Big Business is a band. They play heavy rock. On that, we can all agree. Things get tricky when you try to classify exactly where on the musical spectrum the dynamic duo’s racket falls. “I guess psychedelic heavy metal punk rock? I don’t know. People always say ‘sludge rock,’ which I always found to be lazy and kind of inaccurate; says drummer Coady Willis. A lot of our songs are fast, and it’s not like we’re playing a
half-assed Black Sabbath riff over and over again. That’s been the struggle of the band. We’re a band that doesn’t really fit into what everyone else is doing.
Willis comes from punk rockers The Murder City Devils. His co-conspirator, bassist/vocalist Jared Warren, spent time in noise rock weirdos Karp. Together, they formed Big Business in 2004. The LA-based outfit’s first three albums didn’t quite mesh with Hydra Head’s post-metal aesthetic, but their idiosyncrasies caught the attention of another iconoclastic outfit: The Melvins. They recorded three albums, an EP, and
various songs between 2006 and 2016 with that iconic grunge/doom/experimental act, all while maintaining their own identity as Big Business. Along the way, they picked up guitarists Toshi Kasai and Scott Martin, but on 2016’s Command Your Weather, they returned to their core duo format. They remain in that lineup on their sixth full-length, The Beast You Are.
Biglemoi is a bilingual Indie Rock band that combines elements of different musical cultures. Comprised of five members from all around the world, the band´s geographical diversity adds a welcome variety of both personal and cultural influences to their music. The project is led by a duo of lyrical melodic vocalists and instrumentalists from Nicaragua and Spain with a vast background in the traditional Nicaraguan song and contemporary classical music, respectively. Supported by hard driving guitar riffs from a lead guitarist with deep roots in jazz and blues, and anchored by the groove of a rhythm section from New Orleans, Biglemoi has a truly unique sound that connects with big audiences from all around the world.
These geographical elements and the different musical backgrounds of all its members, make thoughtful and unpredictable songs snapped together by sudden flourishes of technicality and creative arrangements. As a result, Biglemoi brings to the table a healthy mix of styles with the best rock and roll ingredients.
