UTG PHOTOS: Bassnectar At Madison Square Garden (10/4/14)

Under The Gun sent photographer Derek Scancarelli to Madison Square Garden in New York City to photograph Bassnectar on October 4, 2014.

Ahhhh, The Garden. The internationally renowned arena over New York’s Pennsylvania Station. It’s home to the New York Rangers, New York Knicks, and is the only venue to ever have a residency by Billy Joel. You can see Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey’s Circus or a New York Liberty Game. As of last weekend, Bassnectar will be added to the list of iconic performances to grace the stage at MSG, making for one hell of a check-off …

HURRY: Flying Lotus’ New Album ‘You’re Dead!’ Streaming for 24 Hours With Special Film

Flying Lotus‘ new album, You’re Dead!, is out October 7 via Warp, and we’ve been getting psyched about it for weeks. To celebrate the upcoming release, the electronic musician and producer is teaming up with the Boiler Room to stream the album before its release. As part of a special promotion, the stream will be accompanied by a special film for the next 24 hours — and 24 hours only.

Flying Lotus has already shared excellent singles “Moment of Hesitation,” “Coronus, the Terminator,” and “Never Catch Me” (which just got a music

Watch Liars’ Freaky Video for “I’m No Gold”

At the beginning of this year, Los Angeles electro-punk group Liars put out their dark, eerie new album MESS. They also shared a video for “Pro Anti Anti” which showed clay versions of their faces being melted. It was a perfect visual companion to the song to show their edgy sound and its twisted undertones.

Now they’re getting a little darker in their new “I’m No Gold” video.

The band’s fascination with faces continues within the visuals for “I’m No Gold.” Angus Andrew’s wild faces and nonstop hair flipping gets the limelight in Laurie Lynch’s video for a …

Never Catch Me Kendrick Flying Lotus

Watch Flying Lotus and Kendrick Lamar’s “Never Catch Me” Video

On October 7, Flying Lotus drops his newest album, You’re Dead!, via Warp Records. It’s a 19-track effort that features collaborations with Herbie Hancock, ex-Dirty Projectors’ Angel Deradoorian, Snoop Dogg, Thundercat, and FlyLo’s hip-hop alter-ego, Captain Murphy. A few others, like Pharrell, turned down guest spots for fear of the album’s heavy content. With the first music video in our hands, it makes sense why.

In his new video for “Never Catch Me,” Flying Lotus sees his single play alongside a clip of two children at their own funeral. The Kendrick Lamar collaboration gets grim, despite being …

Watch HAIM and Napoleon Dynamite’s Jon Heder Crash Chromeo’s “Old 45’s” Video

Electro-pop duo and general mischief makers Chromeo are at it again. After releasing a slew of singles we’ve been fawning over, the two have up and shared a music video for White Women cut “Old 45′s” that features the type of mayhem you would expect from a romance rival song.

Directed by Dugan O’Neal, the video features all three of the HAIM sisters, Napoleon Dynamite’s Jon Heder, and the dancing duo popping moves in a diner to win over the lady of the hour. With the lyric “If you think romance is dead and gone / find an old …

Caribou Our Love

Canadian musician and producer Caribou, aka Dan Snaith, will release Our Love on October 7 via City Slang. It’s his sixth album to date and first full-length since 2010′s excellent Swim. So far we’ve heard the immersive “Can’t Do Without You” and title track, but now it’s time to hear the rest. Our Love is streaming in full over at iTunes Radio.

The 10-track effort is a soulful, organic, heartfelt release that features collaborations with Owen Pallett and Jessy Lanza. Snaith told Rolling Stone that he wanted to make something for everyone, not just …

BEHIND THE SCENES: Melody Joy’s “Beauty Is Pain” Video Shoot

Melody Joy is one of the most ridiculously unique performers I’ve stumbled upon in a while. Admittedly, at first view of her music video for “Ronald Reagan,” I was confused and drawn in by the spectacle of it all. It combines elements of humor, strangeness, various foods and sexuality. It’s the first rap song that I’ve seen incorporate a Mikhail Gorbachev reference and a popcorn-filled bathtub. It seemed strange that it only had a few hundred views on it, but it turns out YouTube took it down after 15,000 views because of its sexual nature, but Joy later …

ODESZA In Return

ALBUM STREAM: ODESZA – ‘In Return’

It’s been at the front of our minds all summer long, and finally it’s here: ODESZA‘s new album, In Return. The Counter Records release drops next week, but the duo have uploaded the record to Soundcloud for you to stream until then.

We’ve heard “Memories That You Call” (feat. Monsoonsiren), but it’s really single “Say My Name” (feat. Zyra) that’s given them their summer success. After being available for one week, the album has already rocketed to #1 on Billboard’s Electronic Chart, #1 on iTunes Electronic Chart, and #20 on iTunes Overall Album Chart. It’s …

See the Complete List of Gear Used on Aphex Twin’s ‘Syro,’ Including “Mum & Dad Vocals”

Aphex Twin is putting out his first album in 13 years; of course people are going to obsess over it. Syro‘s packaging is a beautiful thing full of simple structure and transparency. That means see-thru Plexiglas and dishing deets like the cost of making the album. Because of the packaging’s sworn oath to openness, Richard D. James has shared a list of every piece of gear used on the album. “[The lists tell] the reader everything and nothing about the creation of what I hear was an intensely personal album,” said Ian Anderson, founder of Designers Republic who are …
