Sledding With Tigers Release “Not So Body Posi After All” Music Video

San Diego folk punk outfit Sledding With Tigers have released the official music video for their song “Not So Body Posi After All.” The track, which is taken from the group’s debut album, was originally released in the spring.

Do you remember the Jimmy Eat World video for “The Middle“? While the band played on a hot summer night they found themselves in the midst of a house party filled with people in their underwear who ‘just so happen’ to look like models. It’s considered a classic clip today, but to be honest it does not …

Ska-punk legends Rancid have come out of the depths of the underground to announce their upcoming album Honor Is All We Know, their first one in five whole years since 2009′s Let The Dominoes Fall, and their eighth studio album overall.

The album features fourteen tracks, produced by Bad Religion guitarist/Epitaph Records founder Brett Gurewitz, who has been a longtime contributor to the band’s music. The effort was recorded at Red Star Studios and The Boat in Los Angeles, California. It is slated for an October 27 release via both Hellcat and Epitaph Records.

With the album’s announcement, …

Watch HAIM and Napoleon Dynamite’s Jon Heder Crash Chromeo’s “Old 45’s” Video

Electro-pop duo and general mischief makers Chromeo are at it again. After releasing a slew of singles we’ve been fawning over, the two have up and shared a music video for White Women cut “Old 45′s” that features the type of mayhem you would expect from a romance rival song.

Directed by Dugan O’Neal, the video features all three of the HAIM sisters, Napoleon Dynamite’s Jon Heder, and the dancing duo popping moves in a diner to win over the lady of the hour. With the lyric “If you think romance is dead and gone / find an old …

Watch Sam Smith’s Rise to Fame in “Restart” Video

Sam Smith has had one hell of a year. The breakout artist has seen his singles rocket on the charts, been performing at festivals around the world, and found himself seated in the cushions of countless award shows. Throughout that rise in fame, Smith and his pals had been filming the moments happen — and now they’ve been compiled for his new “Restart” video.

The In The Lonely Hour cut sees stacked shots of him on his tour bus, playing around behind the scenes, and going to the beach with friends. It’s a grainy re-cap of his ascent. Nothing makes …

Watch The Video for “Howl” And Fall In Love With Have Mercy All Over Again

Have Mercy are gearing up to release their Hopeless Records debut, and early this morning a new album cut titled “Howl” found its way online. Even better – the song was released alongside its official video.

I don’t know about you, but when I think about Have Mercy my mind immediately goes to the moody and emotional “Let’s Talk About Your Hair.” Their latest, “Howl,” maintains the strong lyricism of that track and pairs it with a driving rock sound that is far more upbeat than fans may be expecting. There are some who have compared the group’s writing style …

Pharrell

Pharrell Goes Anime In Video for “It Girl”

Pharrell has done it again.

The ways he manages to get attention and show off his talent usually stretch the imagination and push the envelope of being weird. His new video for “It Girl” couldn’t be closer to that reality.

Whether he’s animated as a Japanimation character chasing and wooing cartoon girls and buying them clothes and spaceships, or he’s competing through level after level of an anime video game to win her heart, Pharrell shows off his nerdy side in this video; no question about it. And weirdly enough, the song seems to be directed at one “It Girl,” …

Crystal Caines And A$AP Ferg Deliver Heat On “Whiteline”

Crystal Caines has never made an appearance on UTG before this post, but after hearing her latest single I could quickly see the up and coming emcee become a regular on our front page.

Joined by the incredibly talented A$AP Ferg, who is in the midst of his own breakout year, Crystal Caines’ latest single is a hard-hitting track about putting in work and rubbing shoulders with those who deal in cocaine that you won’t soon forget. It’s the kind of unsuspecting production that is made almost entirely by the flow and aggression brought to the track by the …

Mastodon Bring in Twerking Dancers for “The Motherload” Video

If you thought Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” video had an overload of butt shaking, think again. Metal gurus Mastodon have just shared a new video for “The Motherload” from Once More ‘Round The Sun and it’s giving Minaj’s video a run for its money.

The video sees men in cloaks and women in minimal clothing taking over the floor to see who has the best dance moves. We’re all for friendly competition, but seeing the band perform next to close-up shots of the women feels a little too over-sexualized. It’s part of Minaj’s shtick — but is it part of theirs? …

Weezer 2014

Weezer Release “Back To The Shack” Music Video

Following a week that saw two new tracks from their upcoming album surface online, Weezer have returned to our front page with their official video for “Back To The Shack.”

Directed by Warren Fu (HAIM, Daft Punk), the video for “Back To The Shack” finds Weezer performing their latest hit on the surface of the moon. As the clip plays out, Fu incorporates a number of cool effects, including Zero-G guitar work and more slow motion than the latest Zach Snyder film. It’s all fun and works to further the world’s love for Weezer, but the song is what ultimately …

Young Thug [Finally] Releases “Danny Glover” Music Video

Atlanta native Young Thug has finally released the official video for “Danny Glover,” a song that originally found its way online at the beginning of 2014.

You could make the argument that Young Thug rose to fame throughout 2013, but I think it makes more sense to contribute the genre takeover of Thugga Thugga to everything the up and coming emcee has delivered in 2014. There were a few hit singles last year, including “2 Cups Stuffed” and “Stoner,” but when “Danny Glover” hit it became clear that Young Thug was more than a flash in the pan …
