Ba Da Bing Records are about to release She Keeps Bees new album. Singer/guitarist Jessica Larrabee sang on Roy Montgomery’s last album. And she also sang on the Sharon Van Etten record (wonder what ever happened to her?) But, in essence, we haven’t really have heard them before this their next record, Kinship. The album is coming out on Ba Da Bing in North America. Currently living in upstate NY, Jessica and Andy LaPlant have made the most stunning record of their covetous career. Kinship hides its intensity through a wall of skill, songs conveying minimal drama that bubbles just under the surface with resonant power. Larrabee’s voice absorbs the perspective of Mother Nature, singing about climate fears and earth’s future with a deep omniscience. Here’s an album that can only be made by a masterly group who can work together so intuitively that the songs emanate their effects, with a delicate approach to dynamism.

You can hear it on “Coyote” which is the first single off the record. It’s a song about Katie Lee, a musician/activist who recorded for Smithsonian Folkways and led a protest against building a dam in Arizona’s Glen Canyon.  The video for “Coyote” displays home films from Lee’s estate which show her love for the Colorado River.
