Musical Advent Day 8: "Sweetest Girl" Eleanor Friedberger
I'm a big fan of Eleanor Friedberger's solo work. Her 2013 album, Personal Record, was one of my top five that year and her latest album, New View, is just as good. The video has Eleanor playing Sweetest Girl in a stripped down solo format that makes it starkly beautiful. The album version features more lush instrumentation that makes it one of the best pop tunes I've heard all year.
