SHE KEEPS BEES
the new York duo have delivered a stunning sonic vista of sparse indie-Americana dreaminess that Sharon van etten fans will adore.
Now, they are diving even deeper. A meditative & endlessly turning clutch of songs, She Keeps Bees' Kinship reasserts the band's elegant power in a stream of loss & regeneration. Death, birth, both personal & in reflection of Earth itself emerge through Jessica Larrabee's focused, empowered voice. With Larrabee & Andy LaPlant's first album in four years, She Keeps Bees peels away their distorted guitars & fills the void with hypnotic organ, keyboards, strings, a tight bed of drum grooves, & a direct lyricism full of with wisdom & intention. Fans of wye oak, Damien Jurado & cat power should check this out. “a peculiar, intense & quietly trippy affair, like linda perhacs on a slight downer” – mojo.
