Jenny Lewis Acid Tongue 2LP & BONUS CD
Featured in Michael Fremer's Heavy Rotation in the April 2009 Issue of Stereophile!
Femme fatale Jenny Lewis has never sounded so passionate and her songs never so hard-hitting and acerbic as on her aptly titled solo disk Acid Tongue. The album follows 2006ís Rabbit Fur Coat (which Spin named among the best albums of that year) and a series of acclaimed albums with indie rock fave Rilo Kiley. Featuring collaborations with A Band Called She & Him and guest appearances by Elvis Costello and Chris Robinson, of The Black Crowes, Acid Tongue proves to be wicked good.
As a founding member of Rilo Kiley, Lewis debuted with 2001ís Take-Offs And Landings, followed by 2002ís The Execution Of All Things. She also contributed vocals to The Postal Serviceís Give Up album and toured with that band. In 2004, Rilo Kileyís More Adventurous prompted opening for Bright Eyes (Oberst) on the international leg of his Iím Wide Awake, Itís Morning tour and Coldplayís arena tour. For Rabbit Fur Coat, Lewis toured with the Watson Twins. 2007ís Under The Blacklight became the groupís best-selling and highest-charting album, cracking the Pop Top 25.
The vinyl package features two standardweight black-vinyl discs produced and pressed at RTI in a double-gatefold jacket with a bonus CD in a paper sleeve. The discs contain three sides of audio and a special etching on the fourth side.
