Fountains Of Wayne

At the end of last year, NJ guitar pop-troopers Fountains Of Wayne wrote a song about the Passaic River as an unsigned band. Fast forward a few months and FOW are newly minted Yep Roc artists, readying their fifth full-length LP titled Sky Full Of Holes, due for release this summer. “Richie & Ruben” leads the charge, a sunny, character-driven jangle-pop track about a pair of inept knuckleheads with a talent for blowing seed money on questionable enterprises (a bar called Living Hell, a fashion boutique with a kid from FIT who lied about graduating). “Don’t give them a dime … they’re both a little out of their minds.” Surely not inspired by the kinds of charlatans they’ve met while knocking around New Jersey/the music industry. Surely. Download for the price of an email:
