Bestselling artists on BB*Island this year: She Keeps Bees

Showing all 9 item(s) found.  

Simon Joyner
Pocket Moon

A singer-songwriter veteran with a long-established cult profile, Simon Joyner chose to throw a lot in the air for his latest album 'Pocket Moon', asking friend and collaborator Michael Krassner to source unknown musicians for him rather than relying on familiar players. The results are different yet completely familiar to Joyner’s fans, full of his cliche-free observations on the joys and cruelties of life. 

She Keeps Bees

Hamburg’s BB*ISLAND presents the first She Keeps Bees album in four years. Kinship finds Jessica Larrabee and Andy LaPlant joined by Eric Maltz and Last Good Tooth’s Kevin Sullivan and Penn Sultan. Larrabee’s brooding songs reflect family loss, political woes and the disenchantment currently facing anyone paying attention to our betrayal of the planet.

Rare Feeling

Debut album from hard working American indie-folk artist Mt. (Mat) Davidson. He's previously played with big names like The Low Anthem, and slightly smaller names like The Deslondes. On 'Rare Feeling' he's performing under the name Twain, and delivers nine songs of gentle, sun-kissed Americana. 

Alex Highton
Welcome To Happiness

The third LP from Liverpudlian singer-songwriter Alex Highton, and his first since 2014’s Nobody Knows Anything, is a nice wedge of off-kilter electro-pop ditties. Conceived alongside producer Jonathan Czerwik, Welcome To Happiness weds Highton’s touching tales to instrumentals reminiscent of Hot Chip, Penguin Cafe Orchestra and the more sober end of Beck’s discography.

The Burning Hell
Revival Beach

The Burning Hell’s Revival Beach is the band’s eighth album, and also their apocalypse album (seems to be a theme in 2017…), though you might not have guessed that from the sonics of the record, which is typically diverse and full of life. Frontman Mathias Kom leads us through waltzes, rembetika, garage rock and more besides, with happily kaleidoscopic results.

Ariel Sharratt & Mathias Kom
Don't Believe The Hyperreal

On Don’t Believe the Hyperreal, Ariel Sharratt and Mathias Kom take a break from their day jobs in The Burning Hell for some sharp wit and deadpan balladry. These charming acoustic arrangements and self-aware ditties recall Jeffrey Lewis at his most confident. Available on vinyl LP and CD from BB*Island, the Public Enemy referencing title should be enough to convince you.

Lady Lamb

Staying up til morning to record her first self-released albums, Aly Spaltro, better known as Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, writes songs that are clearly influenced by the night time. With her emotional lyrics and singing and gentle guitar playing, she has filled After with haunting songs that will stay with you. Even after it’s over.
