After self-recording and distributing her music for six years, and operating on the local Portland scene – that's Portland, Maine rather than the hipper Portland, Oregon – Aly Spaltro released her first studio album as Lady Lamb The Beekeeper earlier this year. 'Ripely Pine' is a gorgeous indie folk-rock record, sometimes sparse and occasionally fuzzy, with some impressively anguished vocals – suggesting that all those DIY releases were very good practice indeed. If you've been getting into Waxahatchee lately, this could be your next big thing.
