Australian Americana singer/songwriter Katie Brianna on the album that helped her transform herself and stake out her independence as a young woman - Rilo Kiley’s 2007 swan song ‘Under the Blacklight’.
We make the case for the album as Rilo Kiley’s best record - and how it represents a breadth and musical ambition beyond their previous catalogue. We discuss the songs fall in the evolution of frontwoman Jenny Lewis, from RK’s indie rock origins to her subsequent solo success. Katie talks about why 'Under the Blacklight’ is the album she wishes she was 'cool enough’ to make, and we really overwork the 'your band is your baby’ metaphor.
