Jenny Lewis: Acid Tongue

I'm a big fan of Jenny Lewis (also of Rilo Kiley) and her first solo record, Rabbit Fur Coat (with the Watson Twins). That album featured such great songs as The Big Guns, Rise Up with Fists!! and a fantastic cover of The Traveling Wilbury's Handle with Care featuring Death Cab's Ben Gibbard, Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst and She &amp Him's M. Ward. Rabbit Fur Coat was released on the New York-based Oberst/Krenkel-founded label Team Love .

Released on 9/23, Acid Tongue (click for production and label credits) is Jenny's second solo album and it's got some great stuff, I particularly like the title track which features just an acoustic guitar and a bass playing behing Jenny and the backing vocal talents of (Lewis' boyfriend) Jonathan Rice and Chris Robinson (of the Black Crowes).
