Audiobakery

Let it be known, Audiobakery is not every other band you've heard. As a matter of fact, you may have a bit of difficulty explaining exactly which other bands they sound like. They will pound you in the face, lift you endlessly above the earth only to drop you with a moment's notice, leaving you to free fall back to the ground, and then they will repeat the process. Lots of space and sharp contrasts in sound leave no listener bored when embarking on an Audiobakery song, that is, if you consider their 6-10 minute compositions songs.

Let it be known, Audiobakery is not every other band you've heard. As a matter of fact, you may have a bit of difficulty explaining exactly which other bands they sound like. They will pound you in the face, lift you endlessly above the earth only to drop you with a moment's notice, leaving you to free fall back to the ground, and then they will repeat the process. Lots of space and sharp contrasts in sound leave no listener bored when embarking on an Audiobakery song, that is, if you consider their 6-10 minute compositions songs. This young group use their wealth of creativity as a means to connect the strangest of parts or sounds together seamlessly, sometimes creating what sounds like multiple songs unfolding on one track. Audiobakery use their unique sound and high energy to rock you during live performances, doing their very best to tear out their souls and depress them into your ears, leaving you with the feeling that they will be continuing to make music for a very long time.

AudioBakery strives, as any other artist, to surpass the oppressing ceiling of genre and to just write good music. What began in seventh grade as an escape from the nonsensical woes of puberty, Brad Bacci, Jon Nadel, and Zak Sprenger embarked on their musical futures with little intention of considering what would become known as Audiobakery a career route. They continued to write, adopting new names and new members as their high school careers continued, always in search of a new sound or a new direction. Come the boys' senior year in high school they'd found a writing system, a unique sound, and a obsession with creation that would become Audiobakery. With a cast consisting of Brad on vocals and guitar, Zak on guitar, Fluky on bass, and Luke Jarvie on drums, the boys released their first four track EP, "Sounds Yummy." For boys but 17 in age, the penetrating bass lines, protest laden lyrics, and sharp bite of heavy yet intoxicating guitar riffs show hints of Incubus, Rx Bandits, as well as some strange, eerie soundscapes reminiscent of Omar Rodriguez-Lopez of the Mars Volta. Their hope to inspire through music is brought to life by the mantra that is track 4, "Complexify"'s chorus: Why are we always waiting? Action is what gives life meaning.

Following a year separated by state lines as the boys shipped off to college and the addition of Dane Jarvie, Luke's brother on keys, Audiobakery stuck true to their estranged song structures while showcasing both mellow and psychedelic dynamics the first EP may have but hinted at. After finishing studio work on their most recent release, "The Duality of Progress" Audiobakery went through a line up change, adding Brett Schomer on drums as well as Jake Johnson as a DJ Killmore/Mr. Han electronic sound smith. While "The Duality of Progress" certainly holds the most elegant as well as the most radio friendly of ingredients from Audiobakery yet, the boys are not completely satisfied.

"I just want to melt peoples faces when they see us play this stuff live. Not enough bands do that anymore, just go out there to rock everyone." Jon 'Fluky' Nadel, bassist, stated. The group is currently writing their first full length album, one which the boys hope will capture the spectrum of genres they can tastefully blend. Their goal is to capture all twelve months of the year from a Chicagoan perspective, beginning in brittle January and continuing through spring, summer, fall, back to winter with December. There is no current release date set. « hide
