It’s been a few years since Lady Lamb has popped up on our radar, but today comes news that she’ll be releasing her 3rd full length, Even in the Tremor. Through the first minute of the song, there’s little more than Aly’s voice and this pulse/beat, letting her voice and lyrics do the work. But, as we saw with After, her song’s grow with power and that emphatic burst at the 1 minute mark as the song continues to develop. I love how the song sort of dips and dives, recedes beneath itself then jumps back through your speakers; it gives off the aura of a live performance, which is something at which to marvel. Even in the Tremor is out April 5th via Ba Da Bing, with a nice little tour to coincide with the release.
It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Lady Lamb, or Aly Spaltrow, if we’re in the business of naming the lady behind the moniker. Her debut album,After, from early in 2015 was a statement piece that allowed us to marvel at her raw vocals and the unique blend of indie rock that she brings to the scene. It brings me great pleasure to spread the word that Lady Lamb has returned with a new track and is prepping a new EP that’s set to come out in about a month. “See You” picks up right where we left off– Spaltrow’s jazzy-yet-rough vocals punching you in the face within the first few seconds of the track while her nimble guitar playing fills out the rest of the tune. I’m especially digging the playful “woos” that warm you to the song and the repeated chorus that closes things out.
Tender Warriors Clubwill be out December 1st via Mom + Pop Records.
I had very high hopes going into The Moody Theater on Sunday evening. The bill was stacked; two artists who take the delicate process of songwriting and make it seem effortless through the tracks that they craft that stun us, two artists riding high off the release of statement albums in the progress of their career, two artists who embody just that word, affecting emotion and spirit with their voices and instruments. Lady Lamb opened the evening up and The Tallest Man On Earth brought it all together, both oozing soul from the stage.
Read on for my recount of how the magical evening unfolded.
So I know you’ll be tired on Sunday from staying out late at our very own Popfest, but that’s really no excuse to miss out on a great show the following evening at the Moody Theater. This Sunday, Sweden’s The Tallest Man On Earth and company will be gracing the stage to delight all with new and old folk inspired tracks that will surely melt your heart. Word on the street is that he’s bringing along a full band to flesh out these new tracks, but we’ll still be given the special chance to spend some time alone with this man and his brilliant songwriting. If you weren’t already convinced about going, (which you can do, as tickets are still available here) be swayed by the fact that another vocal powerhouse, Lady Lamb, will be opening. You can get excited for the show with these two tracks below, and just know that you’ll be forever regretful if you miss this night of pop and folk music centered around passionate songwriting. No pressure.
