Rilo Kiley Take Offs And Landings on 180g 2LP w/ D-Side Etching + 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.
Three years after its formation, the band released their official debut full-length Take Offs And Landings on Barsuk. Songs like "Go Ahead" and "Bulletproof" showcase the band's most distinctive asset - the sweet vocals and bittersweet lyrics of Lewis - while the breezy hooks and driving beats of tunes like "Wires and "Waves" and "Always" show the band knows how to craft songs of undeniable infectiousness.
Rilo Kiley's 2001 debut Take Offs and Landings is now available for the first time on double 180g vinyl with a special etching on the 4th side and an accompanying download code courtesy of Barsuk.
