rilo kiley - the good that won't come out

another wave of melancholy and i'm listening to rilo kiley.

a canned beat, with a dancy guitar lead open up 'the good that won't come out,' a testimonial to lost potential. being a child star, jenny lewis doesn't sing with empathy, (no one ever said stars were always happy). add a slide guitar and throw down a rambling rhythm section in the end; you've got a hard hitting, passionate and honest song.

Isn't this a cover of a 2 Live Cru song? I could have sworn Luther Campbell wrote this...wait a minute, is that the chick from "The Wizard"? This is amazing!! I wonder if my restraining order is still in effect...
