On Tuesday Jenny Lewis, the single force on the planet in pure opposition to my lifelong fear of redheads, released her folksy follow-up to her first sassy solo album. Acid Tongue follows Rabbit Fur Coat with the backup talents of all of Jenny’s closest crew including the likes of Zooey Deschanel, M. Ward, and Elvis Costello.
I’ve been lucky enough to catch live performances of the two standout tracks on the album, title track Acid Tongue and See Fernando, between the most previous tours of Rilo Kiley and Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins.
So, yes, my fear of redheads is decreasing more and more. However, my hatred of unicyclists increases daily, as witnessed by the photo below. Man I friggin’ hate ‘em!
