Great news that Eleanor Friedberger from Fiery Furnaces is due to release her debut solo album Last Summer this July. I spoke to her a couple of years ago around the time of their last full length I’m Going Away and she told me:
I think before I die I will make a solo record it is safe to say.
The album is out July 17th via Merge who are throwing around references to Sparks, Donovan, Procol Harum, Kath Bloom, Lô Borges and Todd Rundgren. Sounds like it will be an eclectic mix.
