    Personal Record

    At a time when most female singer-songwriters perform as alter
    egos, Eleanor Friedberger is simply, refreshingly herself. And
    that's just the way her fans like it. Having spent the last decade
    fronting the indie-rock institution The Fiery Furnaces (currently
    on hiatus) with her brother Matthew, in 2011 she emerged as a
    formidable solo artist with Last Summer, a thoughtfully crafted
    tale of memory and place couched in the organic pop of her
    '70s idols. Instantly, Friedberger established herself as a modernday heir to the tradition of Donovan, Todd Rundgren, Ronnie
    Lane, and their ilk: warm, nuanced, timeless songs.
    No gimmicks necessary.


    The title of Friedberger's sophomore album is Personal Record,
    and it is, in a sense. Personal, that is. But not personal in the way
    of, say, a coming-of-age record, or a diary about the past, which
    Last Summer was. Many of the songs seem to be about love, or
    love lost, but whether any of the experience is hers or someone
    else's, she isn't saying. "It's not as specific a narrative this time,"
    she says. "There's a universality to it." So incisive are the lyrics,
    in fact, that Friedberger's bassist incorrectly assumed that two of
    the songs were about him. "I loved that," she says. "I want him
    to feel like the songs are about him. I want you to feel like the
    songs are about you."

    Last Summer

    Eleanor Friedberger is known for her work in Chicagos the Fiery Furnaces, a band she created with her brother Matthew at the turn of the millennium. Together they won a number of awards, sold out shows the world over and recorded nine albums. That experience, combined with the fact that the Fiery Furnaces arent breaking up, 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. Sparks, Donovan, Procol Harum, Kath Bloom, Lô Borges and Todd Rundgren too. Friedbergers phrasing is as good as anyones; even better, when the lines over and most other singers would leave it right there, shell throw in an unnecessary extra syllable.

    Remember (Awaiting Repress)

    Hot off the heels of their critically acclaimed Thrill Jockey release Widow City, Matthew and Eleanor Friedberger, the sibling duo that makes up the core of The Fiery Furnaces, one of the most prolific and unique bands in music, have put together a Triple LP live album entitled Remember which collects songs from their entire catalog and performances across the globe starting in 2005. The album captures the high energy, intricate complexity, amazing vocal acrobatics of Eleanor and the technical musicianship that defines a Fiery Furnaces performance. The Fiery Furnaces reconstruct and re-arrange their songs for each tour, going to great lengths to create versions that vary greatly from the recorded versions in tempo, instrumentation and arrangements. Featuring 51 tracks, Remember is being issued in this Triple LP vinyl version housed in a custom made old-style tip-on gatefold jacket with a pasted in flap to hold the third LP and a coupon to download the album in MP3. Limited to Only 2000 Copies!

    Beck Song Reader

    The now legendary Beck Song Reader--twenty Beck compositions previously released exclusively as stunningly illustrated sheet music in partnership with
    McSweeney's-will receive a long awaited traditional release, when Warby Parker/Capitol Records issues the Beck Song Reader compilation
    album, produced by Beck and Randall Poster, known for his music supervision work with directors Wes Anderson, Martin Scorsese, Sam Mendes and
    many others. Warby Parker will commemorate the release of Song Reader by reissuing limited-edition Carmichael frames created in collaboration with
    Beck, this time in Black Cherry-as well as a new edition of the Song Reader book, featuring two new prints from artist Marcel Dzama. The 20-track all-star collection features exclusively recorded versions of Song Reader charts by the likes of Jack White, Jeff Tweedy, David Johansen, Jason Isbell, Fun.,
    Eleanor Friedberger, and several more including Beck himself.


    The Warby Parker release of Beck Song Reader marks the first officially recorded incarnation of the project, which has already inspired interpretations
    from hundreds of musicians the world over. The record includes the studio-quality debut of songs previously only played live either by Beck himself or at
    one of the handful of Song Reader concerts staged over the last two years. The most recent of these was presented by the L.A. Philharmonic in
    partnership with McSweeney's and Warby Parker at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles on November 24, 2013. Described by The Los Angeles
    Times as an "expertly delivered and received night another big step in Beck's long, fascinating evolution," the show's highlights included Jarvis Cocker's
    interpretively danced "Why Did You Make Me Care? and Jack Black's borderline frightening "We All Wear Cloaks," the latter of which makes its recorded
    debut on the Beck Song Reader album.

    2. Fun - Please Leave A Light On When You Go

    Mexico

    For the past four years, Follow That Bird was one of the most buzzed about bands from their hometown of Austin, Texas. And considering how many bands are packed into that one city, that ain't faint praise. They were picked by Matador Records to be the lead single on the 2010 Austin-only compilation Casual Victim Pile, and snapped up enough accolades to have Bill Callahan have them support him on tour and ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead ask them to be the opening act on their full tour of the Western US last summer.


    After that...everything went a little awry. The band's label folded, taking with it the money promised them to record their debut full-length. But instead of seeing that as a major roadblock, the trio saw it as the perfect chance to forge their own path. With it came a new band name - Mirror Travel - and a chance to further strengthen their belief in the power of the music they were creating together. Or as Tiffanie Lanmon put it, We had to walk into the desert and do things our way.


    The desert Lanmon (drums) is referring to is the one that surrounds Marfa, Texas, where the she, Paul Brinkley (bass/vocals) and Lauren Green (guitar/vocals) decamped for two weeks to record with Gory Smelley (YACHT, Eleanor Friedberger, Grouper) at Marfa Recording Studio. It was just the isolating experience the band needed to bring their album Mexico into the world.


    The results? One of the most warmly engaging records you're likely to hear this year. With Smelley's help, Mirror Travel were able to more fully embrace the dreamy garage pop sound that got them to where they are today.


    Opener Sands may give the impression of a band lost in a shoegazer wilderness, but let the punchy Nuggets-style bassline and reverb-slathered drive of the next track I Want You To Know shove aside all those preconceptions. The rest of Mexico flows by with the same steady gaze and attack, with occasional upticks and dips in tempo and temperature.


    Looked at as a complete package, Mexico is a document of a trio who, as their name change would suggest, are taking themselves more seriously and looking at the road ahead with much more purpose and intent. Like the long drives between tour stops and the seemingly endless desert that helped inspire these songs, you're meant to drink this album in slowly, steadily, and with your eye fixed on the horizon.
