One Fell Swoop

UTG PREMIERE: One Fell Swoop – “April Fool’s Gold”

New York-based One Fell Swoop is a band fueled on an aggressive and poetic snarl of driven hardcore music. Today, Under The Gun Review is premiering the band’s new song, “April Fool’s Gold.” The song is a mixture of musicianship, melody and hostility. It’s the type of song with the moxie of Every Time I Die and the respectable composition complication of The Fall of Troy. There’s just a little something for everybody on the track.

The band’s new EP, Last Minute Living, is slated for a November 4 release and can be picked up via Bandcamp. One …

There’s nothing like discovering a band you really dig on a Friday afternoon, is there? I’ve listened to Tigers On Trains‘ new album Antarctica In Color a few times today, and after initial spins, I think that everyone should take an hour or so to give this one some listens.

Featuring members of The Republic Of Wolves, Tigers On Trains is a talented collective of musicians, and Antarctica In Color is a fantastic release. Full of calming, alt-indie tunes, the record is just what you need to wind down after a long work day.

REVIEW: Slaughter Beach (Jake Ewald of Modern Baseball) – ‘Dawg’ EP

Artist: Slaughter Beach
Title: Dawg EP
Genre: Emo, Alt-Punk

The question of why artists don’t just put out their far from flawless mini collection of songs they hastily write while on the subway or at a McDonalds always crossed my mind. Why do we always have to expect these things to come in shiny packages and red bows? Why can’t we receive the same presents in a barely-96kbps-“is-this-the-demo?” format? Luckily for us curious folks, Jake Ewald of Modern Baseball appears to share similar sentiments. He recently, under the name of Slaughter Beach, unexpectedly put out a three-track EP, entitled Dawg,

the otter years

REVIEW: The Otter Years – ‘Singles Collection’

Artist: The Otter Years
Album: Singles Collection
Genre: IDM
Label: Little League Records

When listening to The Otter Years‘ work for the first time, one would not be foolish to suspect the musician behind it has focused their career efforts on experimenting with all facets of electronic music. Alas, they would be wrong, as The Otter Years is none other than the brainchild of TTNG’s percussionist Chris Collis, a man known for existing as the backbone of mind-bending math rock rather than utterly relaxing dance music. Allowing listeners to fully wrap their mind around the concept of Collis’ 180 …

Tigers Jaw Charmer

Tigers Jaw Release ‘Charmer’ Early Following Album Leak

Album leaks seem to become more prominent with each year that passes and hardworking bands suffer more and more from irresponsible and disrespectful persons putting their material out before it’s to be officially released. Scranton, PA’s Tigers Jaw were set to release their newest effort, Charmer, on June 3 but the album was leaked online just recently. According to the band’s label, Run For Cover Records, this leak “is NOT the final version of the album, and is missing songs.”

Those of us that pre-ordered Charmer received our digital downloads yesterday and I haven’t stopped listening to it since. …

UTG ALBUM PREMIERE: Alright. – ‘Sleep Study’

Being a resident of the Queen City, it’s always exciting to be exposed to talent within its ever-growing music scene, so hearing the lo-fi/pop-punk combination of Charlotte, North Carolina, outfit Alright for the first time was a true pleasure to say the least. Thus, we’re even more excited to be able to premiere the trio’s brand new Self Aware Records-backed debut EP, Sleep Study.

Featuring five tracks of fuzzy pop-punk goodness, the group have chosen to release Sleep Study at a perfect time as it has summertime soundtrack written all over its 13-minute runtime. So, roll down your …

The seventeen-track collection is available now on the Michigan-based group’s Bandcamp page for only five dollars.

Highlights from B-Sides and Rarities include an unreleased track from the Good For Me sessions called “Break,” an acoustic demo of “Possibilities” from the early stages of writing The
