The Rentals

Post by tom_cas1 » 10 Mar 2015, 09:49

Well well well, looks like you lucky Americans will get to see The Rentals live this year. They announced a full US tour yesterday. I am very VERY jealous right now.

It's times like these that I really wish I lived in the US. I highly doubt they will come over to England to play shows. I have my fingers crossed of course but still, very unlikely. :(

Who here will be going?

Not a fan, but I used to enjoy "Friends of P." a lot. There's also that Matt Sharp collaboration track wit Damon and Dave, "We Have a Technical" which is nice.

Yep Friends Of P. is a cracking song from a great album. Their debut, Return Of The Rentals. One of my favourite albums. Have you heard their last album Rubi? It was released last year, first since 1999.

No, I haven't listened to any albums. Like I said, I'm not a fan. Maybe I'll give it a shot.

Love Matt Sharp to death, so I'm just glad that The Rentals are doing alright again. Lost In Alphaville is a fantastic album. Sadly, it seems that they're not going overseas, which is a shame for many of us.

I have one Rentals album, but haven't given it much attention. I need to listen more! If I like them, I might consider going to see them in Nashville. Been wanting to make a trip there soon anyway so I can hit some of my favorite record stores, could be a good excuse!

If that album is Return of the Rentals, there's a pretty good chance that you'll fall in love with it. What a record! And let's not forget this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rg5ZkrwZXrI" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Great performance! And yes Return Of The Rentals is outstanding. For those that aren't familiar with it, here are a few highlights:

The Love I'm Searching For: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VzueHYqCM34" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Please Let That Be You: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1leVkgH_xoE" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
These Days: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bVWoxxMzrpY" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

And from their latest album, Lost In Alphaville:

It's Time To Come Home: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2XZcLsyhn8s" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
1000 Seasons: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpAhmT8wxNk" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Thought Of Sound: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBGseqElxTw" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

But each album is outstanding as a whole. Their second album Seven More Minutes less so but still worth a listen, although I'd focus on Return Of The Rentals and Lost In Alphaville.

Got hold (well, downloaded :mrgreen:) of their half-acoustic, half-electric live 1999 album, supporting Seven More Minutes. Some cool performances there, keep in touch if interested.
