The Rentals: Lost In Alphaville
Buy! - (Polyvinyl)
The first official Rentals album in 15 years from former Weezer bassist Matt Sharp & co. is a solid return-to-form of catchy New Wave pop. Sharp surrounds himself with some high-powered talent, including The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney on drums, Ozma’s Ryen Slegr on guitar and Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of Lucius on backing vocals. All of these songs first appeared in different form on the four EPs that were a part of The Rentals’ 2009 multimedia project Songs About Time. 8/22/2014 - Don Yates
