Review: Lady Lamb – After

Each song is an extremely personal story giving the listener a look into Aly Spartro’s mind, soul and imagination. The tracks all begin by showcasing Spartro’s talented vocals, which dominate the album from beginning to end—a mix between soft and powerful, her voice can give you chills. The singer knows how to tell you when to listen and when to relax, to cringe and when to let loose. The first songs Vena Cava, and Billions of Eyes catches you with the peppy beats and changing paces, but once the third track, Violet Clementine, begins the tone changes. Sounding, at first, like the angry diary of a farmers daughter,  the course begins and the beat changes from a darkly acoustic aggression into a more mature scolding with electronic layering.

Switching between the seemingly young voice contrasted with a dark male voice, the song finally ends with a full collaboration of an instrumental climax leaving you surprised at the dark twist.

With Lady Lamb, you’re given an exclusive look into how young talent can take on a sound years ahead of her time. The raw honesty of a young miss finding her way in the world, which is a reflection of Lady Lamb herself provides a connection not only heard but felt. —The expressive truthfulness ranges from physical attraction, death, and uncertain sense of self and even to a rendition of her mother’s diary. Often songs begin in one element yet by the time the course begins the dynamic changes as Lady Lamb explores textures and tones that contrast another. Even if you know the change is coming it is far from predictable. Ranging from somewhere between, rock, pop, grunge, country, folk with a few electro notes, different genres are emphasized in each song and twisted until they fit into Lady Lamb’s world.
