Edith Frost It's A Game on LP
Edith Frost has been called a chanteuse and a country torch singer - but her style of writing, singing and playing is all that and more. Since 1996, Edith Frost has honed her song craft on a series of Drag City releases - starting with a self-titled, home-recorded EP and a subsequent trio of acclaimed albums, each of which presented a unique setting, turning Edith subtly away from the country underpinnings of her songs. Since Edith's country' has many roots - country, folk, blues and soul, tin-pan alley and jazz - this makes the eclectic nature of her discography a natural thing. After a four-year canter through the wilderness, Frost returned in 2005's with It's a Game, an album about lost love, unrequited love, dreamy love - every sort of love. Play the game along with Ms. Frost and her gorgeous country-folk music emblazoned with the musical stylings of Josh Abrams (Prefuse 73), Lindsay Anderson (L'Altra), Azita, Dave 'Max' Crawford (The Mekons), John Hasbrouck, Emmett Kelly and Jason Toth (The Zincs, Manishevitz).
