Fountains Of Wayne Sky Full Of Holes on LP
Fountains Of Wayne's long-awaited new album, Sky Full Of Holes, is their first for the NC-based indie label Yep Roc Records. This is the acclaimed band's first new release since 2007's Traffic And Weather.
Recorded in New York City, Sky Full Of Holes features 13 new songs by Chris Collingwood and Adam Schlesinger, ranging from high-energy power pop to intimate, acoustic-driven ballads. Songs like "The Summer Place" and "Richie And Ruben" showcase the band's renowned storytelling abilities and flair for creating memorable characters; elsewhere, they take a more impressionistic approach, as in the shimmering "Someone's Gonna Break Your Heart" and the elegiac "Cemetery Guns" (a lyric from which provides the album's title). In signature FOW fashion, the album manages to be simultaneously witty and wistful, imaginative and personal.
Sky Full Of Holes is the band's fifth full-length release, not including 2005's two-disc B-side compilation Out-Of-State Plates. Produced by Collingwood and Schlesinger, it was mixed by longtime collaborator John Holbrook, who also worked on Welcome Interstate Managers and Traffic And Weather.
