Jenny Lewis – The Voyager

From the opening ‘Head Underwater’ to the closing title track Jenny Lewis has written 10 insanely catchy tunes. Lead single ‘Just One Of The Guys’ is a perfect example of her style that washes over this record in various forms. Acoustic guitars and layered vocals are the main stay with Lewis’ soft voice floating along with the melodies. Mixing themes like being on tour, insomnia and heartbreak Lewis leans towards the quirky and while some of the lyrics are a tad naïve the majority are well written. ‘Slippery Slopes’ is a particular favourite as is closer ‘The Voyager’ where Lewis sings ‘The voyagers in every boy and girl, if you want to get to heaven get out of this world’. Not dissimilar to her previous solo work and that of former band Rilo Kiley ‘The Voyager’ though goes someway to cement Lewis as a leading indie chanteuse.
