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…
- I Was A Lover — TV On The Radio
- Consolation Prizes — Phoenix
- Star Alfur — Sigur Ros
- On The Bound — Fiona Apple
- A Better Son/Daughter — Rilo Kiley
- Keep the Car Running — The Arcade Fire
- The Greatest — Cat Power
- The Limit To Your Love — Feist
- Distant Dreamer — Duffy
- 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.
