Allyson Seconds’ Unleashes Her Bag of Kittens

The Alchemist

Just before Thanksgiving, Allyson Seconds unleashed the 2020 re-issue of her 2009 debut album Bag of Kittens. Originally produced alongside indie-pop songwriter and performer Anton Barbeau, the re-issue features the original fourteen tracks (available on all major platforms) as well as four more songs that Seconds and Barbeau collaborated on, which are only available on the official 2020 download or CD re-release through her California-based record label, Big Stir Records. We decided we would share “On A Bicycle Built For Bicycle 9,” which features a great use of space and instrumentation along with an incredibly fun title.
