Rilo Kiley New (Old) Album This Year... Or Day 2, Crush 2

Rilo Kiley posted the following message on their facebook page last week:
"Record is almost finished, and artwork is nearly done. Going to need your help! More to come."

One of the great aughties bands, Rilo Kiley mixed alt folk with Brill Building pop accessible enough to appeal to the beardo, designer-glass wearing Pitchfork mob as well as the suburban NPR dinner crowd. Their not-so-secret weapon was Jenny Lewis, who was the indie max crush prior to Zooey.

The new record is said to be a compilation of b-sides and stray tracks. Here's hoping it contains the first widespread release of the Initial Friend ep, a widely bootlegged disc that fetches big bucks on eBay.

Rilo Kiley - "The Absence of God" (from More Adventurous)
