Rilo Kiley (also released as The Initial Friend EP) is the debut album by Rilo Kiley. Despite having a runtime of well over thirty minutes, it is considered an EP (extended play) and not an official full album.
Some of the songs were recorded at Blake's house, while others were done in various studios, such as Sound City Studios and Cello Studios. Early demos of some of the songs were financed by Dave Foley and recorded at Sandbox Recording Studio on May 2, 1998.
The album's cover design was taken from the final book in John Fante's Arturo Bandini series, "Dreams from Bunker Hill", published in 1982.
