Eleanor Friedberger is known for her work in Chicago's the Fiery Furnaces, a band she created with her brother at the turn of the millennium. Together they've won awards, sold out shows, and sold tons of albums. Her experience being in a band has inspired her to make her first solo record, Last Summer. In the music, you will hear the casual confrontation of the most emotionally direct Fiery Furnaces songs, plus a lot of snap, crackle, and pop. In fact, in these songs made of memories, you will hear the future. Friedberger's phrasing is as good as anyone's; even better, when the line's over and most other singers would leave it right there, she'll throw in an unnecessary extra syllable – a "yuh" or an "er," or even an "oh oh." With Last Summer, Eleanor may well be telling us about last summer, or various summers, or even… the last summer there will ever be.
