Sky Full of Holes by Fountains of Wayne
Released: Aug 2011
Label: Yep Roc Records
In a culture that worships at the feet of the meteoric rise-and-fall pop star, steady artistic consistency goes unrewarded. This is especially true of Fountains of Wayne, who have dropped some of the best power pop of the '00s. Sky Full of Holes is the most acoustic-flavored release of the group's career. This places the spotlight more squarely on Chris Collingwood and Adam Schlesinger's slyly imaginative songwriting. Perfect example: "Acela," named after the high-speed rail slicing through BosWash, is your typical coming-home tale, yet the imagery put forth is really kind of delicious.
