Rilo Kiley

With a sound that veers from the acoustic simplicity and poetic lyricism of coffeehouse folk to the bouncy, lo-fi appeal of D.I.Y. indie pop, this California quartet wrote melodies so damn catchy, you might almost think you've heard them before. Jenny Lewis (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Blake Sennet (guitar, vocals), Pierre de Reeder (bass) and Dave Rock (drums, later replaced by ex-Lassie Foundation member Jason Boesel) formed Rilo Kiley in 1998 in Los Angeles. Three years after its formation, the band released Take Offs And Landings on Barsuk. Songs like Go Ahead and Bulletproof showcase the band's most distinctive asset — the sweet vocals and bittersweet lyrics of Lewis — while the breezy hooks and driving beats of tunes like Wires And Waves and Always show the band knows how to craft songs of undeniable infectiousness.

Rilo Kiley Take Offs And Landings Limited 20th Anniversary Reissue

It's here! Last October we announced our 20th anniversary reissue of Rilo Kiley's debut full-length Take Offs and Landings and our pre-order sold out almost immediately. Limited to 3,000 copies worldwide, this double-LP reissue is on 180-gram white vinyl with a FULL-COLOR UV PRINT and hidden track on side D. If you missed the Barsuk pre-order, have no fear! A limited quantity will be available in record stores starting tomorrow, April 22.

We also just received a restock of Rilo Kiley's 2004 album More Adventurous on vinyl, available in the shop while supplies last!
