Roosevelt Island Title of New Song From Eleanor Friedberger's New Solo Album Last Summer - Music Video On Tram, Anybody Look Familiar?

Eleanor Friedburger of the Fiery Furnaces recently released a solo album called Last Summer and the title of one of the songs is Roosevelt Island. Here's the video for Roosevelt Island by Ms. Friedburger.



According to Rolling Stone:
"Roosevelt Island," the second video from the first solo album by Fiery Furnaces frontwoman Eleanor Friedberger is charmingly straightforward, with the singer taking the tram to the island referenced in the song, which lies just off the coast of Manhattan. The laid back tune calls back to mid-Seventies hits by Steely Dan and Fleetwood Mac, but Friedberger's distinct vocal style lends the music a very different sort of energy. All through the video, she scribbles in a journal, which is a perfect image corresponding with her vocals, which sound like ideas spilling directly out of her brain and on to the tape.
Ms. Friedberger will be playing in New York on August 22-23 at Webster Hall. Perhaps she would like to come back and perform Roosevelt Island right here?

Here's another song about Roosevelt Island, this one written by a local resident,  Crossing the East River on the Roosevelt Island Tram

When covering the area, it should be enough to use a
regular bandage. Cholera is an acute infection of the small intestine, and it can be life-threatening.
After throughly washing the area then placing ice on top of
acne will support with the swelling and pain.
