Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

THE BEES

Every Step's A Yes

2011-10-30

Previously known as Band of Bees, Uk band, The Bees, has made a lovely album with its fourth release, “Every Step’s A Yes”. Featuring such unusual instruments as sitar, mandolin, jaw harp, and celeste, The Bees have fashioned music that’s a mellow departure from their previous releases. The layered vocal harmonies and occasional string flourishes remind me of old Pink Floyd (think “Obscured By Clouds). This psych-folk disc seems to me to be the logical product of the band that once cited the mind-altering Peruvian plant, ayahuasca, as an influence. All in all, this is pretty, well-produced stuff.
