SASAMI (aka Los Angeles based musician Sasami Ashworth) released her self-titled debut album, SASAMI, back in March via Domino. Now she has surprise-released a new holiday-themed EP, lil drmr bb, that includes the new song “It’s You” and covers of Christmas classics “Little Drummer Boy” and “Silent Night.” The EP was recorded in Los Angeles by Ashworth and Kyle Thomas (aka King Tuff), and mixed by Andrew Sarlo. Check out the full EP below, followed by her upcoming tour dates and the EP’s cover art.

Read our Pleased to Meet You interview with SASAMI.

When the album was announced she shared a self-directed video for the new song “Jealousy,” which was one of our Songs of the Week. Then she shared a video for another new song from the album, “Free.” The song featured backing vocals from Devendra Banhart, although he’s not in the video, and was also one of our Songs of the Week. Then Ashworth shared a video for “Morning Comes” that featured her grandmother hosting a cooking show where she teaches you to make kimichi. The album includes the previous singles “Not the Time” and “Callous.”

Then in August SASAMI shared a brand new song, “Take Care,” via a self-directed video for the cut that features Ashworth on a row boat, burning things in the desert, and in a smashed up car. It was one of our Songs of the Week. At the same time she also shared a new version of SASAMI‘s “Free” featuring backing vocals by Tim Presley of White Fence (Devendra Banhart sang on the original version).
