Not quite the über-group that Dylan and McCartney are planning, but still pretty high-powered, this quartet’s got membership from Cheap Trick, Smashing Pumpkins, and Hanson (remember them?). But since this is power pop, the important component is a Fountains of Wayne member (Adam Schlesinger) who also happens to be a songwriter, especially since good power pop is all about the songs. And songs they’ve got—not quite up to the level of FOW, but much more palatable than Weezer nowadays. With Locksley.
