Martha Berner and the Significant Others
Ever since the release of her 2005 Machine Records full-length debut "This Side of Yesterday" indie-folk singer/songwriter Martha Berner has created quite a buzz in the music world. Not only did that release and her 2007 follow-up EP, "Ten Tiny Little Pieces" garner a wealth of press accolades both nationally and abroad, including features in high-profile publications, such as Magnet, Performing Songwriter, Chicago Tribune, Hear/Say and Out Magazine, but it also opened the door for worldwide radio play (not only in the U.S., but also abroad on radio stations in Japan, Australia, France, Germany, Italy, the UK, Israel, as well as many other countries). In addition, Martha has made numerous in-studio radio performances throughout the nation, and has also performed live on a number of FOX, CBS and NBC television news shows. Her song "Wait For Me" was also featured on MTV's popular television show "The Real World."Martha's own upbeat Americana composition "A Town Called Happiness" was also featured along with songs from Neko Case, Joseph Arthur, The New Pornographers, Michelle Shocked and others on a compilation CD entitled The Voices and Faces Project. This same song also later appeared on an exclusive CD sampler compiled by Chicago's I-GO Car Sharing alongside other Chicago luminaries such as Wilco, Studs Terkel and Neko Case.

"...evokes the vocals of Tori Amos and the musical style of Wilco."  The Chicago Tribune

Martha Berner's "This Side of Yesterday" is a very solid disc with tunes that are peppy, poppy and deliciously sad. Each tune has its own distinct hook, with seemingly very little effort..." - Richard Milne / WXRT Chicago


Cobalt & the Hired Guns
Cobalt & the Hired Guns is about love and guts, energy and enthusiasm  refusing to pretend they aren't having fun.  The repertoire for this five-piece from Chicago has been described as Americana, Folk Punk, Pop, or just Good Ol' Fashioned Rock n' Roll. They've been compared to The Hold Steady, The Clash, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, The Fratellis, Frightened Rabbit, Backyard Tire Fire, and "Wilco on Xanax covering The Clash"  In 2008 they released their first album, Jump the Fence, which saw the band getting serious about art and environmentalism  the album was a carbon neutral project.

Their new full-length album is scheduled to drop in mid-late 2011 and promises to be their most energetic and musically dynamic project to date. With the addition of accordion, a full horn section (think soul-inspired backup horns), and other audible goodies, this will be the album to establish the band as a full-on rock force in Chicago  and maybe the world.


Depravos De La Mour
Uncouth, lewd and nuts.   The Depravos De La Mour are your pals. The Cramps and other rude noises influence our music. We have been in front of your damn noses for five years. We are really fond of the Flesh Hungry Dog Show. That is where we played our first gig ever. We are a product of our environment. Nothing is our fault. Direct all complaints to the Pope.
