Eleanor Friedberger: Last Summer

Easy listening pop from The Fiery Furnaces solo venture

After nine albums Eleanor Friedberger, half of the Chicago pop-rock duo The Fiery Furnaces, has spread her wings. Unfortunately the best of the album comes in the last two tracks, arriving after eight indistinguishable tracks.

Vocally reminiscent of Natalie Imbruglia, whilst musically akin to KT Tunstall or Sarah Blasko, Last Summer fails to find its niche. With names like Laura Marling already fronting the alternative-female music genres, is there any room for Friedberger’s mediocre take on this field? Last Summer is easy to listen to and just as easy to forget.
