A young person tries not to be awful at living, fails.

- Dec 11, 2013

TODAY in Chart Attack's HOLLYWOOD MINUTE...rising independent actress Kate Lyn Sheil's new short “The Couch Is Yours,” directed by Scott Jacobsen, sees a strong mid-week debut...inspired by Fiery Furnace (and co-star!) Eleanor Friedberger's song “My Own World,” the short found its niche with adrift 20 somethings unequipped to plant roots anywhere, or even figure out what one would look like. Audiences related to its humorous dings of therapists and the trials of friends-as-roommates, as well as the soundtrack.

Friedberger actually released a full length companion album to the three and a half minute film called Personal Record, out now on Merge. As for “THE COUCH,” stream it in full below via Rolling Stone.
