Modern Baseball Release “Your Graduation” Video

Modern Baseball are riding a wave of publicity and acclaim following the February release of their Billboard chart-topping album You’re Gonna Miss It All. Today, the Pennsylvania emo pop (yea, that’s what I called them) outfit partnered with Noisey to premiere their official video for “Your Graduation.” The clip, just like the song, is crazy good, and it might just be the best thing you hear all week.

It’s hard to describe why people love Modern Baseball. Their lyrics are simple, their voices aren’t exactly top 40 material, and there is almost nothing commercial about their image. Alternative fans …

Modern Baseball Premiere New Song

Modern Baseball will release their new full-length, You’re Gonna Miss It All, through Run For Cover Records on February 11, and you can stream a new song from the album over at Fuse. Even more than the last two songs the band has released, “Charlie Black” highlights the growth and evolution Modern Baseball have experienced in the two years since their scrappy debut, Sports. The production is slicker, the instrumentation more intricate, and the lyrics more refined. If you’re not singing along to the chorus of “woah-oh-oh-oh” by the end of the song, you probably weren’t listening.…

Songs For The Season: Winter Playlist

The winter season, at times, seems to consist of a love hate relationship. Being from Boston, I know many fellow Bostonians who rue away the long, tired, and cold, New England season, dreaming of palm trees and open shores. But, there is something ultimately rewarding about making it through the courses of the cold. A hidden sense of pride, fulfillment, and new adventure that has kept me close to home during the season.

But, being a small part of the UTG writing team, my New England heritage is not shared with a vast group of writers from all over the …
