Rilo Kiley More Adventurous on 180g LP + Download Code
With a sound that veers from the acoustic simplicity and poetic lyricism of coffeehouse folk to the bouncy, lo-fi appeal of D.I.Y. indie pop, this California quartet writes melodies so damn catchy, you might almost think you've heard them before. Jenny Lewis (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Blake Sennet (guitar, vocals), Pierre de Reeder (bass) and Dave Rock (drums, later replaced by ex-Lassie Foundation member Jason Boesel) formed Rilo Kiley in 1998 in Los Angeles.
2004's More Adventurous is Rilo Kiley's third full-length album following Take Offs and Landings (2001) and The Execution of All Things (2002). The breakthrough eleven song set - named "Album of the Year" by KCRW's Nic Harcourt among many other tastemakers - is simultaneously bold and understated, bombastic and intimate, tragic and triumphant. It’s an album full of uplifting songs of heartbreak, traditional pop from the future, country music from the city, and other manners of oxymoronic perfection.
