This is the Winter

Yearbook Committee

Release date: February 25, 2012

The kind of album that comes out of Indiana in February.

“For a minimal folk band, Yearbook Committee are quite the sonic experimenters, peppering their two records with bluegrass jams, ambient pop and even some straightforward folk rock songs.”

Operation Every Band

In addition to Christina’s vocals, accordion and guitar on her bandmates’ songs, “This is the Winter” features Christina’s songwriting on two tracks, “Battle Cries” and “Dangerous Bird.” You can read Christina’s song story behind “Battle Cries” here.
