David Dye of NPR’s World Cafe interviews Rilo Kiley’s Jenny Lewis on her newest solo album, Acid Tongue, in Jenny Lewis: Drawn Back To Country.

While her band Rilo Kiley is known for its downbeat indie-rock sound, Jenny Lewis finds her foundation in country coming to the fore on her sophomore solo effort, Acid Tongue. Though she recorded the album in just three weeks, Lewis infuses her voice with a hint of jazzy soul without losing her grip on her country-rock roots.

With a healthy dose of guest appearances — by Elvis Costello, Chris Robinson of The Black Crowes and M. Ward — during the recording sessions, Acid Tongue crackles with the vitality of an old-fashioned jam session. In a session with host David Dye, Lewis performs material from the new album.
