Song of the Day: Jenny and Johnny - Switchblade

I've already mentioned that Jenny Lewis is awesome, and I had high hopes for this record with her boyfriend and contributor, Jonathan Rice.  So much hope, in fact, that I bought tickets when they went on sale to see them at the Troubadour on Tuesday, even though I just saw them last night, opening for Belle & Sebastian.

After a couple listens, the album is definitely good, but this track is fantastic. I was riveted when they played it live, and I'm looking forward to seeing them again tomorrow.

  1. After seeing them again last night, they noted that this song was one of the first they wrote together, years ago. It sounded fantastic, and the entire show was amazing - particularly the encore of "Acid Tongue."
