Grey Season Stream “Satellites”

I hope you’re ready to fall in love because up and coming Boston folk outfit Grey Season have shared the first song off their forthcoming debut album.

Having only been a band for a little over a year, it’s hard to believe how far Grey Season have come from the time they first appeared on our radar. “Satellites” showcases the latest evolution of their sound, transitioning from simple folk offering to full-blown alternative rock jam halfway through without jeopardizing the simplicity of the song’s message. You can stream the song below:…


NEEDTOBREATHE Keep It Simple With “More Heart, Less Attack”

The eleventh and final song off NEEDTOBREATHE‘s forthcoming album has found its way online, thus completing the band’s multi-month promotional run towards the release of Rivers In The Wasteland.

Titled “More Heart, Less Attack,” the final cut off Rivers feels like it could very quickly gain traction at alternative radio stations across the nation. It’s the kind of simple, acoustic-driven song with a positive message that is both catchy and original, with a structure that continues to surprise until the track’s final moments. You can stream “More Heart, Less Attack” right now on American Songwriter.

“This is …


UTG Track-By-Track: Big Reeno – ‘Watch My Indie Throne’

With only a handful of days to go before his new EP arrives in stores, North Dakota based hip-hop up and comer Big Reeno has partnered with UTG to share a track-by-track rundown of Watch My Indie Throne.

Featuring seven new tracks, including “The Rain” (featuring Dizzy Wright) and “Home” (featuring King Los), the latest release from Big Reeno seems poised to launch the buzzworthy middle of America emcee into the national spotlight. We knew as soon as we heard the first single we had to be involved in the release of this record, and it gives us great …


A$AP Ferg Debuts “Dope Lord”

The Hood Pope has become a Dope Lord.

A$AP Ferg has been keeping fans on their toes with a slew of new freestyles in recent weeks, and last night he delivered once again with a new verse over “Move That Dope.” His ever-so-smooth Brooklyn flow pairs well with the trunk-rattling beat, not to mention the entrancing “Push It” sample whispering in between each bar, making for a two minute listening experience most fans won’t soon forget. You can stream the track below:…


NEEDTOBREATHE Stream “Brother”

Before today, nine of the eleven songs from NEEDTOBREATHE‘s upcoming album Rivers In The Wasteland had found their way online through various premieres and video releases. This morning, track ten came online, and once again we’re blown away by North Carolina’s most exciting rock band.

We have written at length about NEEDTOBREATHE’s desire to return to a more organic, acoustic-driven sound with Rivers, and that is once again what we find on the new song “Brother.” It seems the process of making the new album caused the members of NEEDTOBREATHE to reevaluate their relationship to one another, and …


Sledding With Tigers Stream “The Devil And A California Burrito Are Raging Inside Me”

The countdown to the April 15 release of Sledding With Tigers‘ debut album continues today with the premiere of a new song titled “The Devil And A California Burrito Are Raging Inside Me.”

An obvious play on the Brand New album The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me, the latest track to surface off Sledding With Tigers’ upcoming album is a short and bittersweet tale of realizing just how minuscule one’s problems are in the grand scheme of existence. You may feel down on yourself for a plethora of reasons, but if you step back and look …


NEEDTOBREATHE Stream “Multiplied”

Every time NEEDTOBREATHE have spoken to the press recently they have commented on a desire to return to their roots with the release of Rivers In The Wasteland, which means a return to songs best performed unplugged, with lyrics that could sometimes double for Sunday morning worship. Such is the case with “Multiplied,” and it may be the best track to surface thus far off the band’s upcoming album.

Premiering on TeamCoco earlier today, “Multiplied” is the latest song from Rivers In The Wasteland to debut online ahead of the album’s April 15 release. It begins with the soft …


UTG Premiere: REACTIONS – “Some Way, Somehow”

There are few things we love more than sharing unreleased music with the world, and this afternoon we are beyond excited to premiere a new single from REACTIONS titled “Somehow, Someway.”

You should already be familiar with the work of REACTIONS, but in case you’re not allow me to give you a quick history lesson. Formed in 2011, Arizona’s REACTIONS consist of Michael Amorosia, Steve Splain, Josh Brown, and Nick Ayres. Combining their love for all things Metal, Pop, and Punk REACTIONS linked their pop/rock sound to form a more rock/post hardcore style integrating big choruses and melodies. They have …


Nicki Minaj Keeps It Dark And Filthy On “Chi-Raq”

2014 is the year Nicki Minaj proves everyone wrong.

After surprising fans with the ultra-aggressive “Lookin Ass,” Nicki Minaj is back in our headlines this morning with another ferocious offering that is sure to stun.

Addressing recent controversies and squashing any doubts people have in her legitimacy as an emcee, “Chi-Raq” finds Nicki Minaj riding a dark beat with equally bleak lyricism. There are mentions of the suits in the industry, haters, the violence on the streets of Chicago, and her refusal to ever stand down with a flow that is nothing short of entrancing.

As if that …


Required Listening: Future Featuring Kanye West – “I Won”

A lot of rap released this year has focused on wealth and success, but for his latest single Future has chosen to celebrate the woman that makes him feel like a champion.

“I Won,” which is arguably the most anticipated track off Future’s forthcoming album, found its way online late last night. The track pairs Future with Kanye West for a mid-tempo jam celebrating the women in their lives (in this case, Ciara and Kim Kardashian). These women are trophies, you see, and both these guys are champions because they’ve managed to find one to call their own. You can …

Breathe Carolina Debut “Chasing Hearts” Featuring Tyler Carter

The promotional efforts surrounding Breathe Carolina’s forthcoming album continue this afternoon with the release of a new song titled “Chasing Hearts.”

I don’t think anyone would think of Breathe Carolina if they were asked to choose their favorite group in the current alternative scene based on love songs, but there is something superbly romantic about “Chasing Hearts.” It’s as close to releasing a power ballad the group have come in years, but its hook still packs an energetic punch to lift even the most melancholy souls from the gutter. You can stream the song via lyric video below.…


NEEDTOBREATHE Debut “Feet, Don’t Fail Me Now”

The countdown to Rivers In The Wasteland continues this afternoon with the release of yet another new song from NEEDTOBREATHE.

HitFix is the latest site to join the promotional fun, and earlier today they aided NEEDTOBREATHE in sharing “Feet, Don’t Fail Me Now” with the world. It’s the fourth song to surface off Rivers In The Wasteland, but only the first to reference the southern rock influences found throughout The Outsiders. You can stream the song, in full, below:…
