It’s been a while since I’ve been interested in ‘new’ music from Weezer…
For whatever reason I might be able to give, I haven’t really kept up with Weezer.
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Weezer. In fact, one of my bucket list items in life is to form a cover band that only plays Weezer and Toadies songs and call it, “My Name is Tyler”. Side note: If you’re a musician in the Austin, Texas area and want to help me check this off my list, PLEASE LET ME KNOW!
Anyway – I was on Twitter recently and saw a tweet from my buddy that he was just now listening to the ‘new’ Weezer album. I thought to myself, “I had no clue that there was a new Weezer album” so I looked it up on my Google Play Music account.
Sure enough, I found it and started streaming. Unlike some of my disappointments with their other ‘recent’ albums, I am really digging this one. From the beginning of track 1, it feels and sounds like vintage Weezer. It isn’t my favorite album (Pinkerton still holds #1 for me) from Weezer but it’s a solid offering that is definitely worth purchasing or, at the very least, streaming from Google/Spotify/Apple/etc.
Below is my favorite track from the album and is also the first track. Let me know what you think by tweeting at me, @joshuasteubing !
