Baggy-Delic-Folk-Rock & Roll from Los Angeles CA
SEND MEDICINE began as the solo project for Toronto based singer/songwriter Julian Hacquebard in the summer of 2012. Julian then moved to Los Angeles, shaping a sound that LA Record called "a heady mix of psych, blues, folk and surf - a winning combination". Since, the band has expanded to a full lineup, with a live show featuring percussion, backing vocals, and theremin.
SEND MEDICINE has performed at Echo Park Rising, Summer Sweat 2015, The Satellite, The Bootleg Theater, and at Jam in the Van at Green in Pasadena. The band has been featured on Indie FM’s Buzzbands, The Deli’s Band of the Month, Hype Machine, Live on KSPC 88.7, KBeach Radio, and more.
In 2016, the band released their debut album “Scary Aquarius Daughter”, featuring lead single “July Eyes” and follow-up “Tall Flowers”. The album was performed by Salvatore Romano (Drums), Ryan Glennan (Percussion), Lauren Grimaldi (Percussion), Aaron Stern (Bass), and Connor Hill (Guitar).
SEND MEDICINE is currently touring and writing the follow-up, working out new songs on the road.
Alternative Dream Pop from Auburn AL
imagination / americana / middle school dystopia from Rhode Island
LittleBoyBigHeadOnBike, the project of Rhode Island-based songwriter William Orchard, began in 2014 upon an intense dissociation from American Suburbia. Living in a backwards world of imagination that comes out at nightfall, Orchard’s early material captured the DIY spirit that emerges when boredom, bicycles, imagination, and childlike freedom are mixed. Having released an unheard of spew of early material (50 EP’s and albums) in the lo-fi nature of Sparklehorse, Mount Eerie, or Frankie Cosmos, LittleBoyBigHeadOnBike went nearly unnoticed by the independent music community of Providence, RI. This all changed when, through a freak set of coincidences involving an Antler’s show in Pawtucket, RI, Will Orchard joined forces with the growing indie-folk powerhouse known as the Brazen Youth.
By the time LittleBoyBigHeadOnBike had gained a reputation of prolific lunacy and a non-traditional, whimsical approach to folk music, he had become part a larger circle of artists (including The Brazen Youth) in New England known as the Ashlawn Creative Collective – located at the 300 year old Ashlawn Farm in the small town of Lyme, CT. This place of strange timeless beauty meshed well with his idiosyncratic style and bred out his first widely available, but independent release – God Damn Wonderland (2017). A more collaborative effort, God Damn Wonderland was recorded in the library space at Ashlawn in a span of nine days and gathered a moderate amount of attention upon its release, allowing Orchard’s vulnerable, strange songs to break into the ears of the East Coast DIY scene.
Now, following a year of extensive touring of the U.S. in band and solo settings, LittleBoyBigHeadOnBike’s discography consists of 99 EP’s and Albums, totaling nearly 500 songs. Orchard’s 100th record, Big Blue Butterflies is a story of the painful transformation from child to adult, fantasy to reality, and the limbo in the middle – all within the context of chaotic America in 2018. Big Blue Butterflies touches upon the beautifully inconstant arrangements of artists like Alex G or Sparklehorse, while echoing the songwriting of Neil Young and Bill Mallonee. Starting with the story of a person preserved as a Statue in their true love’s garden, the record traverses different settings like a children’s story – and ends in a place of loss, peace, and acceptance.
