UTG VIDEO PREMIERE: Jeremy Loops – “Sinner”

Every now and then, a folk artist comes our way that leaves us completely floored. In 2008, it was Fleet Foxes. In 2012, it was First Aid Kit. Now, in 2014, it’s Jeremy Loops.

Fresh out of Cape Town, South Africa, Jeremy Loops is a modern folk musician whose music is just now reaching our shores. While his debut album, Trading Change, has already debuted at #1 on his homeland’s iTunes chart, the 27-year-old is still beginning to form his place here in the US. The one-man folk act scratches up a percussive sound thanks to his loop pedal. …

This morning, the band released their very first music video for their album’s title track “Cold Bones,” via Alternative Press. The video shows some studio footage and clips of the boys out on the road that accompany some performance shots. You can check out the video …

Nicki Minaj Releases “Anaconda” Video, Puts Miley To Shame

Move over Ms. Cyrus, there is another pop queen who wants a little time in the controversy spotlight.

Nicki Minaj has never been one to shy away from her sexuality, and it she made it clear she was holding no punches when she revealed the cover art to her latest single, “Anaconda,” a few weeks back. The song’s debut made that even more evident, with talk of sexual exploits, past lovers, and plenty of ass love. It was everything you expected, yet somehow more.

Today, Nicki released the video for “Anaconda,” and it’s chock full of things that …

Stream Henrietta’s ‘The Trick Is Not Minding’ In Its Entirety

We had the great honor of premiering a song by Henrietta earlier this month, and to be perfectly honest I was unfamiliar with the band up to that point. Since that day, however, I have quickly fallen in love with everything Henrietta deliver through their music. It’s almost impossible to describe the way their upcoming album, The Trick Is Not Minding, makes me feel. Fortunately, thanks to Purevolume I no longer have to explain anything because I can simply share the record with all of you.

Today, the members of Henrietta partnered with Purevolume to launch a full album …

UTG PREMIERE: Henrietta – “Leave It Alone”

You have to love what Henrietta‘s swinging. The Orlando quartet push a great brand of emo-tinged rock with mathy elements, a friendly formula for fans of Braid, Balance & Composure, The American Scene or even Minus The Bear. The sound’s perfectly unrefined, just as it should be – bleeding with raw urgency while offering great technical moments in a perfect package.

Today we’re premiering a new song from the band’s upcoming LP, The Trick Is Not Minding.

Give “Leave It Alone” a listen below, grab the vinyl via Animal Style Records, hear a few more songs on …

Morrissey Streams New Album, ‘World Peace Is None Of Your Business,’ In Full

The wait is over, fellow Moz lovers. After months of promotion and a handful of spoken word videos that offered as much confusion as enlightenment, the man, myth, and legend known as Morrissey has deemed us worthy of hearing his new album.
