Contrariwise: Songs from Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass

by Daniel Hales and the Frost Heaves

Every poem in "Alice In Wonderland" and "Through the Looking-Glass" put to music--plus a few originals. A little bit Indie rock, a little bit psychedelic folk, a lot of other things, too. With viola. Music for battling Jabberwocks.
