Eleanor Friedberger Warps The Circle Of Life In The “My Mistakes” Clip


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.
