Information is coming out in dribs and drabs about Rivers et al's next album. The latest update is a fan-boy's account of a recording session, penned by their weezer.com webmaster, Karl Koch.
"The vibe is healthy, full of dialogue, cooperation, forward thinking and interested experimentation. The sound is definitely Weezer, but not quite like any Weezer I've heard before. Or rather, not like any one style that Weezer has ever tried, but a fresh combination with some new flavors on top.
"It sounds as if the band has grown into a new land that they had previously only skirted around the edges of - a land where arrangements are getting adventurous, where song structures, lengths and feels are given plenty of sunlight and fresh water and allowed to grow into what the songs demand. It sounds really cool. Like an excellent music farm. Or perhaps a food co-op."
Despite those two paragraphs, this writer can't help but feel a little excited. I'm actually setting up a prayer group - it's called 'Face California Every Day At 5pm And Pray This Album Wont Be Another Make Believe'. Feel free to join in.
