Rilo Kiley – It’s A Hit

• “It’s A Hit” set to a picture of the housing album cover. Thanks to igotyoudancing.

9.8 “All-time classic Indie from the USA”

Opening track on their album “More Adventurous” released in August, 2004.

This Jenny Lewis lass confuses the hell out of me – I have a real love-hate relationship with her songs solo or otherwise – but there’s no denying this little cracker, so listening without prejudice is the best tactic I think.

It’s a real shoot-down for those who would send young men to their death in the real-life war games.

She’s at her very best here; these perfectly understated old-fashioned vocals are complimented so well by her skillful band, the whole thing coming off like a bad-ass Kitty Wells fronting Teenage Fanclub. Stylish, catchy and a great message – it’s a big hit with me.

Ten years in the collecting, but better late than never, eh?

Get it at Amazon.
