Actors Who Sing: Juliette Lewis

BAND Punk quintet Juliette & the Licks

ALBUM You’re Speaking My Language, 2005 (EW Grade: C)

SOUNDS LIKE… Patti Smith caterwauling over danceable, Blondie-esque beats and Ramones-influenced riffs.

THE LOWDOWN Though Lewis seems passionate about her music and has a crazy live show (complete with Iggy Pop-like dancing and skin-tight costumes), EW’s Marc Weingarten says the former Cape Fear star has ”an unintentionally amusing movie-star ego… with all of the requisite posturing and nary a trace of self-aware wit.”

MEMORABLE LYRIC ”Money in my pocket/ Settin’ fire to a second-rate dream/ Cash it or check it/ You gotta change that dead red light to mean green.” (”Money in My Pocket”)

DOWNLOAD THIS The title track, though far from original, is somewhat catchy.
