Stream Meatbodies’ Debut Album

Over the last few years, Chad Ubovich played as a member of Ty Segall and Mikal Cronin’s respective backing bands. Now, he’s finally getting the center spotlight. Ubovich is teaming up with Cory Hanson of Wand and Erik Jimenez of Together Pangea as Meatbodies, a new punk rock act that touches on psych and garage rock in all the right places. It drops October 14 via In The Red, but for now the album is streaming in full over at NPR.

Meatbodies is exactly what we’ve come to expect after hearing singles “Disorder” and “Tremmors

Helen Earth Band

UTG PREMIERE: Helen Earth Band – “Castaway”

Helen Earth Band could have been a band’s band. You know the type – musically-proficient with off-kilter tunes, primed for validation via other musicians while casual listeners missed the point. But We Fucking Quit, their second full-length, resonates wider than that. Helen Earth Band’s Braidtastic brand packs the punch that’ll win over general audiences while keeping musicians wide-eyed in amazement. It’s mathy, it’s catchy, and it’s just damn good.

We’re thrilled to premiere “Castaway” from their upcoming LP, due October 21 from Youth Conspiracy Records. Once you swallow that goodness, grab a digital pre-order (vinyl’s scheduled for 2015). The …

No Machine 2014

Stream No Machine’s Debut EP, ‘Volume One’

No Machine (Billy Rymer of The Dillinger Escape Plan, Michael Sadis of NK, and Isaac Boliver of Happy Body Slow Brain) have begun streaming their blistering debut EP, Volume One, in full. Check it out after the break, and let us know what you think in the replies.

Loud and relentless, Volume One hit the internet earlier today via Lambgoat, and after listening to it a few times now, I’m fairly convinced that it may be the most pissed-off release of 2014 (Sorry, Blissfucker). If you’re a fan, you can download it for free …


No Devotion Share “10,000 Summers”

One of the biggest stories this year has been the creation of No Devotion, which is Geoff Rickly of Thursday and the remaining ex-members of Lostprophets. The band has already shared a few tracks with us including its lead single, “Stay.”

Now the band gives us another single called “10,000 Summers” and it has a similar feel, with the 80s punk, new wave vibe. It’s very anthemic like, and very nostalgic.

The band will release the 7″ of “10,000 Summers” on October 27 via Rickly’s own label, Collect Records. Their first show will be the next day, …

Watch tUnE-yArDs Battle Colorful Mannequins in “Real Thing” Video

Freak folk has a new queen, and she’s still ruling the world months after her latest release. Merill Garbus, aka tUnE-yArDs, has just shared a new video for “Real Thing” off of this year’s LP Nikki Nack via NPR. In a press release, Garbus said the following:

I believe “Real Thing” was the one song I didn’t want to make a video for. It has too many images of its own in the lyrics, and could mean so many different things for different listeners… I love leaving room for audiences to paint their own mental pictures. What changed my

The outfit has also begun streaming a new track titled “Disjointed.” Both beautiful and commanding, this coy single was first teased back …


Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness Streams Debut Album

After weeks of promotion and song premieres, Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness has begun streaming his debut album.

Some may be quick to write off Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness as another project in the same vein as Jack’s Mannequin or Something Corporate, but that is an oversimplification of the creative genius that is Andrew McMahon. Every time he starts a new project it’s because he feels pulled in a new creative direction, and Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness is no different. The songs are bigger, fuller, and at times far more pop friendly than ever before. It’s not something …

Stars No One Is Lost Single

ALBUM STREAM: Stars – ‘No One Is Lost’

In one week, Canadian indie rock outfit Stars will drop their newest LP, No One Is Lost. We’ve heard a slew of singles like “No One Is Lost” and “From The Night” (which got a joyous music video) so far, but now the whole album is streaming in full on NPR.

No One Is Lost was recorded above a discotheque and, as such, has taken on a lot of fun, throbbing beats that were unavoidably influential. It’s their danciest album to date. According to the group, the record “prioritizes lightness and bittersweet uplift over the devastation …


Stream Greylag’s Excellent Debut Album in Full

On October 14, Portland folk rock trio Greylag drop their debut self-titled LP on Dead Oceans. We’ve been eyeing the release with hungry hearts, completely devouring what we’ve heard so far, so it’s with happiness that it’s time to announce their album is streaming in full here.

Deep underneath their acoustic strumming and boot-stomping beats is heartfelt songwriting that’s seen more revisions than a dozen hands can count. The three men craft songs that lay comfortably between Band of Horses and Fleet Foxes on songs like “Yours to Shake” and “Another.” Thanks to help from …

Alex G

Stream Aleg G’s New Single “Hollow”

There are some genres so flooded with artists that it’s hard to decide what actually stands out from the rest. This year, the sappy singer-songwriter trope has been given a diamond in the pile and there’s no denying he’s as talented as he sounds. Pennsylvania native Alex Giannascoli, or better known as Alex G, pens that wobbling acoustic melody that makes you struggle to realize what’s the bigger emotion inside of you: nostalgic happiness or despondent sadness. He knows what he’s doing, and if he keeps it up, he could be this generation’s Elliott Smith.

The 21-year-old is still attending …
