Biography

San Francisco, United States (2011 – present)

The Bilinda Butchers are a group based in San Francisco. Formed by schoolmates Michal Palmer and Adam Honingford in the suburbs of Northern California, the group takes their name from My Bloody Valentine guitarist and early inspiration, Bilinda Butcher (last.fm). 2013 saw the addition of drummer Ryan Wansley, whose rhythmic sensibilities proved essential in further honing the group’s atmospheric, melodic songwriting. The group’s upcoming full-length, titled “Heaven” is set to be released on Orchid Tapes (Brooklyn, NY) and Fastcut Records (Japan) in July 2014. Heaven”, which follows two well-received EPs released in 2011 and 2012 respectively, is a narrative-focused record that is at turns both sprawling and intimate.

    Heaven is definitely better than Goodbyes, but I'm not quite convinced I enjoy it more than RLGD. I like the atmosphere, and although there are parts I'm still not entirely sold on (the voice diaries are fairly hit and miss, I honestly never have liked The Lovers' Suicide, and Heaven Holds a Place was just STRANGE), but as a whole it's still great and will probably get better with time.

    Lovely. Yeah the album is definitely very Japan-influenced for sure (Michal really loves Japan and he traveled all around this country when he was visiting here) which largely works with the overall atmosphere.

    I think its a pretty good release. there are a couple of songs that feel a little off, but overall i think the whole album has a solid tone and atmosphere. i'm pleased with it! [2]

    About the concept behind the album: "Heaven is the title of the diary written by Nakajima Ume, a young woman who lived in Japan from 1836 to 1864. It's entries catalog her catastrophic marriage to a cruel nobleman, and her later introduction to a young, idealistic poet whose expressions of sympathy inspire her to escape from her unfortunate circumstances."

    I was trying to wait to listen to this on my record player but I couldn't contain myself. I think this is a perfectly constructed album start to finish and I love it a lot. I can't stop listening to it.

    Heaven is pretty underwhelming and generic, I must say. I expected more from these guys [3] not a fan of the silly japanese diary voice over things either

    Heaven is pretty underwhelming and generic, I must say. I expected more from these guys [2] I'll say the same. I pre-ordered the LP, so no regrets, but I was expecting better.
