You can read our interview with Unifier here. The band have just released their debut full length album, Colorado and we discussed to process behind the album and their recent name change.
They are definitely from a personal point of view for me. I try to be poetic and use fairly general themes, without being vague so that the listener can make their own interpretation and decide what the lyrics mean to them to a certain extent. A lot of the general ideas and themes on the album came from a time of reflection I had when I was in Colorado quite a few years ago, which is why we decided to name the album that. I'd say some of the main topics I come back to are: people being deceitful or...

Tiny Engines is quickly becoming one of my favorite indie labels around, so I'm excited that we get to announce their latest signing - Philadelphia's Little Big League. This female-fronted quartet is a bit shoegazy, a bit indie-pop, but totally worth checking out. And check them out you can, as we're also exclusively premiering the band's single, "My Very Own You," in the replies (or over at the band's AP.net profile). Drawing comparisons to Sleater-Kinney and Now, Now, the band will release its debut, These Are Good People, this summer. You can pre-order the band's 7" here.

Motionless In White drummer Angelo Parente has left the band.
To my friends, family, and all the amazing Motionless In White fans, this is very hard to say, and I’m sure it will hit me harder soon, but I will no longer be in the band. This decision did not just all of sudden happen. After doing this since I was 17, the nonstop touring, and everything else that comes with the life of a musician, has finally caught up with me. It has affected me mentally and physically and it’s to a point where the best thing for the rest of the band and myself would be for me to call it quits. Please know that the band and I are on good terms, best of friends and I love them all very much. No matter...

After Baauer's "Harlem Shake" reached #1 on the Billboard Top 100, Baauer and his label (Mad Decent) are being asked to pay royalties for the uncleared samples.
Both Mr. Musson and Mr. Delgado are seeking compensation from Mad Decent Records, which put out the single last year. The label and Mr. Rodrigues declined to comment. But the tale of how an obscure dance track containing possible copyright violations rose to the top of pop charts illustrates not only the free-for-all nature of underground dance music but also the power of an Internet fad to create a sudden hit outside the major-label system.

Mosey, featuring JD and Dan of Valencia, have posted up a new song.
I’ve been writing and recording music in one form or another since I was 12 years old. It had always been something I “just did” and I can’t honestly say I ever gave it a fair chance to reach its full potential. But recently, with an extra bit of confidence, a series of liberating events, and an unwavering determination, I decided now is the time and finally made a full-length record of my own. And around it, formed a new band called Mosey. Here is the first song from that record.

PureVolume sat down with Kate Nash to discuss her new album, her break-up, and more.
My record label was really unsure, but I said ‘Look. Either I go make this record or I go to a mental health clinic. So it’s really not your choice: This is what I’m going to do, for my own personal mental health. This is what I have to do, because music is my therapy.’

For today's "countdown" feature, I thought that we could maybe get a good discussion going about our favorite hidden gems in music. I posted a list of some of my favorites a while back in my blog, but I never shared them here. Here are 5 things I find cool about music. What are some of yours?
The Countdown1) The last line from The Format's Interventions & Lullabies is "we all fall down" and the first line to Dog Problems is "ashes to ashes."

2) Brand New’s "Limousine" is about … this. I doubt it’s possible to watch that video and not cry. Also, that there’s a Track 0 on TDAGARIM.

3) In The Gaslight Anthem's "Meet Me By The River’s Edge" the lyric, "No surrender, my Bobby Jean" are...
