Jessie Ware Streams Unreleased Song “12″

On October 21, UK crooner Jessie Ware will share her sophomore album Tough Love via PMR/Island Records. We’ve heard her gorgeous vocals on standout singles “Say You Love Me,” “Kind Of … Sometimes … Maybe,” and the title track, but now we get to hear an unreleased track, “12,” that can be downloaded for free.

The single features Rhye’s Robin Hannibal adding powerful lines to the velvety cut. It’s a shame to see him stripped from the album, although it already boasts a handful of impressive guest singers like Miguel, Ed Sheeran, BenZel, Julio Bashmore, The Invisible’s Dave …

Hear …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead’s New Single “A Million Random Digits”

It’s been a while since we’ve gotten news from rock act …And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead, but the band have been hard at work. Their newest record, IX, drops October 20 (pre-orders ongoing here). To celebrate the upcoming release, they’re streaming single “A Million Random Digits” now on Line of Best Fit.

The song is a quick three minutes with primal drums making way for dark guitar riffs. If they’re saying anything, it’s that they’re coming back with teeth growling, per usual. According to the band, the track title comes from a stolen …


Song Of The Day: Big K.R.I.T. – “Cadillactica”

Holy shit. We have a hit on our hands.

Big K.R.I.T. has been teasing the release of Cadillactica for the majority of 2014, and early this morning we finally learned when that highly-anticipated record will arrive in stores.

Set for a November 11 release, Cadillactica will almost certainly be one of the most discussed hip-hop releases of the year. K.R.I.T. topped many ‘best of’ lists in 2013, so all eyes are on the young emcee to prove his staying power in this incredibly fickle industry. To get fans hyped, the record’s title track has been made available for streaming, and …


Bobby Shmurda Responds To Haters With “Bobby Bitch”

Bobby Shmurda came out of nowhere over the summer and quickly climbed urban music charts with his hit track, “Hot Nigga.” The song rose to popularity so fast that labels and blogs alike quickly hopped on the young emcee’s bandwagon, but after months passed with no follow-up many began to wonder whether or not Bobby could repeat his flash in the pan success.

The jury may still be out on the longevity of Bobby Shmurda’s career, but today the New York native fired back at haters with a new track titled “Bobby Bitch.” The song borrows heavily from …


iLoveMakonnen Continues To Build Buzz With “I Don’t Sell Molly No More”

Up and coming emcee iLoveMakonnen has been the talk of urban music in recent weeks, thanks in part to the success of the track “Tuesday.” Late last night the fast-rising talent made headlines once again by sharing yet another new song, and this one seems destined for radio glory.

There is something beautiful and just a bit strange about rappers who choose to forgo the use of metaphors in order to speak directly with their fans. iLoveMakonnen may not seem like that kind of talent based on his name, but “I Don’t Sell Molly No More” could not be more …

You + Me 2014

You+Me (Dallas Green, P!nk Collaborative Project) Stream Album ‘Rose Ave’

One of 2014′s most surprising new acts, You+Me, are streaming their new album early via iTunes First Play. You can listen to the whole thing here.

This whole project has been massively confusing yet highly enjoyable to me since it was revealed back in September. While I never would have guessed that a member of Alexisonfire would eventually record an album with P!nk, the results are surprisingly great. If you’re a doubter, make sure you check out the album – it might surprise you, too.

The album officially releases Tuesday, October 14 via RCA Records.…

The Acacia Strain Stream “VVorld Demise” From ‘Coma Witch’

We are one week away from the release of The Acacia Strain‘s new album Coma Witch, which will be released through Rise Records on October 14.

After streaming “Cauterizer” and “Nailgun,” the band has dropped another song named “VVorld Demise” that will surely make your ears bleed. With vocalist Vincent Bennett’s growling screams and a guest spot from Incendiary‘s Brendan Garrone, this is another track that shows the growth in The Acacia Strain after the departure of longtime guitarist DL Laskiewicz in 2013.

Check out the song below after the jump and be …

Get Funky and Dance Along To Step Rockets’ Massive “Phantom Flower”

This is a radio hit if I’ve ever heard one and I almost broke my weak-ass office chair just now dancing to it.

If you’re missing summer already, then allow this huge new jam from Step Rockets to warm up your dreary Autumn day. “Phantom Flower” is premiering over at The Wild Honey Pie and fans of Bad Suns, The 1975 and acts of their ilk will melt when they hear this. It’s got a big anthemic vibe, funky ’80s pop elements, infectious hooks and strong, energetic vocals that demand that you stand up and lose yourself to its charm. …


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 …
