The Voyager’s clever (but never too-clever) sound builds an open structure within which Lewis can explore her current fascination: the weight of full adulthood, and its paradoxical precariousness.
Just finished listening to this for the first time and I love it! Can’t wait for my pre-ordered copy to get here!

Because reading is something that molds you and adds to your character. Each triumph, lesson and pivotal moment of the protagonist becomes your own.
Every ache, pain and harsh truth becomes yours to bear. You’ve traveled with authors and experienced the pain, sorrow and anguish they suffered while writing through it. You’ve lived a thousand lives and come back to learn from each of them.
On the day I started my tumblr, I shared a Rilo Kiley video. Today Jenny Lewis debuted the title track off of her forthcoming LP, The Voyager, so I thought I’d share something RK adjacent today.
