Staticblog Is Really Damn Happy About: Tinted Windows
Bun E. Carlos, James Iha, Taylor Hanson and Adam Schlesinger are Tinted Windows.
Anyone with great affection for power-pop should be happy about Tinted Windows, a supergroup of sorts featuring Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne and Ivy, James Iha of The Smashing Pumpkins and A Perfect Circle, Taylor Hanson of Hanson and Bun E. Carlos of Cheap Trick.
This new band’s debut comes out April 21 on S-Curve, and while we’ve all been burned by supergroups before, I will never discount anything Schlesinger toplines — the man is one of the most gifted songwriters working today. Furthermore, Taylor Hanson gets another shot — it’s easy to dismiss Hanson out of hand for the band’s late-’90s bubblegum image, but he’s a strong singer and I think having his vocals on Schlesinger’s songs has the potential for genius.
As soon as music or video arrives, it will be in this space.
UPDATE: Ryan at Oklahoma Rock posted a video segment from an alleged music show (I agree, Ryan, it looks like a big fake that Schlesinger probably dreamed up as a tribute to TV shows he saw in his Long Island youth) that showcases a couple of Tinted Windows songs. They sound exactly as you might expect, which is pretty awesome. Here ‘Tis:
