Billboard Hot 100 Fest: On Sale Now! With Skrillex, Justin Bieber, The Weeknd and Nicki Minaj!
Two years later, with another Rilo Kiley album (More Adventurous) in the vault, Sennett resumed things with the Elected. Sun, Sun, Sun, a collection of summery pop/rock songs that evoked the West Coast, marked the band's second release for Sub Pop in 2006. Jenny Lewis released her first solo record that same year, and Rilo Kiley issued one final album -- their major-label debut, 2007's Under the Blacklight -- before taking the longest hiatus of the band's career. Sennett quit music during the interim and focused on cinema instead. While working on a script for his own short film, Jason Cupp (who'd mixed Sun, Sun, Sun several years prior) convinced Sennett to agree to an impromptu recording session, which wound up yielding several new songs. Inspired, Sennett resurrected the Elected, shuffled its lineup, signed with Vagrant Records, and released the band's third album, 2011's Bury Me in My Rings. ~ Andrew Leahey, Rovi
