Rilo Kiley, circa 2007.

Rilo Kiley was an American indie pop group that formed in 1998 in Los Angeles. The band began with the meeting of Jenny Lewis and Blake Sennett and then added bassist Pierre de Reeder, and drummer Dave Rock. Rock was replaced by Jason Boesel after the release of Take Offs and Landings. The band released several albums and were on hiatus after 2009. They put together a final compilation album in 2013 before officially breaking up in 2014.


I have all of their albums excluding their first self-published demos. I was introduced to them by a fellow fan of Bionic Commando. It was at their first concert that I attended where I met my friend Kimberly. I have seen the band live four times.

I have a crush on the lead singer Jenny Lewis, including her looks, style, voice, and song writing abilities.
