Vanna Sign To Pure Noise Records

vanna_2If you ask us, Vanna is having a pretty great year. In addition to being added to the 2014 Vans Warped Tour, the Boston natives have just signed with Pure Noise Records, and will be releasing their label debut this June. Speaking about the signing, Vanna said, “The entire idea of making music is to be able to share your passion your frustrations your problems with as many people as possible, that’s always been our goal as a band. In saying that we always strive to work with people who feel the same way we do. Pure Noise Records is about that exactly. After co-releasing The Few and The Far Between on vinyl last year and seeing what the record label is all about, we as a band felt that Pure Noise would be a good home for our future and a step in the direction that we wanted to take. We are honored to join the Pure Noise Records roster, full of amazing bands that are just killing it. We look forward to the future, as our musical family grows larger. Thank you for listening. I believe in you if you believe in me.”

Catch the band on Vans Warped Tour this summer, and keep an eye out for more details on their June release.

Blondfire Release New Album ‘Young Heart’

BondfireLast year around this time, we showcased electro-pop brother-sister duo, Blondfire as our Pro Artist of the Week, and we’ve been watching (and listening to) them closely ever since. So when we heard that they had just dropped their latest album via Tender Tender Rush, and it was mixed by Wally Gagel (Best Coast, Family of the Year), you can only imagine how thrilled we were to share the news with you.

We like to think this music will reach just about everyone, but for fans of MGMT especially, this is about to become your new favorite band. Grab a copy of the new album right here, and and catch the band on tour this winter with The Sounds and Ghost Beach. Continue reading ‘Blondfire Release New Album ‘Young Heart’’

Danny Brown Releases ‘Old’ Album Trailer

Detroit native Danny Brown has released a trailer for his highly-anticipated debut album, Old.

Brown has already built himself a rep. He’s a troublemaker with a fondness for drugs and a heart of gold, building a fun-loving brand in the world of hip-hop. But in the trailer for Old, there are essentially no lighthearted moments. Brown showcases his Detroit neighborhood, including the homes of friends and neighbors, and the dilapidated buildings that are littered throughout the once thriving city. It’s simple and powerful, and sets up Old as an effort produced by a more mature Danny Brown than what fans heard on XXX. You can view the clip below.

Old arrives in stores September 30, which is just in time for Brown’s fall co-headlining tour with Action Bronson. Click here to view the full tour itinerary. Continue reading ‘Danny Brown Releases ‘Old’ Album Trailer’

Further, he’s also chosen to not mention any featured artists in advance, in hopes that fans will start at the beginning and enjoy the full album listening experience. Do you think this is a wise move? Comment below and let us know your thoughts. We’ll post a link to 10 Pc Mild as soon as it becomes available.

Hello, everyone! It’s a cool Sunday afternoon here in Boston, but the headlines keep on rolling.

We’ll return with regular article tomorrow, but for now…

  • New Jersey rock act My Chemical Romance have broken up.

  • Katy Perry and Justin Bieber were among those who took home Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Awards.

The Strokes To Release New Album In 2013

The Strokes

Finally one music rumor has been laid to rest. After a Seattle radio station announced that it had a brand new Strokes track titled “All The Time,” the Internet instantly came alive with speculation about a possible new album from the band. Now, we don’t like to encourage rumors or speculation (except most of the time), but as it turns out, they weren’t lying. The Strokes’ fifth studio album is set to be released later this year, and the aforementioned “All The Time” is indeed the first single.

“We have songs that you can tell are gonna be good ones (that) we’re all excited to play,” explained guitarist Albert Hammond Jr., speaking to Billboard in 2011, ”I don’t know if we’re the kind of band that would ever play something new before it came out, just the way the Internet works and people recording it. I think even if we had the whole record done, we wouldn’t play it ’til the album was out.”

Tegan And Sara Release “I’m Not Your Hero”

In another step toward a new sound, Tegan and Sara have released “I’m Not Your Hero,” their second single off Heartthrob. Due out in spring 2013 via Warner Bros. Records, Heartthrob led fan’s anticipation with the first single, “Closer” last month. Though fans have feared a more mainstream sound from the duo after their announcement that this would be a pop album, Tegan Quin hopes to put fan’s worries to rest.

“When you say ‘pop’ these days, everybody thinks Katy Perry,” Tegan Quin said. “We mean pop in the very eighties sense: hooks, keyboards, lots of vocals.”

Check out Tegan and Sara on tour all through December, and listen to “I’m Not Your Hero” right here.
