Stream Lady Lamb the Beekeeper

More than anything, Lady Lamb the Beekeeper (aka Aly Spaltro) has 20,000 second-hand DVDs to thank for her first album. Despite being recorded at a proper studio in her recently adopted home of Brooklyn, Ripely Pine showcases songs conceived during her tenure at Bart’s & Greg’s DVD Explosion in Brunswick, Maine. Little did customers know, the same store they’d drop off their Transformers movies was providing inspiration for future musical recordings

During those nightly creative spells after working her shift, Spaltro’s music brought raw expressions of her lyrical thoughts. Anger, confusion, love, happiness, and sadness reigned, and the songs ran rampant, with little form or structure. Isolated for those many hours, this is how she taught herself to write music and sing. She had only two outlets for giving out her music: Bart & Greg’s and a record store next door, so she gave herself a band name. She would arrange her CDs on the counters of these two shops as free offerings, and seeing how she was often the employee at the register, didn’t tell people it was her music.

Lady Lamb the Beekeeper’s debut album, Ripely Pine, is out February 19th on Ba Da Bing! Records.
