Big Medicine Head Newsletter Vol. 8


Summer Love-Off Report 

The 2014 Big Medicine Head Summer Love-Off wrapped JDlast week. It was as a rolling boxcar of mirth, unapologetic affection, and vibrating American guitar strings. BMH was joined by Challenger 70, The Million Dollar Giveaway, and MurrayTheBand. We thank these fine bands for joining us, and the fine people of Sacramento, Benicia, San Francisco, and Santa Cruz. All good little buckaroos and buckarettes have gone home to bed now, safely tucked in and dreaming of next summer when we crank it up all over again.  

The Handsome Years  THY
The new album is here! The Handsome Years is a smoky portrait over a Nevada bar where Hank Williams leans into a deep conversation with Joe Strummer.  The album storms out of the gate with the infectious jangle of the title track and blazes a trail of Americana, pop and gospel tinged sonic fearlessness. You want this, people. 

Listen to the whole album at and remember: Big Medicine Head music can be found in all reputable online music stores, including ITunes, CDBaby, Spotify and Amazon.
