Eleanor Friedberger @ The Parish - 6/21/2013
Diving into June's Personal Record, [Eleanor] Friedberger grounded elated jangle-pop with an effortless alto on songs like set opener "I Don't Want to Bother You." Energy spread through the crowd as up-tempo songs loaded the front part of the set.
Even Friedberger's tour mates weren't immune: during Last Summer favorite "Roosevelt Island," two TEEN sisters came bounding out of the greenroom arm-in-arm and wedged themselves against the stage. It felt like a safe space for your goofiest dance moves, scripted by Friedberger's quick-fire pacing. [Austin Chronicle]
Fiery Furnace Eleanor Friedberger released her new solo album, Personal Record, earlier this month (6/4) via Merge, and has been supporting it on a tour with TEEN that came to Austin for a show at The Parish last week (6/21). Pictures from the show are in this post.
Eleanor ran through a bunch of the material on her new album, in addition to cuts from her 2011 solo debut, Last Summer, and a cover of Cass McCombs' "County Line." You can watch a video of that cover and check out more pictures from the show, below...
