ARTS Pick: Eleanor Friedberger

Eleanor Friedberger powers through her solo tunes with the same stylish pop she’s known for in the Fiery Furnaces. Eleanor Friedberger powers through her solo tunes with the same stylish pop she’s known for in the Fiery Furnaces.

Eleanor Friedberger may be best known as half of the crisp, jangly indie pop duo, Fiery Furnaces (currently on hiatus), but her sophomore solo effort, Personal Record, establishes her vocal prowess within a smooth mix of infectious production and a steady rock beat. Friedberger says that a love of music, and how it connects people, served as inspiration on the album’s tracks. “You can feel close to someone you barely know because you both happen to love the same record, or playing the same song 40 times in a row, not being able to rest until you own every song recorded by your favorite singer, or every version of your favorite song.”

Friday 10/11. $12-14, 9pm. The Southern Café and Music Hall, 103 S. First St. 977-5590.
