Lady Lamb the Beekeeper's Antique Shop
Best Music Video: Antique Shop
Directed by Will Ethridge
Will Ethridge fell in love with Lady Lamb the Beekeeper's music after the two-person band from Brunswick played live on the Portsmouth Community Radio show Ethridge hosts. The 25-year-old Portland resident, who says he derives part of his creative inspiration from a loose filmmaking/music collective he formed with friends across the country, decided the boy-girl duo would be great fodder for a music video. The result is Antique Shop — a giddy romp along Congress Street, in a local apartment (it's Ethridge's, btw), and into a surreal world filled with apples, exotic animal figurines, and graveyards. The well-framed, colorful, eclectic shots reflect the lilting, stylized music, and both band members appear comfortable (not to mention attractive) seen through Ethridge's lens. Lady Lamb the Beekeeper might be "thinking about leaving the place that [they're] in," but viewers will want to stay a while in the world Ethridge created.
