Better late than never, Edith Frost enters the 2020 race!  This new song puts her elliptical torch song phrases to political ends with breezy lightness, focusing on the positive action of refusal: "Make up a little sign....though you hate the argument, put yourself on the line". 
"Little Sign" was recorded in spring 2020, produced at The Loft - Chicago by Mark Greenberg, featuring Sima Cunningham and Rian Murphy as witness for the proceduction.

Edith says: 
I wanted to make a song about how much I fucking hate Trump and what he's done to America. The last four years have been a hellride. It's beyond me why anybody wouldn't see him the way I do, as an evil, malicious black hole of greed and ego. Fuck that guy!!

But anyway, that wasn't going to be a very good song, so I wrote this one instead. It's a little more oblique and uplifting. It focuses less on the misery and hatred, and more on the optimism we can hold on to. We have the power to change things by using our voices and our VOTES. Make a sign to carry around, make a phone call to your representative, make a promise that you'll vote for someone better.


Let's hope the worst is upon us now, and better days are coming very soon. Fingers crossed.
