Eleanor Friedberger, Rebound (FrenchKiss) — The former Fiery Furnaces’ frontwoman’s solo debut Last Summer was a fave of 2011, but the follow-ups have been mostly yawners. This synth-heavy collection is loaded with simple, sing-along pop ditties like the sun-shiny “Make Me a Song” and “The Letter.” The arrangements are so simple they sound like demos, with rhythms akin to beat box programs, but Friedberger’s sweet coo keeps you listening. Drops May 4.
