Jenny Lewis - Rise Up With Fists!!
There's something inherently old fashioned about this single and the album from which it came - something homely, from another time that you just can't quite see or touch anymore.
It's a take on an old country number, something that wouldn't have sounded out of place on an old Emmylou Harris album. The lyrics dealing with chances and how you can change your life, delivered in her crystal clear voice with the gospel backing of The Watson Twins. The B-side is also a nice acoustic number with a hint of slide guitar in the background. It maybe ever so slightly over-polished, but anything that brings out Jenny Lewis' voice is fine by me.
Not to everyone's taste, but I really like this - it's a perfect Sunday morning record for when you're recovering on the morning after the night before.
