Following an excellent debut EP in 2012, the band is finally streaming their first LP–which releases today–through Bandcamp.

Featuring the fast-paced, rifftastic, pop-punk stylings that were prominent in Rufio’s discography, all fronted by Sellers’ recognizable vocals, Let Me Live certainly fills the void left by the departure of one of the most talented bands in the scene in the mid to late 2000s.

If you were ever a fan of the almighty Rufio, then frontman Scott Sellers’ newest project in Mercy Street should be right up your alley. Following an excellent debut EP in 2012, the band is finally streaming their first LP–which releases today–through Bandcamp.

Featuring the fast-paced, rifftastic, pop-punk stylings that were prominent in Rufio’s discography, all fronted by Sellers’ recognizable vocals, Let Me Live certainly fills the void left by the departure of one of the most talented bands in the scene in the mid to late 2000s. Featuring 13 tracks–few of which break the three-minute mark–Mercy Street’s newest offering is a high-energy blast of catchy choruses, shredding guitars, and skate-punk drum beats that’ll having you reminiscing on the careers of bands like Slick Shoes and Dogwood.

You can stream Let Me Live in its entirety below and purchase a digital copy through Mercy Street’s Bandcamp.

I don’t know about you, but when I think about Have Mercy my mind immediately goes to the moody and emotional “Let’s Talk About Your Hair.” Their latest, “Howl,” maintains the strong lyricism of that track and pairs it with a driving rock sound that is far more upbeat than fans may be expecting. There are some who have compared the group’s writing style to that of The Spill Canvas in their prime, and this definitely brings One Fell Swoop to mind, in addition to several other mid-2000s alt/punk outfits.

Still, in the midst of what seems to be a wide variety of influences, Have Mercy find a way to make the whole affair their own in an incredibly catchy and infectious way. You can stream “Howl” below:

Have Mercy will release their new album, A Place Of Our Own, on October 27 via Hopeless Records.

Young Thug, Rich Homie Quan, and Birdman have finally released their collaborative mixtape. It’s not exactly what we expected, but it’s guaranteed to keep you bobbing along for many weeks to come.

Released under the guise of the Rich Gang, The Tour: Part One found its way online earlier today following months of blog promotion. The London On Da Track produced effort features twenty brand new tracks with absolutely no guest appearances. Considering the amount of material both Quan and Thugga Thugga have been putting out as of late, the fact there are twenty MORE songs waiting to be heard is kind of surprising. You can stream and download the album, in full, at the end of this post.

“I met Thug, flew him to L.A. to come see me and we connected from there, then Quan came to the table. I always believed in unity, that’s always been my thing,” Birdman told MTV News in early September. “They were already working on a project, them two, and I said, ‘Let’s do it together. Let me take it to the next level for y’all, ’cause I see y’all got the potential and the talent’.”

Crystal Caines has never made an appearance on UTG before this post, but after hearing her latest single I could quickly see the up and coming emcee become a regular on our front page.

Joined by the incredibly talented A$AP Ferg, who is in the midst of his own breakout year, Crystal Caines’ latest single is a hard-hitting track about putting in work and rubbing shoulders with those who deal in cocaine that you won’t soon forget. It’s the kind of unsuspecting production that is made almost entirely by the flow and aggression brought to the track by the emcees who dare to approach its structure. I can’t tell who rides the beat better, but there is not a dull moment in the entire track. The video is largely performance based, but it’s amusing. You can view the clip below:

I picture Ferg walking on set and requesting the addition of a horse to his sequences. It’s incredibly unnecessary, but for whatever reason he makes it work with that iron-clad sense of confidence that runs rampant throughout the A$AP Mob community.

Crystal Caines has an EP due by the end of the year, but at this point no release date has been set. Ferg is likely working on an album as well, but he’s keeping his future plans close to the chest for the time being. Stay tuned for updates.

