Single Review: The Curls – Bad BoiSeptember 25, 2018
Fresh off their Pitchfork Music Festival performance, Chicago’s own The Curls have just released their killer new single “Bad Boi.” The new track from the art-pop sextet is a charming tale of love and rebellion.
“Bad Boi” starts with some charming horns, a bouncy beat, and enchanting backing vocals. Singer Mick Fansler croons...
Single Review: Dead Seem Old – MischiefAugust 7, 2017
London based project Dead Seem Old is back with a new single, “Mischief.” Once again songwriter Thom Wicks and producer Javier Weyler (Phil Manzanera, Stereophonics) come together to create a minimal yet captivating single along the same lines as the duo’s previous releases “They Won’t Find Us” and ...
Single Review: Wonky Tonk – Four Letter WordFebruary 9, 2017
While my musical tastes have broadened quite a bit since starting UBL, I still find myself unable to enjoy most country music. I have, however, become much more willing to give new music a chance even it falls pretty close into the realm of country music. It was clear from the first glance that I...

Single Review: Michigander – MexicoSeptember 2, 2016
This summer has flown by. It seems like only yesterday I was sitting down to listen to Jason Singer, aka Michigander’s, first single, “Nineties.” The summer went so fast that I barely had time to start going through withdrawals from that single before getting some new music from Singer.

Single Review: Michigander – NinetiesApril 29, 2016
I’ve been waiting for new music from Kalamazoo’s own Jason Singer, aka Michigander, since I first discovered him while perusing the Real Feels video archive late one night. As there were only a limited number of tracks I could find from Michigander, seeing them on the roster for Fusion Show’s...

Single Review: Gosh Pith – Gold ChainDecember 9, 2015
A band’s live performance can make or break your opinion of them. Admittedly, one of my favorite things about going to a concert is getting to check out some new to me bands and, hopefully, discovering new music to fall in love with. I’ve been exposed to a lot of home grown acts since starting...
Single Review: Silversun Pickups – NightlightAugust 15, 2015
Single Review: Keyoung – Blood CharmAugust 6, 2015
One thing that blogging about music has brought out in me is a more open mind when it comes to new bands. Often I find myself thinking about how a new artist that I’ve discovered either organically or at a concert would not have appealed to me even just a couple of years ago. This is...
Single Review: Lovedrug – Cult Kid! / Ray GunJuly 24, 2015
Single Review: PALACES – Dust / TelephoneJuly 16, 2015
Detroit’s own PALACES is hard at work churning out new music, giving us another set of hypnotic singles on the tail of the release of “Axiomatic” and “Let Me Get Higher.” Cat Cobra and S.S. continue to explore numerous genres and sounds crafting another pair of unique singles that will have you forgetting whatever...
Single Review: The Lighthouse and the Whaler – I Want To Feel AliveJune 9, 2015
I stumbled across The Lighthouse and the Whaler in late 2013 and fell instantly in love. I listened to their two albums non-stop for months and waited patiently for new music. I was elated when they released the news that a new album would be coming out this year (August 28th to be exact)....
