Listing Detail Tabs

Personnel include: Edith Frost (vocals, guitar); John Hasbrouck, Emmett Kelly (guitar); Dave Max Crawford (trumpet); Azita (piano); Josh Abrams, Ryan Hembrey (bass instrument); Mark Greenberg.

IT'S A GAME, Edith Frost's first album since 2001's WONDER WONDER, finds the Chicago-based indie-rock singer/songwriter returning to the sparer sound of her late-1990s work. Frost's distinctively plaintive vocals are always at the fore, often recalling a more tuneful (and pre-pop-diva) Liz Phair. Wonderfully melancholy, wearily romantic, and faintly country, this 2005 album is easily on par with Frost's lauded earlier releases.

What the critics say...

Magnet (p.99) - "All but devoid of percussion, IT'S A GAME mixes Frost's voice right up front, making her sound more vulnerable and more confident than she ever has."
The Wire (p.70) - "[A] beautifully crafted collection....Frost's avant rock roots are impeccable..."
