The Rentals have officially returned, and to those of us who recognize Matt Sharp, not as the guy who left Weezer right before they became shitty, but as one of the true pioneers of what ultimately became the modern-pop-indie-movement, that’s a pretty awesome thing to type.
The song, “Thought of Sound,” off their upcoming LP Lost In Alphaville, sounds pretty much as we’d hope. Equal parts of lady/male singing, melody — and oh the sound of those blaring Moogs. This shit takes me back to the times I actually bought TAPES! Lawd.
So glad to have y’all back. We’re still Friends with P.
