If You Like Rilo Kiley, Then Listen To…

As I’ve made very clear here on the WKNC blog (and many other places), Rilo Kiley takes the cake for my favorite band of all time. Jenny Lewis and Blake Sennett struck gold when they wrote together. So, I figured they would make a great installment of my “if you like… then listen to…” series that I’ve been doing here on the blogosphere.

If you’re not familiar with this series, I make a playlist of songs and artists that I think someone would enjoy if they like a certain artist/album. I’ve done it with Fiona Apple, “folklore” by Taylor Swift and “Punisher” by Phoebe Bridgers thus far.

Without further ado, here are fifteen songs you should check out if you’re a fan of Rilo Kiley.

  • “Plea F
  • “Plea From a Cat Named Virtute” — The Weakerthans
  • “Kokomo, IN” — Japanese Breakfast
  • “Wrapped Up In Books” — Belle & Sebastian
  • “Cracked LCD – Live in Sofia” — Ladytron
  • “Why Can’t I?” — Liz Phair
  • “Madonna” — Snail Mail
  • “The Things We Did and Didn’t Do” — The Magnetic Fields
  • “Elevator Love Letter” — Stars
  • “Temporarily Blind” — Built To Spill
  • “Heavy” — Tegan and Sara
  • “Another Travelin’ Song” — Bright Eyes
  • “Summersong” — The Decemberists
  • “Basement Apt.” — Sarah Harmer
  • “Like U Crazy” — Mates of State
  • “Come Back Margaret” — Camera Obscura

As always, you can stream this playlist on Spotify.

Happy Listening,
