Concert Preview: Eleanor Friedberger @ The Crocodile 2/9

Eleanor Friedberger is playing at the Crocodile Thursday night, February 9. If you haven’t heard “My Mistakes”, the lead single off of her debut solo LP Last Summer, listen to it above, and I’ll probably see you on Thursday.

You may know the Friedberger name from The Fiery Furnaces, Eleanor’s band with her brother Matt. The Fiery Furnaces have received plenty of critical acclaim over their history, but in the last two years, the Furnaces are taking a break so that Matt and Eleanor can work on some solo material. Last Summer is Eleanor’s first solo effort, and it is a fantastic record. It’s summery, melancholy pop music at its best. Friedberger’s live show is stripped down to the essentials. There are no bells and whistles – just pure songwriting and musicianship from Eleanor and a backing band of her close friends. Last Summer translates extremely well to the live setting. So grab someone you love and go see a summery show in middle of February just because.

To dangle one final carrot, here’s video for “Heaven”, also off of Last Summer.
