UTG INTERVIEW: Foreign Tongues Discuss Their Current Sound And What’s Next

On a chilly autumn evening I made my way north to the Riverwalk Cafe in Nashua, NH to see Foreign Tongues and a line-up of local artists. The Riverwalk Cafe is a wonderful coffeehouse that has just recently expanded its territory into a new bar. The environment is warm, welcoming, and a perfect indie outlet for the Nashua area, a place that seems to be lacking in local venues.

I watched as Foreign Tongues unleashed a wave of distortion, emotion, and static, flawlessly performing their set. Featuring tracks spanning their entire discography, the band emitted energy, calm, and consistency as …

Puig Destroyer Stream “No One Cares About Your Fantasy Team”

With the baseball season nearing its end, grindcore/baseball mogul-filled band Puig Destroyer released another song today.

Premiering on Deadspin, the track is called “No One Cares About Your Fantasy Team” and it’s a blazing 48-second song literally about no one caring about your fantasy team. The track is part of a twenty-song slew of baseball-related subjects like the previous single they released named “Mike Trout”, who is about none other than the Los Angeles Angels star.

UTG INTERVIEW: Maps for Travelers Talk New Album; Release Live Recording of New Song

Patience is one of the toughest lessons to learn in anything. The ability to overcome adversity and see something good through the rough is what separates the men from the boys.

Maps for Travelers of Kansas City are no strangers to that. Signing with No Sleep Records last year, and putting out a killer record shortly after, didn’t happen without hardships. Multiple member changes took place within the band which made recording hectic, but these guys have seen the sunrise. Now they’re on a hard grind of playing shows, reaching new grounds and perfecting their already superb live shows by …
