UTG EDITORIAL CROP

EDITORIAL: Songs To Calm An Anxious Mind

It was a complete depersonalization and increasing dehumanization. Nothing was real, for everything that was real was hastily slipping away. I began to think of my family, and how they would react once I was gone. I was soon replaying the last conversations we had in my mind, as if I could somehow justify our last dialogues as fitting for a goodbye.

I sat in my car in a parking lot as it began to happen. The same car that drove me home from hockey practice, drove me to my first concert, picked up my first date, and acted as …

MUST LISTEN: Sunny Day Real Estate – “Lipton Witch”

Record Store Day was yesterday, and there were plenty of releases for fans of all genres to look forward to. One of those releases was a split between Circa Survive and Sunny Day Real Estate. This split is particularly exciting because SDRE haven’t released new music together in fourteen years. While I do love Circa Survive, SDRE’s “Lipton Witch” is definitely the biggest reason to grab the split. You can give it a listen by taking a look below the jump.

Circa Survive, Thursday To Contribute To Nirvana Tribute Album

In honor of the 15th anniversary of Nirvana’s In Utero and Robot Empire Records’ 100th release, the label will release a tribute album titled  In Utero: In Tribute: In Entirety.

The release will include tracks recorded by Thursday, Jay Reatard, Whirr, Circa Survive and more.

“It has been a privilege to introduce so many unique bands to likeminded freaks over the past 15 years. Looking back at what’s transpired almost seems unreal, and even with a shameful carbon footprint of many thousand plastic circles – I can safely say that it has been an honor to work with the artists …
