The Pulltops are a Milwaukee-based power-pop trio with a singing drummer. Their music is best described as energetic album-rock meets power-pop delivered with a punk edge. The trio formed in Milwaukee in 2002 with the release of their first and more upbeat power-pop focused release, “8-Track”. Since then, they have added in classic-rock elements along with instrumental experimentation, resulting in a mix of hooks and moody rock. The band is primarily comprised of guitarist Tom Crowell and drummer/vocalist Mark Pierret. Bassist Steve Kerwin is a frequent presence when performing live.
"When I Was Young” is the straight-forward rock track on The Pulltops' new EP, “By Accident or Design”. Lyrically the songs takes a look at past mistakes filled with regret, yet also clings to a glimmer of hope for a chance to move forward. All of this is accented by a mix of powerful guitars, alternating vocal leads, and a searing guitar solo over a power-house rhythm section that move the lyrics along.
These Are Truly The Last Days is a musical project with a driven experimental twist. Their music blurs the lines between various genres, including ambient, electronica, glitch hop, and more. The project’s self-titled studio effort features 11 studio tracks.
Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’
