A review of "Rabbit Fur Coat"

by Jenny Lewis with The Watson Twins

On the surface the songs have a country feel with a bit of a gospel feeling, but there is a great irony and fire in Jenny Lewis’ lyrics. I get sucked in by the beauty and the complexity in the writing and harmonies makes it so much fun to listen to. Rabbit Fur Coat is one of my favourite new discoveries and I’ve been listening to it a lot. The songs a clustered around personal relationships and seem to be incredibly personal at times, but I’m not sure how much of it is true and it doesn’t really matter in the bigger picture. It’s just great music with a wicked sense of humour.
