UTG VIDEO PREMIERE: Outsides – “The Ones”

Outsides is an electronic-pop outfit straight out of the heart of America. After performing at Lollapalooza, and gaining some local recognition in Chicago, the band’s frontman, Tim Ellis, moved to his beloved Kansas City, where he grew up and has been attempting to gain notoriety and recognition nationally with his take on electronic music.

After seeing the live performance, we’ve no doubt that Outsides has the capacity and ability to appeal to the masses that the likes of M83 and Passion Pit have in the past.

UTG has been given the privilege of premiering Outsides’ new lyric video for their …

UTG PREMIERE: Watch For Horses – “Not Another Love Song”

California independent label Wiretap Records has brought together two acts from its state to release a 7″ split. Featuring Watch For Horses and Indian School, the effort is slated to hit stores in January, but we’ve teamed up with the equestrian influenced outfit to premiere one of the songs from their half of the record.

Entitled “Not Another Love Song,” Watch For Horses’ cut features cheery indie rock instrumentals with a chorus of fuzzed-out vocals to match. It brings a much appreciated sense of warmth to the table as winter approaches, so start your day off right and give …

UTG PREMIERE: Don Vedda – “Casanova” Lyric Video

We don’t usually run premieres at night, but when Don Vedda asked us to hold this post until the sun had set we were more than happy to oblige.

Oh, what’s that? You don’t know about Don Vedda? Fear not. We have partnered with the fast-rising rock group to host the world premiere of their new lyric video for “Casanova,” featuring Snea. It’s a hard-hitting track with crashing drums and chugging guitars to spare. You can view the visuals, in full, at the end of this post.

Speaking about the track, Don Vedda offered:

Amy Rose Premieres “Awake Alive”

Australian synth-pop artist Amy Rose has teamed up with Pigeons And Planes to premiere a brand new single. Entitled “Awake Alive,” the cut quickly inspires comparisons with Imogen Heap and Feist due to its chilling take on 21st century pop as Rose’s soothing yet powerful vocals stretch across an atmosphere dominated by pulsating synths and keys.

UTG PREMIERE: Act As If – “Easier”

The weekend is almost here, so in our minds it is as good a time as any to forget about work and focus on what really matters: Discovering great new music.

Today, we have the great honor of partnering with fast-rising pop rock outfit Act As If to premiere the closing track from their highly anticipated new album. The song, titled “Easier,” knocked us off our collective feet when it first blared throughout our offices, and in the days that followed it could be heard booming from various individual work spaces. To say we’ve fallen head over heels would probably …

Swingin' Utters

UTG PREMIERE: Swingin’ Utters – “I’m Not Coming Home”

Today, the UTG offices are pleased to share with you a brand new track from Swingin’ Utters, titled “I’m Not Coming Home.” The track comes off of Swingin’ Utters’ upcoming album, Fistful of Hollow, and it’s every bit as fun as you’d expect. The song brings their definitive West Coast punk vibe right off the bat, and is the perfect soundtrack to driving to the beach, or just away from anywhere you don’t really feel like being.

We talked to guitarist Darius Koski about where the inspiration for the song came from, and how “I’m Not Coming Home” fits …

The track is the first to be released off Fear Mint Vol. 1, an upcoming split the band is releasing through the label with fellow fast-rising buzz band Brick Top. …

Helen Earth Band

UTG PREMIERE: Helen Earth Band – “Castaway”

Helen Earth Band could have been a band’s band. You know the type – musically-proficient with off-kilter tunes, primed for validation via other musicians while casual listeners missed the point. But We Fucking Quit, their second full-length, resonates wider than that. Helen Earth Band’s Braidtastic brand packs the punch that’ll win over general audiences while keeping musicians wide-eyed in amazement. It’s mathy, it’s catchy, and it’s just damn good.

We’re thrilled to premiere “Castaway” from their upcoming LP, due October 21 from Youth Conspiracy Records. Once you swallow that goodness, grab a digital pre-order (vinyl’s scheduled for 2015). The …
