Bonfire

UTG VIDEO PREMIERE: Bonfire – “Before You Left”

Bonfire are a four piece post hardcore outfit based out of Saskatoon, Canada. They just released a short split with fellow Canadian singer/songwriter New Born. Bonfire’s contribution is the emotion-inducing single “Before You Left.” We are happy to have teamed up with the band to premiere the music video for this song. You can check it out below the jump.

“Before You Left” isn’t your typical music video, as it’s a conglomerate of year’s worth of home videos stitched together. It provides a hint of nostalgia for anyone who is familiar with the shaky, often pixelated, home videos from …

LISTEN: The Felix Culpa – “Karma City”

It has been a long wait for new tunes from the much loved and much missed The Felix Culpa. But, today, fans are able to finally surround themselves in new sounds from the band in the form of new song “Karma City.”

“Karma City” is a catalyst of a track, bringing some of the dirtiest tones the band has used to date. Covered with a sludgy bass, heavy guitars, tight grooves, and the perfect balance between pop and drone vocals, “Karma City” is a welcomed return for the band.

The track comes from an upcoming split with Foreign Tongues via …

REQUIRED LISTENING: Ovlov – “The Great Crocodile”

Back in April, we got word that CT-based band Ovlov and Philly crew Little Big League were putting out a split 7″ together on Tiny Engines. It comes out in August, but today both bands shared songs off the split over at Stereogum because, let’s be honest, there’s no way our anticipation until then wouldn’t drive us insane.

Ovlov’s track, titled “The Great Crocodile,” is a play on their last album’s closer, “The Great Alligator.” It’s a sprawling beast clocking in around six minutes, which means we get time for thick solos, noisy feedback, and some emotional lyrics that will …
