listen=fiery furnaces

This evening as Arian, Will, and I were walking back from the tallest man on earth/pizza extreme, we talked of many things, one being Dotttt. I might make a post about Dotttt another time.
Anyhow, on the topic of grandmothers, The Fiery Furnaces.

I am not terribly knowledgeable about The Fiery Furnaces. I think the first song I heard by them was 'Chris Michaels', which remains my favorite Fiery Furnaces song, and would definitely hold a high spot on my list of favorite songs if I were to make one. 'Chris Michaels' is weird. Freak folk weird / Skeletal Lamping weird. It's seven disjointed songs in one, lasts about 8 minutes. I like to play guitar to this song. Instead of posting an mp3, I encourage you to plunk out the chords and listen to it that way (via deerhoof)

The Fiery Furnaces (brother/sister Matthew and Eleanor Friedberger) released a cd a while back with their grandmother. It is very weird. Their grandmother, who is named Olga and has a voice like her name is Olga, tells stories from her past. I like it.
