The Bilinda Butchers

A San Francisco, CA dream pop group inspired by the atmospheric sounds of My Bloody Valentine
And ever since you went away, I cry so hard. I hope and I pray that you'll come back to me just for one more day.
lyrics from Ume

The Bilinda Butchers are a dream pop group based in San Francisco. Formed by schoolmates Michal Palmer and Adam Honingford in the suburbs of Northern California, the group takes their name from My Bloody Valentine guitarist and early inspiration, Bilinda Butcher.

2013 saw the addition of drummer Ryan Wansley, whose rhythmic sensibilities proved essential in further honing the group's atmospheric, melodic songwriting.

The group's debut full-length, titled "HEAVEN," was released on Orchid Tapes (Brooklyn, NY) and Fastcut Records (Japan) in July 2014. "HEAVEN", which follows two well-received EPs released in 2011 and 2012 respectively, is a narrative-focused record that is at turns both sprawling and intimate.
