Fountains of Wayne‘s fourth studio album, their first since 2003′s excellent Welcome Interstate Managers, is due out on April 3rd. Titled Traffic and Weather, on first spin it sounds excellent with several insanely catchy tunes that really stand out for me as certain future stars of summer mixtapes for me.
I dismissed Fountains of Wayne when they first hit the scene (I don’t know why) but lately I have been giving them a well-deserved second chance and I am loving their fetching pop sound and above-par songwriting.
