Matthew Friedberger Plays Mercury Lounge Tomorrow Night

October 6th, 2015

Matthew Friedberger is perhaps best known as the main songwriter and multi-instrumentalist half of the brother-sister duo the Fiery Furnaces. But like his sister, Eleanor, he’s also done work as a solo artist. His most recent album, the melodic, instrumental Matricidal Sons of Bitches (stream it above), came out in 2012. Per DIY magazine, “This isn’t for everyone; Friedberger doesn’t write for the masses. But Matricidal Sons of Bitches’ oddness is reason enough to give it a go. The result is surprisingly delightful.” Friedberger, often doing business at the intersection of art and commerce, has also self-released his own music, and he does have a new full-length due to arrive next year. In the meantime, you can see him live tomorrow night at Mercury Lounge.
