Hear the new Matthew Friedberger!
Here in the states, we're mainly counting the days until Tuesday when we can buy the new Lily Allen record. When that is over, though, we'll need something to occupy our precious time, and Fiery Furnace Matthew Friedberger is just the man to do it. After all, his (even for him) ultra-ambitious double album Winter Women/Holy Ghost Language School comes out August 8th on 859 Recordings.
I always love to hear about how badly people misinterpret Matthew's work in critical reviews, and this album is no different. I've already heard the term "unlistenable" about twenty times. Cool. You know how much I love this guy, so either listen to some tracks below or just skip ahead to the next entry.
At Obscure Sound, you can hear "The Pennsylvania Rock Oil Company Resignation Letter", "Her Chinese Typewriter", "Don't You Remember?", "The Cross and the Switchblade" and "Do You Like Blondes".
At Noise for Toaster, you can hear "Under the Hood at the Paradise Garage", "Ruth Versus Rachel" and "Holy Ghost Language School".
At Good Hodgkins, you can hear "Things Were Going So Well", "Up the River" and "Seventh Loop Highway".
I know it's a double album and everything, but that's still a fucking great sampling of the two records. Enjoy.
