Run The Jewels Share “Blockbuster Night Pt. 2″

This year, Run The Jewels have become official overachievers. The second full-length from El-P and Killer Mike, RTJ2,  comes out today via iTunes, but the duo put it up for free to download on Friday because why not? They got enough money to move forward with Meow the Jewels, their remix of the album using only cat noises. They announced a worldwide art project called Tag The Jewels, a call for 30 street artists to paint their interpretation of the logo on street walls. They’re unstoppable.

To celebrate the album release, they’re sharing the sequel to single …

Soundgarden Surprise Fans With New Single “Storm”

Soundgarden may be the old guys in the world of modern rock, but that isn’t stopping one of the most influential bands of the last two decades from keeping fans on their toes.

Last night, without warning, the men of Soundgarden surprised critics and fans worldwide with the unannounced release of a new track titled “Storm.” The post-grunge effort feels lifted from the back half of Superunkown, with a laid back groove that listeners can ride from beginning to end. I don’t think it will capture the attention of the masses as much as some of the band’s previous …

One Direction Recruit Danny Devito For “Steal My Girl” Video

One Direction may seem like any other boy band that has ever existed to those who do not invest much time in such things, but truth be told they are actually quite unique. For starters, they don’t dance in unison. They also don’t take themselves all that serious, which is proven once and for all in their new video for “Steal My Girl.”

Set in a desert far from any major city, the official video for “Steal My Girl” opens with the members of One Direction asking one another where their director has gone. Moments later, the man in question …

Foo Fighters Stream “The Feast And The Famine”

Just a week after fans devoured “Something From Nothing,” Foo Fighters have shared another song off their highly anticipated new album.

“The Feast And The Famine” arrived online early this morning. The track is the second to surface off Foo Fighters’ Sonic Highways album, which found the band recording eight songs across eight US cities, and it is the result of the band’s time in Washington D.C. You can stream the song, in full, below:…

Song Of The Week: In The Whale – “Ride”

Denver rock duo In The Whale have spent 2014 becoming one of the most closely watched buzz bands in the world of rock. Now, following the release of two killer EPs and numerous nationwide tours, the band have shared a new track that rips like no other single in recent memory.

I know not everyone who reads this post was able to attend Riot Fest Denver, but had you been there you would know In The Whale opened their set with the killer cut you’re about to hear. Before the song was halfway over you could see people running …

Zella Day Releases Debut EP With “Hypnotic” Single

Zella Day‘s self-titled debut EP was released today via B3SCI Records, and as three of its four tracks have been readily available online for some time now, the final to be released, titled “Hypnotic,” is now streaming as a single and it’s already gaining traction with ease.

Out of the four excellent tracks on the EP, this is the one I think would most likely break through to top 40 first. It’s easily accessible for fans of pop music, with Day’s beautifully inviting vocals hovering above the caliber of most popular radio jams currently in rotation. We’ve been saying …

Bring Me The Horizon Debut A New Sound With “Drown”

Bring Me The Horizon have spent the last few years evolving, and the results have been evident in every piece of music they released. Their latest is no exception, and in fact might be the biggest change in sound the band has delivered to date.

“Drown” arrived online early this morning following an accidental reveal by the band’s label. The song boasts a very straightforward rock sound, with absolutely no screaming to be found anywhere in its four-minute runtime. Instead, Sykes sings about holes in his soul and how the weight of the world is increasingly hard to hold up. …

Ty Dolla $ign & Belly Remix The Weeknd’s “King Of The Fall”

Canadian crooner The Weeknd has become one of the most sought after voices in modern R&B and hip-hop circles, so it’s always exciting to see any release with his name attached. Remixes featuring other artists are a bit of a catch-22 when it comes to his tracks, though, as it’s no easy task to hop on one of his songs and offer something that genuinely improves the original work. In the case of Ty Dolla $ign and Belly’s new found effort, their added verses don’t exactly detract from “King Of The Fall,” but it’s indeed hard to decide if they …

Calvin Harris And Ellie Goulding Collaborate On New Single “Outside”

Just when you managed to get “I Need Your Love” out of your head, the phenomenal pop collaboration that gave the world 2013′s best EDM single has delivered yet another monster single.

Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding have shared a brand new track titled “Outside.” The song is the latest to surface from Harris’ upcoming studio album, Motion, which is due in stores November 4. The song features Goulding’s angelic voice talking about life on the outside, with thumping bass and infectious synth providing all the accompaniment your dance music loving mind can handle. Check it out:…

Gwen Stefani Returns With New Single “Baby Don’t Lie”

This may seem almost impossible to believe, but eight long years have passed since Gwen Stefani released any new material. For a short time she was the reigning queen of alternative pop, but then her focus switched to family and though we were sad we could not complain.

Today, Gwen Stefani is back in music headlines with the release of a new single titled “Baby Don’t Lie.” The song is built on thick waves of anthemic synth, which Stefani uses to craft a story about romance and deception that harkens back to her previous hits while delivering a decidedly more …

UTG PREMIERE: The Native Howl – “Death Jam”

Allow us to introduce Michigan folk-rock band, The Native Howl, a group of singer-songwriters and entrepreneurs that are busy carving out a local scene and chasing a dream.

Lead vocalists Alex Holycross and Jake Sawicki had been friends and musicians in the same area for several years before venturing into what would become The Native Howl. Early on, Sawicki was working a corporate job, spending evenings writing music. Holycross on the other hand was busy starting up a recording studio in Leonard, MI, which he and The Native Howl team currently manage.

When the group began working together they …

New Drake Track “How About Now” Hits The Net

Drizzy Drake is either trying a strange new form of viral promotion or he really needs to get a handle on who has control of his unreleased music because a new song hit the web without warning today and it’s quickly taking the net by storm.

“How About Now” found its way online shortly after noon on Sunday, October 19. The track was originally posted on Soundcloud by a 19-year-old fan from Georgia that has yet to reveal how they came to have the track in their possession. The song has since been removed from that page, but it lives …
