Friday Random/Genius Ten

I’ve been obsessed with Jenny Lewis* lately. She’s part of a triad (it includes Zooey Deschanel and Feist) that doesn’t try to sound like anything other than what it is, and manages to pull off a sweet soulfulness in the process. Her new album, Acid Tongue, is on constant play at home and in the car, but I figured I’d pull from her first solo venture (without her bandmates in Rilo Kiley) Rabbit Fur Coat for Friday Genius/Random Ten. Let’s see what “Rise Up With Fists” gets us…

  1. I Was A Lover — TV On The Radio
  2. Consolation Prizes — Phoenix
  3. Star Alfur — Sigur Ros
  4. On The Bound — Fiona Apple
  5. A Better Son/Daughter — Rilo Kiley
  6. Keep the Car Running — The Arcade Fire
  7. The Greatest — Cat Power
  8. The Limit To Your Love — Feist
  9. Distant Dreamer — Duffy
  10. I Go To Sleep — Sia

The video for “Rise Up With Fists” is a spoof-y fun.

*For a point of reference here are some of Jenny’s many credits when she was a child actor.
