Is Acid Tongue FADER 35 coverstar Jenny Lewis' Jenny Family Band moment? We were kind of hoping it would be after seeing the lineup of friends and family scheduled to appear in some form on the record, including "Farmer" Dave Scher (yes!), Johnathan Rice, Jonathan Wilson, M. Ward, Elvis Costello, Chris Robinson and Zooey Deschanel. The album comes out September 23rd and to tease it Lewis has released some homemade Youtube videos of her hanging out with Creepy Ben Gibbard and Less Creepy Johnathan Rice. Acid Tongue amounts to a modern day version of David Crosby's If I Could Only Remember My Name, which is pretty exciting, only it replaces Jerry Garcia playing pedal steel guitar with Ben Gibbard sitting in a bathtub and holding a dozen pink balloons.
