Marian Call, my favorite geek songstress, has released a new holiday EP titled Yippee Ki Yay. Like most of Marian’s catalog, this release is an eclectic mix of tracks, eight in all, that emphasize her voice and witty writing style. The album opens with Marian’s acapella rendition of Ave Maria which I’ve had the privilege of hearing live. What follows is a delightful path through the beauty and comedy of Marian’s work. If you’ve seen her live in the last year you may have heard a couple of these. My favorites on this album are Princess Cupcake, which we got to sing-along in Dallas this summer, and the Die Hard–inspired Christmas in L.A. (Yippee Ki Yay). As with most of Marian’s work this album is family friendly with the exception of the title track, which does contain some strong language.
