Who are the Watson Twins?

Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins
Rabbit Fur Coat
2006, Team Love

Jenny Lewis
Chandra Watson
Leigh Watson

  • Rise up with Fists/ Paradise
  • You are What you Love/ Fireplace
Jenny Lewis fronts the band Rilo Kiley, famous for their hit Portions for Foxes.  Jenny Lewis is cool for a few reasons.  She was a child actor in the '80s and '90s, and is also part of the Ben Gibbard/ Connor Oberst Indie music scene (Death Cab for Cutie, Bright Eyes, Rilo Kiley, Postal Service).  

I love her voice, and I love the direction this album takes.  Less indie rock star than Rilo Kiley, more of a stripped down folksy country feel, complete with a Traveling Wilburys cover.  There is no producer credit, but I'm assuming since it is on the Team Love label, that Oberst and/or Gibbard functioned as producers.
