DoCopenhagen has done a couple of posts about the brilliant new album, Rabbit Fur Coat, from Jenny Lewis. Jenny is also playing with guitarist Blake Sennett in the band Rilo Kiley. While Jenny has been doing her solo stuff, Blake has formed The Elected.
The Elected just released the second album, named Sun Sun Sun. If I should describe the sound, I would have to say that it's kind of indie rock, alt-country and the band has obviously been inspired by singer/song writers like Elliott Smith.
Good stuff I think.
Watch or just listen to The Elected playing live on KCRW.
