Live Video: Eleanor Friedberger

Even if you hadn’t caught her 2011 solo debut, Last Summer, you’d know at first listen to the vocals on her latest album, Personal Record, who Eleanor Friedberger is. Hers is the unmistakeable nasal drawl that characterizes the songs of The Fiery Furnaces, which Friedberger comprises with her brother, Matthew. As the two have taken time apart to pursue solo careers, Eleanor’s own path has led her to collaborate with a band of excellent musicians and with a lyrical partner in Wesley Stace, a.k.a. John Wesley Harding, who co-wrote (but doesn’t appear on) the new album. In touring Personal Record, Eleanor Friedberger stopped by KEXP recently to share some of these new songs of love and woe. Watch videos from the session here:
