UTG PREMIERE: Rocket Ship Resort – “Where We’ll Go”

Electro-pop act Rocket Ship Resort is gearing up for the release of a brand new record, Megaheart, which includes the infectious pop track “Where We’ll Go,” streaming exclusively below.

The song is a magnetic modern electronic-pop song, mirroring the likes of The Ready Set and Owl City. Be careful — it’s the type of melody that will stick with you throughout the whole day. Rocket Ship Resort mastermind Skye Meredith had this to say about the track:

I wanted to write a song that sounds like driving through beams of sunlight on a crisp Friday in June. Those little

Arms And Sleepers Launch Kickstarter To Fund “Lots Of New Music”

Writing about and supporting Boston’s Arms And Sleepers are things I will never tire of. For close to a decade now, Max and Mirza’s music has played a huge role in my life, and any prospect of new A&S material will always raise my spirits.

Following last year’s phenomenal Swim Team, Arms and Sleepers have launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the creation of a slew of new output, including “two EPs (a digital release and a limited 12” vinyl release), a Swim Team remix album, a music video for the song “Tiger Tempo,” and a follow-up album …

Blue Stahli Releases “Not Over Till We Say So” featuring Emma Anzai of Sick Puppies

I’ve found your new addiction. Don’t be intimidated. One of the most crazy, flexible and in-your-face songs I’ve heard this year is the new release of Blue Stahli‘s “Not Over Till We Say So,” which features Emma Anzai of Sick Puppies as the guest vocalist and bassist in the song. And it’s unreal. You’ll find yourself singing it after it’s over, for hours.

The song is the most ecstatic mix of thrash/speed metal, dubstep and pop singer-songwriter you can get.

And that’s exactly what Blue Stahli was going for. “‘Not Over Til We Say So’ is pretty much what …

Hear Dave DK’s Excellent New Electronic Single “Halma”

Kompakt electronic musician Dave DK is back. The German DJ and producer has announced a follow-up to 2007’s Moodmusic. The album, titled Val Maira, drops April 27. In anticipation of its release, he’s shared lead single “Halma,” and it’s an excellent journey through house music and dodgy layering.

“Halma” sees Dave DK coming back headstrong. The six-minute track kicks off with street chatter before diving straight into The Field territory. Muted synths loop over sharp drumming, the sound of a trance setting in, making themselves a welcome background noise to the ring of bells and hand claps that follow. Not …

REVIEW: Future Of What – ‘Pro Dreams’

Artist: Future Of What
Album: Pro Dreams
Genre: Indie, Electronic
Label: Feat. Drake Records

On paper I really should have no business with Future Of What‘s debut LP, Pro Dreams, but it’s 2015 and I am trying to delve deeper into the vast world of sonic expression. Finding myself proven for my excursion into the unknown, Pro Dreams is a beautiful record cultivated with care and style.

From the first sounds of “The Rainbowed Air,” I was taken elsewhere. Ethereal sounds lay the clouds that the vocals drag you across. Slow, caring, with a hint of depression, Future …

Enter Shikari Release Music Video For “Anaesthetist”

In promotion of their upcoming album The Mindsweep, coming out on January 19 via Hopeless Records, Enter Shikari have unleashed another music video in anticipation of the release.

After releasing the bizarre yet comical video for “Slipshod,” the band has changed gears with their latest visual accompaniment for “Anaesthetist.” The video consists of live shots of the band and those of a man seeking help as he coughs up blood. Musically, there’s certainly a no holds barred mentality within “Anaesthetist” and it shakes up what the entire album may sound like.

Check out the music video for …

Daft Punk Legos May Be On The Way

It looks like there will be more Daft Punk goodness in 2015 apart from a new documentary. The iconic electronic duo of Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter may get turned into Lego figurines in the near future.

According to Radio.com, Lego’s Ideas page has a Daft Punk pitch with over 5,000 supporters. The idea includes a robot world of mini figurines, guitars, synths, mini pads, and a lighting rig (!), including sets inspired by their “Around The World” video and “ALIVE 2007? stage. Best of all, Lego seems open to the idea. “This project is speeding and …
