Dikembe Stream New EP, ‘Ledge’

Gainesville, Florida’s Dikembe have partnered with Absolutepunk to begin streaming their highly anticipated new EP, Ledge.

A follow-up to last year’s Mediumship, the foursome’s latest offering is all at once expansive and reserved, drawing its staying power from calculated compositions and slow-building instrumentation. If you dig it, you can pick up your own copy here.

Stream Ledge below, and let us know if you’re a fan in the comments section.…

Shura Provides 7 Minutes in Heaven With “White Light”

Shura‘s singles have been dominating my playlists as of late and I never hesitate to add more. Following the beautifully infectious “2Shy,” the London pop songstress is back with a 7-minute dance epic that echoes her previous works with catchy choruses and undeniable ’80s influence.

“White Light” will make you move, and even at double the length of most of Shura’s tracks, you’ll probably be hitting play again as soon as it ends. It boasts a lot of airy atmosphere, Shura’s perfectly fitting vocal delivery, and some funky backing bass lines.

There doesn’t appear to be word …

Stray From The Path Announce ‘Subliminal Criminals,’ Stream Lead Single

Stray From The Path have given fans their first taste of the future in the form of “Outbreak,” a seething new single that will appear on the group’s impending full-length, Subliminal Criminals. Check it out after the break, and let us know what you think in the comments section below.

“The song is about the health industry, and how illness is a business,” said guitarist Tom Williams. “Every year there’s a new disease to be afraid of, more money to be made off of cancer treatments, and more prescriptions written.”

Subliminal Criminals is set to arrive on August 14 …

New Music: Eminem – “Phenomenal”

Today is a good day. Why? It’s simple: Eminem‘s contribution to the Southpaw soundtrack, “Phenomenal,” is finally here.

Having been teased through a series of short clips that found their way online earlier in the year, “Phenomenal” is the latest in a string of single releases from the Detroit native that have come from places other than a new LP. There is a bit of sadness in that fact, as it has been nearly two years since Em’s last studio album, but thankfully “Phenomenal” is a track that earns its promising title.

Both inspiring and typically dark, “Phenomenal” is …

New Music: Meek Mill – “Check”

Rick Ross tried to tell us #MeekSeason was coming, but we didn’t know it would be here so soon.

Tonight, June 1, Meek Mill debuted a new track titled “Check.” Featuring production from Metro Boomin and Southside, the song features Mill going in with bar after bar about money, women, and the hustle you need to have in order to make that money other rappers only claim to possess. Cosmic Kev premiered the song at 8PM EST, and within minutes a studio quality recording hit the net. You can stream the track below.

It’s unclear whether or not “Check” …

UTG PREMIERE: Attalus – ‘Into The Sea’

We recently wrote about Raleigh, NC’s Attalus, in which we raved a bit about their forthcoming album, Into The Sea. Set to release tomorrow, June 2, via Facedown Records, Attalus’ newest effort is a welcomed change of pace for the label and a monumental stride, not only for the band, but for rock music and its various sub-genres.

A 16-track concept epic, Into The Sea, as mentioned in our previous piece, should both appease and excite fans of The Receiving End Of Sirens, Emery, Thrice, and The Dear Hunter with meticulously layered instrumentation, dynamic vocals, unique storytelling …

UTG PREMIERE: No Tide – “Daylight Savings”

There was a time in my life when I thought I had outgrown pop punk music. I don’t know if I could pinpoint the exact day or month that thought first crossed my mind, but it occurred to me not long after graduating college and (attempting to) immerse myself in the so-called real world. For the first time in my life, the anthems of friendships, road trips, and living in the moment no longer rang as true as they once did. I had real problems, like unemployment and growing debt, neither of which were topics often found in the material …

Pop Evil Premiere “Footsteps”

Update #1: Footage of Pop Evil performing “Footsteps” live for the first time ever has also appeared online. That footage, as well as the official song stream, can be found at the end of this post.

Original post: Michigan hard rock juggernaut Pop Evil have shared the first single from their upcoming album, and I’m willing to bet it’s not what you were expecting them to deliver.

“Footsteps” is the first official offering from Pop Evil’s Up, the immensely anticipated follow-up to 2013′s Onyx, to find its way online. The song premiered at noon today, June 1, on …

UTG PREMIERE: Seakings – “Kowloon (Walled City)”

I don’t know if you’ve noticed this, but UTG has been undergoing a bit of a transformation over the last month. Our staff, which once included over 30 contributors, has been greatly scaled back in order to better focus our editorial efforts and dedicate more time to connecting people with the music, films, and art we really care about. Covering the latest Billboard or Warped Tour sensation no longer matters to us as much as it once did. What we want more than anything else is to ensure the precious time you have to dedicate to media is time well …

DEATHS Continue To Impress With “Saviour”

Berlin’s DEATHS released two of my favorite tracks last year with “Sold” and “Lonewolves,” which were released on a b/w 7-inch. It took maybe 30 seconds of the latter before I was hooked. I’ve been craving more ever since and I’ve been watching closely as I expect DEATHS to blow up in no time and start occupying spots in the lineups all your favorite festivals.

Early last week, DEATHS returned with their third track to surface. “Saviour” is a tad more upbeat and hectic in its production but the brooding, somber tone is still very much …

Sins (Joseph Milligan of Anberlin) Streams New Album, ‘Divider’

Ex-Anberlin guitarist Joseph Milligan has begun streaming his brand new album, Divider, under his longtime solo moniker, Sins. Check it out by following the jump below.

Catchy and calculated, Milligan’s latest undertaking is a straightforward alt-rock rager that will no doubt conjure fond memories of Anberlin’s heyday, which isn’t particularly surprising considering he was one of the group’s primary songwriters for well over a decade. If you like what you hear, sound off in the replies.
