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.
 
To get a further feel for Lady Lamb the Beekeeper and her continuous interest in all things pie watch  “The Nothing Pt II,” video, directed by Portland filmmaker David Meiklejohn.
 
The album comes as close as possible to conveying the intense majesty of her live shows. And, much like her live performances, a narrative breathes through the record’s progression. The album opens with urgency and anger, settles into reconciliation and reciprocation, and ultimately reaches towards resolution, realizing infatuation leads to a loss of self; instead, embracing one’s own strengths is the most powerful thing of all.
 
Lady Lamb The Beekeeper presents a mantra of individuality and Ripely Pine proves she has a lot to say for herself and certainly doesn’t need anybody’s help to do it.
PRAISE for RIPLEY PINE
 
"'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
