She Keeps Bees
She Keeps Bees
Considering how controlled the chaos is on Eight Houses -- the bands latest album, which is ruptured by riffs and rattled by rhythms without leaping straight off the rails -- it's tough to imagine a time when Jessica Larrabee and Andy LaPlant didn't finish each other's sentences, creatively and personally. But that's how She Keeps Bees began: with LaPlant bashing a borrowed kit (including a garbage-picked floor tom) atop a step-ladder and Larrabee directing the dark solo recordings she began after moving from Philadelphia to Brooklyn.

The band, which formed in 2006, have been compared to the likes of Patti Smith, The White Stripes, and Cat Power. The New York Times's ArtsBeat compared Larrabee to PJ Harvey, but added that "far from Ms. Harvey’s theatrical poise, Ms. Larrabee is loose, vehement and un-choreographed, jittering around the stage."

She Keeps Bees will release a limited-edition seven-inch vinyl record this summer, their first new music since 2014’s Eight Houses.
The Heavy Howl
The Heavy Howl
The east village of New York is home to The Heavy Howl. The band was formed by vocalist/guitarist Steven Williams in 2015 after joining forces with bassist Amanda Chessa, an old high school friend, and drummer Joel Frost through the all-too-rare Craigslist success story. Their self-released EP New Mistake, a selection of songs that showcased the groups penchant for catchy "low rock", led to the band teaming up with Velvet Elk Records for their follow up single. Recorded at Rivington 66 by Nico Chiotellis (David Waxman, Le Rev), "Ponderosa" is set to hit the streets in July 2017.

"Everything we track is live in the studio in two or three takes with as little overdubs as possible", Williams says, "we really push for the recordings to be an accurate representation of the energy of our live performances."

The Heavy Howl is:
Steven Williams - vocals/guitar (Peculiar Gentlemen, Badacaster)
Amanda Chessa - vocals/bass (The Old Fashions)
Joel Frost - drums (Tragedy)
