Luniere returns with vibrant sophomore record, plays release party at Blue 06.16

Portland, Maine's Luniere is releasing its sophomore album Leave The Light just in time for the vibrant New England summer. The band's blend of pop, rock, and folk is gorgeously displayed once again in this second entry to the group's discography. "Always" (streaming) for instance has a lax drum beat that accompanies exquisitely-timed electric guitar embellishments, a sweet hook, and a haunting chorus to finish off. The group graces pop, country, rock, and folk, it caresses these genres to produce tracks perfect for those easy-going summer evenings by the fire with friends, or for reflective times of solitude. The trio will be celebrating the release of their EP with a show in their hometown at Blue on June 16th, singer-songwriter Molly Ladd will be providing support. - Rene Cobar

Patrick Droney releases video for "Stand and Deliver"; hits Bonaroo 06.16

This weekend, Bonaroo will bring thousands of music fans to Tennessee; perhaps you know this if you're reading this post from traffic heading to Great Stage Park right now. One of the rising voices at the festival belongs to Patrick Droney, a recent signee to Warner Records who just released the music video for his single "Stand and Deliver". The song highlights Droney's voice and intense bluesy songwriting style, which many might find similar to the likes of John Mayer, Sam Smith, or even early Adam Levine. Droney will perform at Bonaroo on Sunday night of the festival at 3:45 on the Who Stage; later this summer, he'll play Austin City Limits, as well as an opening slot for Sheryl Crow. Check out the music video for "Stand and Deliver" below. - Will Sisskind

Album Premiere: Violet Crime “Paper Queen EP”

We are proud to be able to premiere the full album stream of the new EP from Violet Crime “Paper Queen”. The "Paper Queen EP" not only shows off the band’s genre-bending sound and boasts production credits of pop-punk heavyweights Sam Guainana (Like Pacific, Story Untold, Silverstein, Young Culture) and Derek DiScanio (State Champs vocalist), but it's also being released through Play Together Records — a social impact label that invests profits back into the Chicago elementary art and music programs.

In addition to a profits from the EP, via Play Together, a portion of Violet Crime’s merch proceeds are directed to the youth after school music program Intonation Music to support the next generation of Chicago artists.

We recently had the chance to ask Jeff Mills of Violet Crime about the new EP; "This album was a long time in the making. For the past year and a half or so, we've been trying to expand and explore our potential when it comes to writing. Our trip to Toronto to actually record everything was the frosting on the cake - our producer Sam Guaiana truly had a vision for all the songs, and challenged us daily in the studio to fulfill that. We all learned and grew so much from that experience!

Just as this album is a step up for us in writing and recording, our June 29th release show at Bottom Lounge will be a step up for our live performance. We have a backing ensemble of horns and vocalists performing with us which is so exciting, and we're planning out every minute of the performance from start to finish. We can't wait celebrate with all our fans, friends, and families!"

You can help Violet Crime celebrate the release of their EP on June 29th at Bottom Lounge with Bright Kid and Johari Noelle.
