Rare is the the actress who finds fame as a singer, but Jenny Lewis now lays claim to a stellar body of work that makes her former career merely a footnote. As the frontwoman of Rilo Kiley, Lewis isn't hurtin' for indie cred. That band's irresistible hooks are balanced by thoughtful lyrics and sunny instrumentation: hallmarks that also inform Lewis's second solo release "Acid Tongue." Featuring guest spots from Elvis Costello and M.Ward as well as the backing of singer/guitarist Johnathan Rice, it's a bit more countrypolitan than Rilo Kiley—a step backwards to go forwards.

What is the deal with the super crunchy pic of Jenny on the Lawrence.com home page?

I mean, she looks like Alice Cooper and Iggy Pop had a baby. Anyone else thinking this?

OK. Looks like they changed that crunchy pic out for a nice pic.

Well thank god for that, crvernon. We don't want none of them crunchies performin' around these parts.
