On today's show we talk to musician Eleanor Friedberger.
Originally from Oak Park, Illinois, Eleanor formed the popular
indie rock group The Fiery Furnaces with her brother Matthew in
Brooklyn, and from 2000 to 2011, they wrote and released eight
albums. Now on hiatus from the band, Eleanor has released two
albums on Merge Records, and her latest, Personal Record
just came out in June.
