Grandmother of Matthew and Eleanor Friedberger of The Fiery Furnaces and star of one of the greatest and most heartfelt albums I have ever heard, Rehearsing My Choir. Not only my favourite Fiery Furnaces album but one of my top 10 albums of the decade.
I was really hoping someone would realise how much of a masterpiece the album is and write a 33 1/3 album about it. Now that seems unlikely as the best interviewee is gone.
Despite the sadness of the death, it is 100% amazing that the band imortalised her story and voice on the record.
