The video for Eleanor Friedberger‘s charming “My Mistakes,” the first single from her forthcoming solo debut Last Summer, seems initially like a cautionary tale about how not much has changed for women since the era of VHS fuzz-outs. (The older footage is for-real archival, and culled from a project Friedberger starred in while studying at the University of Texas in the ’90s.) But it actually winds up being sort of a sweet love letter to her relationship with music, and the fine art of eating on a New York City stoop on a summer day.
Happy endings for everyone! Friedberger plays the inaugural 4Knots Music Festival along with the Black Angels, Titus Andronicus and others on July 16.
