new music pls
Love Fridays - day of releases!
Probably my favorite singer. Male or female.
She is an unbelievable performer. First time I heard her she opened for Kaki King and it was a lot to live up to. Her first song was entirely a-capella and I was immediately hooked. Takes so much courage to stand in front of a new crowd, who is there to see musically impressive performance from one of the best guitarists ever... and not even play your guitar and just sing for 4 minutes. Like a mother singing a lullaby. It was brilliant. Made me want to cry, she has such a great quiver and dynamic range to her voice that tugs at you.
Ripely Pine is a great album I had to get on vinyl. "Florence Berlin" has been one of my favorite songs since it was released. And damn she gets her Jazzmaster to sound dirty sometimes.
She opened up for The Tallest Man On Earth a few months ago and I've been in love ever since
Both of her albums are fantastic
I forgot she dropped the Beekeeper and was like is this the same person
I saw her open for Juliana Hatfield and Evan Dando
New single "See You" up on Itunes/Apple Music. Album art says Tender Warriors Club, so maybe that's the album title. Hope we're getting a full album and tour announcement tomorrow/today!
"Following a six-week tour over the summer with The Tallest Man on Earth that took her across the country, including a packed show at State Theatre, Spaltro has spent the past few months between Europe and New York, creating new material.
'Kristian [The Tallest Man on Earth] lent me the keys to his home in Sweden. It’s miles from anywhere, and it has this tiny studio. I ended up in there for ten hours a day, writing and recording alone.' The solitary process seems reminiscent of the long, lonely hours Spaltro spent practicing in her Brunswick basement.
'I’d intended to write my third studio album, but the songs I was making were all solo acoustic tracks.' Following her creative instinct, Spaltro pursued this new direction, creating an EP entitled The Tender Warriors Club. She plans to release the new material in December before going on tour. 'I want to play some smaller shows, like clubs and ticketed house parties,” she says. “The kinds of places I started playing in Portland in the beginning.'
And the EP title? 'It just came out one day. I was talking to a friend whose marriage had recently ended. She was going to Paris alone to process it, and I told her, ‘You’re a tender warrior.’ I realized it’s a good way to describe most of the people I love. Powerful yet vulnerable."

The new single is streaming on Spotify now:
Lady Lamb preps new EP (listen to “See You”), going on living room tour
paging @Randall Mentzos you should apply for one of the florida dates
Emailed her today.
Trying to see if she wants to play at the gazebo my band busks at. Maybe she'll even let us open for her??
specifically says on the application no outside shows, so probably not
also "no openers"
this new "house show" thing is cool but also really really ridiculous. like just coming from a DIY scene this article makes them seem like the worst thing even though i know it's different Rock the house: Off-the-grid home concerts make musicians and audiences very happy
I became a fan this year and I am so glad. She was incredible live, and I can't wait for another tour.
Ah well Aly knows me by name by now, I saw her and spoke with her every time she came through DC before I moved down to FL. I went to go message her on Facebook and remembered a conversation we had after her first 930 club show (it was in the history), so maybe she'll make an exception knowing I was one of her earliest fans outside of New England and that I also have a serious music project.
The first address i put in the email was my own house so I gave the option
Dude. She's coming.
First living room show I've ever hosted. So stoked.
woooo yay, super glad it worked out buddy!
Yep January 17th already got my favorite promoter in town working on it
New EP is cool. Not sure I'd want a whole album like this but I like that she's changing it up sonically.
Seeing one of the living room shows tonight. Cant' Wait!
Will post a video soon
We will wait for it.
