The self-titled debut by Fountains of Wayne hints at what was to come while still struggling to sound original and find their voice.

Author & Special Guests

We gave our Patreon subscribers four album options that were released in October 1996, and they decided we should revisit the self-titled debut by Fountains of Wayne. All the hallmarks of power pop are present - tight songwriting, big vocal hooks with guitar riffs to match, and the occasional harmony to sweeten the sound - from the band that would go on to write the massive single ‚ÄúStacy‚Äôs Mom.‚ÄĚ
