A few days back, rising Los Angeles starlet Banks released her highly anticipated debut album, GODDESS, via Harvest Records. Intimate and haunting, if you have yet to secure a copy of your own, you can stream the entire 14-track effort by following the jump below.

This latest offering, which has been steadily climbing the ITunes charts since its debut, acts as a follow-up to the songstress’ 2013 London EP, and features production from SOHN, Lil Silva, Shlohmo, and many others. If you like what you hear, let us know in the replies.

Back in June, Banks wrapped up …

UTG ALBUM PREMIERE: Side Saddle – ‘The Astorian’

With a now defunct This Old Ghost in his rear-view mirror, frontman Ian McGuinness is continuing on down the road with his new enterprise, Side Saddle. What originally began as a solo side project has become a full-blown band, and McGuinness and friends are all set to release their excellent debut full-length, entitled The Astorian.

Full of lush layers, varied instrumentation and McGuinness’ welcomingly engaging vocals (which have never sounded better), The Astorian is overflowing with beautiful songwriting and impressive production that elevates the band’s addictive folk-pop tunes to a new level.

We couldn’t possibly be more thrilled …

sir sly

Sir Sly Stream Debut Album ‘You Haunt Me’ In Full

Early last year, I bought a Sir Sly 7″ single from Neon Gold based on one single song that I couldn’t get enough of. I’ve been waiting for their debut ever since.

The Los Angeles-based indie pop group began streaming that debut, entitled You Haunt Me, earlier this week over at Pigeons and Planes. As their little ghost logo and overcast album art might suggest, these songs stray from the bright, upbeat pop sounds currently ruling the gamut of their respective genre. There are darker themes here with solemn tones. That might sound boring to some but we …

Stream Generationals’ ‘Alix’ Just In Time To Close Out Summer

Sunny beats. Beachy vocals. Surf pop. I’m not entirely sure if any of those things are actually things but in the case of Generationals, I’m just going with it.

As the followup to last year’s Heza, the New Orleans duo’s newest, Alix, is everything you love about summer all wrapped up into one 10-track, smile-pop release. It goes down smooth with a summer ale. It makes you look pretty good when you dance to it. It matches the bright colors of your ridiculous, ’90s-style neon hat and matching shorts. It’s rad. Totally.

The album drops on September …

ODESZA In Return

ALBUM STREAM: ODESZA – ‘In Return’

It’s been at the front of our minds all summer long, and finally it’s here: ODESZA‘s new album, In Return. The Counter Records release drops next week, but the duo have uploaded the record to Soundcloud for you to stream until then.

We’ve heard “Memories That You Call” (feat. Monsoonsiren), but it’s really single “Say My Name” (feat. Zyra) that’s given them their summer success. After being available for one week, the album has already rocketed to #1 on Billboard’s Electronic Chart, #1 on iTunes Electronic Chart, and #20 on iTunes Overall Album Chart. It’s …

free throw

Free Throw Stream ‘Those Days Are Gone’ In Full

Since I first heard them on their tour with Tiny Moving Parts this past May, I’ve been absolutely hooked onto Free Throw‘s sound and have been anticipating the release of their debut LP, Those Days Are Gone. We might be six days away from the album’s September 16 release date, but the album is now streaming in full and can be heard following the jump, thanks to AV Club.

There’s still plenty of time left to pre-order TDAG through Count Your Lucky Stars Records. Be sure to pick it up and learn the lyrics in time …

Stream The American Scene’s New Album, ‘Haze’

Following several singles and an out-of-the-box promotional campaign, The American Scene have begun streaming their new album, Haze, in full over at Alternative Press. Check it out, and let us know what you think in the replies below.

Presently, the outfit’s tour schedule is up in the air, however, given the buzz surrounding this latest effort, I certainly wouldn’t be surprised if that changed in the very near future. Follow UTG on Twitter to stay informed, and if you dig Haze, pickup a copy here, on ITunes.…

This Will Destroy You Another Language

ALBUM STREAM: This Will Destroy You – ‘Another Language’

Post rockers This Will Destroy You are dropping a brand new album on September 16 via Suicide Squeeze titled Another Language. It’s the follow-up to 2011′s Tunnel Blanket and their fifth album so far. We’ve already heard the drop-dead gorgeous “Dustism,” but now it seems we’ll get to stream the record in its entirety until September 15 thanks to Pitchfork Advance.

Considering their music is so based on creating an instrumental landscape, Pitchfork Advance’s interactive experience makes the pre-release stream even better. Their crushing climaxes and soft guitar strokes seem to match the moving images so well.…
