UTG VIDEO PREMIERE: Jeremy Loops – “Sinner”

Every now and then, a folk artist comes our way that leaves us completely floored. In 2008, it was Fleet Foxes. In 2012, it was First Aid Kit. Now, in 2014, it’s Jeremy Loops.

Fresh out of Cape Town, South Africa, Jeremy Loops is a modern folk musician whose music is just now reaching our shores. While his debut album, Trading Change, has already debuted at #1 on his homeland’s iTunes chart, the 27-year-old is still beginning to form his place here in the US. The one-man folk act scratches up a percussive sound thanks to his loop pedal. …

Grimes Visits a Metaphorical Hell in “Go” Video

Like we needed another reason to love Grimes. We were already in love with her new track “Go,” which her and Blood Diamond apparently wrote for Rihanna. But I think any song would be better done by Grimes. So thanks, Rihanna, for messing that one up.

Now, we have a video for it, and it stirs up all kinds of thoughts. The beginning of the video features spoken word vocals by David Hayter, of Metal Gear Solid fame, and it’s the opening passage from Dante’s The Inferno.

The video flashes through different imagery and scenery. Sometimes …

Watch: “Weird Al” Yankovic’s Hysterical Medley Of Emmy-Nominated TV Theme Songs

Last night, the 66th annual Emmy Awards were broadcast worldwide. There were many great moments, including when Bryan Cranston kissed Julia Louis-Dreyfus in such a way that put every great real relationship to shame. There were also awards, but that is not what we are here to discuss.

In the middle of the show, the awards were put on hold so that musical guest “Weird Al” Yankovic could share a brand new, never before heard medley of TV theme songs that took the audience – as well as viewers at home – by complete surprise. Yankovic has always had a …

Hear Cobra Starship and Icona Pop Team Up In “Never Been In Love”

It’s been three years since Cobra Starship‘s  last album, Night Shades. Now they’re back and teaming up with radio hit duo Icona Pop for their new single, “Never Been In Love,” which everyone has been talking about, from Pete Wentz to Panic! At The Disco. Prepare yourself, though. It sounds pretty different from their previous works.

The song’s keyboard and chord progression are reminiscent of Fatboy Slim’s “Praise You,” but it still maintains the characteristics that make it a Cobra Starship hit, even with the glossing of Icona Pop. Although considering the band wrote a song about …

Charli XCX

Watch Charli XCX Hijack a School Bus In “Break The Rules” Video

Back before “Fancy” and The Fault In Our Stars and millions of YouTube views, Charli XCX was ghostwriting for singers and working on her own set of pop songs. Fastforward to 2014, and she’s putting out a new album called Sucker (out October 21), and singing a little off-key on the radio to “Boom Clap.” This year has seen her swap her sound to a new house pop style, but “Break The Rules” is phenomenally recorded, giving attention to bass drops and electric drum claps carefully instead of overindulging when not needed — and the new music video …

Dave Chappelle Returns To Hartford, CT With OddBall Comedy Festival (Video)

Just over a year ago we ran a story about comedian Dave Chappelle having a meltdown in Hartford, CT while appearing on the inaugural Oddball Comedy Festival. It was an embarrassing moment for the comedian, and in the weeks that followed the former Comedy Central star was thrown through the ringer from various members of the press. No one knew if Chappelle would ever return to the tour again, let alone the city where his meltdown occurred, but over this past weekend Chappelle made good with a surprise appearance that has since found its way online.

Florida Georgia Line Perform New Song “Anything Goes” In St. Louis (Video)

Country turned pop superstars Florida Georgia Line are less than two months from the release of their sophomore album, and to date only one song has been made available to the public. That is until the band played St. Louis over the weekend.

Performing in front of a sold out crowd on Saturday, August 23, Florida Georgia Line informed fans they simply could not wait any longer to share new material with their audience. Before long, a new song titled “Anything Goes” was introduced to a roaring response. We were not on site, but as soon as the band tweeted

Taylor Swift shake it off

Watch Taylor Swift Perform “Shake It Off” At The 2014 VMAs

The 2014 Video Music Awards took place Sunday night, August 24, on MTV. None of our primary staff have cable in their home, so we had to watch our Twitter feeds and wait for anonymous strangers online to upload clips for us to enjoy. Those videos have begun to appear online, and it’s time for us to share them with you.

Taylor Swift had arguably one of the biggest weeks of her career earlier this month. During that time, she debuted a new single titled “Shake It Off” that has quickly taken over top 40 radio. Swift debuted her live …

Taylor Swift Announces New Album ’1989′ And The Lead Single Is Pretty…Different

At long last, Taylor Swift has announced her long-awaited new album and shared the first single. She hosted a very anticipated live stream on Yahoo today where she announced the album, titled 1989 (the year she was born), comes out October 27. Surprisingly, lead single “Shake It Off” features some snappy electronic production, deep baritone saxophone, and Swift laying down some real-talk rapping reminiscent of Avril Lavigne.

The music video for “Shake It Off” shows Swift pretty much responding to all the naysayers from over the years. For those who think she’s a cookie cutter country pop star, watch her …

Fast-rising pop rock band 5 Seconds Of Summer have spent the past several weeks touring North America as the opening act on the latest leg of One Direction‘s world tour. In that time, the Australian based band have made their first appearance in many US cities, including New York, Los Angeles, Boston, and – most recently – Detroit.

Over the weekend, 5 Seconds Of Summer were performing in the Motor City when they decided to make a last minute change to their set list and debut a live rendition of Eminem‘s classic 8 Mile song, “Lose Yourself.” The …

Michael Jackson Releases New Music Video on Twitter

Michael Jackson‘s music career has been busier in the five years since his passing than in the last ten years of his life. Xscape, his second posthumous album, was released in early May of this year, overseen by LA Reid and featuring the work of Timbaland and Jerome “J-Roc” Harmon, Stargate, Rodney Jerkins and John McClain. The album incorporates new material with tracks that Jackson left unfinished, all recorded between 1983 and 1999.

Gerard Way Posts ‘Pink Station Zero’ Video Teasing New Music

Former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way is responsible for one of the fall’s most anticipated albums, and earlier today we learned additional music from that release will soon be available.

Using Twitter as his launching pad, Gerard Way turned to social media this afternoon to share a new video titled Pink Station Zero. The name is a reference to one of many ‘stations’ that will be found in All Ages, a comic Way is currently developing when not making music. In the clip, what looks to be a futuristic dance party themed television show filmed using technology …
