"Burst and Bloom" is an EP by Cursive, released in 2001. It is notable as the band's first release with cellist Gretta Cohn. It is also notable for its meta-perspective of the music itself. Some lyrics in the song "Sink To The Beat" reference the song-writing process and Saddle Creek Records: "This is the latest from Saddle Creek." This theme would carry over to Cursive's next full length, The Ugly Organ, which contained songs like "Art Is Hard" which again referenced the song writing process.

The opening to Track 2, "The Great Decay," is prominently featured in the immensely popular Emogame.

This album is the 35th release of Saddle Creek Records.