New Slipknot Track “XIX” Finds Its Way Online http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/09/29/new-slipknot-track-xix-finds-its-way-online/ http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/09/29/new-slipknot-track-xix-finds-its-way-online/#comments Tue, 30 Sep 2014 03:59:37 +0000 http://www.underthegunreview.net/?p=1131957 “This song is not for the living. This song is for the dead.”

“XIX,” otherwise known as the opening track off Slipknot‘s highly-anticipated new album, has appeared online ahead of the record’s late October release. The track begins with a soft spoken Corey Taylor uttering the phrase above before transitioning into an acoustic-driven track that finds Taylor belting about how disconnected he feels from everything around him. He’s broken, alone, and contrary to what you might hear he is not doing well. He wants you to join him, and in many ways “XIX” serves as his call to arms. …

“This song is not for the living. This song is for the dead.”

“XIX,” otherwise known as the opening track off Slipknot‘s highly-anticipated new album, has appeared online ahead of the record’s late October release. The track begins with a soft spoken Corey Taylor uttering the phrase above before transitioning into an acoustic-driven track that finds Taylor belting about how disconnected he feels from everything around him. He’s broken, alone, and contrary to what you might hear he is not doing well. He wants you to join him, and in many ways “XIX” serves as his call to arms. Check it out:

I’ll be the first to admit that “XIX” feels a bit like a tease in the worst possible way. The track builds and builds to what should be the beginning of “Sarcastrophe,” but when that song does not begin you are left feeling a little unfulfilled. That’s temporary, however, and soon you will be able to enjoy the track in the context it was meant to be heard.

Slipknot’s new album, .5: The Gray Chapter, is scheduled for release on October 21 via Roadrunner Records. Pre-orders are now available on Amazon.comiTunes and through the official Slipknot store, which has a mass amount of bundles available.

‘Crouching Tiger’ Sequel to Hit Netflix and IMAX On The Same Day http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/09/29/crouching-tiger-sequel-to-hit-netflix-and-imax-on-the-same-day/ http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/09/29/crouching-tiger-sequel-to-hit-netflix-and-imax-on-the-same-day/#comments Tue, 30 Sep 2014 02:25:29 +0000 http://www.underthegunreview.net/?p=1131979 This is what we call a ‘game changer’ in the entertainment industry.

This is what we call a ‘game changer’ in the entertainment industry. Netflix has been eyeing first-run films for a very long time, and in the near future they will make that dream a reality.

Netflix and The Weinstein Co. have signed a deal to release the sequel to Ang Lee’s beloved Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon simultaneously on Netflix and in select IMAX theaters around the world. The film, which is titled Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend, will be released on August 28, 2015.

“The moviegoing experience is evolving quickly and profoundly, and Netflix is unquestionably at the forefront of that movement,” said TWC co-chairman Harvey Weinstein. “We are tremendously excited to be continuing our great relationship with Netflix and bringing to fans all over the world the latest chapter in this amazing and intriguing story.”

According to Netflix, Crouching Tiger 2 is one of many films that the company plans to release through a new same day-and-date promotional effort with IMAX. No additional titles have been revealed at this point, but we will keep you updated as additional films are revealed.

Most theater owners have taken a strong stance against same day-and-date films, which means Crouching Tiger 2 may have an incredibly limited IMAX release here in the states. Chains like Regal and AMC may not want to associate with the title for fear more films follow suit, leading to diminished receipts for the theaters over time. There will always be people who want the ‘theater experience,’ but if every film was also immediately available from the comfort of your own home at a reasonable price can you honestly say you would visit the cinema as often as you do now?

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was released in 2000 and went on to be nominated for best picture and win the best foreign language Oscar at the Academy Awards. You can view the film’s trailer below.

‘Clerks III’ Moving Forward As Financing Is Secured http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/09/29/clerks-iii-moving-forward-as-financing-is-secured/ http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/09/29/clerks-iii-moving-forward-as-financing-is-secured/#comments Tue, 30 Sep 2014 02:01:47 +0000 http://www.underthegunreview.net/?p=1131970 Kevin Smith has been teasing and talking about planning to make Clerks III for over a year at this point, but it was not until this week that the man behind the View Askew universe offered any hard evidence (outside his own tweets) that the film was moving forward.

