Code Orange Stream Crushing New LP, ‘I Am King’

The time has come, and if you haven’t prepared- well, that’s on you.

Consequence Of Sound have the distinct pleasure today of premiering one of this year’s most anticipated heavy releases. Code Orange‘s I Am King has been blowing up radars for the past two months since its reveal with various tastes of what’s to come on September 2 through Deathwish Inc. Produced by founding Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou at God City Studios in Salem, Massachusetts, I Am King is the followup to the Pittsburgh band’s 2012 release, Love is Love/Return to Dust, and their first effort since …

The Color Morale‘s new album, Hold On Pain Ends, is set to hit stores next Tuesday, September 2. The band teamed up with Pandora to stream the album early for fans, and you can find that stream by heading here.

Hold On Pain Ends is the band’s fourth studio album, and is the second studio release in only 18 months. The group has found their niche in the post hardcore scene as a band who uses their talents to spread messages of hope. This album is certainly no different, and follows the same style as their last …


Polyphia Stream ‘Muse’ In Full

Polyphia‘s debut full-length album, Muse, is set to be released on September 2. As a treat to fans, the group has posted the entire album up on YouTube to stream a little bit early. It’s also available to stream beneath the break.

Unlike bands like Explosions In The Sky, who utilize many elements aside from guitars, Polyphia mostly focus on intricate guitar work to carry each song. What also makes this release a bit more unique is the fact that they have a handful of talented guitarists who are featured throughout the album. Though the artists aren’t …

Ariana Grande Releases 4 New Songs, Including A Track With The Weeknd

We have less than a week to go before the release of Ariana Grande‘s sophomore LP, My Everything, and to the surprise of almost everyone the album has yet to leak. This is great news for Grande, and even better news for her PR team, as it allows them the freedom to share the still unreleased tracks at their discretion.

Today, Ariana Grande partnered with our friends at MTV to share four unreleased songs from My Everything. Among them, a duet with The Weeknd titled “Love Me Harder” sticks out as a potential single. You can stream …

Ty Segall Manipulator

ALBUM STREAM: Ty Segall – ‘Manipulator’

The god of garage rock is back. After a rousing performance on Conan last week, Ty Segall is now prepped and ready to share his whole album with the world. In anticipation of its release, he’s streaming Manipulator in full before it comes out August 26 via Drag City.

Instead of whipping out an album’s worth of songs in two days, Segall took his time in studio with producer Chris Woodhouse (Thee Oh Sees, !!!, Wild Flag) this time around. He’s decided to keep the 1000 lbs. of fuzz that plod around his songs, but pile on orchestration, strings, and …

Listen to Aviator’s Hard-Hitting ‘Head In The Clouds, Hands In The Dirt’ In Full

Since announcing their singing to No Sleep Records back in April, Boston’s Aviator have been busy at work promoting and getting ready for the release of their latest full-length Head In The Clouds, Hands In The Dirt since it was announced to the public.

More recently, they secured themselves a spot on the first ever NSR tour alongside Rescuer and The Felix Culpa and earlier this month, the band premiered a music video for third track, “There Was A Light (It Went Out)” on Brooklyn Vegan.

Now you can hear the highly anticipated full-length from Aviator below or right …

Stream Henrietta’s ‘The Trick Is Not Minding’ In Its Entirety

We had the great honor of premiering a song by Henrietta earlier this month, and to be perfectly honest I was unfamiliar with the band up to that point. Since that day, however, I have quickly fallen in love with everything Henrietta deliver through their music. It’s almost impossible to describe the way their upcoming album, The Trick Is Not Minding, makes me feel. Fortunately, thanks to Purevolume I no longer have to explain anything because I can simply share the record with all of you.

Today, the members of Henrietta partnered with Purevolume to launch a full album …


REVIEW: Wiz Khalifa – ‘Blacc Hollywood’

Artist: Wiz Khalifa
Album: Blacc Hollywood
Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

On his third studio album, Wiz Khalifa has recorded a collection of potential radio singles that offer little cohesion, but plenty of reasons to have a good time.

Wiz Khalifa is to music what Doug Benson is to comedy; and by that I mean they’re both a variation of Cheech and Chong for a new generation. They’ve all managed to make careers out of embracing their love of marijuana. As long as they continue to carry the torch of weed, and all the things it can do to improve life for those …

adage rock band

UTG Premiere: Adage – ‘Defined’ EP

With the exception of five or six bands, the world of radio-ready rock and roll has been incredibly underwhelming in recent years. Most bands seem to have no problem finding a way to reach large audiences, but very few have mastered the art of developing a career that can be sustained – if not built upon – for many years to come. Adage are still a young band, but their debut EP gives us hope that a bright, lasting career may be on the horizon.

Last month, one of the several hundred pitches to roll through our inbox featuring bands …


Stream Imogen Heap’s Inventive And International New Album ‘Sparks’

Sparks isn’t so much an album as it is an unparalleled project and experiment. Collaboration is a necessary part of almost all music, but the new work from Imogen Heap spans countries, peoples, and technologies like few others.

Ann Powers’ introductory piece for NPR’s First Listen series, which is streaming the album, can’t help but be a laundry list of the stories behind each song. It’s a rather unique laundry list, though, including items like Deadmau5, a documentary, an ever-expanding biographical track, 13 pianos across Edinburgh, a running app, and so much more. Each story could be its …
