20 Fave Rilo Kiley Songs
Updated by Hannah Angst on January 3, 2018
There’s been a death among us — Rilo Kiley has officially, without a doubt, broken up. Even though we all pretty much knew the band was over, this didn’t make the news that Blake Sennet, Pierre de Reeder, Jason Boesel and Jenny Lewis wouldn’t be making music together any easier to bear. Sure, there’s the collection of deep cuts and unreleased tracks, RKives, but that just makes us miss them even more. After all, for a lot of us (certainly for me), Rilo Kiley was the first indie band we truly loved. So, in honor of their amazing career (and because it always feels good to pretend to be a teenager again), we’ve decided to compile a list of our 20 absolute favorite Rilo Kiley songs. Don’t worry, we’ve spared you the specific memories of hook-ups, break-ups and dance parties attached to them. Katie Skau once again impressed us all with the incredible artwork for this playlist.
