The Voyager

by Jenny Lewis

Released on Warner Bros.

The Voyager is the third album from former Rilo Kiley frontwoman Jenny Lewis and continues her rich vein of form.

This is a blend of bittersweet yet uplifting songs that while they deal with some dark subject matters such as the death of her father and the break-up of her former band come across in a positive way, a fact that's entirely down to Lewis's sweet and powerful voice.

First single 'Just One Of The Guys' (produced by Beck and with a funny video starring amongst others Anne Hathaway) is a dreamy and catchy song and will certainly be a hit live while other highlights include 'Love U Forever' and 'Slippery Slopes'. 

One of the year's best.
