Johnathan Rice – Further North

The Man!

Ok, so I know Johnathan Rice’s latest release “Further North” (9/10/2007) is about 8 months old, but since I saw this guy live in December, it has taken 9 spots out of my “Top 25 Most Played” in iTunes. The album is the sophomore release from the beau of Rilo Kiley’s Jenny Lewis, who shares the mic with Johnathan on the duet “End of the Affair”. Each song stronger than the next, the album opens up with Johnathan attacking his 6 string with a vigor not heard since the early days of R.E.M., and ends with the crooked love song “It Is Best To Keep It All Inside”. Please do yourself a favor and get to Johnathan Rice, and fast.

Highlights Include, “Further North”, “End Of The Affair”, “It Couldn’t Be Me”, and Johnathan as Roy Orbison incarnate on, “What Am I Going To Do”.
