EDITORS’ NOTES

Following the quietly great Last Summer and Personal Record, the former Fiery Furnace’s third solo album filters folksy '60s- and '70s-style rock (think Zombies or Bob Dylan) through the slacker brilliance of '90s indie bands like Pavement. Wry, romantic, and written with enough offbeat detail to fill a Wes Anderson movie, New View captures the ins and outs of relationships in a voice that’s bittersweet (“Never Is a Long Time”), funny (“Cathy With the Curly Hair”), and, more often than not, both (“Sweetest Girl”).
