Following their 2011 fourth studio album, Nine Types Of Light, TVOTR has embraced the poppier and more electronic side of indie music, and it evidently translates very well live. While another music video of “Happy Idiot” that featured Pee-Wee Herman and Karen Gillan has surfaced, you can now check out the band’s live performance at Letterman below.

UTG writer Drew Caruso gave TV On The Radio’s Seeds an 8/10. You can read what he thought of it here.

God only knows how to pronounce that.

Like virtually all of the band’s music, “Pop It” is a fun and bouncy chiptune song with an equally cute music video. Between the balloon-popping girl with a balloon obstructing the view of her face and a kiddie pool full of balloons, things get weird, as they should.

James Blake isn’t one to take a break. While the UK crooner and electronic producer’s last album, Overgrown, came out in 2012, he’s been hard at work since, touring the globe, DJing sets, and dropping new songs “200 Press” and “Building It Still.” Now, the singer-songwriter has announced his next album is on the way.

In an interview with the Miami New Times (via CoS), Blake said that the new album is “seventy percent done” and should drop in “about five months.” For those of you following his mini updates, the Kanye West rumors are true. It seems the album will likely feature the notorious rapper: “It looks like we should be able to get something done. I know that there’s a specific song I would like him to be on, and if he can do that by the time my record comes out, that would be fantastic.”

Read more from his interview below:

“I’m working hard and doing my best—I’m aware that people want to hear this record, so I’m not being complacent. I should hope that [the new album] will be a step on, as much as the second one was to the first. I guess I’ve taken a focus on the songwriting again, even more closely, and I’m dabbling in some different production techniques, things I’ve developed… A lot of things have changed in my life since the last record, and overall for the better, so I’m in a good place, I think. I’m in a good place to write in general, and I have been for quite a while.”

The third installment of the series, Mockingjay — Part 1, premiered this weekend to $123 million dollars.

They may be high, but in comparison to the $152+ million opening supplied by the 2012 Hunger Games film, these numbers do come in a little stale. However, things will certainly pick up as we approach the holiday season, starting with Thanksgiving weekend.

The expanded package includes new songs, outtakes, and that crisp vinyl sound all wrapped up neatly in clean packaging. One of the album’s original songs, “Windows,” has just gotten music video treatment in anticipation of the release.

Directed by Rick Alverson, the video sees Angel Olsen at a particularly dampening time. She watches as children play in a field, stares ahead blankly while Vaseline is smeared on her face, and stands disconnected in Elizabethan clothes that seem heavy with unfamiliarity. In a statement about the video, Olsen said, “I gave [Alverson] total freedom to set the tone and I wanted only to be present within it. I wanted to make something cinematic and forward, and I believe he did that here.” Both visually stunning and contextually confusing, the entire piece is just that: a perfect fit for this haunting, ethereal ballad.

A little less than two weeks ago they were forced to cancel a handful of dates due to their van breaking down. Now the group has announced they will actually have to cancel their appearances at all of the remaining dates on their tour because of a medical emergency.

The band posted on Facebook to let fans know their drummer, Adam Gray, was admitted to the hospital for a severe medical emergency. You can read all of what they had to say below.

We’re so sorry to say this but we unfortunately will not be able to attend any of the remaining dates of our current Canadian tour, due to a sudden and severe medical emergency for Adam. After seeing multiple doctors and an overnight stay in the hospital, we’re told that he will be completely okay – and will be back at the drum kit soon – but with that we need to get him back home and let him rest up for the time being. Hoping for a speedy recovery and we’ll do our best to keep you updated!

Canada, we were so looking forward to this tour and apologize for all of the cancelled dates. We, of course, plan to make it up to you sometime soon. Our friends in Within The Ruins will continue on the tour without us, so please be sure to go out and support them!
Please leave positive comments for Adam below.

Ben Howard Directs His Own Beautiful Video For “I Forget Where We Were” http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/11/21/ben-howard-directs-his-own-beautiful-video-for-i-forget-where-we-were/ http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/11/21/ben-howard-directs-his-own-beautiful-video-for-i-forget-where-we-were/#comments Fri, 21 Nov 2014 16:51:09 +0000 http://www.underthegunreview.net/?p=1138641 Ben Howard released his second full-length record, I Forget Where We Were, just last month, with plenty of time to shoot to the top of several music lovers’ ‘best of’ lists for 2014 – some of ours here at UTG included.

For the title track’s video, Howard decided to get behind the camera and try his hand at a bit of directing, a choice that seems to be unanimously agreed upon as a wise one.

Ben Howard released his second full-length record, I Forget Where We Were, just last month, with plenty of time to shoot to the top of several music lovers’ ‘best of’ lists for 2014 – some of ours here at UTG included.

For the title track’s video, Howard decided to get behind the camera and try his hand at a bit of directing, a choice that seems to be unanimously agreed upon as a wise one. The entire album explores some of the most poignant and affecting lyricism of the year, and the visuals for “I Forget Where We Were” complement them beautifully with metaphors that portray the hardships and distances that can come between two people, along with changes that must be made in order to rectify the cold rift. Howard’s directorial debut stars Danny Fox and Tatiana Kartomten.

You can experience Ben Howard’s video for his newest album’s title track below, and purchase a copy of the record yourself via iTunes or Howard’s webstore.

Under The Gun sent photographer, Derek Scancarelli, to Irving Plaza in New York City to photograph Anberlin’s Final Tour on November 16, 2014.

Over a decade ago, Anberlin released their first full-length album, Blueprints for the Black Market. In 2014, the band released a studio album entitled Lowborn before they embarked on their final tour ever. On November 26, the band will play their last show with ’68 at the House of Blues in Orlando, FL.

Anberlin took over New York City last weekend, playing two sold-out shows to Irving Plaza. Almost immediately, vocalist Stephen Christian made his way into the crowd to ensure the performance was as intimate as possible. Mike Herrera of MxPx served as a tasteful and subtle opener to a show that was really driven by die-hard lovers of music, not just some over-saturated tour package. Following the two performances, the band took to the Gramercy Theatre to perform their 2007 release, Cities, in its entirety.

Check below the jump to see photos from one of the shows at Irving Plaza and to view Anberlin’s few remaining tour dates.

NEW EMINEM: Slaughterhouse And Yelawolf Join Slim On “Psychopath Killer” http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/11/21/new-eminem-slaughterhouse-and-yelawolf-join-slim-on-psychopath-killer/ http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/11/21/new-eminem-slaughterhouse-and-yelawolf-join-slim-on-psychopath-killer/#comments Fri, 21 Nov 2014 15:16:43 +0000 http://www.underthegunreview.net/?p=1138630 Eminem dropped a new track yesterday from his upcoming release Shady XV, featuring Slaughterhouse and Alabama’s own Yelawolf.

Mr. Mathers has been making headlines seemingly every day for the past few weeks, whether for jabs at Lana Del Rey or Iggy Azalea. But for as long as he keeps coming out with fire tracks, the primary task at hand should be giving them a listen regardless of your stance on his controversial lyricism.

Mr. Mathers has been making headlines seemingly every day for the past few weeks, whether for jabs at Lana Del Rey or Iggy Azalea. But for as long as he keeps coming out with fire tracks, the primary task at hand should be giving them a listen regardless of your stance on his controversial lyricism.

Shady XV is set to come out this Monday, November 24, just one year following his return to the #1 spot on the Billboard Top 200 with The Marshall Mathers LP2. The compilation will include new and throwback tracks from the Shady Records universe. Do you think Slim Shady can hit first place again? Let us know in the comments and listen to “Psychopath Killer” after the jump.
