Anyone that’s charted the success of Jenny Lewis’s solo career in recent years could have seen this coming, but still, these comments by Blake Sennett, the group’s guitarist, on the breakup are pretty interesting: “I just felt like there was a lot of deception, disloyalty, greed and things I don’t really want to submit myself to. I had related that frustration to music but I just thought, ‘I’m not going to put myself in that position again,’ so I said, ‘Fuck that, I can’t do this anymore.'”
The good news is the band might release a two-disc, 40-song compilation of unreleased material. For my money, the group’s best album will always be More Adventurous. And though “Portions of Foxes” isn’t the groups best song, it’s certainly the one song I always crank up to 11 with the windows rolled down in the car.
