Time for something fun.
Her name is Alison Sudol, but she’s best known as A Fine Frenzy. I picked up her first album, “One Cell in the Sea,” solely because I thought it looked like an interesting listen. And it was. Her third album, “Pines,” is out now; I have yet to get it.
But it was her second album, “Bomb in a Birdcage,” which made me a real fan. That is such an awesome album! Practically perfect in every way, every single song. Highly recommended.
And this particular song never fails to make me happy. No matter how down I feel, it just makes me happy. It’s the lyrics, I think. Everything else is just bonus, but it’s the lyrics. Who hasn’t ever felt this way?!? Her voice as well on this song – you can tell she’s just having so much fun with it. And the chorus, especially one line, makes me so giddy and gleeful. It’s fantastic!
I love this song. And I hope you do, too.
From her 2009 album “Bomb in a Birdcage,” this is A Fine Frenzy. The song is called “Electric Twist.”
(It isn’t that I’m against music videos. Music videos are fine. In fact, I highly recommend you check out the video for this particular song, because it’s sorta retro and so fun! But I’ve found that, over the years, I just prefer listening to the music instead of watching it. That’s all.)
