The first time Jenny Lewis went solo and not as part of Rilo Kiley, she teamed up with The Watson Twins for an exquisite offering. It was really really beautiful and chock-full of lovely, enchanting tracks.
Acid Tongue is her 2nd solo album and The Watson Twins are not joining the party this time round. But she’s brought on a wonderful group of artists to collaborate with her.
It is a great group comprising of Elvis Costello, She & Him (M.Ward & Zooey Deschanel), and of course her supposed squeeze Jonathan Rice. (Among others)

Ray LaMontagne is a man who manages to express heartache and hurt better than anyone else in this world. His last 2 albums tore through the hardest of hearts and soothed the most broken of souls.
His brand of heartache is something few can fathom, with a general consensus that no one can actually write songs like that without feeling such despair themselves. Those who hurt find comfort in LaMontagne‘s music, which always grants the mood to dwell in disaster.
Gossip In The Grain is his 3rd album to date and some things remain consistent. His raspy vocals are present, he remains as intimate as ever, and he still manages to induce beautiful, rustic imagery in our heads with each song.
