UTG PREMIERE: Swingin’ Utters – “I’m Not Coming Home”

Today, the UTG offices are pleased to share with you a brand new track from Swingin’ Utters, titled “I’m Not Coming Home.” The track comes off of Swingin’ Utters’ upcoming album, Fistful of Hollow, and it’s every bit as fun as you’d expect. The song brings their definitive West Coast punk vibe right off the bat, and is the perfect soundtrack to driving to the beach, or just away from anywhere you don’t really feel like being.

We talked to guitarist Darius Koski about where the inspiration for the song came from, and how “I’m Not Coming Home” fits …

REVIEW: Transit – ‘Joyride’

Artist: Transit
Album: Joyride
Genre: Indie, Pop-Punk, Alternative
Label: Rise Records

Transit has been through a roller coaster ride as a band in the past couple years. After releasing the widely loved Listen & Forgive, their world changed quickly with how they went from stage-diving pop-punk in Keep This To Yourself to the indie rock vibe that they had adapted for the latter record. Then Young New England was released and total outrage came at the band’s expense in that they were scrutinized for the album that was produced. Now, the band has put out a new record in …

Jessica Pratt Announces New Album ‘On Your Own Love Again’

If you love folk, specifically the gentle sound of classical guitar playing, you likely spent much of 2012 and the following years giving Jessica Pratt‘s self-titled debut a whole lot of play time. Now the California-based singer-songwriter is returning in 2015 with a follow-up, at long last. The album, titled On Your Own Love Again, drops January 27 via Drag City. Pre-orders are ongoing.

Her austere playing and dark, whimsicle wanderings will sound similar to “Night Faces” and “Dreams” off her last release, likely because they were recorded at home over the past two years. According to the press …

Pianos Become The Teeth Stream ‘Keep You’

After releasing two gorgeous singles in “Late Lives” and “Repine,” Baltimore outfit Pianos Become The Teeth have finally satisfied our cravings for more new material with a Pitchfork-exclusive stream of their forthcoming LP, Keep You. We’ll save our full sentiments for a later date, but it’s safe to say Pianos’ calmer venture appears to have been worth the wait.

While the record officially hits stores October 28 via Epitaph Records, pre-order options are available here for those who can’t wait to purchase Keep You after giving it a much-awaited listen. As always, feel free to let us know your …

Parkay Quarts Announce New Album ‘Content Nausea,’ Stream New Song

Parquet Courts are back with a new release, and they’re changing things up along with it. The Queens, NY indie punk four piece have undergone a homophonic name shift to Parkay Quarts to coincide with one member completing a degree in mathematics and another starting a family, seeing Andrew Savage and Austin Brown work alongside two friends (Jackie-O Motherf*cker’s Jef Brown on Saxaphone and Eaters’ Bob Jones on fiddle) in their place.

The release, titled Content Nausea, is a 12-track LP that clocks in at 35 minutes and is Parkay Quarts’ second release of 2014. As such, it dials …

Bjork Releasing New Album in 2015

Iceland’s unofficial queen Björk is back in the studio. The influential singer-songwriter told audiences she will have a new record out next year when explaining why she wouldn’t be at the London premiere of Biophilia Live, the captured film from her recent tour behind 2011′s excellent Biophilia. 

The post reads: “We are so sorry, but since Björk is already working on her next album (out in 2015!) she can not come to the ‘Biophilia Live’ premiere at the London Film Festival this week.”…

Song Of The Day: Big K.R.I.T. – “Cadillactica”

Holy shit. We have a hit on our hands.

Big K.R.I.T. has been teasing the release of Cadillactica for the majority of 2014, and early this morning we finally learned when that highly-anticipated record will arrive in stores.

Set for a November 11 release, Cadillactica will almost certainly be one of the most discussed hip-hop releases of the year. K.R.I.T. topped many ‘best of’ lists in 2013, so all eyes are on the young emcee to prove his staying power in this incredibly fickle industry. To get fans hyped, the record’s title track has been made available for streaming, and …

Mod Sun Forms Alliance With Rostrum Records, Releases “1970″ Music Video

After several months spent working on his debut album, Mod Sun has broke his public silence with a series of major news announcements.

The man behind hippie-hop revealed to fans this week that he has formed an alliance with the good people at Rostrum Records. This is different than a record deal, but will include music distribution in hopes of helping expand Mod’s unique brand of music. His debut album, which is currently untitled, is expected to be released in early 2015.
