We're dedicated to discovering and supporting compelling musicians that create music we'd be lessened without. If there's a soundtrack to the impulse to help another living thing, that's kinda what we're looking for on our little pirate ship.
Flowerbomb is a DC-based alternative rock band founded by Rachel Kline. Combining saturated guitars, ornate rhythms, intricate songwriting, and delicately raw lyrics, Flowerbomb creates a soundscape for nostalgia and heavy feelings accompanied by lush layers and dynamic sounds.Their debut album, Pretty Dark, was released digitally by Mutineer Records on December 18th, 2020, in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. Since it’s release, it has been commended for it’s honest, raw, and vulnerable voice, as well as it’s versatility in blending multiple genres. Flowerbomb combines elements of shoegaze, punk, alternative, emo, and indie rock to create their signature sound. Their song II, was awarded ‘Best Rock Song of the Year’ and their debut album, Pretty Dark was named ‘Best Rock Album of The Year’ during the 2021 Wammie Awards, a DMV (DC, Maryland, Virginia) based award show dedicated to recognizing local artists and musicians for their achievements.
Over the course of three years, Flowerbomb engaged in a meticulous writing and production process that culminated in the inception of Pretty Dark. A fundamental part of recording Pretty Dark was bringing together these different elements, with specific attention to overall sound, feeling, tones, and production, in order to create a truly unique record. Recorded at Bias Studios and The Lab Sound Studio, both located in Northern Virginia, Pretty Dark was engineered and produced collaboratively by Mark Reiter and Flowerbomb drummer and longtime friend, Dan ABH. The record was mixed by Reiter in spring 2020 and mastered by Mike Monseur. Shortly after the completion of Pretty Dark, Flowerbomb was invited to be a part of Mutineer Records, a label founded by Reiter in fall 2020. This collaboration was built on a shared passion for using art as a tool for engaging with social and political issues, as well as a mutual devotion to keeping the local music community alive. The vinyl release of Pretty Dark was released August 6th, 2021.
For the summer of 2021, Flowerbomb is currently gearing up for the vinyl release of Pretty Dark, writing new music, filming music videos, and preparing for shows this upcoming Fall. When they’re not playing music, Flowerbomb enjoys eating tater tots, watching bad 90’s sitcoms, and laughing...a lot.
Action Park is a group of fine young lads from New York that write infectious guitar-driven hooks that penetrate first your flesh, then your brain, finally lodging in your heart. You are diseased by the time the second chorus rolls around and are compelled to find the nearest tree to climb and then sing like a bird in the throes of abandon. Action Park has just put the finishing touches on a record ("You Must Be This Tall To Die") bound to be the soundtrack to your own personal comeback and then inevitable decline.
