Monster Music & Movies

Matthew Friedberger is one half of the brother and sister duo the Fiery Furnaces. This is Matt's first solo release and the first release from the newly formed label 859 Recordings. The first disc, Winter Women, clocking in at one hour, showcases his strength as a songwriter and features some of the most accessible and infectious pop songs he's ever written. Winter Women is a summer record, full of catchy and un-ironic pop songs. The second disc, Holy Ghost Language School, is more experimental a 46 minute sonic novel with the requisite backwards guitars and strange samples which makes Matt's work so original. Matt wrote and arranged all the music, played all the instruments (except for some drumming from John McEntire from Tortoise) and is the only vocalist throughout. The record was co-produced by Bill Skibbe at Key Club Recording at Benton Harbor, Michigan in March of this year.

Reviews:

The Fiery Furnaces tend to blur borders between "pop" and "experimental," but the duo's brotherly half allows 'em a disc apiece with this double-CD solo project.
