Röyksopp & Robyn Share “Do It Again” Video

Swedish pop queen Robyn and Norwegian electronic duo Röyksopp teamed up earlier this year to release a collaborative mini-album titled Do It Again (out now on Dog Triumph, via Wall Of Sound/Cooking Vinyl). Back in April, they put out a lyric video for the album’s title track, but now the single has gotten a proper music video — and it was worth the wait.

Directed by Martin de Thurah, the “Do It Again” black and white video is a beautifully shot clip that takes place in Mexico and tells a huge story about oppression and rebuttal with the youth and …

Iggy Azalea Performs “Fancy” At ESPYs (Video)

Last night, Iggy Azalea took her unique stage presence to the set of the ESPYs for a one of a kind performance of “Fancy.” You may have missed the broadcast, but thanks to the power of YouTube her appearance is not lost forever.

It’s rare that an artist finds themselves battling against their own work at top 40 radio, but that is exactly the predicament Iggy finds herself in today. “Fancy” is still dominating radio play coast to coast, but Ariana Grande’s “Problem” has been picking up a lot of steam. Together, the songs create a miniature soundtrack to summer …

UTG INTERVIEW: Pitchfork Music Festival Bands on Their Favorite Chicago Hangouts

We’re a little more than excited for Pitchfork Music Festival to arrive this year considering it has an awesome record fair (Chirp!), top notch food vendors (Rice Table! Puffs of Doom!), and a beautifully stacked lineup (Slowdive! Beck! Neutral Milk Hotel!). The festival will take place over at Union Park on July 18-20 for three days of great music before dispersing to Chicago’s playground of venues for a series of after-shows. And so the countdown to musical bliss begins.

To help festivalgoers make the most out of their experience, we asked some of the bands about their favorite spots, where …

Action Bronson Raps Inside A Port-A-Potty In The Middle Of His Set [Video]

Oh, Action Bronson. Every few weeks a new video goes viral from your live show and reaffirms the fact you are one of the wildest emcees in hip-hop today. Never stop being you. Please.

I don’t know what you did last weekend, but unless you were in attendance at Ottawa Bluesfest you missed the opportunity to witness Action Bronson making a trip to a port-a-potty in the middle of his performance. Don’t worry, one of the many great people of the internet took it upon themselves to capture the moment and upload it to YouTube for the world to …

G-Eazy These Things Happen

G-Eazy Performs “Far Alone” For MTV

Now that These Things Happen has caught the attention of the mainstream media, Bay Area rapper G-Eazy has found himself thrust into the spotlight more than ever before. As such, he’s become the darling of every influential blog that was too cool to give him the time of day before, including MTV.

Okay, to be fair this is not the first time G-Eazy has made his way onto MTV. His last few videos have been featured on the aging entertainment company’s site in the past, but this morning his first real feature debuted when the MTV blog ran an ‘Artist …

Pup interview 2014

Watch PUP Cover the Buzzcocks

Punk manages to revitalize itself every few years just enough for bands to claim it isn’t dead but for modern dads to say it’s not the same. Today we find ourselves right in the meat of that argument as Side One Dummy punk group PUP head over to the AV Club to cover one of the 1970s’ most important punk bands, the Buzzcocks.

Watch as the Canadian quartet do a solid job of channeling that punk spirit as their guitars snarl during the cover. They don’t get too fancy, which ultimately is the right move. Instead, they cover the …

Atreyu Confirm Return, Reveal First Show Back

The wait is over, ladies and gentlemen. After months of teasers and rumors with absolutely no interviews or public appearances, the members of Atreyu have announced that they are officially returning to the world of music.

Today, a press release was distributed confirming the news we all believed to be true for the better part of 2014 so far: Atreyu are back. The band has been planning this announcement for several months and could not be more thrilled to finally reveal their plans to fans. “The time has come,” says drummer Brandon Saller. “We have been spending the last few …

Jack White Covers Kanye West In Dublin [Video]

Jack White is never one to play things safe. Every single project he has been attached to in the world of music, from The White Stripes to Third Man Records, has been built upon a foundation of innovation that seems to never cease. There is no sound too odd or story too long, just music.

Recently, Jack White traveled to Ireland to play a large scale music festival. The show opened with White and his band performing the Yeezus cut “Black Skinhead” in full, then transitioned into material from White’s critically acclaimed career. You can view the first fifteen minutes …

UTG PHOTOS: Goo Goo Dolls & Daughtry (6/14/14)

Under The Gun sent guest photographer, Audrey Lew, to the Nikon at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, NY to photograph Goo Goo Dolls & Daughty on June 14, 2014.

Last week, the Goo Goo Dolls kicked off their summer tour with the support of Daughtry and the Plain White T’s.

The weather at Jones Beach was nice, but as expected got a bit nippy from the ocean breeze. Overall, I’d expected it to be a good show when it came to sound and performance, seeing as every band on the ballot has been around the block a few times. I …

Angel Olsen

Watch Angel Olsen’s TV Debut on ‘Letterman’

It’s been four months since Angel Olsen‘s fantastic record Burn Your Fire For No Witness came out and not a week goes by that I don’t find myself listening to it in full. The only thing better than giving it a spin is hearing that material live. Thankfully the whole TV-watching world got a chance to experience that sound this week when Olsen stopped by the Late Show with David Letterman to perform “Hi-Five.”

The video is a good opportunity to see her singing style. It never ceases to amaze me how little she opens her mouth for some …

Real Estate

Watch Real Estate Debut New Song “White Light” and Cover Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So”

It’s been quite a year for New Jersey indie rockers Real Estate. Not only did they put out an excellent new album, Atlas, but they announced a new live EP, shared US tour dates, and taught us how to play “Crime” on guitar. Naturally the next step was to stop by La Blogothèque for a dependably breathtaking live session. The 30-minute video has frontman Martin Courtney, guitarist Matt Modanile, and bassist Alex Bleeker playing in a cozy indoor setting to a small group of onlookers.

The video catches Real Estate playing music off of Atlas, including …
