Happy Summer from Burst & Bloom!
Happy Summer from Burst & Bloom!
Four distinct releases from four distinct parts of the country; Bellows (Chicago, IL), Guy Capecelatro III (Portsmouth, NH), The Verms (San Francisco, CA), and Hello Shark (Burlington, VT) have all released new albums on Burst & Bloom. Something for everyone, as they say. Check ‘em out. Click on the album covers for more information and to stream. Happy spring!
We are thrilled to announce the release of Bellows’ CD As If To Say I Hate Daylight. It’s a newly mastered version of their 2011 debut.
It sounds amazing and has all new packaging. For a limited time, all orders of the CD come with a download of the brand-new single ‘White Sheet’ / ‘Blue Breath, Rosy Death’, which you can’t find anywhere else!
Order As If To Say I Hate Daylight HERE.
Here’s a video of Bellows practicing ‘Blue Breath / Rosy Death’.
We’re excited to announce that we’re curating a new music series at Engine, an art gallery in Biddeford, ME (halfway between Portsmouth, NH and Portland, ME). We’re kicking off the series with New Haven, CT’s legendary space-rock band Landing, supported by Selbyville’s Artie Fischer. There will be a two-band bill each Saturday night, and occasional Sunday afternoon jazz shows.
In March, Burst & Bloom artists Guy Capecelatro III and Mara Flynn will perform, as well as several other friends of the label. Look for Hello Shark and more this spring, too.
If you are interested in performing in the series, please send an email to email@example.com. We look forward to seeing you at Engine!
Toward the end of 2012, Beck released Song Reader, an album’s worth of new music exclusively in sheet music form. We have assembled five groups to learn, arrange, and perform them for you. Musicians include members of Tan Vampires, Tiger Saw, Pearl & the Beard, and many more. Song Reader will be played in its entirety, four groups playing five songs each. This performance is one night-only!
In the wake of Modern Guilt and The Information, Beck’s latest album comes in an almost-forgotten form—twenty songs existing only as individual pieces of sheet music, never before released or recorded. Complete with full-color, heyday-of-home-play-inspired art for each song and a lavishly produced hardcover carrying case, Song Reader is an experiment in what an album can be at the end of 2012—an alternative that enlists the listener in the tone of every track, and that’s as visually absorbing as a dozen gatefold LPs put together.

Happy holidays everyone! Lots of exciting things are happening here at Burst & Bloom.
Over the next few months, we’ll be re-issuing the debut album As If To Say I Hate Daylight by the New York-based Bellows. We recently caught their amazing live show, and were blown away. They’re hitting the road in January, and tour dates are posted at our live page.
We’ll also be issuing an anthology of Christopher Holt’s Tuna Time comics.
And soon, look for new albums by The Landladys, Mara Flynn, Zach Tremblay, Bellows, and more!
