Hear Riff Raff and Action Bronson Team Up on “Rookies of the Future”

When Jody Highroller puts anything out, it’s safe to bet the song will be as ridiculous as the rapper’s entire look. On his newest track, Riff Raff skirts around any incredible lines by relying on a pretty smooth beat, courtesy of Alchemist, and the hard-hitting words of fellow rapper Action Bronson. The song, titled “Rookies of The Future,” sees both men exchanging verses over the course of the 3-minute song, although truth be told, the song feels much longer in the best way possible.

Don’t forget to check out Action Bronson’s latest video, “Easy Rider,” which sees …

Julian Casablancas’ New Album Can Be Bought As a USB Cigarette Lighter

It’s been five years since his last solo album, and as such, The Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas is dropping his sophomore solo album, Tyranny, on September 23 via his own Cult Records imprint. In anticipation, he’s released a whole slew of details about the album.

For starters, we finally got the album artwork and the 12-song tracklist to the Phrazes for the Young follow-up, listed after the jump, in addition to the previously announced tour. He also shared an 11-minute track titled “Human Sadness,” making it the album’s lead single. It’s cinematic, dark, and full of auto-tune. Stream …

Trinidad Jame$ Raps About The Problems With Police On “Mr. Officer”

Trinidad Jame$ has released a new single every week since the news broke that he was no longer a part of the Def Jam family, and this week has proven no different.

Rapping about the recent events in Ferguson, as well as his own experiences, Jame$ uses “Mr. Officer” to talk about the interactions people have with members of law enforcement across the country. That may lead you to believe this is a song fueled by rage, but in truth it’s the furthest thing from a hard-hitting rant against police. The track is honestly pretty laid back, with a chorus …

Jeremy Loops

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. …

SOHN

SOHN Streams New Single “The Chase”

Electronic musician SOHN dropped his debut album, Tremors, via 4AD earlier this year. The Vienna-based musician is now returning to our attention with a brand new song called “The Chase”.”

The track is a modern ambient piece that sees SOHN singing beautifully over it. Sporadic synth pools in the background before ’80s-style keys make an appearance. All in all, it’s well worth the listen, especially if you’ve been burning through Tremors. Give it a listen after the jump.

SOHN will also be touring this September around England. He kicks off his dates at the iTunes Festival in Lodnon before …

In addition to “All This Could Be Yours,” Cold War Kids have shared a new single titled “First.” It’s a swelling, stadium-ready number that’s equally as uplifting as it is relaxing thanks to handclaps, harmonies, and …

Florida Georgia Line Anything Goes 2014

Florida Georgia Line Share “Anything Goes” Song Teaser

One of the hottest stories on the site this week has been the surprise live debut of a new song from Florida Georgia Line over the weekend. The group, whose new album is due out in October, have since released a short teaser offering fans a studio quality taste of their next single.

Opening with the lines, “Alabamba on the boombox, baby / Bout to get a little boondocks crazy,” it doesn’t take long to recognize “Anything Goes” as signature Florida Georgia Line material. The duo has always prided themselves on their ability to create relatable music through use of …

Buke and Gase

Buke and Gase Share Single, Announce Tour

Buke and Gase are more than an experimental duo; they’re inventors. Brooklyn musicians Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez made their instruments–the “toebourine” and “buke,” for example–by hand. Not only that, but their music stretches boundaries farther than we’re used to, all while maintaining a catchy-enough riff to keep us following along on their absurd path. It’s time to get our shoes back on for a hike, because the two have announced both a new single called “Seam Esteem” and a tour around the East Coast, Canada, and Midwest.

According to the press release, they wanted to raise their glass ceiling …

Jessie J, Ariana Grande, And Nicki Minaj Deliver “Bang Bang” Music Video

I don’t know why “Bang Bang” is not already the biggest single at pop radio worldwide, but it certainly deserves to be. Featuring three of the hottest stars in music today, the song features memorable verses, fun production, and a hook that refuses to leave you alone long after the track itself has come to a close. It’s everything most singles wish they could be, and today the song destined to become your new anthem was given its own music video.

If you caught Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj performing together at the VMAs over the …

Cobra Starship 2012

Hear Cobra Starship and Icona Pop Team Up In “Never Been In Love”

It’s been three years since Cobra Starship‘s  last album, Night Shades. Now they’re back and teaming up with radio hit duo Icona Pop for their new single, “Never Been In Love,” which everyone has been talking about, from Pete Wentz to Panic! At The Disco. Prepare yourself, though. It sounds pretty different from their previous works.

The song’s keyboard and chord progression are reminiscent of Fatboy Slim’s “Praise You,” but it still maintains the characteristics that make it a Cobra Starship hit, even with the glossing of Icona Pop. Although considering the band wrote a song about …

Flying Lotus You're Dead!

Listen to Flying Lotus’ New Song “Moment of Hesitation” Feat. Herbie Hancock

Yesterday, Flying Lotus took to the BBC Radio airwaves to offer the first single off his upcoming full-length, You’re Dead!before it drops October 7 via Warp Records. After talking with host Gilles Peterson about creating the album and getting some well-needed sleep, he premiered “Moment of Hesitation.” Not only does it include his beautiful, deep electronic waves, but Herbie Hancock lays down some gorgeous lines and Thundercat drops his usual grade A bass line. Oh, how we’ve missed this sweet, sweet music. Listen to the song after the jump (via Pitchfork).

You’re Dead! is his fifth album …
