I think everyone who has grown up enjoying the amazing beats of independent music is going to love this pick of the day. This is one of the ultimate indie bands of all time because it has a combination of two artist of whom most of us have grown up listening to. The famous Jenny Lewis who in the indie world is the person to look up to. She’s one of my favorites because her name alone brings back so many incredible memories with so many different people. When you think of her you think of Rilo Kiley and Saddle Creek Records. You think of the times you made road trips to see her sing and made sure you saved enough money to buy one of everything from their merch table. I know, believe me I was one of those people. Deep down inside I still am. I will always love Jenny. Johnny on the other hand is the Yoko to Rilo Kiley. I think a lot of people believe that because they want to blame the break up of Rilo Kiley on someone. Naturally its what we want to do when our favorite indie band who has the recognition we all assume they were working for break up.
We wonder why????????????????????
But honestly I am tired of wondering why. I want to start talking about the when’s. When are they going to get back together for another album? When will their be a reunion tour? Let’s focus on the positive.
We don’t know for a fact that Jonathan Rice is the reason behind their break up. So let’s do ourselves ourselves a favor and just enjoy the music. After all this is the reason why we are all here. Let’s just enjoy the chemistry between Jenny & Johnny and put our pointing fingers away.
