New Electronic Indie Piano Pop Announced

Color Theory announced the release date for the new album "Adjustments Pt. 1". It is the first collection of original material in nearly two years.

Essential Buy: Violens "True"


This is an essential album for 2012. You can stream it here and read the band's reasoning behind each track. Violens manages to bring the early 90's feel to today's short-attention-span ear-bud music fan.
