BG118 | L. VALERIE – Arranged Marriage: “The material collected here in this short release was half written on the fly, half slowly gathered in my subconscious over several weeks at the end of 2017. Last year was quite the adventure in personal growth for me. The cover I created for this release was collaged out of a sewing manual from the 1960s that the generations before me might have put to its intended purpose.. but I named this record in honor of my independence from old ideas, so here’s to a better use.” –L. Valerie

Arranged Marriage‘ is a brief but poignant take on the stumble into adulthood.

What began as a modest lo-fi bedroom project, now after almost a decade in Sick Balloons has blossomed into a full fledged affair, spearheaded by a rotating cast of musician friends, siphoning moments from their full-time bands. Members of Trouble in the Wind, Duchess, and local stalwarts The Tractormen have all been folded into Scott’s nostalgia funded indie meanderings. After various shifts and turns, the band settled in with another amalgamation, coinciding just slightly before the release of the band’s fourth album,telescopes (on) parade,’ the last to feature founding member Glynnis Johns’ contributions on bass.

Post-‘telescopes’, the band acquired another north county multi-instrumentalist and comrade, Jesse Lee (from the Paragraphs), to round out the indefinite open door that is the balloons. Pulling inspiration from indie cult rockers such as Pavement, Guided By Voices and Dinosaur Jr, this fuzz-craving quartet pocket punk-informed pop gems in under three minutes or less, with equal nods to british & american shoegaze rock.

BG117 | Let The Machine Get It

Let The Machine Get It is a construct of musical ideas collected over and inspired by the varying terrains and unpredictable gear shifts of the last five plus years.  A lyrical knack for exploring darker truths beyond the light and humor in mankind’s darkest moments, Ariel Levine turns his external satirical candor inward.   It’s a conceptual story arc that encompasses the desire for something greater, the fear of losing ones connection to the world by an increasing dependence on technology, and the looming truth that is “wherever you go, there you are”.  LTMGI is set to be the most personally revealing collection of songs in his career to date.
