Listen to the New Rilo Kiley, Be a Critic for LAist

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Rilo Kiley played their first concert in two years the other day and LAist was there. Rilo Kiley is now streaming their new cd Under the Blacklight on their Myspace this weekend, and here we are telling you about it.

But we're sure that there's more new music that we should be telling the kids about.

And we're pretty sure that you might be holding on to that information that we need so badly.

Or, perhaps, you have a Mr. Knowitall friend/enemy/brother/sister who runs around spewing off all that knowledge and needs a place to channel all that nerdiness.

Rilo Kiley's new record is the perfect way for you or your friends and enemies to show off how great they are at reviewing cds. And those are the people who should be using this great platform which is LAist to spread the good news.

So listen to the free stream, write down what you think of it, email it to thelaist @ with the subject header My Rilo Kiley Review and if it's good we will post it and make you an LAist cd reviewer and we will hook you up with new music to review.

Sometimes things were meant to be.
