SZNZ: Autumn

The third installment of Weezer’s SZNZ project is, by Rivers Cuomo’s own description, the dance one. Think The Strokes, Franz Ferdinand, Blondie: bands classified as rock, but whose clean, bright sound feels closer to what we think of as pop. Where else can you hear someone sing about sadomasochism while a string section quotes Vivaldi (“Tastes Like Pain”) or the parable of the Garden of Eden set to the Vegas-ready shuffle of Neil Diamond (“Should She Stay or Should She Go”)? The answer is nowhere. You don’t have to understand the rabbit hole the band has become, but you can’t help but respect its depth.
