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 …

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 …

Imogen-Heap-Sparks

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 …

Living Room 2012

UTG Album Premiere: Living Room – ‘Moonchaser’

Warning: New, highly-addictive audio ahead…

Every so often an artist comes along that knocks me on my ass from the moment their first single reaches my ears. It’s a rare treat when such an act rises from the overwhelming abyss known as the music underground, and when it does we do everything in our power to bring their efforts to your attention. With that in mind, prepare to fall in love with a group known as Living Room.

On August 19, Living Room will release a new full-length titled Moonchaser through Chicago based Jetsam-Flotsam Records. The record was …
