My latest lady-crush is Sea of Bees, a one-woman band from Sacramento. Sea of Bees (real name: Jules) is on tour with Smoke Fairies in the UK right now, and her off-kilter storytelling folk will be a fine partner for the Smokes’ creepy acoustic folk-blues.
“Marmalade” is taken from the forthcoming Songs For The Ravens album, and is at the slightly rockier end of Sea of Bees. I grabbed this track from her website, and if you head there you can find more musical goodies including her 2009 EP. She’s also a good follow on Twitter. She’s a very witty and funny lady.
UPDATE: My boyfriend got heroically drunk and “interviewed” the equally inebriated Sea of Bees. And recorded it. You can hear it, uncut, here:
Marva Whitney, along with Lyn Collins and Vicki Anderson, was one of the singers with the James Brown Revue. She’s one hell of a belter in her own right, and released a string of stormin’ 45s, including this funkity-ass slice of funk in 1969.
