New Weezer Surfaces
Some new Weezer tracks have surfaced from the bands upcoming “Red Album” with the funny cover. The track “Pork and Beans” has been getting pretty heavy modern/mainstream rock airplay on stations such as KROQ. Many fans hoped this would be a return to the bands Blue Album/Pinkerton sound due to the fuzzed out Fender sound the track had.
Most of these newly surfaced songs however aren’t really even on the same level as “Pork & Beans”. It seems like band leader Rivers Cuomo has been trying to recapture the sound the band had in 1994 for…well…14 years, but to no avail. Working with Rick Rubin doesn’t help matters either, as Rick Rubin is to music as Michael Bay is to film.
Also, its relatively annoying that every Weezer single is the past oh 5 or 6 years seems to reference fame/and or wealth, its really kind of lame. Anyway, don’t take my word for it, judge for yourself…
