Musick's Top 20 Albums: 18
18. Jenny Lewis Acid Tongue
Jenny Lewis is many things - former child actor, current front woman of indie darlings Rilo Kiley, solo star, incredibly hot. What she is not, however, is short of friends as the roll call of talent on Acid Tongue suggests; Elvis Costello, M. Ward, Zooey Deschanel, Jonathan Rice, Chris Robinson, etc, etc. Ironically, it’s the least adorned tracks that work best, not least the gorgeous sing-around-the-campfire title track and the delicate ‘Trying My Best To Love You’.
