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.
GroundBurst is an instrumental rock trio whose sound strikes for the band’s kaleidoscopic approach and wide-open mindset. The band consists of Phil, Si, and Erik, respectively on guitars, bass & keys, and drums. These three talented musicians set out to create a lush, diverse and textural musical backdrop, borrowing from influences as diverse as electronic music, psychedelia, rock and even jazz with a minimalistic flair. Their recent release, “Triad” is an EP featuring 3 original compositions, as the title of the release might lead you to guess!
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.
