Album Notes and Credits

Recording information: ARC, Omaha, NE; Bright Street Recorders, North Hollywood, CA.
Photographer: Autumn de Wilde.
Certainly, the title I'm Having Fun Now is a good indication of what the first album by LA lovebirds Jenny Lewis and Johnathan Rice is all about. Lewis may be regarded as one of the finest singer/songwriters of her generation but her ambitions are kept in check here: all she wants to do is have some fun and maybe get some people to pay attention to her longtime boyfriend who has had several attempts at the brass ring - most notably the major-label 2007 Further North, which did get him some play on the OC - but has never managed to grab it. Johnny may be overshadowed by Jenny but that's because she has a professional's knack for grabbing the spotlight even as she's seeming to step away from it. Whenever she's out front, I'm Having Fun Now kicks into gear, its unassuming country-rockers given gas by her natural ease. I'm Having Fun Now is an unforced good time that's of piece with Acid Tongue, carved from its same country-rock, but it's not weighed down by rustic mythology; it substitutes roots for pop flair. Its casualness sometimes surfaces in its tossed-off jokes or sing-song melodies, but that only underscores that Jenny & Johnny are having a good time - and it's a good time that's easy to share. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone - "[T]he record is a model of musical egalitarianism. J&J's vocals blend beautifully throughout -- sweet harmony that makes discord go down easy."
Spin - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "I'M HAVING FUN NOW is all whimsical, tongue-in-cheek cutesiness, but with songs this sugary, it'd be churlish to complain."
Entertainment Weekly (p.73) - "Brought together by a shared love of crisp boy-girl harmonies and ultra-hummable, '60s-inspired melodies, they sound Cracker Jack sweet..." -- Grade: B
Alternative Press - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he two do indeed sound like they're having fun....I'M HAVING FUN NOW is a good time for your ears..."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.98) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "I'M HAVING FUN NOW is a musical meeting of minds, sure, but more significantly it's continuing evidence of Lewis' rapid artistic evolution."
Uncut (magazine) (p.86) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "It doesn't take long to absorb the sherbet rush of this punky confection....Lewis, particularly, seems to revel in the freedom afforded by performing in a combo with no reputation to burn."
