Juju Sophie I first discovered She Keeps Bees when we supported them in my old band Little Fish. We were in Wales upstairs in a shitty pub and they were incredible. I loved the simplicity of their set up: drums and guitar, bam. Jessica's vocals are extraordinary, effortlessly oozing with cool, rich tones of life that articulate sincerity. You feel that she has lived what she is singing and I love that. They were selling their new record Dig On at the time. I bought it. I play it often. Favorite track: Stutter.

She Keeps Bees New York, New York

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: Pile Up
I wanna recount all the gifts I gave
I wanna recount all the gifts you gave
take em to a field and pile em up we're gonna see which one is bigger bigger than the other
I got my daddy's eyes that refuse to see me cry
take me to the field you can lay me down you can burn me I'll never let you hear a sound
so lay your stones all around me even they can't hold on to me
the reasons you're all alone you keep believing you could take it all
Track Name: Stutter
I won't break
I won't even stutter my feet
I can take it baby
you can bet on me
red red lips and I got grass on my knees
you're the smart one baby you tell me
can you tell me
why you want me back
don't think I can't see
what your twisted tongue is letting me see
both know we've changed
our hearts into silent thoughts
I was sent to heal you
soothe the seed of pain but
you got what you needed and
maybe that was good enough for me
I can't afford to take you back
Track Name: Take Me Down
I ain't ever coming back
I ain't ever coming back to you
you took all you need so baby why you treat me so mean
get up off your knees
take me down take me down to the sea
let the water take me over
I'm the sailor the sea's daughter
take me down
take me down to the sea
