A Fine Frenzy - Bomb in a BirdcageThere’s a charming theatricality to A Fine Frenzy (a.k.a. Seattle singer-songwriter Alison Sudol)—no surprise given that both of Alison’s parents were dramatic arts teachers and Alison took her stage name from a line in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. A Twitter phenomenon, with one million followers, A Fine Frenzy offers a contagiously giddy second album, full of joyous yelps, yodels, handclaps, guitar and electric piano, best heard on the breezy single “Blown Away” and the boisterous ballad “Stood Up.”
