We have been big fans of She Keeps Bees here at NYCTaper for a few years. The duo have appeared on the site a good half-dozen times and we have not been shy with superlatives. The combination of Andy’s precise but aggressive percussion and Jess’s bluesy guitar is the perfect compliment for that voice — Jess’s innate ability to draw out complex and wide range of emotions in each and every song. At Glasslands last week, the band drew an impressive crowd for the dead week pre-Labor Day. The fans were also quite rambunctious as you can hear on this recording. We were encouraged to hear that She Keeps Bees is finishing up recording a new album, and several of those new songs were featured during the set. The band is seeking the right label to distribute the album, and we hope to see it released this Fall. We are streaming “Counter Charm”, which was the band’s 2012 single release.

I recorded this set with our installed rig in this venue and the sound is quite excellent. Enjoy!
