You can find out more about the band and their forthcoming release here. We also premiered the track “Cheap Talk” from the band last month. You can check that out right now by heading over here.…

Frameworks 2014

ALBUM STREAM: Frameworks – ‘Loom’

“Genre-bending” is a term that I don’t throw around often, especially when talking hardcore, but in the case of Gainesville, Florida’s Frameworks, few other descriptions do them justice. Over the past few months the group has been able to showcase their unique sound by previewing several stellar tracks off their debut full-length, Loom, but as of today, fans can finally enjoy the release in its entirety. Give it a spin by heading over to Stereogum.

The band will be touring in support of the release throughout the end of May; a full list of dates can be …

Wye Oak Shriek

ALBUM STREAM: Wye Oak – ‘Shriek’

We’ve been anxiously awaiting Wye Oak‘s new album, Shriekfor what feels like forever. But alas, finally, finally, it’s (almost) here. NPR has the album up for streaming in full a week before it comes out April 29 via Merge/City Slang, so go ahead and give it a listen.

Shriek is the Baltimore duo’s follow up to 2011′s Civilian. Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack’s new album was co-produced by Nicolas Vernhes at Brooklyn’s Rare Book Room and is, ambitiously, guitar-less. If none of that wins you over, go see them play the material live (where $2 of …


UTG PREMIERE: Tilian – “Future Friends”

You might associate Tilian Pearson with any number of bands from the last few years, but the singer’s solo project may have the most potential. With 2013′s Material Me, the vocalist leapt headfirst into electronic-infused pop, exploring all sorts of soundscapes far outside his previous material but immediately natural to his range.

While Dance Gavin Dance is busy headlining their ‘Acceptance Speech Tour,’ we’re pleased as punch to premiere a new happy tune from Tilian’s solo library. Enjoy “Future Friends” below, grab it on iTunes, catch Tilian on tour with DGD, and get excited for Pearson’s future solo …


The Dan Auerbach Mix Of Lana Del Rey’s “West Coast” May Be Better Than The Original

If you’re anything like me then you have only recently managed to catch the breath that was stolen from you during the lush and entrancing debut of Lana Del Rey‘s new single (“West Coast“) last week. It had all the hazy vibes of pseudo-reality you have come to expect from the soulful vocalist, with a splash of guitar fuzz and pure California sunshine strong enough to hook even the coldest soul. Nothing too outside LDR’s wheelhouse, but a definite step towards something different than what was found on her debut.

This morning, Ultraviolence producer Dan Auerbach (who …


Machine Gun Kelly Celebrates His Birthday, Shares New Track

Cleveland native Machine Gun Kelly has spent the better part of the last year on the road, but somewhere between crossing state lines and hopping flights he has found time to lay the groundwork for what will eventually lead to his sophomore album. He’s kept quiet as to when fans can expect new tracks, but this morning he surprised fans everywhere by marking his 24th birthday with the release of a new track titled “Sail.”

Built on a slow, pulsing beat that hints at the aggressive delivery MGK brings to almost every track, “Sail” is dubbed by the man himself …


Fall In Love With Conor Oberst All Over Again With The B-Side “Fast Friends”

Record Store Day was this past weekend, and Bright Eyes’ mastermind Conor Oberst was behind one of the most sought after 7″ releases. I managed to snag a copy, but only hitting up a second store because my vinyl loving heart felt there was a hole that needed to be filled even though I had already spent $89. It was worth it, however, because the song this post centers around is now a part of my personal collection.

That blurb wasn’t meant to brag or boast, though it may read that way. I’m simply trying to find the best way …


Taylor Bennett Makes A Good Argument For Being Your New Favorite Artist With “Hope”

We have spoken about Chicago rapper Taylor Bennett in the past, but he’s still unknown to a large portion of our readership. He’s the brother of Chance The Rapper, but more importantly he has a gift of wordplay and style entirely his own that is showcased perfectly on his new track “Hope.”

Backed by speaker-rattling production from Monte Booker that is as interesting as the lyrics it accompanies, “Hope” finds Taylor returning to the spotlight with a quick-tongued highlight from his upcoming Mainstream Music mixtape. He touches on everything from his love of the mainstream, to his goals in the …

ALBUM STREAM: Brody Dalle – ‘Diploid Love’

Brody Dalle’s debut solo album, Diploid Love, is set to hit shelves next Tuesday (April 29), but if you’re eager to hear what the former Distillers vocalist has been up to lately, you’re in luck. As of today, you can stream the entire LP through NPR.

The nine-track effort was produced by Alain Johannes (Arctic Monkeys, Them Crooked Vultures), and features collaborations with Nick Valensi (The Strokes), Emily Kokal (Warpaint), Shirley Manson (Garbage), and Michael Schuman (Queens of the Stone Age). When Time Out Melbourne recently asked Dalle what inspired …


STREAM: Brigades – “Traditions”

Last week, South Carolina’s Brigades debuted a lyric video for “Glass Casket,” which will appear on their upcoming Pure Noise Records release, Crocodile Tears. If that track showcased the post-hardcore group’s potential, then “Traditions,” released this morning on AbsolutePunk, cements them as one of the genre’s most exciting young bands. The fiery new song is streaming after the break.

Crocodile Tears will be officially released on May 6, and it is available for pre-order on CD and three vinyl variants over at MerchNow.

The intensity on display in “Traditions” should pique your interest about Brigades’ live show. …


Required Listening: Circa Survive – “Scentless Apprentice” (Nirvana Cover)

It’s Record Store Day! We hope those of you who were able to shop this morning got out and did your part to celebrate and support the industry we’ve dedicated our lives to covering, but even if you left as soon as you woke up today there is a good chance you came home with a few items missing from your RSD wish list. We cannot help you acquire those records, but we can help you experience some of the music you may be missing.

Circa Survive were one of a dozen artists chosen to cover a song off Nirvana


Let The Analog Affair Kickstart Your Weekend With “Take Me Home”

The digital age is a crazy cool time for music for a number of reasons, including the ability for musicians separated by hundreds, if not thousands of miles to collaborate on projects that the entire world can enjoy. This is one of those projects.

Evan Baker and Cody Moser are the two creative minds behind The Analog Affair, a fast-rising electronic outfit with a wide range of influences from the worlds of rock and pop. Their sound brings to mind the kind of cutesy indie meets summertime electronica fodder you would expect Pitchfork to flip over, with a subtle sentimentality …
