G-Unit Want You to Watch When They “Come Up”

50-Cent and G-Unit have clearly gone nowhere. The crew have had a good summer, playing OVO Fest, releasing a few tracks here and there, and announcing a new album in November, 2014 is looking like the year for G-Unit.

Well, now they’ve released a video for their new track, “Come Up,” and it’s obvious they’re still living the party lifestyle. The video is packed with booze, babes and cars, and they don’t appear to be slowing down. Check out the video below, and let us know what you think.…

U2 Album in 2014 Still Possible

After back-and-forth rumors about U2 releasing its follow-up to the hugely disappointing 2009 effort No Line on the Horizon, it seems yet again that 2014 is the year.

According to Rolling Stone, a spokesperson for the band has been quoted saying it’s now. “We’ve always said an album is expected this year.”

The band has been working on this album for a good five years now and to quote The Edge, “We really want the songs to be right. That’s the only reason why we’re not on tour – because we’re so good at starting, not so good …

ALBUM STREAM: Cymbals Eat Guitars – ‘Lose’

We’ve already been blessed with three tracks from the new Cymbals Eat Guitars album Lose, including the fantastic track” Warning.

Now, two weeks before the release, NPR is hosting a First Listen of the whole album for your listening pleasure. This comes highly recommended from yours truly here at UTG. The band has openly admitted to the album being about the death of a friend, and more vaguely, the idea of loss, and the recovery period after. Prepare yourself for an emotional record, filled with the classic raw guitars and nasty crashes of drums.

Lights

LIGHTS Shares Video for “Portal”

A few weeks ago it started with a countdown that ended with a new song and a tour announcement. Today, LIGHTS has released another song called “Portal” that will come from her much anticipated followup to Siberia, entitled Little Machines.

The song is incredibly minimalistic, based around what sounds like one chord and a simple drum beat, that apparently was created from her belly drumming when she was pregnant with her daughter. It’s a very dreamy and echo-y track but still has simple touches of the EDM that the girl is no stranger to.

Along with the release …

Minus The Bear

STREAM: Minus the Bear – “The Lucky Ones”

As previously announced, Minus the Bear are heading out on tour to support their “new” album and the anniversary of They Make Beer Commercials Like This EP.

The album will be entitled Lost Loves, and is a collection of songs recorded during Planet of Ice, Omni and Infinity Overhead. And today, they released one of the songs from that album, called “The Lucky Ones.” The song is apparently taken from sessions when recording Infinity Overhead, which was their last album, released in 2012. This band can do no wrong.

Ben Howard Releases New Track “End of the Affair”

If Ben Howard has somehow slid under your radar up to this day, please make this change. I’m going to assume he hasn’t, and get to the point.

His new album is coming. No real details as of yet, so we have to impatiently wait in a state of unknown. But last night, on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show, they played a new song called “End of the Affair.”

This track, coming in at just short of eight minutes, is one hell of a journey. It starts out as normal, with a mesmerizing acoustic lick joined in with his poignant …

TV On The Radio Announce ‘Seeds’

One of the most prominent indie bands of the 2000s is back. In a relatively unexpected move, TV On the Radio has announced Seeds, their first new full-length since 2011, when they released Nine Types of Light. This just became my most anticipated release for the remainder of the year.

The band uploaded a teaser trailer to YouTube, and it’s literally that. The short 26-second video shows a very colorful, funnel-shaped foam creation and features what sounds like the ending of a song. Regardless, it’s exciting.

No date has been announced, but the rumor is that it’s set for …

The Gaslight Anthem 2012

STREAM: The Gaslight Anthem – “Stay Vicious”

The Gaslight Anthem keeps driving the anticipation of their new album, Get Hurt, to new levels.

We’ve already heard “Get Hurt” and “Rollin’ and Tumblin’”, and of course we love it.

Now the band has released its third track from the album, “Stay Vicious.” The track reaches further down in their southern roots and grabs them by the balls. Its dirty and raw verses are juxtaposed with “pretty,” melodic choruses. Throw in a stunning guitar solo and the customary passionate lyrics, we have another track that TGA fans are going to fall in love with fast.

Billy Corgan has always gone against the odds. The albums, Monuments To An Elegy and Day For Night, have been set for an early 2015 release date.

Well, today we have officially been informed that the first album of the two, Monuments To An Elegy, is complete. Corgan commented on the band’s website saying that it’s “one of the easiest and most pleasurable …

How To Dress Well Shares “Let U Know” and Adds Tour Dates

After the release of the fantastic What Is This Heart?, How To Dress Well is streaming one more beautiful track that wasn’t on the proper release, but was recorded during and was a track that’s necessary for everyone to hear, called “Let U Know.”

In the press release, he mentions the origin of his album title and how this song is apparently a “partial cover of a song by [Tom] Krell’s friend oFF Love.” “In singing ‘Let U Know,’ I discovered the title of my album and a lot of its meaning — I needed this song to be …
