I just found out about Lady Lamb the Beekeeper– when CoS posted her video cover of Cher’s interpretation of Dylan’s “All I Really Want to Do” (64) You can watch that video here. Her real name is Aly Spaltro and she’s tiny and young- but she’s got this big smouldering voice. It’s a little jazz, and a little folk. It’s got a bit of that gravel, too, that makes it sound like she’s already lived a life. She grew up in the SouthWest then moved to Germany for a while, and was touted as the best new band from Maine- so maybe she has in fact, lived a life. Her latest release Mammoth Swoon features rareties and old songs (which makes sense when you know she’s already super prolific and three albums deep). Seriously though, what am I doing with my life? Hah! Check her out here.
