Round 2 of Volume Starts Now!

Are you ready for some great new local music? I hope so, because we've just finished reviewing the second round of submissions for Volume, our local music site. We received over 60 submissions this time around, and have chosen the albums that will be used. We're working with the musicians on the paperwork, and on our technical end to get the music loaded. We'll be releasing new albums, every Tuesday, as we're ready (again, DRM- and $$$-free to DPL cardholders!).
