-from Oakland, CA
-Billie Gale's atmospheric, dream pop explores the beauty borne out of devastating loss. Taking its name from lead singer Beth Garber's late mother, the band's enveloping shoegaze textures blanket Garber's emotive lyrical outcries. Even the rain-soaked sounds of her native Pacific Northwest get a warm bath of reverb and dreamy synth.
-from Sonoma, CA
-Zachary Carroll is a singer-songwriter from Sonoma, California. Towards the end of 2019, Zack put together a new four piece band that are ready to make their live debut.
Zack’s debut solo EP “Medicine Mouth” was released in 2018 is available on digital platforms and as a limited edition cassette tape by the Crazy, Ha! label.
One Minute Cassette Reviews describes the EP by saying, “Medicine Mouth is a collection of six songs that flow seamlessly from first note to last.” “Zachary weaves acoustic melodies with electric leads, along with mellow percussion in a DIY sensibility that adds up to a glorious yet brief EP. Minimalists decree that less is more, and with Medicine Mouth six exceptional songs leaves one savoring what we’ve been given. Essential summer listening.”
Zack’s previous release was a live recording called “solofi“. The performance was recorded at the HopMonk Tavern in Sebastopol, California in 2017, while he was opening for acid-folk artist Lee Harvey Osmond. The Modern Folk Music of America featured the live version of Zack’s song “Postcard” and highlighted it’s, “psychedelic, emotionally expressive guitar solo”.
Zack and longtime collaborator Kenneth Martin’s 2004 album “Psychedelic Tour De Force” was named as one of the top 10 Lo-Fi Albums of the year by the on-line zine Heraclitus Sayz!. Other records on the list were by such critically acclaimed artists as Sufjan Stevens and Iron & Wine.
