Music is all about chemistry, and chemistry is all about bonds. When musicians share the unique bond of life-long friendships, the results are quite spectacular.

This is the case of The Burst and Bloom, 4 talented Chicago musicians who have been playing music together since 2016. This is their brand new adventure in the world of original music: the group is proudly in charge of writing, producing and recording their own material and their vision is simple: making the best music they can possibly make, approaching each song with integrity and with the goal of crafting something truly excellent for themselves and their listeners.


Better Now are a four piece Punk/emo/alternative band from Fort Worth, Texas.


Allbratt was inspired by a license plate in DeKalb, IL. Songs about insomnia, professional wrestling, ennui, Twin Peaks, those sorts of things, with all the melodies and twinkling lead guitar the kids crave. Featuring members of The Grool Brothers, The Ambiguous Triangles, and Backyard Birds of North America.
