Jenny Lewis of Rilo Kiley

When I heard that Jenny Lewis was releasing a solo album I imagined her lone voice and an electric guitar. Replace that electric with an acoustic and the lone vocals with accompanying vocal duties of the Watson Twins and you have Rabbit Furcoat. Jenny Lewis' first solo album has a soulful southern charm which isn't what I was expecting but is a welcome surprise. The three part vocal harmonies along with Jenny Lewis' voice makes this album. Among the highlights, she does a Traveling Wilburys cover of Handle With Care featuring vocals from M. Ward, Ben Gibbard and Conor Oberst;

"I used to have a 'no covers' policy in Rilo Kiley, which I guess was me being stubborn," Lewis said. "I've always loved the Traveling Wilburys, and I thought about who could sing the different parts. And I thought, well, Ben could play Roy, because his voice is so pure and beautiful, and of course I thought of Conor doing the Dylan part, which I think is pretty awesome and humorous in its own right." -mtv.com
