Ben Howard Directs His Own Beautiful Video For “I Forget Where We Were”

Ben Howard released his second full-length record, I Forget Where We Were, just last month, with plenty of time to shoot to the top of several music lovers’ ‘best of’ lists for 2014 – some of ours here at UTG included.

For the title track’s video, Howard decided to get behind the camera and try his hand at a bit of directing, a choice that seems to be unanimously agreed upon as a wise one. The entire album explores some of the most poignant and affecting lyricism of the year, and the visuals for “I Forget Where We Were” …

Watch Novo Amor’s Haunting Video For “Callow”

One of my personal favorite indie artists, Novo Amor, has revealed a moving music video for his new single, “Callow.” He is a singer-songwriter based out of Cardiff, Wales, and his music is similar to artists like Bon Iver and James Vincent McMorrow. “Callow” is a solid single that is hopefully the start of another great EP from this musician. You can watch the video for yourself below.

If you enjoy the new track, it’s available for purchase on iTunes. You can also purchase a copy of his EP released earlier this year, titled Woodland, NY.…

Pianos Become The Teeth

Pianos Become The Teeth Release Dual Music Videos For “Repine”

Pianos Become The Teeth have graced us with not one, but two music videos for their track, “Repine.” Taken from their outstanding new record Keep You, the set of clips premiered earlier today on NYLON Guys, and can be viewed in full after the jump.

The first video finds lead singer Kyle Durfey slaving over a large wooden structure with uncertain intent, while the other features an emotive live performance. According to the band, this unique approach was meant to display the song from two different perspectives.

“It should be looked at less as ‘two versions’ for the …

Run The Jewels Are The Worst EMTs In New Video For “Blockbuster Night, Pt. 1″

Killer Mike and El-P recently talked to Pitchfork about the unexpected resounding success of Run The Jewels, with Killer Mike even intimating that he was “ready for retirement” before the duo took off. Whether that’s actually true and Mike really would’ve joined the church is a moot point now, although it’s a good thing it happened. Their late-burgeoning careers mean more good music is in the world, and the two would’ve been terrible EMTs.

In the new video for the fiery, foul-mouthed, bass-heavy single “Blockbuster Night Pt. 1,” Mike and El are clearly the coolest EMTs out there. The …

’68 Release Illusion-Filled Music Video For “Track 5″

Today, ’68, the newest project from former The Chariot frontman Josh Scogin, has released a new music video for their song “Track 5: E” — which premiered on Alternative Press. The track comes off their superb debut album, In Humor And Sadness, which features a somewhat post-grunge sound that is unlike Scogin’s previous works.

The music video shows a slew of different camera shots of Scogin and drummer Michael McClellan that are all overlapped on top of each other to create a rather trippy illusion.

Check out the music video below and be sure to watch the …

The Jazz June Release Music Video For “After The Earthquake”

If you’re anything like me, you’ve been loving the new record from The Jazz June for at least a few weeks, which is out now on Topshelf Records. This is band’s first new record after a long hiatus, and it lives up to the expectations. Today, the band has released a dark and dreamy new music video for the title track, “After The Earthquake.”

About the new music, frontman Andrew Low told Nylon Mag:

‘After the Earthquake’ is a about getting on with life after a major life-changing event or a new phase of life, and how it can feel

UTG VIDEO PREMIERE: Outsides – “The Ones”

Outsides is an electronic-pop outfit straight out of the heart of America. After performing at Lollapalooza, and gaining some local recognition in Chicago, the band’s frontman, Tim Ellis, moved to his beloved Kansas City, where he grew up and has been attempting to gain notoriety and recognition nationally with his take on electronic music.

After seeing the live performance, we’ve no doubt that Outsides has the capacity and ability to appeal to the masses that the likes of M83 and Passion Pit have in the past.

UTG has been given the privilege of premiering Outsides’ new lyric video for their …

Turnstile

Turnstile Release New Music Video For “Drop”

Turnstile will be releasing their new album, Nonstop Feeling, on January 13 via Reaper Records and it’s already jumped up our list of most anticipated releases of 2015.

The band released a new music video for their single, “Drop,” on AbsolutePunk today and it’s a fun, dance-y, hardcore track, almost reminiscent of 311, as odd as that may sound. Our only complaint is that the song clocks in at less than two minutes in length.

Check out the video below after the jump and be sure to pre-order the album here.…

New Years Day Share Crazy Video For “Defame Me”

There are plenty of up-and-coming bands who grab headlines from time to time, but never find the talent or showmanship needed to rise to the next level of popularity. New Years Day have been a band on the verge of achieving great things for several years at this point, and with the release of their latest single they may have finally come into their own.

Set largely in a decrepit building, with a number of scenes dressed to reflect nightmarish visions of mental health facilities, the latest video from New Years Day hits hard and heavy in every way imaginable. …
