We gave it a B+

Matthew Friedberger usually employs his overactive imagination with his flute-voiced sister, Eleanor, in their Brooklyn-based duo, the Fiery Furnaces. His solo debut Winter Women/Holy Ghost Language School is routine by their eccentric standards: two discs of tangled narratives, roving through a 46-minute dream sequence as well as assorted briefer fantasies. Clown cars packed with buzzing synths and guitars careen unpredictably into Friedberger’s shy, melodic vocals. The chaos that ensues is catchier than you might expect.
