Little record company
"Let it be printed/Let it be known that I'm leaving you..." is a threat that we are not willing to face from the beloved Jenny Lewis of Rilo Kiley. After a confusing few years from one of indie's favorite bands, Rilo Kiley is releasing a compilation album that will please their devoted fans. New to them? Rkives will still impress. "Let Me Back In" is a huge crowd-pleaser that sounds refreshingly crisp through some headphones. There are some oldies that don't translate ("American Wife"), but there is a litany of unreleased tracks to make up for it, made all the more bittersweet by the fact that this is most likely the last record we'll hear from Lewis & Co. Side note: fans lucky enough to have gotten tickets for The Postal Service's already sold out show in June will likely be getting to catch Lewis on stage as well. —Gary Bartle
