Eleanor Friedberger, Naked Gods (Back Room)

When: Fri., April 15, 8:30 p.m. 2016

Singing and playing guitar in The Fiery Furnaces in the early aughts, Eleanor Friedberger added an alluring human element to her brother Matthew’s tongue-twisting lyrics. In the three assured, lived-in LPs she’s released under her own name, Friedberger has taken flight. “I’m moping in a tree museum/that’s my new hobby,” she sings on the bittersweet “Open Season” from this year’s New View. It’s a sly reference to Joni Mitchell’s “Big Yellow Taxi” in a song that delivers Neil Young-grade catharsis. Elsewhere, on “Never Is a Long Time,” she finds a zone of a quiet, shuddering beauty. —David Klein
