Eleanor Friedberger's debut solo album Last Summer is in stores today! Stop by your favorite local retailer or digital music provider to listen to Last Summer all summer long.
NPR Music's David Brown gives a little advice on how to listen to this great album:
Last Summer is an album to let wash over you in repeated sittings, rather than pick apart track by track. It's best to drop the top, turn up the volume, soak in the moment and try to imagine what these songs will sound like next summer, and the one after.
LA Times Pop & Hiss streams "Scenes from Bensonhurst" and explains why Eleanor's album is the sound of the summer.
Eleanor Friedberger recently announced her summer tour dates which include the 4Knots Festival in NYC (formerly the Siren Festival). Watch her nostalgic new video for "My Mistakes," too!
Last Summer is available on CD, LP and digital download in the Merge store. Orders will include a limited-edition "From the Desk of Eleanor Friedberger" notepad while supplies last!
