The Spirit of the Beehive





New The Spirit Of The Beehive LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Hypnic Jerks is the latest album from The Spirit Of The Beehive, and is out now via Tiny Engines. Hovering between a laid-back, melodic cloud and dramatic shifts of intensity, the band finds a mechanism to bring down tensions without eliminating them. An eerie, warped element hangs in the periphery, creating a mesh between odd, groovy precision and gritty abruptness. You can catch The Spirit of the Beehive with Boston's Pile on Thursday, October 18 at The First Unitarian Church.





New Track: "Can I Receive the Contact?" - The Spirit Of The Beehive

“Can I Receive the Contact?” is the lead single from The Spirit Of The Beehive’s forthcoming album Hypnic Jerks, due out September 14 via Tiny Engines. Keys lift in an emerging manner, before the band’s raw, lo-fi, experimental energy takes hold. It feels like witnessing a dream-state that is part floating fantasy, before shifting with urgency as the song’s inquisitive title is continuously repeated. The band is set to go out on an October-long tour with Pile, and will be making a stop home on Wednesday, October 18 at the First Unitarian Church. (Photo by Emily Burtner)





New Music Video: "Pianos, Heavy Instrument"/"Snow on the Moon" - The Spirit of the Beehive

Together with visual artists/filmmaker/photographer Craig Scheihing, psych outfit The Spirit of the Beehive has provided us with a woozy documentation of their adventures on the road, soundtracked by "Pianos, Heavy Instrument" and "Snow on the Moon," songs sequentially found on band's latest LP Pleasure Suck (Tiny Engines). The former goes along with the band members on a scenic, hillside hike, before melding into the latter, where a lazy, sun-kissed day at the beach is eventually interrupted by the perpetual motion of life on the road. The Spirt of the Beehiove will be continuing their heavy 2017 touring schedule with a nearly month-long stint opening for The Districts this summer, but before they leave home, you can catch the guys and gal this evening at Spruce Street Harbor Park's Waterfront Sessions with Permanent Body.

Weekend Warrior, April 28 - 30

There is way too much going on this weekend in Philly, and it looks like the weather is going to be fan-fuckin-tastic! So what’s on our agenda? Psych outfit The Spirit of the Beehive have been on an extensive tour of the U.S. for the past month and a half, bringing the wonderful weirdness of their LP Pleasure Suck (Tiny Engines) to the masses. They’ll be returning home this evening to finally celebrate the record’s release among friends at Everybody Hits, where they’ll be supported by Three Man Cannon, YT, and Old Maybe. Laser Background will also be holding an album release party of their own for Dark Nuclear Bogs this Saturday night with good pals Norwegian Arms, Breathers, and YCIB at Baird Mansion Atrium.

Get Better Fest 4 will be taking place over the weekend at the First Unitarian and PhilaMOCA, as well as Glitter Galaxy. The two-day event taps the talented and socially conscious Philly punk community to raise donations this year for the Trans Assistance Project, Youth Emergency Service, and Women Against Abuse. At the showcase, you’ll find Deli faves +HIRS+, Thin Lips, Radiator Hospital, Amanda X, Soul Glo and many more (view the full lineup HERE) raging out for good causes. And of course, there is the NFL Draft going on at the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, and besides seeing some future NFL millionaires, you’ll be treated to performances from rising stars in the local music community such as Strand of Oaks, The Districts, Tunji Ige, Chill Moody, and Good Old War. So get out, and take advantage of living in such a rad city! - Alexis V.

New The Spirit of the Beehive LP Available for Streaming

The Spirit of the Beehive just premiered its long-awaited LP Pleasure Suck, which officially comes on March 24 via Tiny Engines, but you can stream it now over at Stereogum. The album shifts unpredictably from warm melodies to wafting, textured soundscapes that morph into chaotic, dense walls of noise, and back again without notice, as a dreary, dark cloud hangs over the disenchanted, dual guy-gal lead vocals. It's a mind-warping collection of tracks that yearn for you to dig deeper. The band is currently on an extensive U.S. tour that will wrap up with a hometown release show on Friday, March 28 at Everybody Hits.
