A Fine Frenzy

Split the difference between Regina Spektor's least-odd moments and Owl City's most marketable and perhaps you'll end up on the same block as formerly-famously-redheaded twentysomething piano pop songwriter Alison Sudol. The stage name comes from a favorite line in A Midsummer Night's Dream, and she's prone to similar flights of fantasy in her music, which always seems fittingly otherworldly whenever her seductive cooing starts dissolving into Coldplay atmospherics. This is going to be all over Gossip Girl next season.
