Rabbit Fur Coat
Being a huge fan of Rilo Kiley, the band Lewis was in at the time, I got this album shortly after it was released. At first, I didn't much care for the country sound and subdued music compared to Rilo Kiley, or the rather odd-phrasing in a lot of the lyrics, but as I listened to it, it slowly grew on me. The lyrics questioning theism and pointing out religious hypocrisy, while at the same time using religious idioms, are also quite enjoyable. I saw Jenny and company perform live twice when she was touring for this album.
I own this album on CD signed by Jenny Lewis and Chandra and Leigh Watson.
All songs sung by Jenny Lewis with backing vocals by The Watson Twins.

The album's total score is 595.
