NIKOS

UTG PREMIERE: NIKOS – “Illusions”

Gearing up for the release of their self-titled EP on October 21, NIKOS are dropping the provocative pop track “Illusions” exclusively via Under The Gun Review. Dark enough to make you bang your head, yet catchy enough to stick with you for hours to come, NIKOS are creating a new brand of aggressive, driven pop music.

The band is out on the High School Nation tour this Fall with Drake Bell (yes, the guy from Drake & Josh), Jacob Latimore, and others. Catch this act now before the record drops and an inevitable explosion of popularity occurs. Singer Nikos …

Azealia Banks 2012

Azealia Banks Shares New Song “Chasing Time”

Last we heard from Harlem rapper Azealia Banks, she had dropped a music video for her new single “Heavy Metal and Reflective.” Now the buzz girl has shared a new song called “Chasing Time” and we may not be able to listen to anything else all day.

“Chasing Time” sees Banks laying down a dreamy swirl of smooth production and quick, rounded raps. It seems ever since she cut herself from Interscope, Banks is shaping her extremely delayed album, Broke With Expensive Taste, exactly how she wants to. If she wanted to prove she’s more than …

Kendrick-Lamar-I

Required Listening: Kendrick Lamar – “I”

There is an entire generation walking the planet today who may have very well lived their entire lives without knowing of or listening to the work of The Isley Brothers. Thanks to Kendrick Lamar however, that is about to change.

This morning, Kendrick Lamar broke his long-standing radio silence with the release of a new song titled “I.” The track, which samples the Isley Brothers’ “That Lady,” is the first track to surface from the Compton raised artist since the release of his debut album nearly two years back. You can stream the song, in full, at the end of …

Flying Lotus You're Dead!

Flying Lotus Shares New Song “Coronus, The Terminator”

Producer, electronic musician, and general genius Flying Lotus drops his highly-anticipated new album, You’re Dead!, via Warp Records on October 7. It’s a massive 19-track release that is following up 2012′s brilliant Until The Quiet Comes with a more jazz-oriented setup and guest star studded flair. In anticipation of the release, he’s shared single “Coronus, The Terminator.”

Unlike the rhythmic flurry of “Moment of Hesitation” and the edgy point of Kendrick Lamar collab “Never Catch Me,” this song strolls down the psychedelic route with a leisurely yawn. Things begin to get dark at one point, …

Jessie Ware Tough Love

Listen to Jessie Ware’s New Single “Kind Of … Sometimes … Maybe”

There’s only a few weeks left until UK singer Jessie Ware shares her follow-up album to 2012′s breakout Devotion. The album, titled Tough Love, drops October 21 via PMR/Island Records. In support of the release, she’s shared single “Kind Of … Sometimes … Maybe.” It’s a bit different than the gorgeous “Say You Love Me” and the title track, but maybe that’s because fellow R&B crooner Miguel helped her write this one.

“The British prude in me was nearly banished when I had to whisper sweet nothings for this track,” Ware said to Complex when explaining how …

A New Dance Gavin Dance Single Has Surfaced Online

Apparently Dance Gavin Dance have a new single titled “Pussy Vultures.” They haven’t made any announcements, but it’s been on Spotify for about 24 hours. It should come as no surprise that there is a new song, as the band recently announced that they were working on their next LP. Their drummer, Matthew Mingus, also tweeted that he just finished tracking the drums. Does that mean we might see a 2015 release from the group? Let’s hope so!

You can listen to “Pussy Vultures” by taking a look below the break. It’s pretty awesome.…

French Montana Streams “Suicide”

French Montana has been relatively quiet on the music front recently, but today that changed as the New York emcee delivered a solo cut that may surprise some haters.

I will forever be the first person to admit that French Montana does not have the best track record with solo material. His mixtape game was strong back in the day, but since Meek went mainstream and became the type of rapper mentioned as much for his relationships as music, something began to change. He became a gimmick, with his best work being whatever was delivered in guest appearances.

All that …

Angel Olsen

Angel Olsen Shares New Song “All Right Now”

This year has seen folk singer-songwriter Angel Olsen taking the media by storm. Her newest album, Burn Your Fire For No Witness, got endless praise from us and saw her making TV appearances in addition to a worldwide tour. Now, months after its release in February, the album is getting a deluxe reissue full of unreleased tracks.

The reissue, out November 18 via Jagjaguwar, is a two-disc set with five bonus tracks. Two were previously available as 7″ singles during the orginal pre-order campaign, whereas the other three are unreleased from the album’s recording session. Today we get to …

As promised, Stolas have released the second single from their upcoming album Allomaternal, which comes out October 15 on Blue Swan Records.

Called “Hiraeth,” the latest taste of their upcoming album demonstrates some of the more laid-back sounds to come with the new record, which was recorded with producer Kris Crummett at Interlace Audio.

The band will continue to support the Blue Swan Records Tour until October 12, so be sure to check them out if you haven’t already. Of course, you can stream “Hiraeth” below the jump as well:…

Meatbodies

Meatbodies (feat. Ty Segall and Mikal Cronin Member) Share New Track “Disorder”

Chad Ubovich has plenty of experience playing guitar and bass behind both psych rock gods Ty Segall and Mikal Cronin. Between tours with them, he spent his time recording his own crunchy fuzz as Chad and the Meatbodies. Now he’s shortened the name, written up 12 tracks, and teamed up with Cory Hanson of Wand and Erik Jimenez of Together Pangea to create a heavy debut, their self-titled album out October 14 via In The Red.

“Disorder” sees the Ty Segall and Mikal Cronin members doing what they do best: thrashing. Every power chord riff goes hand-in-hand with crazy …

Album: TBA

A year and a half after making a bold attempt to Save Rock And Roll, Fall Out Boy have returned to music headlines with the release of a new single titled “Centuries.” The track, which debuted online earlier this week, finds the band building on the sonic foundation of the last album in ways that have so far divided longtime supporters.

SBTRKT Wonder Where We Land

SBTRKT Shares New Track “Higher” featuring Raury

Producer STBRKT has shared another new track from his forthcoming album, Wonder Where We Land, called “Higher.”

The track also features an up-and-coming artist by the name of Raury, who spits verses so quick in this song that you have to go back and listen a couple of times to catch what he’s saying. This is the first time I’ve heard of him, but apparently he also just released his own mixtape, called Indigo Child, which is getting some eyes in its direction.

The track is very basic, some bass and a quick beat, with some droney keys. …
