Boomkat Product Review:
"Big Blood is Caleb Mulkerin and Colleen Kinsella. The two have been making music together for around ten years. Today they live and make "stuff" at home in South Portland, Maine, usually between the hours of 8pm and 3am, while their daughter is sleeping. Since November of 2006 they have released a steady stream of CDr and cassette albums mostly on their own label dontrustheruin, as well as releases on Phase! Recordings, Peasant Magik, L'animaux Tryst, and Cabin Floor Esoterica. In 2010 Big Blood released Dead Songs, (their most widely available album) on Time-Lag Records. Previous to Big Blood Colleen and Caleb were members of Cerberus Shoal and are total fixtures of the Portland, Maine musical landscape. Micah Blue Smaldone is a singing guitar player, who lived and made music in the same South ortland home as Big Blood for 8 years before moving to the northern extremities of Maine. He has released four solo albums so far - Some Sweet Day (2004), Hither and Thither (2005), and Live in Belgium (2006) on North East Indie Records and The Red River (2008), on Immune Recordings. Micah has played in several New England bands and collaborated with folks like Death Vessel and Jack Rose. Big Blood and Micah Smaldone have previously worked together in the group Fire on Fire, who released a five song EP and an album on Young God Records titled The Orchard (2008). At the request of Immune Recordings, Big Blood and Micah have combined their efforts again to share this LP. Side A features two of Micah's new songs - "The Mule", charged with the tension between one's thoughts and feelings, and "tell It To The Sun", a calm reflection on the perils of cynicism. Side B features three new pieces by Big Blood centering around the idea of family past, present, and future."
