I first heard about A Fine Frenzy ages ago, but just heard a few snippets of songs. I thought they sounded good, thought Alison Sudol looked like a cute hipster-girl, but didn’t explore her music any further than that. Then back in December I came across her Christmas album and fell in love with it, especially the song “Wanna Wish you Well.” Her haunting voice and compelling story-telling got me hooked and that’s when I went looking for more Frenzy.
I tend to go through phases with my music. I will want to only listen to upbeat songs for a while, or mellow music for a spell….it all depends on my mood. I have been pretty much listening to her latest album Bomb in a Birdcage on repeat for the last two weeks and I am still head-over-heels. It’s just the right blend of mellow and catchy songs that seems to be perfect for me at the moment. She also just seems like such a cool, fun girl…the kind you feel like you could be friends with, which always makes me more apt to listen to her music. Also she shares my birthday! No wonder I dig her music and style!
