Want From Me.” Performed at the Mobli Beach House in Venice, CA, the setting is perfect for this stripped-down version, which allows a generous focus on the duo’s signature vocal harmonies. You can view the video below where you’ll also find a …
