SEA OF BEES

Sea Of Bees is the creation of Sacramento indie-pop vocalist/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Julie Ann ‘Jules’ Baenziger. In her early 20s, she moved into Sacramento city and was discovered by producer, and in Tape Op Magazine publisher, John Baccigaluppi. With John at the helm, they recorded Jules’ five track EP ‘Bee Eee Pee’, which caught the eye of esteemed record label Heavenly, who signed Jules, and she set about recording her debut album. ‘Songs for The Ravens’ was the fruits of her labour and was critically admired across board, including in the British press, with heralding reviews coming from Mojo, Q and The Independent.

Jules new album, ‘Orangefarben’, is a classic break-up record that disobeys the usual break-up rules, where getting reacquainted with life in the single lane is a singularly maudlin and clothes-ripping experience. The simplicity spills over to the songs, which have one-word titles and a direct appeal to the heart. Spanning memory and metaphor, each track is a part of the story.

“Folky in some places, gauzy and ambient in others and twee as hell in still others, but beautiful throughout, and a potent reminder that emotional virtue is an artist’s most precious commodity. This one’s special, folks, let’s not screw it up.” -Kevin Bronson, LA Weekly

STEALING SHEEP

Stealing Sheep are a noisily drenched DIY-pop band from Liverpool. In the hazy shape of ‘psychedelic folktronica’, they play low-fi Casio & Yamaha synth’s that whirl in medieval patterns amongst 60’s style drones, along to hypnotic beats, spiralling whammy guitars and mystical harmonies. Last year they recorded their first single ‘I am the Rain’ in Abbey Road Studios, a joint release by indie labels Red Deer Club & Idle Fret on Limited 7” Vinyl, shortly followed by an invite to Rob Da Bank’s live lounge at Maida Vale. In the winter of ’11 they signed to Heavenly and released an 8 track mini-LP called ‘Noah & the Paper Moon’ on limited 12” and toured with Emmy the Great and Field Music. Watch out for their eagerly anticipated debut album coming in 2012.
