Lana Del Rey Seeks Privacy In “High By The Beach” Video

The queen is back, everyone. Go ahead and forget about those young pop star wannabes because Lana is back and ready to take her place atop the mainstream music throne.

Just days after finding herself wrapped up in the immediate viral success of her new single “High By The Beach,” Lana Del Rey has returned to global headlines with the song’s official video. The clip, which was shot on a yacht somewhere in the middle of the ocean, finds LDR doing her best to lay low from pesky paparazzi. Her efforts ultimately do not pay off, but that’s …

SINGLE REVIEW: Lana Del Rey – “High By The Beach”

Artist: Lana Del Rey
Track: “High By The Beach”
Album: Honeymoon

A year after Ultraviolence took her cinematic aesthetic to its creative extreme, Lana Del Rey has cut loose with a hazy new single fans old and new will be talking about for months to come.

“High By The Beach” is the second song from Lana Del Rey’s upcoming album to arrive online. It follows the release of the title track, “Honeymoon,” which proved to be an extension of the cinematic vibes found on Ultraviolence, only delivered with a ever so slightly brighter disposition. I thought the song was …

UTG PREMIERE: Side Saddle – “Legs For Days”

Following “The Romance in Disappearing“–the lead single from their forthcoming EP, Young Professional–UTG is thrilled to once again team up with New York’s Side Saddle to premiere the second single from the new effort, set to release on July 20 via Cedar Lodge Records.

“Legs For Days” is a beautiful folk-rock cut that builds in multiple parts over the course of four and a half minutes–each a fuller, more engrossing arrangement of textures and instrumentation than the last.

In regards to the impetus for the song’s creation, frontman Ian McGuinness tells us, “‘Legs for Days’ was a …

Well Kept Things Stream New Song, Launch Vinyl Pre-Orders

New York’s Well Kept Things are the latest members of the Antique Records family. Their debut EP, Homegrown, is set for release on June 16, 2015.

Today, Well Kept Things partnered with our pals at PropertyOfZack to share a finished version of “Great White North,” which is a song some of you may recall hearing as a rough demo in the middle of 2014. It was actually that demo that led Antique to take an initial interest in Well Kept Things, so it only makes sense that the band introduce themselves to the world at large using the same …

UTG PREMIERE: Mariage Blanc – “We’ve Got Time”

As one of our ‘9 Artists To Watch in 2015,’ it’s fair to assume we’ve been anxiously awaiting any and all new material from Mariage Blanc and their forthcoming release, No Autobiography. Following a stream of the album’s opener and lead single “Blue Eyes” just last month, we’re thrilled to be able to team up with the four-piece to premiere another cut from their upcoming effort before its release on April 7.

“We’ve Got Time” is No Autobiography‘s penultimate offering, and while the whole of the release is wont to de-stress the listener, this …

Modest Mouse Share New Track, “The Ground Walks, With Time in a Box”

Modest Mouse are pumping out songs left and right in anticipation of their new album Strangers To Ourselves, with “Lampshades On Fire,” “Coyotes,” and “The Best Room” already out for streaming. Today, the band has shared yet another song with the music world, and for me, this could be my favorite one I have heard so far. It’s gotten me more amped for this release.

The name of the track is “The Ground Walks, With Time in a Box” and has a rhythmic, funk beat that the band has been known to utilize …

Passion Pit Announce New Album ‘Kindred,’ Stream “Lifted Up (1985)”

Passion Pit have been awful quiet since the release of their commercially successful sophomore album Gossamer, which was released back in 2012. That silence has now been broken as Michael Angelakos and co. have revealed the details for their third album.

The album is titled Kindred, has a release date set for April 21, and will be released through Columbia. Coinciding with the album announcement is the stream of the album’s lead single and opener, called “Lifted Up (1985),” which is a fun and catchy tune that will have fans craving more Kindred as the album draws nearer.…

Here’s Why It’s Okay To Think That Fall Out Boy Song Isn’t All That Great

This James Shotwell-opposing diss track began as a joke and gradually got a little heated. I was heckling him about his swooning over Fall Out Boy’s newly-released “Fourth Of July.” He gave me the title and suggested I write an anti-piece based on things I said. So here I am, probably more scathing and critical (and nonsensical) than I truly intend to be. Regardless, shots fired.

I’m not opposed to change. At all. In fact, I encourage and often embrace it. For the sake of this article, in terms of music, I’ll throw out recent examples like Pianos Become The …

Here’s Why Fall Out Boy’s “Fourth Of July” Is The First Great Song Of 2015

We’re essentially halfway into the first month of 2015 at this point, and I think it’s fair to say there have not been many game-changing singles or albums released just yet. Not that we should expect such, of course, but aside from Kanye surprising everyone while they were busy celebrating the new year not a lot of recently released music has been given much hype. Maybe it’s because everyone has been too busy getting back into the flow of work and school to pay much attention to the music being shared, or maybe – just maybe – the world has …

Purity Ring “Begin Again” In ‘Another Eternity’

In what’s perhaps the most nonchalant album campaign we’ve experienced in some time, Canada’s dream-pop duo Purity Ring have already unveiled two tracks from their upcoming full-length release. Due out March 3 via 4AD (worldwide) and Last Gang Records (Canada), Another Eternity will serve as the followup to 2012’s incredible debut, Shrines.

Following a stream of “Push Pull” back in December, the two-piece have revealed “Begin Again,” a track that feels a tad more in line with the style found on Shrines, although both singles are strong downtempo, synth-pop offerings that have grown on us tremendously. …

Faith No More Release New Song; Their First In 17 Years

Classic alternative band Faith No More have been speculated to release new music ever since their reformation back in 2009. After spotty tours and keeping fans buzzing about their status, the band has finally released their first official recording in 17 years.

The pre-grungers released a new song titled “Motherfucker,” which will come off their untitled eighth studio album, slated for release in April 2015 via Reclamation Recordings/Ipecac Recordings. The song shows the band’s anthology of past records all stewed into one masterpiece that proves the band is picking up right where they left off since coming off hiatus. Here …

Front Porch Step Releases Cover of “I’ll Be Home For Christmas”

It may be a little early for the holiday spirit but not in Front Porch Step‘s case. After releasing his forthcoming effort’s title track in “Whole Again,” mastermind Jake Mcelfresh has released his version of the classic Christmas song, “I’ll Be Home For Christmas.”

The song itself is always a staple in Christmas playlists all around the world and Mcelfresh clearly nails it with his version. “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” comes off his upcoming EP, titled Whole Again, which will be released on December 2 via Pure Noise Records.
