Flying Lotus You're Dead!

Flying Lotus Shares New Song “Coronus, The Terminator”

Producer, electronic musician, and general genius Flying Lotus drops his highly-anticipated new album, You’re Dead!, via Warp Records on October 7. It’s a massive 19-track release that is following up 2012′s brilliant Until The Quiet Comes with a more jazz-oriented setup and guest star studded flair. In anticipation of the release, he’s shared single “Coronus, The Terminator.”

Unlike the rhythmic flurry of “Moment of Hesitation” and the edgy point of Kendrick Lamar collab “Never Catch Me,” this song strolls down the psychedelic route with a leisurely yawn. Things begin to get dark at one point, …

Panda Bear

Panda Bear Streams New Mixtape

We’ve known that Panda Bear (aka Noah Lennox of Animal Collective) has been working on a new album this year with hip-hop influences, but we’re still left in the air in terms of its title and release date. Today what we do get, however, is a mixtape he made which likely points in the direction of what his new record will sound like.

The mixtape showed up on his new website, PBVSGR.com. While previous reports suspected his upcoming LP’s title would be Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper, the mixtape’s hyperlink indicates it may be Panda Bear VS

20 Eyes

UTG VIDEO PREMIERE: 20 Eyes – “Friends Like You”

Friends and viewers of Under The Gun, we are happy to present you with the official premiere of an unusual song and video to match. 20 Eyes, the three-piece alternative group from San Pedro, CA, are equally as excited to unveil “Friends Like You.”

The video features genre-fusing musical stylings cleverly paired with the funkiest dance moves I’ve ever seen from an elderly man. Although artists have successfully deployed the use of a wacky random guy in the past, this one is just too good to pass over. The band has also found a quirky way to deliver a …

flying Lotus Never Catch Me

Listen to Flying Lotus and Kendrick Lamar on Single “Never Catch Me”

Last month, Flying Lotus shared his first cut from his upcoming album, You’re Dead!out October 7 via Warp Records. The song, titled “Moment of Hesitation,” saw Herbie Hancock, Thundercat, and more bringing jazz elements to the forefront while still showcasing FlyLo’s natural knack at magical electronic fluttering. Now he’s shared a new single, “Never Catch Me,” which features Kendrick Lamar.

“Never Catch Me” is considerably faster-moving than his last single. It explodes with a flurry of electronic stuttering, claps, and Lamar’s huge verse he drops partway through, making for a mindblowing experience if you’re wearing proper …

Tigers On Trains Will Release New Album This Fall

Tigers On Trains, the indie duo consisting of The Republic of Wolves members Mason Maggio and Christian Van Deurs, will release a new full-length LP this fall.

Coming from an announcement via a YouTube teaser, the band notes that they will be self releasing their third LP in the fall, with more news (and hopefully a full track) soon to come.

The teaser does its job well, for we are only gifted with 25 seconds of banjo, guitar, various other instruments and an increased sense of anticipation.

Follow us after the jump to check out the video announcement, and be …

Buke and Gase

Buke and Gase Share Single, Announce Tour

Buke and Gase are more than an experimental duo; they’re inventors. Brooklyn musicians Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez made their instruments–the “toebourine” and “buke,” for example–by hand. Not only that, but their music stretches boundaries farther than we’re used to, all while maintaining a catchy-enough riff to keep us following along on their absurd path. It’s time to get our shoes back on for a hike, because the two have announced both a new single called “Seam Esteem” and a tour around the East Coast, Canada, and Midwest.

According to the press release, they wanted to raise their glass ceiling …

Dads Stream “Fake Knees”

It’s hard to explain how Dads rose from underground sensations to being a band on the verge of taking the nation by storm, but at some point in the last year or so something changed. Their music has stayed the same, as has their thrilling live show, but the way people react to their creativity has been amplified in a big way. As longtime fans, this brings us a great deal of joy.

Today, the members of Dads partnered with our friends at AltPress to share a new song titled “Fake Knees.” The song is the latest to surface from …

UTG PHOTOS: Arcade Fire Dazzle The Gorge Amphitheater (8/814)

In what had to be seen to be believed, Arcade Fire performed at the legendary Gorge Amphitheater in George, WA on August 8. The Gorge, which sits near the Columbia River, is one of the premier concert venues in the Pacific Northwest, and what better way to breathe even more life into its structure than to host one of the biggest indie rock bands in the world?

However, Arcade Fire had one requirement for their fans who were in attendance: be dressed to the nines in semi-formal attire, and dance their asses off! Seeing this at The Gorge was interesting …

Stream FKA Twigs’ Debut Album ‘LP1′

Britain’s experimental R&B singer FKA Twigs drops her debut album, LP1, on August 12 via Young Turks. In anticipation, it’s streaming in full over at iTunes Radio.

The 10-track release follows up her last two EPs and features production from Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes, Paul Epworth, and Arca. We’ve already heard “Two Weeks” and “Video Girl,” but hearing them in context of the rest of the album does wonders. Pre-orders for the album are currently ongoing.

According to an interview with Pitchfork, FKA Twigs says she named the album because she didn’t know what …

The ball keeps rolling as more and more bands are getting the attention they deserve. One of Brooklyn’s finest indie-folk duos, Mitchy Collins and Danielle Bouchard, who go by the name of Oh Honey, have recently announced their signing to Fueled By Ramen.

Having toured with bands like American Authors, The Mowgli’s, and The Fray, Oh Honey has continuously been adding onto solid indie/alternative concert bills, exposing them to more and more people who are guaranteed to appreciate their sound. Oh Honey released their first EP, With Love, in May and it generated a massive amount of good feedback. The …

REVIEW: Spoon – ‘They Want My Soul’

Artist: Spoon
Album: They Want My Soul
Genre: Indie Rock

These days, sticking around the indie-rock game for more than a few years is a feat. We’ve watched some heavy hitters jump into play for a few minutes, then get taken out and rotated in with another all-star that will get flashy for a period. Rinse and repeat.

Spoon, who are at this point grandpas of indie rock, have come back from a four-year break and hit the first three pointer they shot. Followed by another. And another. They Want My Soul is a proclamation album. Maybe a “fuck-off” type.…
