UTG Album Premiere: Living Room – ‘Moonchaser’

Warning: New, highly-addictive audio ahead…

Every so often an artist comes along that knocks me on my ass from the moment their first single reaches my ears. It’s a rare treat when such an act rises from the overwhelming abyss known as the music underground, and when it does we do everything in our power to bring their efforts to your attention. With that in mind, prepare to fall in love with a group known as Living Room.

On August 19, Living Room will release a new full-length titled Moonchaser through Chicago based Jetsam-Flotsam Records. The record was …

Henrietta

UTG PREMIERE: Henrietta – “Leave It Alone”

You have to love what Henrietta‘s swinging. The Orlando quartet push a great brand of emo-tinged rock with mathy elements, a friendly formula for fans of Braid, Balance & Composure, The American Scene or even Minus The Bear. The sound’s perfectly unrefined, just as it should be – bleeding with raw urgency while offering great technical moments in a perfect package.

Today we’re premiering a new song from the band’s upcoming LP, The Trick Is Not Minding.

Give “Leave It Alone” a listen below, grab the vinyl via Animal Style Records, hear a few more songs on …

Amative

UTG Premiere: Amative – “Selfish Desires” (Official Music Video)

We have been focusing a lot of our efforts in July on exposing readers to new music, and today may be my favorite of all ‘discovery’ posts to debut so far on the site. Amative are a crushingly heavy outfit from Ohio who are not afraid to wear their hearts on their sleeves. Their debut EP, Flatlined, debuted in April. We missed it, and the more we listen to it now the more we want to kick ourselves for not being familiar with their work in time to help with the initial album promotion. Hopefully this post makes up …

UTG Premiere: Avalanche – “Two Years”

It’s hump day, and like many of you we have spent the majority of the work day wondering why it takes so damn long for the weekend to arrive. We cannot give you the tools to build a time machine, nor can we provide you with the financial support needed to quit your dead end job, but we do have a new song from Singapore based metalcore outfit Avalanche that I believe will give you the strength needed to kick this week’s ass.

You may or may not have heard of Avalanche before this moment, but trust me when I …
