The Front Bottoms Release Music Video For “12 Feet Deep”

Back in June UTG’s favorite indie rock outfit The Front Bottoms dropped their Rose EP. The group teamed up with Rock Sound to reveal a music video for one of the singles off the EP, titled “12 Feet Deep.” It’s also available to watch beneath the break.

The video contains a mix of live performance shots and some behind the scenes video of the band goofing around. It’s clear that they are genuinely having fun the whole time, and it’s great to see a bit of the musicians’ personality shining through.…

Upon This Dawning 2013

MUSIC VIDEO: Upon This Dawning – “Embrace The Evil”

Earlier this year, with the help of their new label Artery Recordings, Upon This Dawning unleashed their killer sophomore studio album, We Are All Sinners. With a new frontman leading the way, the band proved that they were fully capable of dramatically improving their sound in a short period of time. A prime example of that change is their single “Embrace The Evil,” so it’s only fitting that they dropped a music video for it yesterday. The video features the band performing in an empty warehouse, and includes a handful of actresses to round out the cast. You can …

Thank You Scientist

Thank You Scientist Premiere The Music Video For “My Famed Disappearing Act”

We recently learned that Claudio Sanchez’s new record label, Evil Ink Records, signed on progressive rock outfit Thank You Scientist as their first official artist. If you have heard any of their songs before, especially “My Famed Disappearing Act,” then you are probably aware of their amazing guitar skills (not unlike Sanchez himself). While the band seems to be serious overall, they also have a fun side, which is highlighted in their brand new music video for “My Famed Disappearing Act.”

The band teamed up with Alternative Press to premiere the video, and you can also check it out below …

Telemen Release Colorful Video For “Skeleton Dance”

Teleman, an indie band from the UK, have released a music video for their upbeat track “Skeleton Dance,” taken from their upcoming debut LP, Breakfast, via Moshi Moshi Records.

Breakfast was produced by Bernard Butler of Suede, and if “Skeleton Dance” is any indication of what the record is going to be like, fans of pop-inspired indie rock are sure to be pleased. “Skeleton Dance” features upbeat production, crisp guitars and airy vocals, all grounded by a tight rhythm section.

The accompanying video only elevates the track by adding shapes, colors, spinning berries, and a plethora of other …

The War On Drugs Release Thoughtful Video For Epic “Under The Pressure”

Still riding high on the resounding critical acclaim for Lost In The Dream - which itself followed up the also quite exuberantly-received Slave AmbientThe War On Drugs have released a video for nine-minute album opener “Under The Pressure.”

Bringing the world the latest and greatest in dreamy, wistful indie (and/or dad) rock, the Philly four have truly established themselves, making even the inclusion of “Kurt Vile’s old band” feel passé. The band opened their hazy indie rock album with a nine-minute track that, upon listening, makes that daring idea seem like common sense. It’s rich and vibrant, …

Nicki Minaj Releases “Anaconda” Video, Puts Miley To Shame

Move over Ms. Cyrus, there is another pop queen who wants a little time in the controversy spotlight.

Nicki Minaj has never been one to shy away from her sexuality, and it she made it clear she was holding no punches when she revealed the cover art to her latest single, “Anaconda,” a few weeks back. The song’s debut made that even more evident, with talk of sexual exploits, past lovers, and plenty of ass love. It was everything you expected, yet somehow more.

Today, Nicki released the video for “Anaconda,” and it’s chock full of things that …

Haim Win The Internet With Their Video For “My Song 5″

Is there anything better than daytime talk shows? Pizza is great, sure, and a beautiful sunset always gives you warm fuzzies in all the right ways, but can either of those things hold a candle to watching the oddest of humanity’s odd balls air their dirty laundry on national television from the comfort of your bed/couch? I didn’t think so.

Many years have passed since I have admittedly had enough free time to properly enjoy this type of programming, but thanks to the ladies of Haim and their new video for “My Song 5″ people like me can revisit that …

Taylor Swift Announces New Album ’1989′ And The Lead Single Is Pretty…Different

At long last, Taylor Swift has announced her long-awaited new album and shared the first single. She hosted a very anticipated live stream on Yahoo today where she announced the album, titled 1989 (the year she was born), comes out October 27. Surprisingly, lead single “Shake It Off” features some snappy electronic production, deep baritone saxophone, and Swift laying down some real-talk rapping reminiscent of Avril Lavigne.

The music video for “Shake It Off” shows Swift pretty much responding to all the naysayers from over the years. For those who think she’s a cookie cutter country pop star, watch her …

Action Bronson Cruises In “Easy Rider” Trailer

Making our staff an excited bunch, Action Bronson officially put the hype machine into motion for his forthcoming debut full-length, Mr. Wonderful, earlier this month with the release of its first single, “Easy Rider.” Featuring psychedelic instrumentals best fit for an acid trip circa 1970, the track’s experimental nature is a prime example of Bronson’s genre-hopping nature at its finest, so it only makes sense that a music video would be in store to accompany the cut.

Rather than making us wait cold turkey until August 20, though, Bronsolino has dropped a teaser for the campy visuals in store. …

Chelsea Grin

MUSIC VIDEO: Chelsea Grin – “Playing With Fire”

Coming off the heels of their time spent on the Vans Warped Tour and the release of their third studio album, Ashes To Ashes, Chelsea Grin have shared a rather dark music video for their single, “Playing With Fire.”

Do you like fire? Chelsea Grin sure do. According to them, the best way to complement lyrics like “we will light ourselves a flame” and “let’s burn this bastard to the ground” is to use some intense camera cuts that juggle between performance footage and a fire-breathing poi dancer. You can view the video below the jump to see it for …

Nicki Minaj Releases “Anaconda” Lyric Video

Nicki Minaj has been riding the viral attention given to “Anaconda” for the better part of a month, and today she continues to milk her latest single for all its worth the debut of the track’s official lyric video.

If you know anything about Nicki Minaj it’s likely the fact she does any and everything in her power to stand out from other rappers currently making waves in urban music. For the “Anaconda” lyric video, these efforts include using 8-bit visuals, the return of the talking “Super Bass” head, a mention of Ken dolls, and one of the …
