Singer/bassist Melanie Radford (Built to Spill), singer/guitarist Lisa Simpson (Finn Riggins),
and percussionist Lindsey Lloyd (Tambalka) formed in 2018 out of a medley of mutual
admiration, a cover band called Mostly Muff and a unanimous love of heavy riffs and 90s
Riot Grrrl music. Eager to play music with one another, these Boise women created a sound
informed by 90s stalwarts like Pixies, Hole and The Breeders that communicated discontent
with the politics of their home state (Idaho) and ultimately received a lot of praise for their
debut album, including mentions in SPIN Magazine, NPR Music, Under the Radar, AV Club,
KEXP, Brooklyn Vegan, a conversation with Built To Spill’s Doug Martsch in The Talkhouse,
as well as mentions in other notable outlets.
Currently working on their sophomore album, Blood Lemon is eager to return at full force.
Evolving from the solo work of Abraham Pegg (vocals/guitar), Blix was started in August of 2021 at the Manor in Caldwell, ID with members Kizer Burchard (bass/vocals) and Sierra Duarte (drums). The vision of Blix is to reignite the ethos of classic punk rock with music that lives in the past, present, and future
Strangelily lives and breathes eclectic music, combining a captivating mix of alternative & indie rock, shoegaze, jazz, and modern soul. Their sound is equally as capable of making you swing your hips as it is eliciting a sigh of bittersweet nostalgia.
