Jules Baenziger records under the name Sea of Bees, and her 2009 debut album, Songs for the Ravens, was a positive stunner, the kind of fully realized work that even veteran songwriters can only dream of pulling off. After such an auspicious start, it makes sense that Sea of Bees' second full-length, the oddly titled Orangefarben, might initially seem to suffer from a sophomore slump. (The bill's headliner, Jason Lytle of Grandaddy, maybe knows a little something about slumps, Sophtware or otherwise.) As it turns out, Bee's Orangefarben is a strong and lovely record, with melodies just as ravishing as those on Ravens and perhaps a greater sense of confidence. Built on a bed of palliative, soft rock, Baenziger's charming, assured, folk-flecked melodies both comfort and exhilarate. NED LANNAMANN
