Quirky Emo Country Folky Alternative — 7 years ago
I like things that are hard to classify and I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered Rilo Kiley through an Audioscrobbler recommendation. The two songs that I heard were “Hail to Whatever You Have Found in the Sunlight That Surrounds You” which had a nice rhythm and interesting lyrics, and then “The Execution of All Things” which is somewhat darker. Then I dug a little bit more and bought the album (or bought the right to download it). With adventurous production (that sometimes goes a bit too far) and a lyrical complexity that keeps me listening while the music builds, it’s one of my favourite discoveries.
