newmusicmonday #112:: Eleanor Friedberger



I've always liked Eleanor Friedberger of The Fiery Furnaces, a duo with her brother. Her songs on her solo album, Personal Record, are all collaborations with John Wesley Harding. Here's a Fresh Air [NPR] review of it by Ken Tucker.

The breezy track below and eye candy video might mask Eleanor's depth for some, but she does indeed make short work out of good songcrafting. There's an infectious Aubrey Plaza vibe to the music video that encourages repeat viewings...

A live performance of the track on Fallon is also below.
