"A fanciful collection of upbeat songs inspired by Catherynne M. Valente's novel, The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making! Guitar, cello, drums, flutes, fiddle and soaring female vocals guide this wild adventure."
Is it the Wonders that you're after?
S. J.'s 2013 release is inspired, from start to finish, by Catherynne M. Valente's Fairyland novel, The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making! Get ready for a wild ride on the back of a big red Wyverary, or a Wild Velocipede, or a Glashtyn-powered ferry, across such majestic vistas as the Worsted Wood, the Barleybroom River, and the Perverse and Perilous Sea! It is our fondest hope that you will return from these adventures better than when you left.
This physical pressing of the album includes a CD nestled inside a nifty Digipak case, a 4-page booklet, and lots of art by Chaz Kemp, Matt Hawk, and Elizabeth Jordan Leggett. The whole package was deftly designed by Kevin K' Wiley, whose graphic design chops have long been enjoyed by Sooj's fans.
