about

She Keeps Bees Washington, D.C.

She Keeps Bees have self-recorded and released music made at home since 2006. Their debut album, Minisink Hotel, was described by NYC’s Other Music as “the best album you’ve never heard." Nests, their second full-length, was admired by the Guardian as “sparse, soulful and defiantly retro.” Their third LP, Dig On, was praised by the BBC as "an album of fire, spirit, and sweat." ... more

Track Name: Owl
I will follow the sound of the owl
bless this house
bless my pillow
bless your pillow
desire
where you want to be
lovingly
you'll have to send a strong goddamn wind to get rid of me
you'll have to send a strong goddamn wind to get rid of me
every single piece
sandpaper and gum
leaning and propped
our arch undone
desire
where you want to be
lovingly
you'll have to send a strong goddamn wind to get rid of me
every single piece
my long way the wrong way
Track Name: Is What It Is
bow to the power
make sure it knows
how heavy it is
be not completely
consumed
do not surrender
is what it is 
it is 
it's that kind of life
you are worthy
i am worthy
put me in the middle
you better push a bit more
how we are now
do not surrender
is what it is 
it is
it's that kind of life
you are worthy
i am worthy
needed to have it happen
