Together with her songwriting partner Blake Sennett, More Adventurous is reflective and sassy, with artsy storytelling, interesting musical arrangements and strong melodies. Mostly it’s about Lewis’s vocals and she shines throughout on songs like the indie-rock doo-wop of “I Never,” “Portions For Foxes,” “Does He Love You, “ the cynical “It’s A Hit,” and the title song.
Lewis’s vocals bring to mind Chrissie Hynde, Petula Clark, at times Maria McKee; it’s a voice you can quickly fall in love with. Stylistically, Rilo Kiley are a little all over the map. But the terrain they cover is fresh, wistful and pleasantly stylish.
