The Four EP Seasons Of WEEZER – Let’s Start With Springtime

21 March 2022

Veteran rockers WEEZER want to have fun this year.
They canned 4 new EPs for 2022, each one tied to a
different season. The fun is called SZNZ = Seasons.
Each EP will be released on the first day of each season.

The band say they were inspired by “magic, Pagan myths,
religious rituals, Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, Shakespeare and
more (so much more)
.”

Springtime takes of today so turn up your stereo for EP number one SZNZ: Spring.
Seven sickly sticky tunes, seven instigative ear-pleasers, 7 x Weezer at their peppy
best with pick-me-up choruses and big smiles on their faces.

Welcome to Spring, ladies and gents…

WEEZER – Second New Album Of The Year ‘VAN WEEZER’ Out Today

9 May 2021

Band: WEEZER
Active: 1992–1998, 2000–present
15 albums (so far)

Album: VAN WEEZER – 15th LP

Note 1: The album is dedicated to the late Eddie Van Halen
Note 2: Recordings started in 2019 and a release was planned
for a 15 May 2020 release, but postponed for a year, until next
month.

Released: 7 May 2021 – only 4 1/2 months after
their previous excellent album OK Human.

NME: “After the classical treatments of ‘OK Human’ gelled so well with Rivers Cuomo’s songwriting, the bull-snorting hellchords and squealing solos of ‘Van Weezer’ clash so
hard with his style that the retro metal elements often just feel like slapped-on gimmickry.
While heavy ‘80s rock riffs might often suit Weezer songs, Weezer songs – rarely strutting
battle-cries of sex, sacrifice and boulder-eating testosterone – are generally too sensitive,
smart and surf-friendly to carry them.
” Score: 3/5.

Turn Up The Volume: Heavy guitar rock – the album is a tribute to the late Eddie Van Halen – with a poppy resonance. Works now and then, like on the 3 sickly sticky singles.

Singles: Hero / The End Of The Game / Beginning Of The End

– HERO –

– THE END OF THE GAME –

Veteran Indie Rockers WEEZER Have Their New Guitarless Album ‘OK HUMAN’ Out Now!

31 January 2021

Band: WEEZER (Los Angeles, CA)
Active: Since 1992

Album: OK HUMAN – 14th LP
Released: 29 January 2021

Rolling Stone says: “The approach is a not-so-subtle nod at chamber-pop benchmarks
like Pet Sounds and Let It Be but without the confessional diary entries of the former or the sentimentality of the latter. Instead, Cuomo tempers his natural sense of humor to the mood
of the music and the world in front of him.”
Score: 7/10.

Turn Up The Volume: I never thought Weezer would ever make a full album without any guitar on as producing layers of electrical riffs & licks is what the band has been about for the whole of their career. Do I miss them? No (which I felt, to be honest, only after a couple of spins). Guitars out, violins in. Strings are made for bittersweet symphonies and you get a lot right here. An 8/10 for me.

Single: All My Favorite Songs…
