Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Femme fatale Jenny Lewis has never sounded so passionate and her songs never so hard-hitting and acerbic as on her aptly titled solo disk, Acid Tongue. The album follows 2006's Rabbit Fur Coat (which Spin named among the best albums of that year) and a series of acclaimed albums with indie rock fave Rilo Kiley. Featuring collaborations with A Band Called She & Him and guest appearances by Elvis Costello and Chris Robinson of The Black Crowes, Acid Tongue proves to be wicked good.

Amazon.com

Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins took their cues from legendary singer/songwriter Lauro Nyro in crafting the intimate, gospel-country Rabbit Fur Coat. The all-star Acid Tongue represents something bigger and darker. Without abandoning her roots, Rilo Kiley's front woman adds more soul and jazz weaponry to her musical arsenal, culminating in a record that combines the folky introspection of Joni Mitchell, circa Court and Spark, with the bluesy rock of the Rolling Stones, circa Sticky Fingers, i.e. slide guitar, Hammond B3 organ, and funk-oriented bass (Lewis contributes piano, vibraphone, and guitar). Even her voice sounds richer; deeper and smokier on some songs, like the noirish, nine-minute medley "The Next Messiah," and lighter and brighter on others, like the soaring "Black Sand" and yearning, Bowie-ish "Trying My Best to Love You." Recorded live to tape, the 11 tracks come hurtling out of the speakers like Wild Horses. Duet partners and backing vocalists include Jonathan Rice, Chris Robinson, and Lewis super-fan, Elvis Costello. Frequent collaborator M. Ward drops by to add acoustic licks to the slinky "Pretty Bird." With this second album, Lewis strikes a masterful balance between tough sounds and tender sentiments. --Kathleen C. Fennessy
