Vanities Band 2014 Dead Beats EP

UTG Premiere: Vanities – ‘Dead Beats’ EP

Just a year after bursting onto the hardcore scene with their incredible debut, New England’s Vanities are back with a killer new record that might be your favorite heavy release of the fall.

The world of heavy music has become incredibly underwhelming in recent years, at least on the side of things that caters to younger audiences. The vast majority of bands making it in the quote/unquote ‘alternative’ scene have all become clones of one another, ripping off whatever new idea is popular this year in order to cash in long enough to book another nationwide tour. Still, in the …

FREE MP3: Bobby Shmurda – “Hot N*gga” (Boombox Cartel Remix)

The hottest song of the summer has just received a killer remix from one of the hottest production duos in music today.

The word is still out on whether or not Bobby Shmurda has the talent needed to establish a lasting presence in hip-hop, but for the time being “Hot Nigga” is keeping him on the tip of every industry exec’s tongue. He’s the up and comer to beat right now, even though he only has one song that anyone cares about. You may even think that song has started to grow stale, but after hearing the Boombox

French Montana Streams “Suicide”

French Montana has been relatively quiet on the music front recently, but today that changed as the New York emcee delivered a solo cut that may surprise some haters.

I will forever be the first person to admit that French Montana does not have the best track record with solo material. His mixtape game was strong back in the day, but since Meek went mainstream and became the type of rapper mentioned as much for his relationships as music, something began to change. He became a gimmick, with his best work being whatever was delivered in guest appearances.

All that …

Required Listening: Florida Georgia Line – “Sun Daze”

Having spent the past few weeks dominating country charts with the power ballad “Dirt,” Florida Georgia Line are back in music headlines this morning with the release of a new song titled “Sun Daze.”

There are a few things you can expect to find in almost every song by Florida Georgia Line. References to having a good time is the most common, but partying, working hard, driving around, and knowing how to be yourself no matter what are not far behind. “Sun Daze” brings all these elements together, as well as the group’s love for …

Free MP3: Imagine Dragons – “It’s Time” (Matoma Remix)

Today was the first day since early April that I stepped outside my apartment and immediately turned back because I realized the sunshine was not enough to keep my bones warm. There was a cold in the air that could only mean one thing: Fall is almost here. That may be a scary thought for you, and if so I cannot blame you in the slightest, but thanks to the brilliant Matoma we can all escape the changing of the leaves – if only for a few minutes – with his new tropical remix of Imagine Dragons‘ infectious single …

Childish Gambino Streams “Sober” From ‘STN MTN/KAUAI’

Childish Gambino informed us at the beginning of September that he would be releasing a new mixtape in the near future. We still do not know when that record will arrive, but this afternoon Gambino shared a track off the album that has radio hit written all over it.

We can go back and forth over whether or not Because The Internet is stronger than Childish Gambino’s debut, but I think everyone can agree that Internet offered the rapper, whose real name is Donald Glover, an opportunity to expand his sonic horizons in ways other urban artists would never …

The Weekend Classic Are About To Become Your New Favorite Band

I’ve always found that the best listening experience anyone can hope to stumble across is an instance where material that you never expected to impress you ends up knocking you on your ass. The track plays, your jaw slowly comes unhinged, and by the time it ends you’re too busy eating your own words to try and defend lack of enthusiasm up front. It’s rare, which is all the more reason to tell everyone you know whenever artists are able to have that kind of affect on your life.

Hailing from Indiana with a sound that blends together the best …

Big Sean Signs With Roc Nation, Shares Four New Songs

Big Sean has been making headlines in recent months because of his rumored relationship with Ariana Grande more than his music, but that all changed this week when Sean announced he had signed with Roc Nation. He now shares representation with the same people who handle the likes of Meek Mill, Shakira, and DJ Mustard. Sean, always the type to celebrate, then took to Twitter with a tease promising new music on Friday (September 12).

Last night, Sean made good on his promise to fans by sharing not one, but four brand new tracks. The songs feature …

One Direction Announce New Album, Stream Lead Single “Fireproof”

One Direction have spent the majority of the year touring the globe in support of their fall 2013 album, Midnight Memories, but somewhere along the way the group found time to record again because they have another album due out before the end of 2014.

Revealed to fans on Monday, Four will be the fourth studio album from One Direction in four years. The record will not hit stores until an unspecified date in November, but the group decided to give fans an early taste of the record by sharing a new song titled “Fireproof” that you can now …

Black Veil Brides Embrace Mainstream Hard Rock With “Faithless”

For the second time in less than two weeks, California based rock outfit Black Veil Brides have shared a new song from their highly anticipated new studio album.

If “Heart Of Fire” was the song meant to welcome listeners back to the world of Black Veil Brides, “Faithless” is the song that displays the evolution the band has gone since the January 2013 release of their last album. All screams and quote/unquote ‘scene’ elements have been stripped away, allowing the band to focus on crafting driving rock music with arena ready hooks that could easily find their way …

Damien Rice My Favourite Faded Fantasy

Damien Rice Streams “My Favourite Faded Fantasy”

Just a day after announcing plans to release his first studio album in eight years, Damien Rice is streaming a new single titled “My Favourite Faded Fantasy.”

Clocking in at just over six minutes in length, “My Favourite Faded Fantasy” ushers fans back into the beautiful and often heartbreaking world of Damien Rice with poise and grace. It’s a gorgeously constructed ode to everything that could develop between two star-crossed lovers, with an ever-so-slight melancholy undertone that brings to mind Rice’s earlier works. The track premiered on BBC Radio late last night, but you can stream the song, in full, …
