Hipsters United Blog: Tinted Windows crack open plans for new album

Posted by susan in news, tinted windows.
Tinted Windows—the supergroup featuring Taylor Hanson backed by former Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha, Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne, and Bun E. Carlos of Cheap Trick—all but disappeared from the music scene after a concert in Tokyo eighteen months ago. Will that go down as the band’s final act?
The current calendar year has scattered the Tintslike dust on the wind: Iha has toured with A Perfect Circle, Schlesinger with the Fountains, Carlos with northern Illinois supergroup Candy Golde, and, uhm, Taylor with Hanson. On the web, TintedWindowsMusic.com now redirects to myspace.com/TintedWindows, and the band hasn’t tweeted since that January 2010 tour wrapped. :tumbleweed:
Yet it seems the band members have left the door open for more collaboration. Late last year Schlesinger said he “had some more songs” for the group. And back in March, Carlos suggested that the band might rendezvous again this fall. Now, Hanson, doing the press rounds for his namesake band’s fall tour, has told the San Francisco Examiner that he and Schlesinger have begun preliminary work on a second Tinted Windows album, saying “there’s definitely some brewing tuneage.” However, both Hanson and Fountains of Wayne are on tour through November.
Taylor & Adam are working on songs for new TW album.

Supergroup Candy Golde mines rich vein of experience.
When bandleader Nicholas Tremulis went prospecting for treasure in the rich musical mines of Chicago, he struck Candy Golde.
This mother lode of talent includes Cheap Trick drummer Bun E. Carlos, Wilco bassist John Stirratt, keyboardist Mark Greenberg and singer-guitarist Rick Rizzo, both of Eleventh Dream Day, and singer-guitarist Tremulis of the Nicholas Tremulis Orchestra.
An all-star outfit such as this is too commonly called a “supergroup,” but the precious handful of tunes on Candy Golde's self-titled mini-album justifies that overused label.