Kevin Smith has been teasing and talking about planning to make Clerks III for over a year at this point, but it was not until this week that the man behind the View Askew universe offered any hard evidence (outside his own tweets) that the film was moving forward.

Speaking to a packed house during a recent recording of his Hollywood Babble-On podcast, Kevin Smith revealed that he was finally able to secure the financing needed to make Clerks III a reality. It seems the film was only made possible by the fact Smith chose to first make his latest release, Tusk. As Smith explained:

Tusk was the absolute bridge to Clerks III,” says Smith. “Because of Tusk, I got my financing for Clerks III. A year and change ago I was desperately trying to get Clerks III made for the 20th anniversary… I must have reeked of [desperation], because I couldn’t fucking find money and shit. But it was Tusk, with people going ‘Holy fuck, what else do you have?’ I was like, Clerks III and they’re like. ‘Done!’ Everybody that’s like, ‘He failed, he failed!’ I’m like, ‘Thank you, I failed into Clerks III!”

Tusk opened in 600 theaters, but only managed to make a little over $800,000 during its first weekend. The film has since accumulated $1.4 million at the domestic box office, with many foreign territories still awaiting release.

In our review of Tusk, editor James Shotwell summarized his thoughts with:

In a time where it seems every horror film either involves a house full of ghosts or CGI monsters, Kevin Smith has given us a reason to care about body horror once again. Even better, he’s done it using practical effects, great acting, and a budget small enough to remind everyone that anyone with an idea can make a good looking film.

Smith is currently working on a new film, Yoga Hosers, which is scheduled for release sometime in 2015. Production on Clerks III is expected to begin by 2016, but may be put on hold while Smith finishes his ‘true north’ trilogy with the Yoga Hoser follow-up, Moose Jaws (which is pretty much Jaws with a moose). We’ll bring you more information on the filmmaker’s plans as soon as additional information becomes available.

Few artists have the ability to instill a sense of excitement and fun in your average music fan quite like Aretha, and it’s not all that hard to understand why. For Decades, Aretha Franklin has been a beacon for all that is good and entertaining in the world of music. Even when her health began to fail, Franklin was a rock in the pop community, and her presence today is still as relevant as ever. Her take on Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” is the kind of dream recording you never think will ever actually get made, yet somehow it exists and we average Joes and Janes are allowed to hear it, for free, without having to break a single law. You can stream the track below:

Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics, which features 10 covers of both classic and contemporary hits, including Barbra Streisand’s “People,” Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive,” and Alicia Keys’ “No One,” is scheduled for released on October 21. Comment below and let us know your thoughts on the cover.

Saw turns 10 this year, and as several years have passed since Saw: The Final Chapter hit theaters the studio that helped reignite the public’s interest in torture-related horror is re-releasing James Wan’s masterpiece to select theaters beginning Thursday, October 30. Today, Universal Pictures revealed a poster and trailer for the limited engagement, which you can view at the end of this post.

This is as good a time as any to remind you that UTG’s long-running 31 Days Of Halloween feature will return for its third installment later this week. We have a slew of great horror films lined up for discussion, and though no Saw entries made the list we have arranged to highlight the $874 million dollar grossing franchise before the end of October. Stay tuned!

Stream Stars’ New Dance Single ‘No One Is Lost’ http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/09/29/stream-stars-new-dance-single-no-one-is-lost/ http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/09/29/stream-stars-new-dance-single-no-one-is-lost/#comments Tue, 30 Sep 2014 00:34:56 +0000 http://www.underthegunreview.net/?p=1131925 Canadian indie rock group Stars will put out their newest album, No One Is Lost, on October 14 via ATO Records. Today the band have shared the title track off that album to stream.

The single follows in line with what we previously knew, namely that the synthpop group recorded the album in a studio one floor above a discotheque. “No One Is Lost” is much more chipper and celebratory than previous single “From The Night.” We’re betting it’s thanks to that catchy chorus.

