Jenny Lewis

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - ELECTRICPI­CNIC -

Just be­cause her mu­sic is a melange of chim­ing power pop, bu­colic Amer­i­cana and bursts of Laurel-Canyon-singer-song­writer sun­shine doesn’t mean that Jenny Lewis is a happy bunny. The for­mer Rilo Ki­ley singer may not have the freaky-deaky ku­dos of a St Vin­cent or a tUne-YaRds, but when it comes to de­tail­ing char­ac­ter flaws and in­se­cu­ri­ties, Lewis is up there with the best. Her re­cently re­leased al­bum, The Voy­ager, is full of such adult con­fes­sions, each one wrapped in West Coast sparkle and alt.coun­try ac­cents. Ex­pect a show lit­tered with Lewis’s finest mo­ments, from The Voy­ager (one of the best pop al­bums of the year) to some choice Rilo Ki­ley tunes. And don’t for­get to check out her rain­bow-coloured pantsuit. It’s, like, beau­ti­ful, man.
