The Rentals scored a minor hit with Friend of P, and their debut Return of The Rentals is full of even more radio-friendly singles.

The Rentals have a new album out, so it's the perfect time to revisit their debut album from 1995, Return of The Rentals. The band scored a minor hit with Friend of P, and this debut is full of even more radio-friendly singles, but can the keep the vocal and musical hooks flowing throughout the record with the analog synth, fuzz bass and boy/girl vocal set-up? Tune in to find out, and to hear Jason go on a interface design rant you may or may not want to miss.
