Bloodboy. The name may sound like a villain’s sidekick, though the protagonist and brains behind the LA-based project, Lexie Papilion, is everything but. Papilion’s punk-infused pop rests upon her striking, powerful vocals and often unpredictable stage presence. At once intimate and commanding, Papilion's music leaves you with the feeling that she’s not just here to save you—she’s here to save herself. Little more than a year after the release of her debut EP, which earned her a spot on Consequence of Sound's Five Rising L.A. Artists You Need To Hear, Papilion is preparing to release her debut LP, Punk Adjacent. Acting on her desire to escape the insanity of Los Angeles, Papilion retreated to a small cabin in rural Louisiana to find inspiration for the new record. While there, she frequented local venues and reveled in the energy of native zydeco bands. Her biggest inspiration from the trip, however, came from watching “Golden Era” television shows. “I fell in love Gilligan’s Island,” she laughs. “The aesthetic and the score, which is some of John Williams’ earliest work, are amazing. It inspired a more cinematic element than I’ve explored in the past.” After returning to Los Angeles with enough new material for “three full-length records,” Papilion enlisted producer Taylor Locke (The New Pornographers, Linda Thompson) to help bring the songs to fruition. As the name suggests, the resulting Punk Adjacent is an exhilarating record that would not have felt out of place at 1970s-era CBGB. Sparkling guitars, complex arrangements and Papilion’s signature soaring vocals compliment her unique ability to explore taboo themes in a way that feels simultaneously tongue-in-cheek and sincere. This new chapter sees Papilion continuing to push the boundaries of pop-rock music into exciting, uncharted territory. If it wasn’t obvious already, Bloodboy isn’t going anywhere.
Lone Kodiak is an LA-based indie rock band known for their vast, intimate and moody sound, passionate performances, and deeply affecting lyrical content. It is comprised of Dainéal Parker (the visionary), Daniel Alden (no one cares about the bassist), both founding members of emberghost, the Portland rock band that was in talks with Sony Music before tragedy struck the group, along with former We are Kings and Queens drummer Andrew Smith (the conscience).
