The Rentals

The Rentals were the new wave-influenced project of singer/songwriter Matt Sharp, former bassist for power pop favorites Weezer. Born in Arlington, VA, on September 22, 1969, Sharp co-founded Weezer in 1992, and in the months to follow, the band emerged as one of the most popular up-and-coming acts on the Los Angeles club scene; their self-titled debut LP appeared on Geffen two years later, becoming a major hit thanks their smash single and video "Buddy Holly." During the spring of 1994, Sharp mounted the first Rentals studio session. Assembling a roster including Weezer drummer Pat Wilson, that dog. violinist Petra Haden, vocalist/keyboardist Cherielynn Westrich, and guitarist Rod Cervera, subsequent dates yielded the group's 1995 debut, Return of the Rentals, which notched a hit with the infectious "Friends of P." Sharp returned to Weezer to record the band's acclaimed 1996 follow-up, Pinkerton, but announced his exit from the lineup in February 1998; the second Rentals album, Seven More Minutes, followed a year later. After a six-year hiatus, Sharp brought back the Rentals in 2005. After touring with Ozma in the summer of 2006, Sharp's group released the EP The Last Little Life in 2007. In December of the same year, the Rentals announced that they would begin recording a new album in 2008. The resulting Songs About Time, a 2009 multimedia project consisting of photographs, short films, and three mini-albums, was made available in a limited-edition deluxe box set in 2010. In April of 2011, the band released Present Resilience: A Benefit Album For the Japanese Relief. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Mia Rudolph from SNL was in The Rentals for brief period also. How bout that!
We watch them open for Smashing Punkins in 1993... Cherielynn is too sexy... No?
I'm pretty surprised I've never heard this group before. not to shabby pandora
Kuroshimo if you like this sound, you may like That Dog, which is half of the rentals, and you may like OZMA.
yeah..... I love Matt Sharp....... a n d That Dog for that matter.
What Cuomo and Sharp did for weezer was golden.
Weezer now.......no t so much.
Its all about the harmonies baby!
matt sharp was weezer, everything after pinkerton just wanst the same.
Can't sing
SHARP AND CUOMO COULD HAVE DONE SOME MAGICAL THINGS TOGETHER - SHAME.
Hahaha. These guys are similar to Cake and the Postal Service, but not Weezer? That is odd. I seriously thought this was Weezer until the girl chimes in on the song "Friends of P".

Still its good though, i like it alot.
when the first album came out, I joined the rentals fan club. (member AAAJ).
if anyone else out there is a fan club member, (and still have your fan club badge) let me know!
Anyone have recommendati o n s for good similar bands (besides the fabulous "The Anniversary" ) ?
YAY!!!!
Aw, how sad 1 for 2 against. Make that 2 for : )

Pee is sterile. There are worse things in the world (cough cough weezer)
Personally, I AM NOT FRIENDS WITH PEE. Pee is waste product, and rather smelly, especially concentrated asparagus pee. Pee is not odoriffic. Some people like to drink pee.

I don't like to drink pee. Not one bit.

The End
The Rentals are by far one of the best bands I've ever heard. I am so glad I discovered them seven years ago. Their music has become a constant in the background of my life.
