Blood Lemon

Music

Boise, ID

When Boise three-piece Blood Lemon — singer/guitarist Lisa Simpson (Finn Riggins, Treefort Music Fest), singer/bassist Melanie Radford (Built to Spill, Marshall Poole) 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 Kim Deal and 90s Riot Grrrl music, they had no idea they’d be writing a perfect soundtrack to kick off 2021. What they did know was that they were eager to play music with their fellow women; they wanted a sound informed by 90s stalwarts like Pixies, Hole and The Breeders; and they were ready to get political. Blood Lemon has received tons of praise for their debut, including mentions in SPIN Magazine, 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. “Black-Capped Cry” and “Whistleblower” were both featured by NPR Music on their New Music Friday playlists.
