A Fine Frenzy, aka Alison Sudol, has just released a new album, Pines (Virgin), and a companion interactive book, The Story of Pines. It's Sudol's first album of new material since 2009's Bomb in a Birdcage, and it introduces a delicate and cinematic new side to her music that she previously only hinted at. Drawing its inspiration from the redwood forests and dramatic landscapes of Northern California, Pines contains 13 exquisitely melodic songs that tell a musical fable.
Earlier this year, Sudol was a featured performer at the Sundance ASCAP Music Café, where she unveiled a couple of her new tunes, "Avalanches" and "Riversong," and talked about the inspiration behind her latest creative direction.
Pines was released on October 9th, 2012. Find out more about the album at www.afinefrenzy.com.
