nu musick: Rilo Kiley

"You've Got the Moneymaker"

We've got the brand new single from Los Angeles Indie Darlings Rilo Kiley. "The Moneymaker" hit the 'net the other day is all big RAWK guitars, a super tight rhythm section and Jenny Lewis sounding like a sexy young Joan Jett. No doubt the Rilo sound has evolved with each album, maturing from the minimalist Casio drum laden indie-twang of Take Offs and Landings towards a truly successful mixture of clever indie song writing, ingenious pop sensibilities and classick rock adrenaline on the Execution of All Things & More Adventurous. There's a reason they've won over thousands of wide eyed youngsters and are bound to win thousands more with on August 21st when Under the Blacklight is released. If "the Moneymaker" is any indication, than Under the Blacklight may sound like Rilo got drunk with Siouxsie & the Banshees & Rick James. Seriously. Get "The Moneymaker" and watch the video below. The video is 70's porn in the vein of Fiona Apple's "Criminal". The song is much of the same. Regardless, Jenny looks great shaking her moneymaker. God bless.

not gonna lie, i kinda agree. although i liked it a little more after 48 hours, even hummed it a little on my walk home, but it just doesnt have that "IT" quality that there other first singles of albums had. who knows, under the blacklight could be great. only time will tell
