Portland, Oregon’s East Forest (the solo works of Trevor Oswalt, featuring various contributing artists), is set to self-release his seventh full-length effort, entitled Orbits, on Nov. 11.

A revelatory excursion in sound, Orbits serves as the auditory equivalent of a sonic journey through the endless beauties and intricacies Mother Nature has to offer. Fans of The Album Leaf, Ólafur Arnalds, and The American Dollar will succumb to Oswalt’s elegant ambience, subtle electronic beats, delicate vocals and all-encompassing, soothing aura.

UTG PREMIERE: Angels And Airwaves – “The Wolfpack”

This is probably the most exciting Halloween we’ve ever had on UTG.

We have partnered with our SpinMedia brothers and sisters to host the world premiere of Angels And Airwaves’ new single, “The Wolfpack.” The track is the latest to surface from the group’s upcoming album, The Dream Walker, and to be perfectly honest it’s our favorite of the bunch.

Speaking about “The Wolfpack,” frontman Tom Delonge offered:

“The Wolfpack’ is the first single from our upcoming album, ‘The Dream Walker,’ which is part of a bigger trans-media project called ‘Poet Anderson The Dream Walker.’ The song is a

UTG VIDEO PREMIERE: Kevin William – “Children”

When the chill of fall weather cuts through the air I know it’s time to bury my pop punk mixtapes under a pile of releases more fitting of the changing leaves and dropping temperatures. For me, that music often involves acoustic albums and melodic hardcore, or really anything with deep emotions and complex ideas. It just so happens a young artist promoting one of those sounds came across my desk this week, and it took only a few minutes to know we had to find a way to work together soon.

Kevin William is an up and coming indie musician …

Today, we have the great honor of partnering with fast-rising pop rock outfit Act As If to premiere the closing track from their highly anticipated new album. The song, titled “Easier,” knocked us off our collective feet when it first blared throughout our offices, and in the days that followed it could be heard booming from various individual work spaces. To say we’ve fallen head over heels would probably …

UTG PREMIERE: Swingin’ Utters – “I’m Not Coming Home”

Today, the UTG offices are pleased to share with you a brand new track from Swingin’ Utters, titled “I’m Not Coming Home.” The track comes off of Swingin’ Utters’ upcoming album, Fistful of Hollow, and it’s every bit as fun as you’d expect. The song brings their definitive West Coast punk vibe right off the bat, and is the perfect soundtrack to driving to the beach, or just away from anywhere you don’t really feel like being.

We talked to guitarist Darius Koski about where the inspiration for the song came from, and how “I’m Not Coming Home” fits …

UTG VIDEO PREMIERE: The Weekend Classic – “Dread The Weather”

Several weeks ago we brought you an extensive introduction to fast-rising Indiana pop-rock outfit The Weekend Classic, and today it’s our great honor to assist the band in sharing their first music video with the world.

I have spent a lot of time over the last month listening to The Weekend Classic, which is kind of amazing when you consider the fact they have only released two songs to date. The debut single took us by surprise, and it has continued to win over new fans every single day since its initial release. I think that trend will only …
