Music: Acid Tongue by Jenny Lewis

Jenny Lewis, singer for the band Rilo Kiley, recently released the solo album, Acid Tongue, which was recommended to us by our Aunt Didi. We love Rilo Kiley, and we were excited to see what Jenny Lewis would come up with. It seems as Indie music progresses, it becomes closer and closer to folksy-country music, which is what has happened in this case. We really like the album, it's fun and funky, but there are some songs that could easily be called country.

"You go west for the black setting sun,
You go south to the white spirit world,
You go east for those real green eyes,
You go north, walk the good red road,
Pretty bird."
--Pretty Bird

"If you're high strung or stressed out,
Down in the dumps, been turned out;
Stabilized, motorized, insecure or fableized,
Curious or furious, picked apart like Prometheus;
Legalized, penalized, simplify, dry out your eyes.

If you want to go where they chain up the sun,
See Fernando, see Fernando."
--See Fernando

Quick vote: If you like Rilo Kiley, you'll enjoy this album. The music is fun and quite unique. We like it!
