Jan 28th, 2012 in Music

Eleanor Friedberger of The Fiery Furnaces had one of our favorite songs (My Mistakes–check out a great acoustic version HERE) and albums (Last Summer) of 2011.  Friedberger is bringing her band (Matt Asti of MGMT, Ahmed Gallab, touring member of Yeasayer and Caribou, and John Eatherly of Be Your Own Pet and Turbo Fruits) out west for a mini-tour.   She we will also join the Portlandia tour as a “Special Guest Musician.” Full dates for both listed way below!

To commemorate, Matador Records has offered up a special 5-song download of live tracks, along with a Bob Dylan cover (True Love) via the widget below.  She also premiered her new video for Heaven yesterday over at The Awl.  Oooh, spooky!
