Shadows and Light Take 1: Jenny and Johnny

In Shadows and Light on August 26, 2010 at 7:09 am

           A good memory being worked over in your mind lights your body up from the inside, out; its goodness burns and turns the corners of your mouth upwards. That’s what the songs on Jenny Lewis and Jonathan Rice’s new poppy folk album I’m Having Fun Now feel like. In songs like “Switchblade” and “Big Wave,” their voices and instruments mix with your own memories and become that much more colorful, deep, and gut-wrenchingly real, beautiful, and nerve-wracking.

          The album’s release date is Aug. 31st 2010; it’s streaming on NPR Music and can’t come soon enough.
