Ghostface Killah and BADBADNOTGOOD Announce Album; Share New Track

So early this year, we heard a track called “Six Degrees” by a collaboration between Ghostface Killah of Wu-Tang Clan and the band BADBADNOTGOOD, which featured a verse from Danny Brown. It was nasty good, and now the collab has announced that they have worked out a whole album worth of material.

Entitled Sour Soul, and produced by Frank Dukes (50 Cent, Lloyd Banks), the group will release it early next year.

The mesh of funky rhythms and lines that flow perfectly with the verses of the Iron Man of rap make for a killer collaboration. The …

James Blake Shares Track “Building It Still” on BBC Radio 1

James Blake has been far from quiet about what’s going on with his new record. On BBC Radio 1, he has shared a handful of new tracks from it, including “200 Press.”

Last night, he shared another one with fans, called “Building It Still.” With every new track, it seems like Blake is moving further from a vocalist and more towards a producer, and I can’t say I hate it. He continues to impress and this song stands on that idea. This song reminisces of recent Burial tracks and has a tinge of melodies that could come from …

Transit Joyride

Transit Share “Too Little, Too Late”

If you’ve kept up with anything over the past few days, you’ve known about the ’12 Days of Transit’ which has them sharing the remainder of their new record, Joyride, up until the release date. And if you’re like us, you’re loving every single day of it.

Well, continuing with the chain, today Transit posted the track “Too Little, Too Late.” It’s a sure pop anthem that is arguably the best we’ve heard so far. It’s catchy, serious and necessary in all the right places. The infectiousness of this band is overwhelming and this track spills that all over …

Caribou Our Love

Caribou Tell A Story About Age With “Our Love” Video

This week Caribou just released their new album, Our Love, which was the follow-up to the hugely successful 2010 effort, Swim. To accompany the album, Dan Snaith has shared the video for the title track.

The video shows a commentary on aging, as it follows an elderly lady through the journey of her day, as she wakes up and retraces her steps to other spots and events in life. She also periodically will appear in younger or older form. It’s very well done and is an interesting take on the idea of time and aging. Ryan Staake, who …

REVIEW: From Indian Lakes – ‘Absent Sounds’

Artist: From Indian Lakes
Album: Absent Sounds
Label: Triple Crown Records
Genre: Indie

Sometimes bands just do everything right. And the band thrives. And the music is the soundtrack for masses. And the band is proud of their work. And they continue to succeed. That’s what we hope for every single band that we love.

Melodic indie has a weird niche in the music scene. It’s either one of two things. Exactly what I just mentioned, or it’s incredibly bland and just exists for a bit. From Indian Lakes are not that. This band embodies the former example, especially this …

Set It off

Set It Off Stream New Album ‘Duality’

It’s been two years since the debut release of Set It Off’s Cinematics, which has become a staple album for the new era of pop-punk.

The band is set to release its new album, Duality, next week, and we’ve already heard songs from it like “Tomorrow” and “N.M.E.“.

Well, now the band is streaming the full album over at MTV.com. So now you can taste it all, before you buy it, which you should do. You can pre-order it here. …

Minus The Bear

Get Acquainted With All of Minus the Bear’s ‘Lost Loves’

Lost Loves is not new. It’s not old. It’s just a collection of songs that have never had a proper recording, or that we didn’t know existed.

Well, finally Minus the Bear have given us this package of glorious songs that were recorded during the sessions of Planet of Ice, Omni, and Infinity Overhead. Having heard “The Lucky Ones” and “Cat Calls & Ill Means,” the band isn’t trying to hide the prior fact.

The album has a strange sense of unity, as the songs aren’t clunky, or obviously recorded at different times. …

From Indian Lakes Share Another New Song Called “Breathe, Desperately”

If you haven’t noticed how great From Indian Lakes is by now, despite my uncertainty of how and why, after listening to “Breathe, Desperately,” you won’t be able to ignore it any longer. With both videos for “Ghost” and “Sleeping Limbs,” the band’s new album Absent Sounds should be all over your radar and should be your most anticipated album for the remainder of the year.

Filled with full and melodic guitar parts from beginning to end, in-your-face drum fills and rhythms, and the majestic, yet subtle voice of Joey Vannuchi, the song delivers literally everything …

night terrors of 1927

Watch the Video for Night Terrors of 1927′s “When You Were Mine”

Night Terrors of 1927 have a new EP out today. With the effort, they’ve released a lyric video for their song with Tegan & Sara, called “When You Were Mine.”

It sounds like what you would get if you soaked up The Killers and m83 into a sponge and then slowly let it drip out into your ears. It’s brilliant. Filled with nostalgia and a distinct pop sensibility, you will find yourself loving every minute of it, while you sing the chorus with the group. It could become the perfect anthem for the Fall, as we slowly begin to miss …

Boardroom Heroes

Today, our friends in DC-based skate punk band Boardroom Heroes released a music video for their song “New Wage.” The video takes place in DC, and gives you a sneak peak into life in their hometown.

However, what makes this video special to us is that not only is it by a band we all love, but the video was also directed and produced by Under The Gun staffer Tyler Osborne. For more information about his work, or if you would like to work on a video with him, check out out his studio ToZ Productions.

Well, today the band has given us the album, Broken Compass, in its entirety, for our streaming pleasure. If it’s anything like the songs we’ve heard so far and the band’s live show, it’s going to be full of rock riffs, powerful and moving …
