The Rentals- Friends of P.

This song is from The Rentals’ 1995 debut album The Return of the Rentals.  The band, formed by former Weezer bassist Matt Sharp, released their first full length album in 15 years, Lost in Alphaville, last August.  The video below is the first track off that album and takes place around downtown Los Angeles.

The Rentals are on tour and are playing the El Rey Theater Friday June 5th.
