Pleasantly Surprised

While letting Netflix carry on to this trailer for their original series "Orange is the New Black" I heard a very familiar sound!

6 Jenny Lewis icons here as part of an indie music post. ♥

cross-posted to The Elected community

(Wow, I didn't expect there to be a recent post when I came here.)

ANYWAY, I'm pretty much loving The Elected's new album. To me it's a mix of the best aspects of the first two, and it sounds more like something I would've wanted from Rilo Kiley before we got "Under the Blacklight." Not that I completely hate UTB... it was just so shocking after "More Adventurous."

Got to see The Elected live last weekend. Small crowd, unfortunately, and there were rude people in the bar area just talking. But at least I was right up front and enjoyed every moment of it. And Blake has been throwing in a Rilo Kiley song or two into his setlists.

There's a contest right now from Los Angeles' "The Deli" magazine to vote for which band people would like to see spotlighted next. The Elected is one of them; anyone reading this should go to the site and vote!

Show your love here!

The Elected - Update

Hey,
Just wanted to let everyone know you can listen to the entire new The Elected album here. It sounds pretty bad ass. Below is the cover art if you haven't seen it.

New Elected album & b-sides Rilo Kiley

Just wondering if how everyone feels about
1) The Elected's new album, Bury Me in My Rings, and

2) The continuation of both Jenny, Blake, and Jason talking about the new b-sides album. Supposedly it's going to be out this year. Supposedly. Not holding my breath, but...I want it. Plus, rilokiley.com has a new layout. I really hope it isn't all the b-sides that everyone already has.

Thoughts?
I made some Jenny icons that I thought you guys might like:
