Considering how controlled the chaos was on Eight Houses—the band's last offering, which was ruptured by riffs and rattled by rhythms without leaping straight off the rails—it's tough to imagine a time when Jessica Larrabee and Andy LaPlant didn't finish each other's sentences, creatively and personally. But that's how She Keeps Bees began: with LaPlant bashing a borrowed kit (including a garbage-picked floor tom) atop a step-ladder and Larrabee directing the dark solo recordings she began soon after moving from Philadelphia to Brooklyn.

The band, which formed in 2006, have been compared to the likes of Patti Smith, the White Stripes, and Cat Power. The New York Times' ArtsBeat compared Larrabee to PJ Harvey, but added that "far from Ms. Harvey’s theatrical poise, Ms. Larrabee is loose, vehement and unchoreographed, jittering around the stage.”

She Keeps Bees are touring fresh off the release of a new 7”, their first new music since 2014’s Eight Houses.

"An electric guitar is a terrible thing to waste, and AL Riggs has been guilty of it for far too long. His new album, "Radical Faeries", aims to remedy that. Simultaneously his longest album in actual time length and shortest in amount of tracks, "Radical Faeries" is the second chapter in the New South Trilogy starting with "Local Honey". Mixing the most crunchy and delicate sounds to come
from the Inconveniences in quite awhile, the songs range from topics such as home life, North Carolina politics, Patrick Stickles from Titus Andronicus, driving too far to work from home, and probably some more songs about birds. We haven't checked. Clocking in at over 70 minutes long, ending with a song lasting
almost a third of that time, "Radical Faeries" is the most well-rounded and energetic (not to mention electric) album in AL Riggs' too-fastly growing discography".