The first trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson’s adaptation of Thomas Pynchon’s Inherent Vice has found its way online ahead of the film’s winter release.

Opening with a bit of narration from Joanna Newsom that helps set up the plot of the film, as well as the tone of the story, the first trailer for Inherent Vice in briefly enticing before becoming borderline crazy. Once the basic premise has been revealed, viewers are given dozens of brief glimpses at the film, including shots of the A-list cast that helps bring it to life. You will probably walk away a little confused, but you will also feel entirely entertained. Check it out:

The official synopsis for Inherent Vice reads:

“Inherent Vice” is the seventh feature from Paul Thomas Anderson and the first film adaption of a Thomas Pynchon novel. When P.I. Doc Sportello’s ex-old lady shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a looney bin… well, easy for her to say. It’s the tail end of the `60s, paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that “love” is one of those words going around, like “trip” or “groovy,” that’s way too overused–except this one usually leads to trouble. With a cast of characters that includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, a murderous loan shark, LAPD Detectives, a tenor sax player working undercover and a mysterious entity known as the Golden Fang, which may only be a tax dodge set up by some dentists… Part surf noir, part psychedelic romp–all Thomas Pynchon.

Inherent Vice will receive a limited release (AKA qualifying run) on December 12, then will expand wide on January 9, 2015.

Canadian musician and producer Caribou, aka Dan Snaith, will release Our Love on October 7 via City Slang. It’s his sixth album to date and first full-length since 2010′s excellent Swim. So far we’ve heard the immersive “Can’t Do Without You” and title track, but now it’s time to hear the rest. Our Love is streaming in full over at iTunes Radio.

The 10-track effort is a soulful, organic, heartfelt release that features collaborations with Owen Pallett and Jessy Lanza. Snaith told Rolling Stone that he wanted to make something for everyone, not just electronic fans, to listen to. “That’s such a shift for me,” he says in the interview. “There’s more of me in the music than there ever has been, for sure. It used to be that I closed the doors, and the only thing that ended up in the music was whatever was spontaneously generated there and then. Now it’s much more typical that I’ll get to work for a couple hours on something, then I’ll take my daughter to a museum with some friends of ours. Everything is happening all at the same time and bottled up together. And I think that’s good.”

“Everything in love – with a partner or with a child or with your family or with your friends – all those things are complicated,” he added when talking about how much of his inspiration came from his daughter’s birth in 2011. “I hadn’t had those experiences before, the frustrations of having somebody that is not responding rationally or even understanding what you’re saying. One of the main things I took away from it was that the most important thing is just being there in each other’s presence. There are a lot of times where my daughter and I are just, like, sitting on the floor with a Lego or something, and that’s the important thing.”

Stream the album here and check out the album’s tracklist below. Pre-orders for the album are ongoing.

Our Love Tracklist:
01. Can’t Do Without You

Metal gurus Mastodon have just shared a new video for “The Motherload” from Once More ‘Round The Sun and it’s giving Minaj’s video a run for its money.

The video sees men in cloaks and women in minimal clothing taking over the floor to see who has the best dance moves. We’re all for friendly competition, but seeing the band perform next to close-up shots of the women feels a little too over-sexualized. It’s part of Minaj’s shtick — but is it part of theirs? …

With each bit we hear from Pianos Become The Teeth‘s Epitaph Records debut, Keep You, we grow accustomed to their somewhat drastic change in sound. The complete omission of screaming previously found throughout their catalogue has left many fans scratching their heads (and bitching), but we’re embracing the new sound as it makes for some of the best material we’ve heard so far this year.

Following the incredible single “Repine,” “Late Lives,” which premiered over at BrooklynVegan today, continues PBTT’s shift with a gorgeously poignant and quietly powerful offering that builds in both beauty and sadness over the course of its nearly four-minute runtime. Featuring a slow melody, soaring, post-rock guitar work and Kyle Durfey’s clean vocal display, “Late Lives” serves as one of the band’s strongest tracks to date.

Stream the new single below and pre-order your own copy of Keep You before it drops on October 28.
