New Discovery: PLGRMS

New Discovery: PLGRMS

January 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: Harvey

New Discovery: Harvey

January 26, 2016

One of my favorite ways to find new music is Bandcamp. There’s numerous ways to use tags to find whatever it is you are looking for and I often find myself spending hours just clicking along and stumbling across all kinds of new music to fall in love with. Enter Harvey, a...

New Discovery: Banners

October 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: Frazer

New Discovery: Frazer

September 24, 2015

I’ve been on a bit of a new music kick lately, scouring the internet for the next band to capture my heart and my ears. While on my journey for new music I stumbled upon the Sheffield fivesome, Frazer. While the band has made quite the reputation for themselves across the pond thanks...

New Discovery: Fairchild

New Discovery: Fairchild

August 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: Fleurie

New Discovery: Fleurie

August 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: T0W3RS

New Discovery: T0W3RS

August 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: XING

New Discovery: XING

May 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: Brontosaurus

New Discovery: Brontosaurus

May 24, 2015

There’s a study that’s been floating around the internet recently that shows that the average person stops listening to new music at the age of 33. While I don’t think this will be true for me, I still have a little over 2 years to collect as many new bands as I can before I...

New Discovery: ELEL

New Discovery: ELEL

January 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: DREAMERS

New Discovery: DREAMERS

December 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 McKellar

New Discovery: Eilidh McKellar

November 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...

New Discovery: Dead Seem Old

New Discovery: Dead Seem Old

October 29, 2014

London-based indie / pop songwriter Thom Wicks, aka Dead Seem Old, has released a new single this week and I’m definitely digging it. From the catchy opening notes to the infectious clapping that start out “They Won’t Find Us”, I found myself falling under it’s spell and bobbing my...

New Discovery: Dead Poet Society

New Discovery: Dead Poet Society

October 20, 2014

Hailing from Boston, Massachusetts, Dead Poet Society have enjoyed a moderate bit of success from their Weapons EP as well as for their video for “1.4.5.” which currently has over 145,000 views on YouTube. Lead singer, Jack Underkofler,...
