Album cover.

Rabbit Fur Coat is the first solo album released by Jenny Lewis and the The Watson Twins on CD on 2006-01-24. The album mixes indie folk rock and alternative country.

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.
