Was there not a Rilo Kiley thread already?  Anyway, The Execution of All Things (their album before More Adventurous) is pretty damned good.

I saw them, and if you like their albums, you'll dig the show.

yeah, my friend wanting to see the Wizard (which hasn't been released to DVD and i can't find to rent anywhere) is probably what pushed me over the edge into checking them out (that and the fact that Blake was in Salute Your Shorts).

i haven't gotten the first album. what's the deal with the track "salute your shorts" listed in the tracklisting? is it the actual theme song?

for anyone interested, you can download FOR FREE and LEGAL the entire (save for one song) album Rabbit Fur Coat from Jenny Lewis website.  it's pretty awesome, and if you like alt country you will dig it as i do.

i'll have to look into that.
tell me though, what is the marketing standpoint behind doing that?

I can't say what the marketing standpoint behind it is, because I've downloaded it, and it's in perfect condition.  160 kbps, CD-quality... about as good as if I bought the CD.  There's just the one song that they don't include, which I've downloaded on iTunes.  I mean, I guess you can say that now I've spent 99 cents that I wasn't sure I'd spend otherwise, but then again, I now have the whole album for 99 cents.  My guess is that it's a limited time thing to get the album out there, and then when people start recommending it, the people that they recommend it to will have to buy it.  Other than that, I can't really see the purpose, but I love it.  I'm also going to check out the other artists on the site that have a similar downloading thing going on which I wouldn't have listened to otherwise.

I'm digging the album, but I've only listened to it once.  My first impression is that this isn't the lyrically strongest album of Lewis's, but it sounds gorgeous.  I've really liked her voice for a long time now.  Rilo Kiley has been getting better and better.  So far I like Rilo Kiley over this, but this is really pretty wonderful.  I'm listening to it at a lowish volume late at night, and it's really perfectly suited to that.  And maybe multiple listenings will add even more.

Especially since it's free, I absolutely recommend getting it.
