Lady Lamb the Beekeeper (aka 23 year-old Maine-bred, Brooklyn-based Aly Spaltro) released her debut full-length album, Ripely Pine, last week via Ba Da Bing Records. Presenting cinematic lyrics over complex structures with melodies running rampant, plus the intensity and confidence she portrays on stage, this debut album is a pure representation of Lady Lamb the Beekeeper. Following record release shows in New York, Boston and Portland, Lady Lamb (guitar/vocals) and band — labelmate Xenia Rubinos (keys), Marco Buccelli (drums), and TJ Metcalfe (bass) — will be touring the Midwest and Northeast in May.

In the meantime, get a further feel for Lady Lamb the Beekeeper and her continuous interest in all things pie via the new video for “The Nothing Pt II,” directed by Portland filmmaker David Meiklejohn and premiered this morning via SPIN. In the video, a mysterious person wearing a fencing outfit kidnaps people and brings them to a dark dungeon. Upon waking, the prisoners find themselves bound to a table with a pie in front of each of them, awaiting their uncertain fate, when the rogue fencer appears once again.

PRAISE FOR RIPELY PINE:

“Lady Lamb the Beekeper has created an indie rock ‘Pet Sounds.'” — Boston Herald

“‘Bird Balloons”’ transformative powers are totally undeniable; the six-minute song wrenches its way through about eight different movements, bolting and reeling like the Tom Verlaine-produced Jeff Buckley record, Sketches for my Sweetheart the Drunk, guitars seething like Helium’s ‘Superball’, violin marauding like Dirty Three’s Warren Ellis playing siren to lost ships on a stormy night.” — Pitchfork

“There’s an endearing theatricality at work in her songwriting, with mad breathlessness giving way to oases of calm . . . ” — Village Voice

“Anyone who has ever seen and heard Aly Spaltro on a stage can testify to her powers as a live performer. As Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, she is the unsettling combination of ferocious and tender, the kind of singer who veers from serene to unhinged within a turn of phrase.” — Boston Globe

“Plenty of albums mine youthful angst; far fewer offer any answers. Spaltro pleads and howls her way to the crux of the matter, finds her own way out, and leaves a poetic map behind for the rest of us.” — Consequence of Sound
