New Discovery: The Beach BatsAugust 21, 2019
If you’ve ever wondered what it might sound like if Jim Morrison, Tom Waits, and Jimmy Buffet got together for a psychedelic beach party, do I have a band for you. Hailing from the great white north, Hamilton, Ontario’s The Beach Bats just released their debut album, Last Resort this past spring....

New Discovery: PLGRMSJanuary 12, 2017
As my musical horizons broaden, I find myself listening to more and more music that I probably wouldn’t have listened to before starting UBL. Thinking back, I wonder how I didn’t get bored with my music as there wasn’t much variety. Thankfully, my tastes have grown allowing me to enjoy a plethora of...

New Discovery: BannersOctober 21, 2015
I’ve been trying to get back into the swing of listening to new releases every week but it’s been a bit of a struggle. A busy personal life mixed with a sudden need to completely clean out my iTunes (it’s gotten quite out of hand to be fair) means that listening to new music hasn’t been...

New Discovery: FairchildAugust 28, 2015
I keep stumbling across talented bands hailing from the land down under recently. My newest discovery is FAIRCHILD, a six-piece indie rock act from the Gold Coast. The band has basically been touring non-stop but still has found time to release an EP late last year. FAIRCHILD seems to draw inspiration from 80’s new...
New Discovery: FleurieAugust 21, 2015
I was skeptical about checking out the new Scream MTV show but as an avid fan of the original franchise and just a horror lover in general I decided to give it a shot. It’s not amazing but I’m enjoying the ride so far and looking forward to see what else the show has to offer. What...
New Discovery: T0W3RSAugust 12, 2015
Sometimes it takes a major shakeup for someone to really find them self. That’s what happened with Derek Torres, aka T0W3RS a couple of years ago after a breakup with his girlfriend-who was a member of T0W3RS- was followed by three other members leaving the group. Instead of giving up on T0W3RS completely, Torres...
New Discovery: XINGMay 26, 2015
This is more of a newish discovery as I actually stumbled across these guys a few months ago but failed to bring them to the attention of our readers. I’m looking to right that wrong today as this is a band that should definitely be on your radar if they aren’t already.

New Discovery: ELELJanuary 15, 2015
Mid-way through January and I’m already craving spring and summer and we haven’t even gotten that much snow yet. Thankfully there’s “40 Watt”, a great summer track from up-and-coming Nashville 8-piece, ELEL. I know what you’re thinking, holy band members, but even with a packed roster, ELEL’s sound is never overwrought...
New Discovery: DREAMERSDecember 3, 2014
What I probably miss most about having satellite radio is the ease at which I discovered new music. It’s not like it’s hard to find new bands to love what with the internet and all, but all I had to do was listen to the radio whenever I was in the car and I was...
New Discovery: Eilidh McKellarNovember 9, 2014
Scotland’s own Eilidh McKellar has a musical talent beyond her mere 20 years of age. Her debut album Delta Devil Dreams draws inspiration from some of the best classic rock acts including Humble Pie, Eric Clapton, and Led Zeppelin, while adding a touch of blues thanks to McKellar’s soulful croon and guitar chops. McKellar has been playing...
