Eleanor Friedberger "Rebound (French Kiss)"
If you thought Rebound was going to be your album for this year’s NBA playoffs you are sadly mistaken (as am I). Instead, it is a musical rebound of sorts. Harking back to the ‘90s-exchanging live instrumentation for programmed drums, a Juno synthesizer, and muted guitars. Eleanor Friedberger sings over these newly styled grooves with the assurance and confidence of either A) someone who has been making records for over a decade or B) must crush it at karaoke. Basically, imagine Eleanor fronting Stereolab or New Order. Sound cool? It sure is! Check out the catchy as frack “Make Me A Song.” Unlike the rest of life, it won’t disappoint.
