My first instinct would definitely not be to make an album with my significant other, but in Jenny Lewis’s case it has worked out beautifully. Jenny and her boyfriend Johnathan Rice have come together to create a truly sophisticated and masterful first album under the name Jenny and Johnny, entitled I’m Having Fun Now. Lewis is someone I consider to be a juggernaut for modern-day indie rock/ country/ folk infused music, as Rilo Kiley is one of my favorite groups and her most recent solo album, Acid Tongue, has some incredible tracks on it. However, there’s something about the two of them together that really brings out Jenny’s true vocal and lyric-writing prowess; the harmonies and compositions of almost every song on this record feel both incredibly organic and meticulously well thought-out. None of this comes as a surprise to me, both of them are incredibly talented; I just would never have expected this to be the direction she would have gone in. Regardless, I have nothing but good things to say about I’m Having Fun Now. It is truly fantastic. My recommendations are “Animal”, “Big Wave”, and “The Highs and Lows of Being #1″, definitely give them a listen.
