Heavens to Betsy, or in this case Aly Spaltro! Spaltro, the singer-songwriter better known as Lady Lamb the Beekeeper has just released "Ripely Pine" (Ba Da Bing Records) and the entire world seems to be in love with it, present company included. I'm giving away a SIGNED copy. We'll get to that in a minute.
Reviews from across the country are pouring in and heck, LLTBK was even interviewed by Audie Cornish on NPR's "All Things Considered" on Monday, Feb. 25. Check it out: npr.org/2013/02/25/172890601/from-behind-the-counter-lady-lamb-the-beekeeper-emerges
Did I mention she's from Maine? These days she lives in Brooklyn, NY but she'll always be one of ours.
Lady Lamb also just made an incredibly neato video to the "Ripely Pine" song "The Nothing Pt. II"

Aimsel Ponti has been obsessed with - and inspired by- music since she listened to Monkees records borrowed from the town library when she was six years old. She's a huge fan of the local music scene and interviews an act every week for "Making Noise" which runs in the Press Herald GO section. You'll also find her out and about absorbing live music like a sponge and roaming around local record shops and flea markets.
