With her brother Matthew, Friedberger released nine records and a handful of singles as the Fiery Furnaces; now solo, 2011's Last Summer might be better than them all, spinning personal stories (guess where "Scenes from Bensonhurst" takes place) over productions softer and generally more accessible than those of her former band. At the Voice's 4Knots festival earlier this, she even played Furnaces favorite "Tropical Ice-Land," so don't be surprised if a few more weather-appropriate oldies pop up in this week's sets.
