Enter Shikari Premiere “Slipshod”

Enter Shikari are known for pushing the boundaries of their signature post-hardcore/electronic blend with every release, but a bonus track from their forthcoming record has went beyond most listeners’ potential imagination. Entitled “Slipshod,” the cut erratically swings from a screamed Rou Reynolds monologue concerning his poor service at a high-end restaurant over swirling instrumentals into a moombahton-esque breakdown, all the while never losing its gargantuan levels of energy.

Absurd in its own right, this does not even begin to describe the accompanying cartoon visuals portraying a conflict worthy of more than its two-minute runtime. Without further ado, though, follow the …

James Blake’s New Album Will Drop in “About Five Months,” May Feature Kanye West

James Blake isn’t one to take a break. While the UK crooner and electronic producer’s last album, Overgrown, came out in 2012, he’s been hard at work since, touring the globe, DJing sets, and dropping new songs “200 Press” and “Building It Still.” Now, the singer-songwriter has announced his next album is on the way.

In an interview with the Miami New Times (via CoS), Blake said that the new album is “seventy percent done” and should drop in “about five months.” For those of you following his mini updates, the Kanye West rumors are …

trophy eyes

REVIEW: Trophy Eyes – ‘Mend, Move On’

Artist: Trophy Eyes
Album: Mend, Move On
Label: Hopeless Records
Genre: Melodic Hardcore, Pop-Punk

Australia’s Trophy Eyes are a band whose star is well and truly on the rise, and if their debut full-length, Mend, Move On, is any indication of things to come, then that star is sure to shine very brightly indeed.

An intense, passionate and at times disturbingly honest record, Mend, Move On incorporates all of the elements that have seen these melodic hardcore/pop-punk wunderkinds make the leap from the relative obscurity of a garage in Newcastle on New South Wales North Coast, to the roster …

Swingin' Utters

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 …

transit

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

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 …
