The Elected are a band who would cite incredibly disparate influences if you were to ask them (and we didn't...) about whose music might have shaped their record's sound. 'Zine writers are going to have a field day coming up with reference points. Herewith, a few freebies to get started: (1) ""Nilsson's soundtrack to ""Midnight Cowboy,"" given an ambient remix by Aphex Twin."" (2) ""Like the weird sound coming from your radio when one station playing the Zombies' ""Care of Cell 44"" starts to bleed into another station playing moody electronica."" (3) ""Lost, unreleased Sun Studios heartbreak songs from the future.' Me First is the debut release from Rilo Kiley co-singer/songwriter Blake Sennett, and features, in various roles and among others: Mike Bloom, Jason Boesel and Jenny Lewis (both also from Rilo Kiley), Daniel Brummel (from Ozma), Schmed (from Arlo), Orenda Fink (of Azure Ray), and Jimmy Tamborello (The Postal Service/DNTEL). The album was recorded in the spring of 2003 with the help of Mike Mogis (Saddle Creek partner and producer extraordinaire for Bright Eyes, The Faint, et al).
