Night Terrors Of 1927 Debut Music Video For “Always Take You Back”

Night Terrors of 1927 have been quite active since their inception in 2013, primarily with releasing EPs in Guilty Pleas and Anything To Anyone. A big day has arrived for the duo, consisting of members Jarrod Gorbel and Blake Sennett, from bands The Honorary Title and Rilo Kiley, respectively, as they have officially and unexpectedly released their debut album, Everything’s Coming Up Roses, today.

To coincide with the release, the band have unveiled an official music video for the song “Always Take You Back,” which was released back in August. The video is very complex, showing the duo …

Watch ‘He Took His Skin Off For Me’ And Have Your Life Changed

We don’t feature nearly enough short films on UTG, but when we see one that really throws us for a loop we cannot help creating a post.

Ben Aston spent two years trying to make his latest short, He Took His Skin Off For Me, and along the way he recruited the help of over 250 backers through use of Kickstarter. The story he decided to tell is one that defies genre classification, though I think the description of a ‘fractured fairytale’ wouldn’t be too far off the mark. It’s a practical SFX filled, CGI-free tale of love and …

Blacklisted-2014

STREAM: Blacklisted – “Burnt Palms”

Philadelphia’s Blacklisted is one of the most important hardcore bands in recent memory. Some may read that statement as hyperbole, but the band continuously dares to reinvent themselves, putting out one emotionally-excruciating record after the next, all of which having their own unique qualities. Today, Blacklisted released another song off their new record, When People Grow, People Go, titled “Burnt Palms.” The song is more reminiscent of some of their older material, specifically Heavier than Heaven Lonelier Than God-era Blacklisted, while still adding a new spin to the sound. The song is searing, mean, and is the kind …

STREAM: The Districts – “Peaches”

The Pennsylvania music scene is one of the best around, and continuously shows that it’s home to bands who release great music. Today, blues-infused Americana band The Districts released a new song, “Peaches,” which comes off of their upcoming full-length, A Flourish and a Spoil. The song has very raw production, but still manages to sound huge, sweeping, and incredibly catchy. “Peaches” starts off soft, but then swells into a wall of sound.

Having recently seen The Districts at their “secret” show in Philadelphia with mewithoutYou, UTG can confirm that while their studio music is great, to truly appreciate their …

Fall Out Boy Stream New Song, “Uma Thurman”

Fall Out Boy will be releasing American Beauty/American Psycho on January 20 and have been streaming new tracks on what seems to be a weekly basis.

With the release date a week away, we get at least one more glimpse into the album with “Uma Thurman.” Obviously named after the famous actress, the song itself is musically in the same highly-produced vicinity as the other singles we’ve experienced so far. Content wise, the band went down the avenue of using pop culture to tie in with the track, including a spin-off of the glorious theme song for The Munsters and …

Make Do And Mend Share New Track, “Each Of Us”

After announcing details for their long-awaited followup to 2012′s Everything You Have Ever Loved, Make Do And Mend caught fans by surprise by announcing their new album Don’t Be Long, which will be released on February 24 via Stay Close, their own imprint on Rise Records. Coinciding with the announcement, they also streamed the title track for a glimpse into the album.

Today, the band teamed up with BrooklynVegan to debut another song off the upcoming release, called “Each Of Us.” The song has more of a punk vibe to it than “Don’t Be Long” and it’s only …

John Carpenter Streams “Night” From ‘Lost Themes’

The Master Of Horror and creator of some of the best films ever to grace our screens (Halloween, The Thing, Big Trouble In Little China) is set to release an album, titled Lost Themes, on February 3 via Sacred Bones Records. We’ve already heard and worn out the first single, “Vortex,” and now we’ve been given another taste of the 9-track release with “Night.”

More brooding, toned-down and seemingly simple-structured than “Vortex,” the newest synthy single to surface from John Carpenter’s upcoming effort is also the album’s closing number and would serve as …

Kelly Clarkson’s New Song Sounds A Little Like Jimmy Eat World

We have encountered a number of similarities in songs over the last few years. The most recent one that comes to mind being a debate over One Direction‘s “Steal My Girl” and its uncanny resemblance to the piano intro in New Found Glory‘s Coming Home single “It’s Not Your Fault.” Today, the first similarity of 2015 was discovered, and it brings together two acts you would never expect to see mentioned in the same sentence: Kelly Clarkson and Jimmy Eat World.

Let me explain: Earlier this afternoon, Kelly Clarkson surprised fans with the release of a new …

SLEATER-KINNEY-600x396

Stream Sleater-Kinney’s New Album, ‘No Cities To Love’

No Cities To Love is the fresh, new full-length album from rock and roll trio, Sleater-Kinney. Scheduled for a January 20 release, the ten-track offering is a result of steadfast efforts of the trio to make a record only when they felt like the timing, along with everything else in their lives, was right. They took their time, alright. No Cities To Love serves as the successor to their last record, The Woods, which was released all the way back in 2005, a few months before they announced their ten-year-long hiatus.

The new record is very resonant of …

Young Thug And Rich Homie Quan Collaborate On “In The Game”

I’m starting to believe we’re not allowed to move from one week to the next unless Rich Homie Quan and/or Young Thug share new material. The two Atlanta natives, both of whom have been on the radar of every urban music writer for well over a year, have continued their long-running streak of sharing new material by dropping a collaborative effort titled “In The Game.”

You know how this works by now: Thugga Thugga and Rich Homie Quan seem to spend every minute of free time working on new material, and with each passing week one or three tracks find …

Chains Stream Debut EP, ‘The Sorrow, The Sadness’

A few weeks back, Set Your Goals’ vocalist Matt Wilson took to social media to update fans as to the uncertain future of the beloved pop punk outfit. In doing so, the frontman additionally alerted followers to his latest undertaking, Chains.

“I have always had ideas that wouldn’t quite work for SYG; either the lyrics were too dark or the parts were too aggressive. Chains is an outlet for that,” Wilson explained via Facebook, adding that his current project is more in line with the music he grew up listening to.

Now, a week ahead of their first …

Ty Segall Mr Face

Ty Segall Announces New ‘Mr Face’ EP, Shares Title Track

The man who never stops making music is once again making new music. Garage rock god Ty Segall is back with a new EP titled Mr Face that serves as a follow-up to last year’s excellent Manipulator. The gatefold boule 7″ EP drops January 13 via Famous Class. Pre-orders are ongoing here.

In anticipation, Segall has shared the title track from the EP on Bandcamp. It’s an acoustic ditty that would work well for any roadtrip through the desert, kicking up dirt clouds on the skirt of Los Angeles. Don’t worry about it being too chill. Segall …
