CD of the Week: I'm Having Fun Now

Jenny Lewis' partnership with Johnathan Rice dates back to her 2006 solo debut Rabbit Fur Coat. The Rilo Kiley frontwoman later invited Rice to join her touring band and work on her captivating 2008 follow-up Acid Tongue.

Lewis and Rice take a step away from the alt-country elements of those solo albums in pursuit of power pop perfection. The resulting 
Jenny and Johnny debut, I'm Having Fun Now, harkens back to alternative new wave of the 1980's, and features a compelling blend of the duo's vocals.

Jenny and Johnny perform at Rams Head Live on Monday, October 25.
