A Fine Frenzy celebrates the season with Oh Blue Christmas

on October 23, 2009, 10:45am

The indie/alternative collective A Fine Frenzy, led by Alison Sudol, has shown no signs of slowing down since the recent release of its sophomore record, Bomb in a Birdcage. In the spirit of the season, A Fine Frenzy has announced that they too will be among the many artists  choosing to add artistic flair to our favorite Christmas songs.

Teaming up with Target for this exclusive release, A Fine Frenzy’s delightfully unique six-song EP, Oh Blue Christmas, will be released on November 3rd. And the best part? Oh Blue Christmas features more than covers. In addition to three holiday favorites (“Blue Christmas”, “Winter Wonderland” and “Christmas Time is Here”), three original songs by Sudol and company entitled “Redribbon Foxes”, “Winter White” and, “Wish You Well” will also be included.

According to Sudol, A Fine Frenzy found the band expanding its sound with subtle accents from horns, mandolins, and pedal-steel guitars during the album’s brief recording session. Sudol admitted, “we basically put down six songs in five days, recording everything together around an invisible campfire; everyone picking up different instruments and playing them on a moment’s notice. There was definitely some holiday magic in the air that week.”

In other words, you probably won’t want to miss A Fine Frenzy this year, as the band tours the states in support of Bomb in a Birdcage. Besides, if you’re lucky you might even catch a live performance of one of these timeless Christmas tracks!
