Lady Lamb the Beekeeper Shares “Bird Balloons” off Debut Album

Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, aka 23-year old Maine-bred, Brooklyn-based Aly Spaltro, is releasing her debut album, Ripely Pine, next month on Ba Da Bing. Following up “Rooftop,” one of Ripely Pine’s more accessible songs, we present the fierce and fiery style which truly sets Miss Lady Lamb apart with “Bird Balloons.” Lady Lamb’s unhinged performance style – intense guitar strumming, spitting out lyrics, melodies following a strange internal logic- come to the fore here; she careens from hums to screams within seconds, but always under artistic -control. Ripely Pine captures the wondrous magic of Lady Lamb the Beekeeper’s live shows, while keeping her songs’ stark rawness. No song shows this better than “Bird Balloons,” premiered via Consequence of Sound this morning. Take a listen below and experience Lady Lamb at her best and boldest.

“[Bird Balloons is] a tale of heartache which manages to be gritty and loud, soft and innocent – in other words, everything a guitar wants to be.” – Consequence of Sound

“she exudes unwavering cool throughout. Tip-toeing verses blossom into sweeping choruses that arrive like a tidal wave, teeming with bells and whistles. By the time we get to the exuberant finale, winding guitars splinter into a stuttering cacophony.” – Time Out Chicago

“a genuine force of wonder.” – Paste [“12 New York Bands You Should Listen to Now”]

“Spaltro writes stark, sad, passionate, often-very-long songs that veer from whisper-quiet to fearsomely screamed, and she isn’t afraid of framing them in moments of occasional musical grandeur.” – [“10 Bands to Watch in 2013”]
