Featured Jenny Lewis stories

Last weekend at Soldier Field in Chicago, the Grateful Dead played a series of farewell shows with Phish frontman Trey Anastasio standing in for the late Jerry Garcia. Alex Bleeker, who has covered the Dead with his bands Real Estate and the Freaks, was in attendance all three nights. We asked him to share hisMore »

This week, we got two videos that riffed on nostalgic nuggets of ’80s pop culture, and both of them came out within about an hour of each other. Both of those videos are made with charm and inventiveness and a sense of fun, and both of them are on this list. But these constant nostalgia-riff… More »

There were headliners on all three days of Coachella, as there are every year. But this year, there was really only one headliner, and that one headliner was Drake. People talked about that Drake show all weekend. People rapped Drake lyrics at each other every time there was a conversational lull, or asked strangers who… 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 this week’… 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 though.

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 Springsteen the… 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 scenes, deserts, Thailand,… 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 this time… 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. The film’s soundtrack… More »

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. After that… 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 »

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 us i… More »
