Buffalo, NY’s Well Kept Things Are About To Be Your New Favorite Band

We’ve probably said this a dozen times before, but there is nothing in this life quite like the rush you feel when stumbling upon an undiscovered talent. Be it musician, painter, filmmaker, or something else entirely, there is something about that rush of emotion and excitement that accompanies a new artistic discovery that cannot be matched by pills or everyday living. It’s the kind of high you seek out every day in every place you look, but more often than not cannot find. Hell, it has probably been two months or more since I’ve heard a song that made me …

EP Stream: I Can See Mountains – ‘Gone Beachy’

If you are scratching your head right now because you thought I Can See Mountains called it quits at the end of 2013 you are not alone. The band, who released two albums prior to their initial leave of absence, have been almost entirely silent since announcing plans to disband at the end of last year. This afternoon however, a follower of UTG pointed us to a brand new EP from the group that seems to signal the return of Buffalo, NY’s finest musical export.

Gone Beachy arrived online today through I Can See Mountains’ official Bandcamp. The three-song …

I Can See Mountains Recording New EP

First The Gay Blades played us for fools, now I Can See Mountains are doing the same.

Just days after playing their supposed final show, New York rockers I Can See Mountains have revealed to PropertyOfZack that they are currently working on a brand new release for 2014.

Speaking to Zack in an email sent earlier today, members of I Can See Mountains summed up their decision to forge ahead in spite of their supposed break up with the following message:

It’s essentially impossible to say goodbye to something that is a big part of you as an individual. You


James Shotwell’s ‘Best Of 2013’ In Music

When 2012 was coming to a close I distinctly remember the majority of alternative music critics commenting that the year had been ‘something special.’ As 2013 begins to wind down I have found the same thing being said from the same people, and I think I too have to agree. For reasons entirely my own, this year offered a diverse selection of fantastic music, with countless releases possessing the power to change lives. I thought long and hard about the releases that made the following lists, but in the interest of brevity decided to only write at length about the …

I Can See Mountains Address Vinyl Issue With Panic Records

I Can See Mountains exclusively spoke with our brothers over at Property Of Zack about the fact that their vinyl pre-orders of Life On A Houseboat are completely missing. Panic Records have failed to communicate why they are gone.

Check out the official statement from ICSM below and read UTG’s review of Life On A Houseboat right here.

First off, we’d really like to thank everyone who has supported Life on a Houseboat and our band so far. We really never thought that people would be even half as interested. With that being said, we had the understanding the


REVIEW: I Can See Mountains – Life on a Houseboat

Band: I Can See Mountains
Album: Life on a Houseboat
Label: Panic Records
Genre: Indie/Pop-Punk

What is there in Buffalo, New York? The Buffalo Sabres? My mom would argue “a whole lot of sadness and grey skies.” She’s probably right because she is indeed right about most things, but if you were to ask me I’d probably mention the budding punk and indie scene. Buffalo produced one of my favorite records of 2012, Pentimento’s self-titled debut, and in 2013 the birth place of my wonderful father gave me another release to get excited about: I Can See Mountains’ Life on


I Can See Mountains Premiere “Sweater Science”

Upstate New york rock outfit I Can See Mountain have released a video for their new song, “Sweater Science.”

Taken from the forthcoming album Life On A Houseboat, which gets a digital release next Tuesday (June 11), the latest from I Can See Mountains further drives home the point this band is here to stay. Their debut offered a handful of promising songs brimming with punk and indie characteristics, and their latest offers more of the same, only this time with a mature feel to the whole affair that lifts the songs from normalcy to a sense of timelessness …

STREAM: I Can See Mountains – “One Big Table”

Buffalo, NY based punk group I Can See Mountains released a new song today, “One Big Table,” which is set to come off of their debut LP, Life on a Houseboat. I Can See Mountains is one of UTG’s favorite bands making waves in the scene right now, and if you give these new songs a listen you’ll understand why. They’re catchy, well-written, and they don’t sound like every other band out there right now. In a scene that is over saturated with the same old thing, some variety is always welcome.

Life on a Houseboat comes out in …
