Rentals, The

Lost In Alphaville

Polyvinyl

NOW AVAILABLE ON VINYL!!! Lost In Alphaville is the long awaited and highly anticipated followup to THE RENTALS’ landmark albums Return of the Rentals and Seven More Minutes. When listening to Lost In Alphaville for the first time, one can’t help but be stoked by the perfect amalgamation of the sonic components: the dense wall of RYAN SLEGR (OZMA) punishing guitars, the primal smack of PATRICK CARNEY’s (BLACK KEYS) drums, MATT SHARP’s (WEEZER) driving, distorted bass and thick buzz of saturated Moog synthesizers—all tempered by HOLLY LAESSIG’s & JESSICA WOLFE’s (LUCIUS) beautifully lush voices and LAUREN CHIPMAN’s (THE SECTION QUARTET) elegant string arrangements serving as an extremely rich foundation for the layers and layers of Sharp’s detached, voyeuristically breathy vocals. Sharp created a wall of sound so dense and powerful with arrangements that several songs on the album exceed 200 individually recorded tracks. Lost In Alphaville is a true sonic achievement, The Rentals’ best album by a mile, a blissfully righteous storm of broken-up guitars, buzz-saw synthesizers, brutally, barbaric rhythms which crumble and crackle against a wash of strings, male and female voices—all blending into 10 perfectly formed pop songs. Not only have The Rentals completely surpassed their first two albums, but Sharp just might be putting forward the best work of his entire career. (STREET DATE - 9/09/2014)
