ALBUM STREAM: Weezer – ‘Everything Will Be Alright In The End’

With Weezer‘s 9th studio album arriving in just over a week, it seems the guys still have a few surprises. Their latest release, Everything Will Be Alright In The End, has just recently become available for pre-release streaming and urges listeners to forget what they know about the band.

The album dives back into the band’s past experiences including a return to the studio with producer Ric Ocasek, who was on board for Weezer’s iconic Blue and Green albums. Additionally, lead single “Back To The Shack,” touches on the band’s past, making subtle jabs at decisions …

Minus The Bear

Get Acquainted With All of Minus the Bear’s ‘Lost Loves’

Lost Loves is not new. It’s not old. It’s just a collection of songs that have never had a proper recording, or that we didn’t know existed.

Well, finally Minus the Bear have given us this package of glorious songs that were recorded during the sessions of Planet of Ice, Omni, and Infinity Overhead. Having heard “The Lucky Ones” and “Cat Calls & Ill Means,” the band isn’t trying to hide the prior fact.

The album has a strange sense of unity, as the songs aren’t clunky, or obviously recorded at different times. …

Flashback: Stream Fireworks’ Original Demo EP, ‘Can’t Hardly Wait’

We have been spending a lot of time at UTG talking about the origin of bands that dominate headlines today. We have been around for over half a decade at this point, but that’s not quite as long enough to have covered every step of an artist’s career. Many bands had several years of recording and touring experience before UTG came into existence. As a result, we missed the opportunity to showcase these acts when they were young and unknown. We can never get that experience in full, but we recently realized we could stroll through memory lane ever-so-slightly by …

MIXTAPE: Rich Gang – ‘The Tour: Part 1′

Young Thug, Rich Homie Quan, and Birdman have finally released their collaborative mixtape. It’s not exactly what we expected, but it’s guaranteed to keep you bobbing along for many weeks to come.

Released under the guise of the Rich Gang, The Tour: Part One found its way online earlier today following months of blog promotion. The London On Da Track produced effort features twenty brand new tracks with absolutely no guest appearances. Considering the amount of material both Quan and Thugga Thugga have been putting out as of late, the fact there are twenty MORE songs waiting …

Stream Aretha Franklin’s Cover Of “Rolling In The Deep”

No, that headline is not a lie. The greatest living diva is gearing up to release a new album of covers, and earlier today her take on one relatively young diva’s modern classic debuted online.

Few artists have the ability to instill a sense of excitement and fun in your average music fan quite like Aretha, and it’s not all that hard to understand why. For Decades, Aretha Franklin has been a beacon for all that is good and entertaining in the world of music. Even when her health began to fail, Franklin was a rock in the pop community, …

Stars No One Is Lost Single

Stream Stars’ New Dance Single ‘No One Is Lost’

Canadian indie rock group Stars will put out their newest album, No One Is Lost, on October 14 via ATO Records. Today the band have shared the title track off that album to stream.

The single follows in line with what we previously knew, namely that the synthpop group recorded the album in a studio one floor above a discotheque. “No One Is Lost” is much more chipper and celebratory than previous single “From The Night.” We’re betting it’s thanks to that catchy chorus.

The 10-track effort is a soulful, organic, heartfelt release that features collaborations with Owen Pallett and Jessy Lanza. Snaith told Rolling Stone that he wanted to make something for everyone, not just …

Lorde Streams New Single “Yellow Flicker Beat”

Lorde has delivered on the promise that she would share her contribution to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 this week, and yes, it’s pretty much perfect.

“Yellow Flicker Beat” is a song drenched in romance and vengeance, with Lorde riding larger than life production to dizzying heights and back again. “I’m a princess cut from marble,” she sings in the opening lines, “smoother than a storm / And the scars that mark my body / they’re silver and gold.” It’s not exactly a great departure from the material that made Pure Heroine one of the biggest releases of …

Foxygen And Star Power

ALBUM STREAM: Foxygen – ‘…And Star Power’

LA retro pop duo Foxygen will be dropping their sophomore LP, …And Star Power, on October 14 via Jagjaguwar. According to their press release, it’s 82 minutes of “soft rock indulgences, psych-ward folk, cartoon fantasia, D&D doomrock, and paranoid bathroom rompers” and sees help from Wayne Coyne, Bleached, Of Montreal’s Kevin Barnes, and White Fence’s Tim Presley. If you’re wondering what all of that sounds like, now’s your chance. The album is streaming in full starting today.

We’ve already heard the poppy “How Can You Really” and slow spiller “Cosmic Vibrations,” but now we get …

Maroon 5 Release “Animals” Remix Featuring J. Cole

Maroon 5 are riding high on a wave of critical acclaim for their latest album, V, and earlier today they returned to music headlines everywhere with the release of the official remix for “Animals.”

If you have spent any time within earshot of a top 40 radio station within the last month you have no doubt heard “Animals” a time or twelve. It’s the kind of feel good pop track that has helped Maroon 5 make millions over the last decade, with just enough sexuality to make knees weak without upsetting conservatives. The remix features an appearance from J. …

Required Listening: Twin Forks – “Mean” (Taylor Swift Cover)

Chris Carrabba can do no wrong. There may have been a time when you could have convinced me otherwise, but after hearing his latest audio offering I am convinced that the man who also gave us Dashboard Confessional is incapable of falling flat on his face.

Yesterday, September 26, Carrabba and his bandmates in Twin Forks partnered with the team at NoiseTrade to release a free digital EP to help promote the group’s upcoming fall tour dates. The record, which was titled An Introduction To Twin Forks, features three album cuts and one bonus track. The bonus, a cover …
