Rilo Kiley - The Moneymaker

Okay, this is HOT. Indie Rock Band Rilo Kiley are gearing up to release their 4th album entitled Under The Blacklight on August 21. This is the first album since the band's 2004 release More Adventurous. After that the band members decided to part ways to work on other projects for awhile. Lead vocalist (and former child star) Jenny Lewis released her first solo album Rabbit Fur Coat. The album, a beautiful collection of country tinged acoustic soul music, featured Gospel singing duo The Watson Twins and was hailed by many online and music magazine publications as one of the best indie releases of 2006.

Meanwhile lead guitarist and sometime vocalist Blake Sennett went on to enjoy his own success by forming the band The Elected, with whom he has released two albums so far.

The first single from Under The Blacklight is the funky, infectious (and did I mention Hot?)track, The Moneymaker. The video which officially runs for about 12 minutes features the audition process for the porn stars that will be featured in the actual video (which kinda insinuates that this is not for kids, which is about right). The actual song starts around the nine minute mark, and is shot in the gritty lighting, and old fashioned camera style of 70's era porn.
