by Rilo Kiley (2007)
I think I probably discovered the band Rilo Kiley around the time that everyone else did, when their song “Portions For Foxes” became an alternative radio hit back in 2004. But it wasn’t until 2006 when lead singer Jenny Lewis released her first solo album, and co-founder Blake Sennett released the second CD by his side project The Elected, that I really got into their music.
Then in 2007, Rilo Kiley came back together to release their most recent CD Under The Blacklight, and it became my favorite CD of that year. After that, my wife and I got to see them in concert twice, and later saw Jenny Lewis solo twice as well.
There are a lot of great songs on Under The Blacklight, but the one that always stood out to me was “15,” which practically crosses over into the country genre. I won’t say too much about the song, you can listen to it for yourself, but it’s about the dangers of meeting someone on the internet and them not being as old as they might appear.
Check out “15”…
