The Rentals – Lost in Alphaville

In Limbo

The Rentals have always been an amalgamation: a band cobbled together from members of other bands, with a lineup that changed with each album, centered around frontman Matt Sharp, formerly the bassist of Weezer in their earlier days. Sharp left Weezer after Pinkerton (1996), and focused on the Rentals, releasing first Return of the Rentals (1995), and then 1999’s Seven More Minutes, which was about time he spent in Spain with a significant other. But the Rentals dissipated for several years after that album, coming back together in 2005 to release some smaller projects, like the multimedia Songs About Time (2009). Lost in Alphaville is the band’s third album and the first full-length since 1999, and it’s got a shiny new lineup to match: Patrick Carney of the Black Keys, Ryen Slegr of Ozma, Lauren Chipman of Section Quartet, and Holly Laessig and Jess Wolfe of Lucius on vocals.
