Already on our first compilation Sessùn Song Collection with his band the indie-rock institution the Fiery Furnaces, singer-songwriter Eleanor Friedberger has now emerged as a formidable solo artist. Her debut album Last Summer is a thoughtfully crafted tale of memory and place couched in the organic pop of her 70s idols and instantly established her as a modern-day heir to the tradition of Donovan, Todd Rundgren, Ronnie Lane, and their ilk. In 2014 she released. Personal Record, her second album on Merge Records, which NPR called “the epitome of subtle, un-showy cool". New View, her third solo album, will be released in January 2016.
The fabulous mix she did for us is called « You Can't Make It Without Ever Even Trying » and combines some of her favorite contemporary female singers with favorites from the 60s and 70s, all strong voices that have inspired her.
