Throughout Winter Women, Friedberger explores the denser sound the Furnaces have gradually approached over their career, sometimes to the point of overcooking- songs like Under the Hood at the Paradise Garage suffer from one keyboard too many being added to the mix. Often the instruments threaten to overwhelm Friedberger’s voice entirely, low in volume and prone to muttered spoken-word asides. The story of one Scot Dombrowski, a Pentecostal businessman who starts a school for using speaking in tongues for business negotiation purposes in China (obviously), it’s a plot that makes Rehearsing My Choir look like an episode of "The Golden Girls".

The band did a tour in October and November 2006, supported by San Francisco experimental rock band. This tour saw Matthew on keyboard, Eleanor on vocals, Jason Loewenstein on wah-wah pedaled guitar, Bob DAmico on drums and the addition of Michael Goodman on percussion.

The Cross and the Switchblade – 3:54. I Started Using Alcohol at the Age of Eleven – 3:57.

Really, I’m not quite sure why I do this to myself. Another artist who hardly shies away from the challenging, onal side of pop music, another pair of CD’s, each one of which breaks the 70-minute mark
