Tube: North Greenwich If enthusIasm for making music was all that was required to have hits, Juliette Lewis would be bigger than u2. after quitting a career as one of hollywoods hottest actresses six years ago to front rock band the Licks, Lewis sidestepped the sneers aimed at other actors-turned-singers thanks to a fiery passion for performing that saw her hurl herself into the crowd at gigs and forgo the glamour of her previous life for lengthy tours of tiny venues. eight months after disbanding the Licks and returning to acting, Lewis has recorded a new album, terra Incognita, formed a new band, the new Romantiques, and can barely contain her excitement. Before I even ask a question, she begins babbling about her musics haunting, beautiful, dangerous new direction. frequently, Lewis sounds as out-there as mallory Knox, her crazed character in natural Born Killers. When she describes the song suicide Dive Bombers as simultaneously vulnerable and cyni- cal metaphors that poured from my guts during a night out with no end in mexico its anyones guess what shes on about. still, judging by the songs on Lewiss myspace, terra Incognita, due out in October, is both intensely personal and sonically extreme, the latter thanks partly to producer Omar Rodriguez- Lpez of mars Volta. Critical acclaim looks likely, but not even Lewis is expecting a hit. Im not a radio artist, she insists. Id rather answer to my inner muse than any record label, no matter how little money it makes me. I gave up the only job Id known for 15 years for this and, yes, its terrifying, but its also fantastic. money may explain the return to acting -- Lewis has several films due for release. In the first, Whip It!, she players a roller derby girl alongside Drew Barrymore and ellen Page. Its the first time Ive had to promote a film and an album at the same time, says Lewis. I dont have to tell you which one Ill enjoy more.
