Brooklyn-based DIY duo She Keeps Bees are currently on tour in the US, and are set to visit Chicago on Tuesday, October 2 to play the Empty Bottle. Maren Celest, Paleo, and Shaina Hoffman will act as main support for that show, and advance tickets are on sale. You can also RSVP for free entry, and in return will be granted a +1.
She Keep Bees' most recent release is a 7" that features the A-side "Counter Charm," which they put out themselves in July. "Counter Charm" is a great bluesy track, centered around moody guitar melodies. The B-side is a cover of the 1934 standard "Blue Moon," which guitarist/vocalist Jessica Larrabee went at in a stripped-down manner. Both sides of the 7" were recorded in a small restaurant in Paris on Halloween in 2011. You can stream the 7" at the bottom of this post, and we also have a copy to give away! Details on how to enter to win one are also below.
