Rilo Kiley Wraps Up a New Album

I've had a girl crush on Jenny Lewis ever since I saw the former child star in Troop Beverley Hills. So it's convenient that she now fronts one of indie-pop's most endearing bands. As the lead singer of LA-based Rilo Kiley, Lewis writes and belts out borderline-sappy songs with just the right amount of vitriol, spanning rock, country, folk, and assorted other genres.

Needless to say, I can't wait to hear what the band does next. As reported yesterday in Billboard, Rilo Kiley just wrapped production on its fourth album, called Under the Blacklight and due Aug. 21 on Warner Bros.

The collection, which Billboard says centers on the dark side of LA, will be the band's first since 2004's More Adventurous, which I highly recommend if you've never heard it. If you like that, be sure to check out Lewis's solo album, Rabbit Fur Coat, and The Execution of All Things, which is my other favorite RK album. Really, if you haven't heard this band, you're just missing out, so I've assembled a few must-hear tracks if you

"Portions for Foxes" and "I Never" from More Adventurous

"A Better Son/Daughter" from The Execution of All Things

I love Rilo Kiley and Jenny Lewis - but I never really saw anything with her picture, so I had no clue that it was the actress that is so recognizable! I have seen her in tons of stuff. I love Foxfire.

I love Jenny Lewis, not to mention that her voice is very well known in the indie circuit ... heck in music in general.

Hey Whip — Good question! Unfortunately, I can't find any information on when her solo album will be released. I'm sorry! Will definitely be on the lookout for it, though...

I like Rilo Kiley, but I'm a bigger fan of Jenny's solo stuff. Buzz, do you know when her solo album is coming out? I saw her last year and she played some of the new stuff, which was FANTASTIC.
