biochemicalLike the natural world of plants after a dormant winter, Biochemical Characters routinely poke their heads up and sprout right around the time Homegrown season warms up. So far this year, these tillers of aggressive Americana — bassist Michael Gabler, guitarist Jay Sandal and drummer Jaywa Walker — have designated the song “Plant Some Beans” for the One Vegetable, One Community Initiative of the Community Garden Program and offered the single “Sunburn” as theme music for the Harbor City Roller Dames. They have also recorded a handful of tunes for a May 2014 release.
