Bloodhound Gang Share Another New Song, “Dimes”

Since around August, we have steadily been dished out new songs by Bloodhound Gang. First was “Chew Toy,” and then in October, “American Bitches.”

And now, this week, the band gave us “Dimes.”

The song is classic Bloodhound Gang, with potty humor mixed with insults and hip-hop beats to drive the song inside your ears and to your brain, where it stays for the rest of the day. That I can promise. The drum beat is quite monotonous, but it’s fitting for this song. Mix that with lines like “You can’t clap with your dick …

Stream “California Nights” & Fall For Best Coast All Over Again

This may seem hard to believe, but Best Coast have not released an album since 2012. It’s not as if they have been hiding all this time, either. The duo has traveled the world at least once since their last record dropped, including dates at countless festivals around the globe. They also spent a lot of time finding a new sound, which they are now sharing with fans through the new single “California Nights.”

Taken from an album with the same name, which is set for release in early May, “California Nights” is a lush pop rock jam that takes …

Belle Mare Continue to Mesmerize With “Cicada”

Since 2013′s The Boat Of The Fragile Mind EP (which I still regret not picking up a limited cassette of), Brooklyn’s Amelia Bushell and Thomas Servidone, the duo known as Belle Mare, has been a band we’ve kept a careful eye on. Following a Shivers cover from the same year, we’re thrilled to finally have new material from the band to play on repeat.

“Cicada” is a 5-minute epic of dreamy pop a la Beach House which builds into a shoegaze storm of noisy guitars, crashing drums and haunting vocals before fading out and demanding that you hit play …

ALBUM STREAM: of Montreal – ‘Aureate Gloom’

Of Montreal will release their newest full-length, Aureate Gloom, on March 3 through Polyvinyl Records, but as of today, you can stream the entire album over at NPR.org. Check it out and let us know what you think in the replies.

The 10-track effort will act as the group’s first attempt since 2013’s Lousy with Sylvianbriar, and their thirteenth record overall. It was recorded at Texas’ Sonic Ranch, and according to frontman Kevin Barnes, was inspired by the Big Apple.

“I went to New York and just lived out there for two weeks and wrote some …

Stream Ghostface Killah and BADBADNOTGOOD’s New Collaborative Album, ‘Sour Soul’

Ghostface Killah and Toronto jazz-funk trio BADBADNOTGOOD have begun streaming their long-awaited collaborative effort, Sour Soul, four days ahead of its official release date. Get in on the action after the jump.

Produced by Frank Dukes (50 Cent, Lloyd Banks) and featuring a slew of killer guest spots, Sour Soul is out of this world in all the right ways. BBNG’s beats are smooth as silk, and true to form, the Iron Man of rap never hesitates to go straight for the jugular. If you dig it as much as we do, cop a pre-order here

Heems (Ex-Das Racist) Reminisces On A Lost Love In New Single With Help From Dev Hynes

Between all the endlessly enjoyable material released by Das Racist — up until their untimely breakup in 2012 — and his own solo mixtapes released thus far, Himanshu “Heems” Suri never disappoints. To continue the trend, he’ll be releasing his first proper solo effort, cleverly titled Eat Pray Thug, on March 10 via Megaforce.

This new single, featuring Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes, seems to be one of his most personal and sentimental we’ve heard yet. It’s smooth, reflective, and ultimately pretty surprising honestly. Regardless, I can’t get enough. It’s a new side of Heems I can …

Diet Cig Stream Charming New EP, ‘Over Easy’

Today is the first time I’ve ever listened to New Paltz’s Diet Cig, and frankly it kind of bums me out.

The duo’s newest release, Over Easy, is cute and catchy as hell. It’s lovable garage pop, like Sleater-Kinney meets Au Revoir Simone; very Saturday Looks Good To Me-ish. It’s youthful and refreshing and I’m hooked on it.

Buy a digital or limited pink cassette copy over on Diet Cig’s Bandcamp and stream the EP in full below. Get ready to feel like you’re 16 in the ’90s.…

Raleigh Ritchie Releases “The Greatest” New Jam

When he’s not fearlessly leading the Unsullied as Grey Worm in HBO’s Game Of Thrones or playing somewhat of a red herring in Broadchurch, Jacob Anderson is creating soulful jams under the banner of Raleigh Ritchie.

Premiering on Hypetrak earlier this week is his newest single, “The Greatest,” which will be officially released on April 13 via Columbia Records – obviously not on his last EP, Black and Blue Point Two, as originally planned.

Dance and sing along to “The Greatest” below and check out Raleigh Ritchie’s upcoming tour dates to see if he’ll be performing in …

The Young Wild Release New Video For Ultra-Catchy Single, “Not A One”

California’s The Young Wild is an act that was unfortunately not on my radar until very recently. So, needless to say, I’ve been making up for lost time, starting with countless replays of the video for their most recent single, “Not A One.”

Premiering over at Nerdist earlier this week, the video for “Not A One” is ostensibly simple but stylish in all the right ways. Having only come to frution as a band late last year after meticulous planning by singer-songwriter Bryan B. William, it’s impressive that we’re getting material of this caliber from an act so early in …

Daisyhead Release Melodically Moving New Single, “East Bend”

Over the course of the past year or so, Daisyhead have cemented themselves on our radar here at UTG. From their 2014 split with Have Mercy to their well-received Jimmy Eat World cover that was featured on No Sleep’s A Comp For Mom, the band continues to prove their worth in the alternative scene alongside bands like Balance And Composure, Citizen and Basement.

Their most recent effort, The Smallest Light, is shaping up to be a huge step forward for the Nashville quartet, if the singles released so far are any indication to go by. Following “Take

CHON Stream First Single From Sumerian Records Debut, ‘Grow’

I’ll be the first to admit how bummed I am about how late this post is.

However, in typical CHON fashion, the first single from their upcoming full-length, Grow, is an absolute thrill of a listen. Chock full of groove and technical prowess, and devoid of any vocals as per usual, “Story” is CHON at their finest. You can enjoy the new single via nature-based, kaleidoscopic video below.

Grow will be released through the band’s new label home of Sumerian Records on March 23. CD pre-order bundles are available now through a handful of online locations, along with several …
