The Spirit of the Beehive

Debut The Spirit of the Beehive LP Available for Streaming & Download

The male-female lead combination of The Spirit of the Beehive possesses an oddly balanced juxtaposition between aggression and carefree psychedelia on the band's self-titled debut LP, which you can stream in its entirety below. It was recorded by ex-Dangerous Ponies/The Weaks' Evan Bernard and Chris Baglivo, and is another nice find by local indie label Ranch Records. Enjoy!


Cayetana Record Release Show at Golden Tea House Sept. 7

With their debut album Nervous Like Me set for release on Tuesday via Tiny Engines, the pop-punk trio of Cayetana headline a record release show presented by The Guild this evening at Golden Tea House. The tight-knit group of ladies lock into a unifying sound that touches on intimate moments and memories lyrically as the vocals express an ever emotive, unprotected side. However, they find a solid manner to measure levels of raw unfiltered snapshots and intense bursts of instrumentation, while also developing songs that capture an infectious relatable element. Punk rock four-piece Albondigas, who recently released a new single, “In The Eyes,” will serve as an appetizer. The moody, melodic pop-punk of The Spirit of the Beehive is also slated to perform as is New York power-pop outfit Chumped.

Sheer Mag on the Right Path at Golden Tea House Aug. 18

They haven’t released their debut 7" yet, which is scheduled to arrive next month, but Sheer Mag is a band that appears on the right path. Having caught our attention with a garage-rock vibe that assembles itself around vocals dripping with strong-willed attitude and guitar riffs that reinforce that emotion, the female-fronted group produces a sound that is equals parts catchy riff and groove-fueled yet still possesses that raw indulgent sensibility. It's grit with a purpose. Tonight, at Golden Tea House, they’ll be joined on the lineup by fellow emo/punk-pop hybrid The Spirit of the Beehive, who will also be coincidently releasing new material this fall. In the meantime, “Tulsa, OK” is an excellent teaser of a lo-fi power-pop explosion. Singer-songwriter Liam Betson (Titus Andronicus), who released a folky, penetrating album The Cover of Hunter, will also be joining the bill with New York rockers LVL UP. Golden Tea House, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info), 8pm, $5-$7, All Ages - Michael Colavita
