Vanities Band 2014 Dead Beats EP

UTG Premiere: Vanities – ‘Dead Beats’ EP

Just a year after bursting onto the hardcore scene with their incredible debut, New England’s Vanities are back with a killer new record that might be your favorite heavy release of the fall.

The world of heavy music has become incredibly underwhelming in recent years, at least on the side of things that caters to younger audiences. The vast majority of bands making it in the quote/unquote ‘alternative’ scene have all become clones of one another, ripping off whatever new idea is popular this year in order to cash in long enough to book another nationwide tour. Still, in the …

FREE MP3: Bobby Shmurda – “Hot N*gga” (Boombox Cartel Remix)

The hottest song of the summer has just received a killer remix from one of the hottest production duos in music today.

The word is still out on whether or not Bobby Shmurda has the talent needed to establish a lasting presence in hip-hop, but for the time being “Hot Nigga” is keeping him on the tip of every industry exec’s tongue. He’s the up and comer to beat right now, even though he only has one song that anyone cares about. You may even think that song has started to grow stale, but after hearing the Boombox

Hear Three New Ryan Adams Songs

Earlier this year, country rock demi-god Ryan Adams put out his first self-titled, a great look at his timeless vocals and lyrics, as well as 1984, his 10-song punk record released on a 7-inch. Today we get to hear three songs that are also a part of that PAX-AM 7-inch singles series: “Jacksonville,” “I Keep Running,” and “Walkedypants.”

The 7-inch A-side highlights “Jacksonville,” whereas the B-side features the rustic “I Keep Running” and somewhat decent “Walkedypants.” The songs take a nice stroll through his country, blues, and folk roots and tally up to be ten minutes long in …

Yelawolf Streams “Till It’s Gone”

If you’re a fan of the FX series Sons Of Anarchy you may have noticed a driving, clap laden track playing in the background of the most recent episode. That tracks turns out to be the latest single from Yelawolf, and this morning the southern bred rapper posted the studio cut of that same track online.

“Till It’s Gone” continues Yelawolf’s long-running tradition of delivering deep lyrics while keeping the entertainment factor high throughout. It’s a track that becomes more and more interesting as it plays out, with a subtle sense of rage lying in wait underneath every bar. …

French Montana Streams “Suicide”

French Montana has been relatively quiet on the music front recently, but today that changed as the New York emcee delivered a solo cut that may surprise some haters.

I will forever be the first person to admit that French Montana does not have the best track record with solo material. His mixtape game was strong back in the day, but since Meek went mainstream and became the type of rapper mentioned as much for his relationships as music, something began to change. He became a gimmick, with his best work being whatever was delivered in guest appearances.

All that …

Tove Lo Streams New Singles “Timebomb” and “Moments”

Rising pop singer Tove Lo will drop her debut album, Queen Of The Clouds, on September 30. Way back in March, she shared a video for “Habits,” but now as the release draws nearer, she’s releasing more singles in anticipation. This time we get a better glimpse with “Timebomb” and “Moments.”

Lo’s glossy electro-pop and emotionally barring lyrics go full force on both numbers. “Timebomb” sees Tove Lo tackling sex in a bass-stomping number that rolls around with quite a bit of speedy and loose vocals. “Moments,” on the other hand, takes its time, showing a less …

Mercy Street (ex-Rufio) Stream New Jam, “Out Of The Question”

We miss Rufio, plain and simple. That fact won’t change. Luckily, though, vocalist/guitarist Scott Sellers has been working with his new project Mercy Street for at least a couple of years now, and when you have a voice as distinctive as his within a genre, your future endeavors are almost certain to sound similar if you play a style analogous to the ones you did in the past. Mercy Street definitely have their own flair but the trademark Rufio core is definitely front and center.

Fast-paced guitars and drums rip through the group’s new two-and-a-half-minute track entitled “Out of the …

Required Listening: Florida Georgia Line – “Sun Daze”

Having spent the past few weeks dominating country charts with the power ballad “Dirt,” Florida Georgia Line are back in music headlines this morning with the release of a new song titled “Sun Daze.”

There are a few things you can expect to find in almost every song by Florida Georgia Line. References to having a good time is the most common, but partying, working hard, driving around, and knowing how to be yourself no matter what are not far behind. “Sun Daze” brings all these elements together, as well as the group’s love for …
