Hope & Ruin
Dictionary Pudding are delighted to bring ex-Fiery Furnaces frontperson Eleanor Friedberger to Brighton for an intimate club show.
Eleanor Friedberger released her third solo album entitled New View on January 22nd, 2016. New View is the follow-up to 2013’s critically acclaimed Personal Record and is her first album as a signee to NYC’s seminal indie label Frenchkiss Records. PRESS HERE to listen to the album opener “He Didn’t Mention His Mother,” an exciting first glimpse at New View, driven by melodic guitar lines, Wurlitzer electric piano and Friedberger’s signature, witty lyricism.
It’s been two years since the release of Eleanor Friedberger’s sophomore solo album Personal Record, which made countless year-end lists including Rolling Stone, Consequence of Sound, Paste, Magnet, MOJO, Uncut, CMJ and more. During that time, Eleanor has kept quite busy – she live-scored unreleased Andy Warhol films alongside Bradford Cox and Dean Wareham, and sat in with the 8G Band numerous times on Late Night with Seth Meyers. Most recently, Eleanor released a new song, “False Alphabet City,” giving us a taste of what’s to come on New View.
New View signals a fresh beginning for the former Fiery Furnaces’ frontwoman. After living in Brooklyn for fourteen years, Friedberger moved to upstate New York, and the album reflects that region’s rustic charm. The songs were arranged with her backing band Icewater and recorded in Germantown, NY, live to tape, with producer Clemens Knieper in his converted barn studio. The result is an album that feels like an instant classic upon first listen, and is Eleanor Friedberger’s best record to date.
Having sold out her Spring UK tour, we are delighted to welcome Eleanor to Brighton for an intimate club show in the wonderful Hope and Ruin.
