Album history

The album marks the return of the band following individual solo projects. On January 24th, 2006, Jenny Lewis released "Rabbit Fur Coat" while Blake Sennett released "Sun, Sun, Sun" with The Elected.

The album was produced by the band with Jason Lader and Mike Elizondo. [ [http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/article/news/43379-rilo-kiley-reveal-iblacklighti-tracklist-us-release-date Rilo Kiley Reveal "Blacklight" Tracklist] Pitchfork Media] The first single to be released from the album was "The Moneymaker". [ [http://www.rilokiley.net/viewtopic.php?t=11815 RKNet [rilokiley.net Rilo Kiley multimedia and information ] ] The second single will be "Silver Lining."

Several tracks from "Blacklight" were leaked in advance of the album's official release date. On August 17, 2007, the band started streaming the whole album on their MySpace page.

The album's jewel case is tinted purple, reminiscent of a blacklight. The album's covers and inlays were designed by Lewis and Pierre de Reeder, with photography by Autumn de Wilde. The liner notes do not feature any song lyrics.

The band's first official major label debut features a number of guests musicians, including Jackson Browne, Alex Greenwald of Phantom Planet and James Valentine and Mickey Madden from Maroon 5. However, the album credits do not state on which songs the guests appear.

"Under the Blacklight" debuted at number 22 on the U.S. Billboard 200, selling about 27,000 copies in its first week.

On September 25, 2007, Rilo Kiley appeared on Late Night with Conan O'Brien to perform "Dreamworld".

"Breakin' Up" was heard at the end of the Grey's Anatomy season 4 episode "Forever Young".

"The MoneyMaker" was used as the background music in promotional spots for Fox Network's "Canterbury's Law."

"Dreamworld" was the first Rilo Kiley song to become popular in Russian Federation. In November 2007 it was added to the playlist of Maximum, one of the most popular stations in Russia.


"Blacklight" tells a dark story. It is "an album written about Los Angeles' sketchy side ... of characters starving for fame and fortune". [Laura Leebove, Billboard (June 04, 2008), [http://www.billboard.biz/bbbiz/search/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1003812274 "Rilo Kiley / June 2, 2008 / New York (Terminal 5)"] It received generally positive reviews from the media. The album received many Fleetwood Mac comparisons.

However, the LP received mixed reviews from fans. [ [http://www.metacritic.com/music/artists/rilokiley/undertheblacklight Metacritic] ]

This album was #8 on "Rolling Stone"'s list of the Top 50 Albums of 2007. [ROBERT CHRISTGAU, DAVID FRICKE, CHRISTIAN HOARD, ROB SHEFFIELD (December 17, 2007). [http://www.rollingstone.com/news/story/17601851/the_top_50_albums_of_2007/4 "The Top 50 Albums of 2007"] "Rolling Stone". Retrieved 2007-12-20]

The "January/February 2008" issue of Blender Magazine named "Under the Blacklight" the tenth best album of 2007, referring to it as "an album of classically sleek, apocalyptic '70s L.A. coke-rock, in the fine Fleetwood Mac and Steely Dan tradition."
