Bad Sign Share “The Recidivist”

Bad Sign are kickstarting the promotional efforts for their forthcoming EP today with the release of a new song titled “The Recidivist.”

Posted first to YouTube as part of a slick lyric video, “The Recidivist” kicks off with all the aggression and intensity you would expect from a band trying to find their way onto the Vans Warped Tour. As the introduction transitions into the first verse, however, there is a melodic sense of heart and soul that comes pouring through the speakers, changing the hard-hitting track into something slightly more alternative. This is not a complaint. Not in the …

Amative

UTG Premiere: Amative – “Selfish Desires” (Official Music Video)

We have been focusing a lot of our efforts in July on exposing readers to new music, and today may be my favorite of all ‘discovery’ posts to debut so far on the site. Amative are a crushingly heavy outfit from Ohio who are not afraid to wear their hearts on their sleeves. Their debut EP, Flatlined, debuted in April. We missed it, and the more we listen to it now the more we want to kick ourselves for not being familiar with their work in time to help with the initial album promotion. Hopefully this post makes up …

REVIEW: Northernmost – ‘Northernmost’

Artist: Northernmost
Album: Northernmost
Genre: Post-Hardcore, Indie

Let me first begin by saying I love the name Northernmost. I know one is to not judge a book by its cover, but anyone acclimated with my writing knows just how much I appreciate a northern escapist mindset. With this on the tip of my imagination, when Northernmost’s debut LP Northernmost made it to my ears, I was ready to find where the northernmost point truly is.

Beginning with the somber and calming “Basic Space,” Northernmost introduce us with ease to their vast soundscape. Releasing a swooning quell on the mind, “Basic …

Let The Analog Affair Kickstart Your Weekend With “Take Me Home”

The digital age is a crazy cool time for music for a number of reasons, including the ability for musicians separated by hundreds, if not thousands of miles to collaborate on projects that the entire world can enjoy. This is one of those projects.

Evan Baker and Cody Moser are the two creative minds behind The Analog Affair, a fast-rising electronic outfit with a wide range of influences from the worlds of rock and pop. Their sound brings to mind the kind of cutesy indie meets summertime electronica fodder you would expect Pitchfork to flip over, with a subtle sentimentality …

Rebel Revive

REVIEW: Jamie’s Elsewhere – ‘Rebel/Revive’

Artist: Jamie’s Elsewhere
Album: Rebel/Revive
Genre: Post-hardcore
Label: Unsigned

​Jamie’s Elsewhere have had some dramatic changes in their sound over the years. ​They’ve yet to release two full-length studio albums in a row with the same frontman so it’s been an interesting ride for fans who’ve been there since the beginning. After they left Victory Records their future seemed uncertain, but after some silence they recruited a new vocalist and promised more music. It didn’t take long for them to start teasing new music, and what was released seemed promising.

Considering the group has had different frontmen for their albums, …

Shapes & Colors Launch A “$10 Campaign” To Help Pay To Record With Aaron Sprinkle

There are only a handful of “big” producers in the alternative music scene, and Aaron Sprinkle is one of them. He’s worked with artists like Emery, The Almost, Anberlin, Relient K and many, many more. A small up and coming alternative rock outfit by the name of Shapes & Colors happily announced today that they will be recording their forthcoming EP with Sprinkle. This is a great opportunity for them to get something out there that’s produced by a professional, and with that comes a bigger bill. Because of this, the band has launched an Indiegogo campaign dubbed the “$10 …

Reach The Sky

Watch Reach The Sky’s Music Video For “Another Me”

Lately it seems that there has been an influx in talented post hardcore/metalcore bands pouring out of Europe and the UK. I find myself liking more and more bands from our neighbors to the east, and I’m certainly not unhappy about it. One group that’s carving a path for themselves is the five piece Germany-based outfit known as Reach The Sky. Yesterday they premiered their very first music video, and it’s for the single “Another Me.” You can watch that video by taking a look below the jump.
