Bones Drops ‘Skinny’ Mixtape

“Back again with something new to hate. Back with another style to take.”

The enigmatic Los Angeles-based rapper known as Bones has followed up his excellent Garbage mixtape from earlier this year with yet another free effort in Skinny. Featuring 17 tracks of ’90s inspired, chilled-out, yet hard-as-fuck rap, Bones continues to deliver and assert his position on his internet-born throne.

For fans of Three 6 Mafia and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Skinny boasts big, trill beats and eerily beautiful, often ethereal samples to back Bones’ commanding flow. Most tracks clock in at a succinct minute an a half but the …

Entitled Unknown Memory, the forthcoming record which will feature fan-favorite “Yoshi City” is set to drop on September 23 according to a spacey teaser.

UTG Premiere: Johnny Lewis – “Uneasy Love”

Hear Riff Raff and Action Bronson Team Up on “Rookies of the Future”

When Jody Highroller puts anything out, it’s safe to bet the song will be as ridiculous as the rapper’s entire look. On his newest track, Riff Raff skirts around any incredible lines by relying on a pretty smooth beat, courtesy of Alchemist, and the hard-hitting words of fellow rapper Action Bronson. The song, titled “Rookies of The Future,” sees both men exchanging verses over the course of the 3-minute song, although truth be told, the song feels much longer in the best way possible.

Don’t forget to check out Action Bronson’s latest video, “Easy Rider,” which sees …

Jamie Mark Is Dead Movie Review

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Jamie Marks Is Dead’ Offers A Unique Supernatural Story

Film: Jamie Marks Is Dead
Starring: Cameron Monaghan, Noah Silver
Directed by: Carter Smith

Jamie Marks Is Dead finds new ground in the realm of adapted supernatural young adult fiction, but it’s not enough to create a thrilling viewing experience.

The title of Carter Smith’s latest film is as much a fact as it is a lie. Jamie Marks is indeed dead, but his spirit, or something akin to it, survives. His tiny frame, protected only by a torn pair of boy’s underwear, saunters through the town his living self once considered Hell both day and night. He doesn’t believe …

‘Dracula Untold’ International Trailer: Luke Evans Makes Bats Form A Fist

I wish that headline was a joke.

A new international trailer for Dracula Untold found its way online earlier this afternoon. The 92-second clip is a largely new take on the film’s longer first trailer, but there are a few new moments thrown in for added flavor. As the headline above teased, there is even a moment when Evans – presumably as Dracula – commands his army of bats to form a giant human fist and literally crush the opposition. You remember that from history class, right? Check out the trailer below:…

Foxygen And Star Power

Foxygen Stream New Track “Cosmic Vibrations”

Foxygen have a huge, ambitious record coming out next month. It’s a double album, spanning twenty-four tracks.

We’ve already heard “How Can You Really,” which could be dubbed an ’80s pop song mixed with a touch of ’50s dance hall music.

Now, we’ve got “Cosmic Vibrations,” which takes on a whole different persona, but still reaching towards the late ’70s, early ’80s for influences. It carries an almost Pink Floyd vibe; not as anthemic, but still has the huge goal of carrying that classic rock sound, without feeling forced or played out.…
