  2. the only thing i manage to find neat about the whole thing is the name of the performer. this is if friedberger is refering to the place (friedberg, germany) where elvis presley spent some time with the army, there being introduced to amphetamines. an event that turned into a habit which culminated in the state he got in finally, which made his appearance on this planet a short one.

    musically this girl manages to get the worst out of the song. sounds like any old buskers strumming along to the humming of the garbage truck passing – interpreting any old song.

    I think it's a nice cover. If you're not into Eleanor Friedberger's stuff, then you won't be into this. IIRC she and Britt dated at some point.

    I'm a biog fan of Fiery Furnaces' Blueberry Boat album.....never actually checked out her new solo stuff. Is that bad? Sorry
