Birthed out of the house show scene in blustery Olympia, WA, Globelamp is the moniker of singer-songwriter, Elizabeth Le Fey. More than a simple, flowery sprite, Globelamp has teeth, and her bite will sting just as easily as it soothes. Her shows contain more punk energy than drunk boys playing punk rock, and are about as unique as a vision of Syd Barrett's imagined manic little sister.
The songs that form her debut LP, "Star Dust," took shape as a lo-fi 8-track cassette recording experiment. Like the magic that surrounds a first kiss, their spark only grows more mythical with each listen. Le Fey embodies folk psychedelia in its rawest form, conjuring images of 60s mysticism, seances and free love. Throughout the recordings her voice is mostly layered and hidden, but once you have the pleasure of seeing her perform live, she proves she has the vocal prowess of one well beyond her youth. An outspoken feminist and activist, Fey has been called many things, by everyone from journalists to anonymous tumblr posters - she's even been called "Yoko" - and it won't take much digging to find out why. All that aside, Globelamp is a project with a vision, one of unity and passion for a better world.
Star Dust is set to be released on cassette through Gazelle Recordings on June 3rd 2014.
