Jamie Foxx Shares “Pretty Young Thing” (Prod. By DJ Mustard)

Jamie Foxx is a jack of all trades when it comes to the world of entertainment. He sings, he dances, and he acts, though I’m not sure he’s ever successfully mixed all three outside of his performance in Ray, and it appears he will soon have a new album on shelves.

Rumors were persistent throughout 2014 that Foxx had been spending a lot of time working on new material in various recording studios around the globe. No album has surfaced as of yet, nor has any official announcement of one being planned been made, but in recent days a …

Death Cab For Cutie Share Infectious New Single, “The Ghosts of Beverly Drive”

If you weren’t already excited for Death Cab for Cutie’s eighth full-length record, Kintsugi, you certainly will be after today.

Earlier this morning, the Seattle outfit offered fans yet another glimpse of their latest effort in the form of “The Ghosts of Beverly Drive,” a frantic, fast-paced track that hits harder than the band’s previous offerings. Stream it below (via Stereogum), and let us know what you think in the replies.

Kintsugi hits shelves on March 31, and we couldn’t be more stoked. If you haven’t already, you can pre-order the album here.…



“If you’re going to wear a mask, make sure it’s one of your own face.”

Sprawling, progressive and experimental instrumentation mesh with powerfully emotive vocals in EQO‘s newest single, a track from their forthcoming album, entitled Ananta, that we have the privilege of premiering today here at UTG.

“Persona” is a four-and-a-half-minute rock romp, jam-packed with driving guitar riffs, hypnotizing rhythms and perfectly contrasting, dual male/female vocals. The track brings together the best elements of industrial rock — a la Marilyn Manson — with a punk rock attitude-like delivery. It’s the kind of song that should translate perfectly …


Stream Freddie Gibbs’ Surprise EP, ‘Pronto’

Freddie Gibbs made headlines around the globe last year for his genre-bending Pinata album, which was the result of a collaborative effort with Madlib. Those two are partnering again this summer for a series of high-profile festival appearances, but in the meantime Gibbs is focusing on his solo career, including the release of a surprise EP titled Pronto.

Released online late Sunday night, March 8, Freddie Gibbs’ latest solo offering is a three-track collection of new songs that bang hard and offer some of the better rap verses to hit the streets in 2015. It’s nothing too far outside …

UTG PREMIERE: The Wild Young Hearts – “U R”

Los Angeles’ The Wild Young Hearts are poised to release their brand new album, titled Feel Good, on March 31. Today, we’re pleased to have teamed up with the SoCal three-piece to exclusively stream a brand new single from the effort, titled “U R.”

Recorded in Pasadena, CA with producer/engineer Doug Grean (Stone Temple Pilots, Sheryl Crow, The Crystal Method), Feel Good contains 10 tracks of upbeat rock with hints of pop and pop-punk that as a whole almost sounds like a well-produced record from the ’90s.

“U R” brings to mind a unique mixture of Eels and Good …


Sun Kil Moon Stream “Ali/Spinks 2″ from ‘Universal Themes’

Sun Kil Moon has released a new track titled “Ali/Spinks 2,” from his upcoming LP Universal Themes. You may be wondering how long it’s been since Benji released, and the answer is barely over a year, but that hasn’t seemed to bother Sun Kil Moon songwriter Mark Kozelek. Sun Kil Moon’s next LP, Universal Themes, is set to release on June 2.

While new music is on the way, Universal Themes is most certainly not Benji 2.0. With “Ali/Spinks 2,” Sun Kil Moon continue with the stream of consciousness lyricism, though the track is a garage …


Dryjacket Stream “Latchkey”

Earlier this week, New Jersey’s Dryjacket continued to hype their forthcoming EP, Lights, Locks, And Faucets, by unveiling a brand new single titled “Latchkey.”

This April, Dryjacket will be playing a handful of shows alongside Light Years and Bonfires. A full list of dates can additionally be found below.

harms way

ALBUM STREAM: Harm’s Way – ‘Rust’

Chicago hardcore act Harm’s Way have joined forces with Revolver to begin streaming their new album, Rust, almost a full week ahead of its official March 10 release. Give it a listen after the break.

The outfit’s latest offering was recorded at Brick Top Recording by Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos, Dead In The Dirt), mixed at God City Studios by Kurt Ballou (Converge, High On Fire), and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Obituary, Nails), resulting in a 10-track beatdown that is sure to leave listeners blissful and bludgeoned. If you’re a fan, you …

After their hiatus, reunion, and lineup change, Thee Oh Sees are back with a brand new album. The new record, titled Mutilator Defeated At Last, drops May 18 via Castle Face. It serves as the follow-up to last year’s DropThat being said, some things are different, namely the lineup: John Dwyer, Tim Hellman, Nick Murray, Chris Woodhouse, and Brigid Dawson. See the full nine-song tracklist after the jump.

Ryley Walker

Hear Ryley Walker’s Incredible New Single “Sweet Satisfaction”

There’s something about handpicked guitar playing that never gets old, and Ryley Walker does a great job reminding us of how timeless it can be. The folk singer-songwriter drops his new album Primrose Green on March 31 via Dead Oceans. Pre-orders are ongoing here. In anticipation, he’s shared single “Sweet Satisfaction” to detail what we can expect on the release and it’s nothing short of intricate.

Ryley Walker’s ecstatic fingerpicking is what lures you into his songs, but his cool film of 1970s fog that sets over it will keep you around long after they’ve ended. “Sweet Satisfaction” sees …

Around Town Collective Artists Cover Each Other on New Compilation (Stream)

California DIY label Around Town Collective has been putting out killer releases in Northern California (Redding/Chico area) since 2007. We’ve raved about their work before, but now they’ve done something new in releasing a 9-track compilation, titled Dinner Conversations, on which ATC artists cover each other. The release features covers of Boy Elephant, Thomas Fogg, Belda Beast, Andrew Campbell and more, performed by Baltic Girls, Zach Zeller, Fera and P.A. Harper, just to name a few.

On the Bandcamp page for the release (where you can download it with a ‘name your price’ option), the label shares: …

Oh Wonder

Oh Wonder Share Serene New Single, “Technicolour Beat”

Oh Wonder will release their debut album later this year, and from all indications, they will be doing so on their own terms. Rather than opting for a run-of-the-mill release, the outfit will instead be sharing a new song every month for a year, until every one of the record’s twelve tracks are available online.

For those of you unfamiliar with the London-based duo, I assure you that this is very good news. The group’s growing catalogue is catchy, coy, and as smooth as your father’s favorite whiskey, built around pulsing bass and lush, cascading melodies.

Earlier today, the band …
