Silver Lining

I didn't get a chance to listen to all of Rilo Kiley's new album Under the Blacklight at their MySpace page before they pulled most of the tracks down. What tracks I did hear are sure to elicit some gagging from a subset of their diehard fans upset with their move over to a major label and a more mainstream pop sound.

I like "Silver Lining" a lot, though--it's a sweet little tune (that one is still up at their MySpace page). And since I, like many in the indie music world, heart Jenny Lewis, I'll be trying to catch them on their new album tour.

A good place to start, if you want to delve into the Rilo Kiley most of us have known and dug up until now, is with their earlier album Execution of All Things.
