At a time when most female singer-songwriters perform as alter egos, Eleanor Friedberger is simply, refreshingly herself. No gimmicks necessary. The title of Friedberger's sophomore album is Personal Record, and it is, in a sense. Personal, that is. But not personal in the way of, say, a coming-of-age record, or a diary about the past, which previous lp Last Summer was. Many of the songs seem to be about love, or love lost, but whether any of the experience is hers or someone else's, she isn't saying. "It's not as specific a narrative this time," she says. "There's a universality to it."
