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

Blue Sky Black Death Release ‘Euphoric Tape II’

If you’re unfamiliar with the production duo Blue Sky Black Death you have some serious catching up to do. With one member residing in Oakland and the other in Seattle, the two come together to create some of the most ethereal cuts available in the hip-hop-related realm. Their catalog, for the most part, is comprised of instrumental beats and sonically soothing compositions but they’ll occasionally get some friends to contribute their vocal abilities, that is if they don’t first decide to slow a Bieber sample 800% for some eerie effects.

After releasing the epic Glaciers back in October the duo …

PMtoday Members Reunite as Move, Stream New Song

The UTG staff has a lot of PMtoday fans and we’ve been shaking and aching for the ex-Rise Records family outfit to bring us the goods post-In Medias Res but as they’ve been on an indefinite hiatus for some time, our hopes have since been indefinitely unfulfilled.

Back in April, word got out that brothers Connor and Ryan (PMtoday founding members) would be working on a new project called move which may or may not now be known as move orchestra. The project seems to also feature Cuinn, another Brogan brother that was a member of PMtoday, and …

Mabson Enterprises have compiled 37 artists via social media that are twerking hard or hardly twerking with a vast array of unique covers and remixes of Miley Cyrus’ smash summer jam, “We Can’t Stop.”

Earlier this year, Las Vegas experimental post-hardcore act Apex of Apathy released one of the most promising full-length debuts of 2013 with The Flying Machine. Including sounds from not only post-hardcore, but genres such as pop-punk, progressive rock, and alternative rock as well, the album was a seriously satisfying listen that burst at the seams with potential.

Only a few months removed from the introduction of The Flying Machine, Apex are already setting their sights towards the future with plans to release a brand new EP, entitled Saltwater, before the year comes to a close. We had …
