Jenny Lewis And Elvis Costello Sing For Letterman

OK first of all stop the internet and GO VOTE. Now back to distracting you from your anxiety about the election's outcome. This here is another installment in the continuing documentation of Jenny making talk show hosts hold her blotter of Acid. Last time she made Conan do it by playing with someMore »

Jenny Lewis Gives Conan Her “Acid Tongue”

From the first announcement -- and through those weak sketches featuring her special friend Johnathan Rice and fellow Postal worker Ben Gibbard -- Jenny's been intent on keeping this an extended family affair.

Jenny Lewis Anonymously Participates In Kanye’s 808’s Focus Group

It's true, Kanye's made the entire internet into a workshop for his new material. But he's still getting feedback the old fashioned way, approaching strangers in airports, armed with headphones and an iPod, asking for opinions on his unreleased tracks. At least according to Jenny Lewis, who tells EW.com: We missed our flight… More »

New Jenny Lewis – “The Next Messiah”

In preparation to drop Acid, Jenny's been posting some not very amusing sketches to YouTube, featuring Ben Gibbard, Jonathan Rice, and actual music from the LP. So, yes "The Next Messiah"'s special sketch involves Ben Gibbard in a closet with a bunch of pink heart-shaped balloons that have Acid Tongue inscribed upon them. More »

New Jenny Lewis – “Acid Tongue” & Acid Tongue Album Art

Welcome to the post where we finally give you guys Jenny Lewis's phone number. Oh, hi Google. It's in the same way we gave you Arcade Fire's phone number, though. (Remember 866-NEON-BIBLE, back when it streamed "Intervention" and didn't lead to a chat with Will Butler? It's like that.) Jenny's next record,… More »

Stream Elvis Costello’s Momofuku

Let's just start with a nice nullus on the post title. We've told you about Momofuku, its initial formats, its meaning and its Jenny Lewis.

Elvis Costello’s Momofuku Is All About Cup O’ Soup, Jenny Lewis

A ways back we mentioned Elvis Costello was releasing his new album Momofuku as a vinyl LP and that a unique "digital download code" comes with the package. Turns out, a couple weeks later, there'll also be a CD. Now, in a bountiful update rightfully titled "ABSO-MOMOFUKU-LY" at his website, Mr. Costello lets u… More »

mtvU 2007 Woodie Awards: Spank Rocked

There's a grand tradition being hatched at mtvU's Woodie Awards show. Sure, there's the live performances that come at a 50/50 mix of stuff we like (last year TV On The Radio, this year, say, Rilo Kiley) and stuff we don't (last year and this year: most of the rest) and the knack of tragic… More »

Rilo Kimmel

Jenny, Blake and the rest of the Kiley kids hit up Jimmy Kimmel last night with their Fleetwood-y "Dreamworld." Who are the extra chicks onstage? Guess it's their tour force. Sennett's dashing in bow tie and all, but not enough Jenny cam time, wethinks. Trippy backdrop, though! Nice congas. More »

New Rilo Kiley Video – “Silver Lining”

Mawwage ... mawwage is what bwings us togetha today. The new Rilo clip's got Jenny under the veil, then walking down the altar, then doing her best Runaway Bride. Cast opposite her is Blake as the groom-to-be (Johnathan Rice is there, although as his time with Faye Runaway showed, he and Jenny have a… More »

Hear Rilo Kiley’s Under The Blacklight

Rilo Kiley's latest never leaked, but it did start streaming over at MySpace today. So fire up those blogging fingers.

New Johnathan Rice Video – “We’re All Stuck Out In The Desert” (Plus A Cameo-Filled Press Conference)

He's just barely turned 24, but Johnathan Rice seems to have some stuff figured out for himself: major label deal, fancy friends, lauds from R.E.M., an IMDB page, a tour with Gibbard and Bazan, and a relationship with Jenny Lewis (by comparison, think we had just about figured out how to log on to… More »

New Rilo Kiley – “Silver Lining” (And Under The Blacklight Album Art) – Stereogum Premiere

Still weeks off from getting the full Under The Blacklight platter from Rilo, but there's a "Silver Lining" to ease the anticipation. Considerably less porno-funky than "The Moneymaker" -- in fact it's a slice of sugary '60s soul by comparison -- the hook's got Jenny in love and cheering like a metaphorical metallurgist: "Hooray… More »

Have You Seen The New Jenny Lewis Porno?

Porn auditions serve as the sleazy set-up for Rilo Kiley's 18+ clip from Under The Blacklight, out 8/21. Hit themoneymake.com, wait out nine minutes of vérité, and you'll be rewarded with a proper music video for "The Moneymaker." Bluer than "Portions Of Foxes," sure, but no more hardcore than most of what you see… More »

Drew Barrymore Set To Write Jenny Lewis Tunes

Here's the thing with actors: Give 'em a political role, soon they're offering foreign policy suggestions off camera. (Thespian, know thy place!) And we love Drew, but maybe she's guilty of letting a role play her. In her upcoming '80s-music loving Music and Lyrics, Drew plays a natural born lyricist (offering impromptu lines like… More »
