Bag of Kittens, featuring Allyson Seconds & Anton Barbeau

The Shop has just gotten in a few copies of Allyson Seconds' Bag of Kittens, her new collaboration with Anton Barbeau. If you are a fan of Marti Jones or Sam Phillips, you should check this album out. The arrangements are beautifully done and even if you're already familiar with tracks like "Dig My Pig" and "On A Bicycle Built For Bicycle 9," you will hear them in a whole new way. This is a lovely album that should lead to Anton being taken more seriously as a songwriter, and Allyson, a Sacramento Music Award-winning vocalist, is a first-class interpreter of his work. You can preview a few songs at http://www.myspace.com/bagokittens , and if you're in Northern California, there are concert dates listed there as well.
