"Friedberger keeps to the Furnaces' longstanding preoccupation with geography but narrows her scope in a way that heightens the album's sense of intimacy...From an artist whose mind and appetites have always ranged so freely, such a cohesive, uncluttered document is doubly revealing." - Pitchfork
Popfrenzy is pleased to announce The Fiery Furnaces’ talented front-woman Eleanor Friedberger, will be gracing our shores and playing a handful of intimate shows this summer.
Is this latest incarnation Eleanor’s Big Statement? Alone at Last? See What I Can Do When Big Brother’s Not Around? No, Eleanor Friedberger solo is definteily something more stubtle than that. Imagine someone kicking off their shoes, playing some vinyl for inspiration, offering collaborators a cup of chamomile tea and browsing her diary for subject matter. Her music contains a casual confrontation of the most emotionally direct Fiery Furnaces songs, plus a lot of snap, crackle, and pop.
