"[A]n exquisitely sad album of country-tinged dream pop..." - Rating: B
This is the new project from Blake Sennett, co-singer/songwriter of Rilo Kiley. "Me First" includes the help of Mike Mogis (Saddle Creek Records partner and producer extraordinaire), Jimmy Tamborello (Postal Service, Dntel), Jason Boesel (Rilo Kiley), Daniel Brummel (Ozma), Orinda Fink (Azure Ray), Jenny Lewis (Rilo Kiley, Postal Service), Schmed (Arlo), and many others. It incorporates everything from lap steel to melodic, glitchy electronics. A compelling, cinematic framework for Sennett's exemplary songwriting.
