New 7" from Brooklyn's She Keeps Bees

Featured way back on Popakazooza Volume 1, She Keeps Bees is another of my favorite two piece guy/girl Brooklyn beat generators.  She Keeps Bees has been steadily gaining steam since Singer-guitarist Jessica Larrabee’s self-released her chilling solo album Minisink Hotel back in 2006, with drummer Andy LaPlant they have been recording their music at home and self releasing soulful gritty rockin’ blues at a pace of one amazing release a year, after year. Their newest is a 7” collaboration featuring cellist Gaspar Claus on both songs and Stephane Milochevitch & Emma Broughton adding harmonies on Blue Moon, recorded in Paris, where they set up a makeshift studio in a small restaurant, late on Halloween night.
The low growl you hear throughout the song isn't electric guitar. It's actually a processed cello, played by the experimental artist Gaspar Claus. "Gaspar added the spectral cello part that swells in and out during the entire track," says Jessica Larrabee. "[He also played] the more conventional arpeggiated line at the end. It was such a pleasure working with him. He is an amazing musician and hilarious person."
