We're excited to announce the release of Rilo Kiley's indie-classic debut album Take Offs And Landings on double 180-gram vinyl for the first time on March 15th.

Formed in 1998, the Los Angeles-based indie pop quartet featuring songwriters Jenny Lewis and Blake Sennett, Pierre de Reeder on bass, and drummer Dave Rock (later replaced by Jason Boesel) originally released Take Offs And Landings on their own Rilo Records imprint, but licensed an alternate version of the album to Barsuk in 2001. The band released three other full lengths, The Execution Of All Things (2002, Saddle Creek), More Adventurous (2004, Brute/Beaute) and under the blacklight (2007, Warner Bros.), with each member constantly working on other projects as well.

This 180-gram double LP version of Take Offs And Landings includes the original "secret" track spectacular views (also known as salute my shorts!) and a special etching on the 4th side. And, for all you digital folks, it also includes a download code. ·read less·
