Singer/Songwriter Jenny Lewis, formally of Rilo Kiley (and contributing vocals of Postal Service– we might add) is coming clean in her new single track titled, “Completely Not Me”.
In this celebratory song of rebirth-produced by Rostam Batmanglij of Vampire Weekend– Lewis lays bare her story as she reminisces of “a night back in June” when things went a little crazy.
Lewis’s voice is velvety and playful as she demonstrates her vulnerability in the form of raw high notes, and pulls through self assuredly. Lewis confesses her sins in a way that makes it easy for us to forgive her in this upbeat and almost choral-sounding tune- not to mention the girl sure can strum a guitar! You’re gonna want this track on your playlist in time for the next sunny day…think windows down, wind in your hair.
The song, which has been recently featured on the 3rd season premier of popular HBO series Girls- is included in the shows second soundtrack titled Girls Volume 2: All Adventurous Women Do…’ along with some other amazing singles by the likes of M. Ward, Beck, and Lily Allen to name a few. (scroll down for the whole playlist)

Aubrey Mascali is wanna-be fairy trapped in a human body who is intrigued by tiny things and collections of nature stuffs. She enjoys rainy days with a nice cup of tea and cuddling with her dog Nemo. Currently living and attending school at UGA in Athens GA, you can usually find her doing cliche townie things like thrifting for vintage dresses, walking through the local farmers market, and drinking mimosas at brunch. Aubrey’s keen on meeting new people and hearing their stories. If she were a color, she hopes it would be pink, and if she were music she’d want it to sound like Architecture in Helsinki on a good day and Grimes on a weird day. In her capacity as an art student, she enjoys taking photos, painting, weaving behind a loom or spending countless hours doing five year old art projects like gluing rocks to paper. She is currently working on her thesis exhibition which will be on view at the Lamar Dodd School of art in May 2015.
