Format: Audio CD
At just under 27 minutes, Nests is nothing if not straight to the point. Its most obvious strongpoint is Jessica's voice. She has amazing control over her vocals, able to simultaneously be fiery and reserved, seductive and vaguely crude - her voice is what breathlessly invites you into their dingy world. She ably plays a lot of similar vocal roles, different enough but all vaguely connected, from the punishing Fiona-Apple-esque siren on `My Last Nerve' to the faux-romantic, drizzly-sweet on the outside, bitter on the inside ballad of a woman scorned on `Get Gone', right through to the sparse, gospel ringleader of `Bones are Tired'. She plays `em all with ease befitting someone with rather more than an album and a bit to their name.

`Focus' begins with a brooding riff that we've all heard before, but if it doesn't command your attention, well, I can't help you because I fell for this foreboding jam hook, line, and sinker. `Gimme' is the most blatantly sexual song on the album, Jessica at her fiercest, sultry and intriguing as she growls, "Gimme gimme gimme gimme / Give it to me daddy". Annoying as some couple-bands can be, She Keeps Bees play it fairly cool - letting their chemistry and the inherent intimacy speak through the songs. `Wear Red' is the most old time-y jam, kind of a campfire song - little bit psychy, lot of blues. It would be good for any kind of camping trip, complete with whiskey, to some Joshua Tree-style psychedelic desert. `Ribbon' is as simple as it gets on this album, but the no frills approach mixed with the gospel-garage vocals is gold. It's the perfect summation of She Keeps Bees: intricate without being unclear, stark without being uninteresting, and ultimately, a band to keep around.

Brooklyn, girl-boy two-piece She Keeps Bees offer stripped-back rock `n' blues for the Americana generation. Jessica Larrabee's anything-but light vocal (I wonder where the band got there name) coats the lo-fi guitar and drum work in 4-Track Demos-era Polly Jean, and later, bluesier numbers, like album closer `Cold Eye', fight it out with the forgotten-about-but-still-great Mr. Airplane Man. The handclap percussion on the minimal, but affecting opener `Ribbon', introduces a persistent alt-folk/country feel to the quietest corners of Nests, a sentiment revisited with the decorative pedal steel climax of `Wear Red'. Larrabee and cohort could easily have upped the Stripesian quality of this record, either to early Zeppelin-aping or to latter-day high jinx, but there is an art to restraint and Nests is dignified as a result, just one sour-mash stomper away from a bee's knees-up.

I love this album, it is dark, catchy and different - some of my favourite tracks are Release and Gimmie. Saying that, I went to their concert in Brixton last month and even though the album is great, it pales compared to their live performances driven by the lead singers humour and stage presence. Buy the album and have a listen but use it as a warm-up to the real thing!
