Live! Rilo Kiley

So, when I first started watching this clip, I was sorely confused. Blake is clearly the leading man, and Jenny doesn't even sing much back-up. My next thought: she must be sick. She doesn't want to strain her vocals for the SLC show next week, so she's not singing. But, then she starts singing Moneymaker at the end, and sounds amazing?

Anyhow, even though I do enjoy Blake, I'm hoping for more Jenny at their show on Monday. (Also hoping that they get to play for a looong time before Modest Mouse takes the stage.)

What a refreshing little break for me to take in the middle of writing. I don't think I would have even known this was Rilo Kiley if you hadn't told me.

Is the sound quite different, or am I just confusing it with Jenny's solo work? It doesn't ring familiar at all. And she does sound good singing Moneymaker! Of course.

I think you'll remember my comment not long ago saying that I wasn't impressed with the new album. Well, I've been listening to it a lot lately, and even though it doesn't flow as a whole, I think overall, it's now my favorite Rilo Kiley. Hope the concert is good!

They're playing here in a couple weeks, but at $30, I can't swing it.
