Matt Friedberger: The Younger

Fiery Furnace and newbie solo artist, Matt Friedberger, played in a few bands before teaming with his sister, Eleanor, to form the Fiery Furnaces. The bands Corndolly, Mezzanines, and Liquorette all boasted Friedberger's obvious talents, but, as far as I know, Liquorette was truly Friedberger's baby. He was the lead singer and main songwriter and the fact that he was lead singer surprises me, as I once had the feeling he was hiding behind his sister's distinctive voice in the Fiery Furnaces... that illusion now laying shattered at the feet of his double disc solo album, Holy Ghost Language and Winter Women and these two Liquorette songs from Matt Friedberger, the younger.
