New York indie label Unfiltered Records has specialized in unadulterated alternative pop since their first release by Brookville in 2003. Unfiltered was initially a label oriented around releasing musician/producer Andy Chase’s own circle of projects including the entire catalog of his critically acclaimed group, Ivy. The label has also released two albums by Chase’s other band, Brookville and Paco, the side project of Ivy’s singer Dominique Durand. The label quickly gained traction and began to carve a niche for itself in the world of “moody dream pop”. The Unfiltered artist roster also includes the critically acclaimed debut album from The Postmarks (who spent 5 weeks in the CMJ Top 20) and Brooklyn via New Zealand’s The Grey Race.
Unfiltered will christen the new partnership with the release of The Postmarks Memoirs At the End of the World on 08/18/09 followed by Brookville’s third album Broken Lights in September. Unfiltered also recently signed Ukrainian/New York ingÃ©nue, Lana Mir. Her blend of vintage tinged alternative pop has elements of Feist, Nouvelle Vague, Sade and even Billie Holiday. Look for her debut EP this September featuring a cover of the Stone Roses classic “I Wanna Be Adored”. 2010 will bring a full length from Lana Mir as well as a brand new Ivy album.
