the 3rd solo album from the ex-fiery furnace - These songs were recorded live to tape with simple instrumentation: drums, bass, Wurlitzer & 12-string acoustic guitar on almost every track.

These come courtesy of the band Icewater (Malcolm Perkins, Jonathan Rosen, Michael Rosen, Noah Hecht), with Dorian DeAngelo contributing a handful of well-placed guitar solos. Songs like 'Open Season' recall the Furnaces at their most magisterial. The wry, plainspoken 'Because I Asked You' builds on the style Friedberger first polished on her solo debut 'Last Summer'....& then there's 'A Long Walk', the sun-striped finale that lends a memorable afterglow to 'New View'. "the warm bubbling interplay of the music if infectious...the sort of economic & playful flourishes the band dispensed at their height" 4/5 - mojo, "full of trad sounds electrified by the off-kilter visions of an artist whose recognition as one of americana's finest voices is long overdue" 9/10 - uncut.
