    Discover Music Project: Episode 65

    DMP has been on an unplanned hiatus lately, but we're back now and have many more episodes planned for 2015 and beyond! The revival starts with Jonny and frequent co-host Taylor presenting the varied and surprising music of Jenny Lewis. We first discovered her as an actress, but she is far more impressive as a singer and writer of songs that balance honesty, sadness, and defiance, often all at once. This retrospective covers her career through stints with Rilo Kiley and The Postal Service, but much of our favorite material comes from just last year. It's a good bet that Jenny Lewis will be making great music for a very long time to come, so we hope this episode can be your primer, or maybe just a refresher on why she is a musical force.

    1. Head Underwater (The Voyager)
    2. She's Not Me (The Voyager)
    3. Nothing Better (Give Up -- with The Postal Service)
    4. Silver Lining (Under the Blacklight -- with Rilo Kiley)
    5. A Man / Me / Then Jim (More Adventurous -- with Rilo Kiley)
    6. Rise Up With Fists!! (Rabbit Fur Coat -- with The Watson Twins)
    7. Acid Tongue (Acid Tongue)
    8. Sing a Song for Them (Acid Tongue)
    9. Slippery Slopes (The Voyager)
    10. Just One of the Guys (The Voyager)
    11. A Better Son/Daughter (The Execution of All Things -- with Rilo Kiley)

    Karl, Jonny, Mike, and Stan put a cap on 2014 with this huge episode.  Packed with movies, this BOP really satisfies.  Karl takes the reigns with Into the Woods, Jonny discusses The Gambler, Mike tells us why Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and Stan ponders the morality of Tombstone.  All these and many, many more!

    Next they hold a mirror to society with Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing.  Do they all agree that it's his masterpiece, or will they...oh, please...of course they agree!  But it's an epic discussion of a film that sadly remains timely.  This is one episode you do not want to miss!
