November 2017 Alternative ROTM - Weezer - Pacific Daydream
Pacific Daydream is the eleventh studio album by American rock band Weezer in 25 years. The secret to their longevity isn't that big of a secret, rather a must needed component in today's musical landscape, reinventing themselves to stay relevant.
That’s certainly the case with Pacific Daydream, out Oct. 27 on Atlantic and heralded by “Feels Like Summer” (No. 2 on Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart and No. 4 on Rock Airplay). With a few power chords in the mix, it’s a solid retort to those wondering what “rock” means in 2017. That song predated the Pacific Daydream sessions, but producer Butch Walker (Fall Out Boy, Taylor Swift) extended the contemporary vibe by recording the songs in modular bits.
