Listen to FKA Twigs’ New Song “Video Girl”

After a lot of online buzz and some well-deserved hype, British experimental R&B artist FKA Twigs has three weeks left until her debut album, LP1, drops August 12 via Young Turks. In anticipation, she’s shared the second track off the record, “Video Girl,” which you can stream below.

Unlike the sultriness of “Two Weeks” and the hard-hitting specifics of “Hide,” the new single sees trip-hop and guitar strums intertwined as FKA Twigs once again brings pained words to life with her golden croon. In an interview with Pitchfork, she said the song was written after …

Hilary Duff Returns With “Chasing The Sun”

Having taken a few years off to start a family and mature as a person, former Disney starlet Hilary Duff is kickstarting her comeback this week with the release of a new single titled “Chasing The Sun.”

Scheduled for release in the US on July 29, “Chasing The Sun” reintroduces Hilary Duff to the world with beautiful and immediately infectious acoustic accompaniment. The high-gloss pop sound she once clung to has now been replaced with quiet pop sensibilities, which I believe is best for both Duff and her loyal followers. I don’t think this is necessarily the catchiest song of …

Mega Bog Announce Debut Album ‘Gone Banana,’ Stream “Year of Patience”

After 5 years of self-released material and re-writing songs, Mega Bog are finally ready to share their debut album. Titled Gone Banana, the album drops September 23 via Couple Skate and showcases the group’s lo-fi jazz rock sound. Finally, a band you and your dad can agree on.

With Kevin Ayers and Steely Dan influences, the band have traces of psychedelia and mall jazz in their songs while keeping the songwriting core tender. Lead single “Year of Patience” introduces the band nicely with a strutting saxophone line and Erin Birgy’s coy vocals, taking on the sounds of Ariel Pink, Prefab …

MUSIC VIDEO: Maybeshewill – “In Amber”

We last heard from UK post-rock outfit Maybeshewill in 2011 when they debuted a quintessential record in the form of I Was Here For A Moment, Then I Was Gone. After three years of patiently waiting for even a glimpse of new material to follow up the monumental release, the band have finally unveiled “In Amber,” the first cut from their forthcoming full-length, Fair Youth. After listening through the track multiple times, it quickly becomes apparent it was more than well worth the wait as it just might be the most mature piece of music Maybeshewill have written to …

LISTEN: Rustie – “Attak” (Feat. Danny Brown)

Rustie is arguably one of the music scene’s most exciting producers in his own right, but when combining his instrumental prowess with the unmistakable flow of a rapper such as Danny Brown (as seen on last year’s “Dope Song”), some of the best music one will hear during the weeks and months surrounding their collaborations’ release comes to fruition. Fortunately for us, the two artists have linked up once more, this time for a brand track called “Attak.” Coming from Rustie’s forthcoming LP, Green Language, the single finds him and Brown putting on an absolute clinic for how to …

He Is Legend

He Is Legend Stream “Smoker Scoff”

It’s almost as if He Is Legend are trying to challenge their fans’ expectations with every new track they’ve put out in preparation for the release of their forthcoming effort, Heavy Fruit. A stream of their latest track, “Smoker Scoff” was released earlier today at Metal Injection and can be heard either there or following the jump.

I will hand it to them, they might be leaning towards radio alt-rock with their latest material, but they’re doing it really well. Clearly, frontman Schuylar Croom can truly attempt to write music for whichever genre he wants, because he most definitely has …

Wildcat! Wildcat!

Hear Wildcat! Wildcat!’s New Single “Holloway (Hey, Love)”

Los Angeles trio Wildcat! Wildcat! recently recorded their full-length debut, No Moon at All, set to come out on August 5 via Downtown Records. Co-produced with collaborator Morgan Kibby (M83, White Sea), the record sees the electronic indie pop group creating “an emotionally rousing world” all of which is captured on ten tracks. We’ve already heard the lead single “Hero,” and today we get to hear “Holloway (Hey, Love).”

The new song is a bright blend of reverb drums, thin layers of synth, and harmonies worth singing with friends that maintains an intimacy throughout. Give it a …

LISTEN: LIGHTS – “Up We Go”

Three years since the release of her sophomore full-length, Siberia, electro-pop sweetheart LIGHTS is finally back with a slew of exciting announcements.

Most importantly, she has revealed her brand new record, Little Machines, will hit stores September 23 via Warner Bros. Fortunately for impatient fans, Little Machines is already available to pre-order on iTunes.

Furthermore, she has released the record’s debut single, “Up We Go.” While more radio friendly than her previous material, it still carries the undeniably infectious nature of the rest of LIGHTS’ work, so be sure to check it out after the jump.…

Hostage Calm Premiere New Music Video and Announce ‘Die On Stage’

After first listening to Hostage Calm’s late 2012 release, Please Remain Calm, I thought I was hearing the Connecticut-based band at their very best. After giving “Your Head/Your Heart” a play for the first time, I find myself corrected.

The quartet’s music video for the lead single off their newly announced album, Die On Stage, was shared by AV Club earlier today and can be found following the jump. Yes, they may be clinging to their 60s shtick more than ever before, but I suppose this is just another case of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” …

Earlier this year, UK producer SBTRKT dropped a surprise EP out of nowhere. Today, he has announced the release of Wonder Where We Land, his highly-anticipated follow-up to his 2011 self-titled debut. Oh 2014, how sweet you are. The album artwork is above and a creepy trailer for the album can be seen after the jump.

SBTRKT will premiere the album’s first single on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 program later this afternoon. The best part? It features Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig. Stay tuned for a stream of …

Kanye West Announces New Single “All Day,” Explains Why Jay Z and Beyonce Missed His Wedding

GQ magazine’s latest issue stars none other than Kanye West and his cover story is an extensive interview that delves into new music, his wedding, and what he thinks of Drake (“Let’s be honest—he got last summer.”). The most exciting bit of the interview is that Kanye does announce he has a new single on the way titled “All Day” that will drop in “the next couple of weeks.” According to Kanye, it’s a club song (like “Don’t Like” or “Niggas in Paris”). As for the album, it’s coming in “most likely September.”

UTG PREMIERE: The Most Dangerous Animal – “Snack”

Earlier this year — in May, to be specific — we had the chance to premiere a live music video for The Most Dangerous Animal, a promising punk outfit hailing from Flint, Michigan. A few months later with the band still going strong on our radar, we’re excited to bring the Save Your Generations Records outfit to your attention once more in the form a brand new track.

Entitled “Snack,” the cut is yet another shining example of the group’s ability to make one powerful piece of music as all the raw energy one could ask for courses through …
