Buffalo, NY’s Well Kept Things Are About To Be Your New Favorite Band

We’ve probably said this a dozen times before, but there is nothing in this life quite like the rush you feel when stumbling upon an undiscovered talent. Be it musician, painter, filmmaker, or something else entirely, there is something about that rush of emotion and excitement that accompanies a new artistic discovery that cannot be matched by pills or everyday living. It’s the kind of high you seek out every day in every place you look, but more often than not cannot find. Hell, it has probably been two months or more since I’ve heard a song that made me …

Troy Sennett best of 2013

Troy Sennett’s ‘Best of 2013′ In Music

Let’s talk about moments.

Around 5:00 PM on June 8, 2013, I watched Spitalfield play “Stolen From Some Great Writer” to an empty theater. This was a band I never thought I would have the chance to see live soundchecking for a ten-year anniversary performance of Remember Right Now, a record that had a huge impact on me as a musician and as a person in my early teens. It was intensely personal and universal at the same time, one of those moments that made me feel like a part of something bigger than myself while also acting as …

UTG INTERVIEW: Less Than Jake Discuss Their New Album and the State of Music

“HEY GIRLS! HEY GIRLLLL! ARE YOU THERE?” whispers Chris DeMakes, frontman of Less Than Jake as we begin our interview in the back on the band’s tour bus. Fortunately for my comfort’s sake, he was speaking directly into my audio recorder and assured me “I’m just making sure it’s working.”

It was the first date of a summer tour featuring Less Than Jake, with our buddies in Hostage Calm and Pentimento along for the ride. Fortunately, Under The Gun got to speak with Chris DeMakes (guitar, vocals) and Roger Manganelli (bass, vocals) one on one about the guys’ new …
