  • Overview
Under The Blacklight was recorded in Los Angeles in fall/winter 2006 and winter 2007, and is Rilo Kiley at their most robust and dazzling.

On Under The Blacklight, Jenny Lewis is fiery and unrestrained, no more so than on "The Moneymaker". With the blood of Fleetwood Mac, early Heart, and The Rolling Stones' 1978 dancefloor masterpiece "Miss You" pumping through its veins, Under The Blacklight is a gloriously decadent-sounding album, smooth dance beats balanced by the underlying lyrical motifs of the seedier side of Los Angeles life; the characters in the songs embroiled in everything from drunken one night stands to the sex industry. The album's lyrical theme is of the darker side of life as revealed by a nightclub blacklight, each song's character sharpened to a precise focus by Lewis' unique, undeniable approach. Lewis' penchant for 60's country music is also represented; "15", a twisted love story of misplaced ardor, gives us the unique idea of what Bobbie Gentry might have had to say if internet dating had existed in her time. Elsewhere, Blake Sennett dazzles with the sneaking 70's soul of "Dreamworld", a song so rich with gold dust that it's liable to take you back to the days of high school mix tapes, while "Breakin' Up" is perhaps the perfect encapsulation of what Rilo Kiley is: the song craft of Sennett and the serrated edge of Lewis' lyrics - deceptively catchy and upbeat, the song celebrates leaving a jilted lover in the dust. In many ways Under The Blacklight is a classic Californian love child and Rilo Kiley its ardent and vivacious young parents.
