I first saw Lady Lamb perform a stripped down, raw, solo-set at the Moore Theatre in 2015 when she opened for The Tallest Man on Earth. I remember feeling floored at the storied vulnerability that ripped through the acoustic dreamland that is the Moore Theatre when Lady Lamb began sharing tracks from her 2015 album After. Lyrics from “Sunday Shoes” made me shed a tear “you scuffed your sunday shoes when you leapt the fence/to save your sister from those hungry wolves/but you fell the wrong way yeah you broke your leg/and now the animals are turning their heads” and “Billions of Eyes” is a true #bop.
Lady Lamb (aka Aly Spaltro) released her third studio album, Even in the Tremor, last month via Brooklyn-based Ba Da Bing Records. It might just be me, but 2018/2019 seems to be the year of music that explores the incredible messiness of being human while simultaneously appreciating and empathizing with the small details of everyday life. Even in the Tremor is no exception. Tenderness is weaved through heart wrenching gravitas in the likes of “Deep Love”, “Little Flaws” and “Prayer of Love” and the horns at the end of “July Was Mundane” truly send me through the roof.
Opening for Lady Lamb is Brooklyn singer-songwriter Katie Von Schleicher and Alex Schaaf who also joins Spaltro’s backing band.
