Weezer – EWBAITE
Admittedly, I’ve never been a full on Weezer fan. I’ve always liked their songs and enjoyed their albums but I don’t think I’ve ever bought more than one of them. That was until this year.
Somewhere in the last 18 months or so I started following Rivers Cuomo on Facebook and Twitter for his sheer quirkiness and the random things he post. A couple of months back he (and the Weezer pages) started posting clips from the upcoming album; Little clips of sound put together with videos that we’re almost like watching a broken TV, A black & white show or something from The Twiligt Zone
With every clip I found myself wanting to hear more and more of the songs; looking forward to when the next clip was put online to see how different each one was going to be and try to figure out what to expect from the album.
Last Tuesday (July 22nd), A video appeared on the Weezer YouTube channel. The official audio for “Back to the Shack”
I liked the song enough to go online and preorder the album ( from http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/weezer ) straight away. It has that great crunchy distorted guitar sound that I remember from Buddy Holly and Hash Pipe and leaves me wanting to hear a lot more!
Over the last few months I have found myself listening more and more to Weezer and a lot of it is because of this album. Since the clips started showing online I think I’ve pretty much listed to their whole back catalog using spotify and I’m really looking forward to whats coming on ‘EWBAITE’
