Long, long songs about work at sea, in the field, and in the forest, with guitar riffs that howl like hurricanes and melodies that bend like trees. Matthew and Eleanor Friedberger have mastered rock as a journal of recorded experience — their music is as ruminative as their wordplay, which can be simple or impenetrable. But it’s always urgent, heartfelt, fearlessly fiery, utterly sincere.
