Since The Rentals have opted to release a song off their upcoming album bi-weekly leading up to its release, I've skipped a few songs to avoid this becoming a Rentals fan blog. "Invasion Night" sucked me in enough that I feel the need to bring it to you despite the risk. "Invasion Night" has this bizarro retro-future sound that we want when we listen to The Rentals, but it doesn't sound like The Return of... or anything else we've heard from them before. If their 90's output was was the future sounded like twenty to thirty years ago, this is what that imagined future would sound like now. It's space age chic, but with some killer fuzzy guitars and an intensity The Rentals don't normally showcase.
You can listen to "Invasion Night" below. Q36, the upcoming album from The Rentals, will be out June 2. You can pre-order it here. For more on The Rentals, check out their website.
