Free Music Friday With Lioness And Billy & Dolly
Hi and welcome to another edition of Project Rhythm Seed’s Free Music Friday. This weekend is Sasquatch! and Project Rhythm Seed is there checking it all out. We will be reviewing many of the shows from this weekend and will post those reviews over the next week for your reading enjoyment.
Today’s Free Music Friday features two great bands. The first is Lioness from Toronto Canada. The track we have for you is called “They Clip The Wings Of Birds” off of their newest album, The Golden Killer. Second up is San Francisco’s Billy & Dolly. “Oh Yeah” is the track and it’s off of their new full length called Dally Bon Idyll. We hope you download, listen to and enjoy both of these tracks. We’ll see you next week for much more.
Offering up a more vulnerable side to their characteristically full energy dance rock, Toronto’s Lioness present “They Clip The Wings Of Birds” their latest single from The Golden Killer LP out now on New Romantic.
Formed in 2007 by bassist Ronnie Morris and drummer Jeff Scheven (former rhythm section for controller.controller) and vocalist Vanessa Fischer (ex-No Dynamics), Lioness released its self-titled debut EP in 2008, followed by Omens, Oracles and Signs Volumes 1 and 2, featuring remixes by Pilotpriest, Mansion, vitaminsforyou, Kids On TV and others. They toured across Canada and abroad with acts as diverse as You Say Party, k-os and The Cult. Known for their dark dance floor fillers, Lioness broaden the spectrum with The Golden Killer as it shifts between ecstatic dance and heavy rock moods.
Billy & Dolly
Billy & Dolly, the duet of Bill Rousseau and Dahlia Gallin Ramirez, have been a fixture in the Bay Area independent music scene since they first broke through in 2004 with their heavy, Moog-centric outfit, The Monolith. After five years of pavement pounding, The Monolith called it quits, but the duo kept close together, traded in the electronics for acoustic guitar and piano, and turned to the pop music of their earliest memories: Donovan, Simon & Garfunkel, and Dolly Parton to name a few. With the requisite stripping of layers and effects, the duo brought their vocals to the forefront, delivering heartfelt tales and arresting stories of love, loss, and everything in between.
Their latest single is the piano driven “Oh Yeah”, the second single off of Dally Bon Idyll that leaves off right where their first single “Gold” started, with catchy riffs and harmonious vocals. momentum, opening shows for the likes of Dr. Dog and Apples In Stereo, and gracing stages at venues around the city, from The Independent to their personal favorite, The Rite Spot.
