Watch The Postal Service Play The Colbert Report With Jenny Lewis

Back when the Postal Service recorded Give Up a decade ago, Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello weren't famous enough to warrant TV time, either together or as separate entities. But time and growing cult status have a way of changing things, and the reunited Postal Service made their TV debut on last night's episode… More »

Eric Burdon & Jenny Lewis – “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood”

In 1965, British Invasion greats the Animals had a hit with their cover of Nina Simone's "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood," and now the former Animals frontman Eric Burdon has teamed up with the former Rilo Kiley leader Jenny Lewis to record another version of the song. This one is for True Blood, the… More »

The 10 Best Rilo Kiley Songs

Without hearing a single note of their music, at least two members of indie rock band Rilo Kiley should be somewhat recognizable to virtually anyone in the United States who came of age in the '80s or '90s. Jenny Lewis, the group's primary singer and songwriter, began her career in the entertainment industry as a… More »

Download Ben Gibbard & Death Cab For Cutie’s Best Cover Songs

Last month Death Cab For Cutie returned to the spotlight with "You Are A Tourist," the great first single and video from their forthcoming Codes And Keys. A sunny addition to our spring playlist, it recalls brighter moments of mid-period Cure when it's not channeling "Float On." That's fitting given how Ben Gibbard's got five… More »

Trent Reznor Wins Golden Globe

Trent Reznor was surprised when he was nominated for the Best Original Score Golden Globe, so he was even more surprised that he and co-writer Atticus Ross actually took the award home last night during the first hour of the show's live broadcast. Also surprising: he and Ross actually attended the ceremonies --… More »

Brandon Flowers – “Hard Enough” (Feat. Jenny Lewis)

We saw him play "Hard Enough" live (without Lewis) at his debut solo show in Las Vegas, though with Lewis on backing vocals it really brings out how much this track sounds like Fleetwood Mac. Listen to this radio rip:… More »

Jenny & Johnny – “Switchblade”

You've heard "Scissor Runner" and "Big Wave," from the upcoming Jenny & Johnny album I’m Having Fun Now. The band has a new streaming player that lets you hear those tracks, plus another new one called "Switchblade." It's a slower acoustic song with a great opening line: "It's been one long year… More »

Jenny & Johnny – “Big Wave”

When Jessica posted “Scissor Runner” by indie AM Gold couple Jenny Lewis and Johnny Rice, she noted we should expect some darker sounds on the forthcoming full-length. (The duo's mascot is a snake eating its tail, after all). "Big Wave," for example, tackles credit default swaps, the dark side of Ambien, and said snake… More »

Jenny and Johnny is Jenny Lewis and her boyfriend Jonathan Rice. The love carries over to the album art for their forthcoming I'm Having Fun Now. If you're cool with PDA, they also have some high-profile shows this fall. More »

Indie Rockers Play Dress-Up For The New York Times

Coachella is already the most fashionable of the summer festivals by virtue of its proximity to Los Angeles, so this year the NYT ran with the glam, taking a bagful of high fashion garments and draping them on a bunch of rock stars for a fun little photo gallery. The spread runs in thi… More »

New Jenny Lewis Video – “See Fernando”

For someone as videogenic as Jenny, her last videos for "Black Sand" was remarkably blah. We didn't even post the studio-set clip she made with Elvis Costello for "Carpetbaggers" because it, too, offered little by way of something you should actually take time out of your day to watch. "See Fernando" is the cure… More »

Triumph At Bonnaroo Videos Are Here (For You To Poop On)

The Tonight Show's Triumph The Insult Comic Dog was everywhere at Bonnaroo '09 -- backstage, onstage, Tent City, the Discotheque Arcade, Scratch DJ Academy. We saw the puppet hound duet with animal rights activist Neko Case ("Do any of those dogs that you rescue get to watch you shower?") on Sunday and Bruce Springstee… More »

New Jenny Lewis Video – “Black Sand”

Aside from some promotional clips and late night performances, this is the first real video from Jenny's latest solo endeavor. At Bonnaroo this weekend it seemed she and her buddy Elvis Costello were never more than 10 paces from each other, but this "Black Sand" vid is just Jenny, projected over beachy… More »

Bonnaroo 2009: Trent Says Goodbye, Bruce Says Merry Christmas

By Scott Lapatine & Amrit Singh Sets from Jimmy Buffet and Bruce Springsteen bookended a day of mellow, familiar dadrock with more mass appeal than the inscrutable indie pop that dominated Friday. Backed by Elvis Perkins In Dearland, the ever humble Bon Iver followed Robyn Hitchcock And The Venus 3 under This Tent in the… More »

Jenny Lewis (Plus A Welcome To Van Nuys Surprise Screening) @ The Glass House, Pomona 4/13/09

Fans turning up to Jenny Lewis's set at the Glass House last night received a special treat. It was not that BF Jonathan Rice came out on stage, because when is he not onstage with her, and it was not that they covered "Love Hurts" together, because they do that a bunch, too. (You ca… More »

Elvis Costello Fleshes Out His Spectacle With She & Him & Jenny Lewis

Elvis Costello's Sundance Channel show really is a perfectly packaged hour for music nerds. EC is an adept interviewer, and never shy about joining in the jam during his guest's performance segments. As at the wrap party, last night's Spectacle had Costello perform with Jenny Lewis on her Acid Tongue cut "Carpetbaggers." Only thi… More »

New Jenny Lewis – “Barking At The Moon”

Unfortunately, this isn't an Ozzy homage. When not hanging around with Elvis Costello -- whose Spectacle With... advertisements have invaded the NYC subways -- she's promoting her own Acid Tongue. Surprisingly, "Barking" has nothing to do with Costello or her album; instead, it has everything to do with Disney's animated, dog-starring Bolt. More »

Elvis Costello Joins Jenny Lewis’ Band At Spectacle Wrap Party

Elvis Costello's been hanging out with a diverse group of artists this year (Fall Out Boy, Lucinda Williams, the Police, a Jonas Brother), but he really seems to have hit it off with Jenny Lewis. (She contributed vocals to his Momofuku and he returned the favor on her AcidMore »
