Since Weezer or better known as The Blue Album, the Los-Angeles band keeps the genuine ideas coming and adapting to the new generations of music lovers and the big events of today’s world. On ‘Grapes Of Wrath,’ Rivers Cuomo and his friends take over a new reality in our lives. Who wants a virtual zoom brainstorming and work meeting?
America’s Funniest Videos
Weezer has such big brains. From the Mary Tyler Moore Show inspiration on ‘Buddy Holly’ to the ceremonial marriage on ‘Island in The Sun,’ we can’t get over our classic Weezer tracks and their original and sometimes weird cinematography. On their 14th album, OK Human, they evolved in musicality bringing more thoughtful and orchestral instrumentation in a fun way. Meditating? Gardening? But you are stuck in a meeting? No problems if you are Rivers Cuomo and the big happy bunch!
What to do in a meeting?
Meetings, especially for work can be boring don’t you think? Since the pandemic, we have to live more and more on these camera-led appointments and sometimes it’s hard to not show our exhausted and discouraged face. Weezer has the solution and thumbs up to it! Put a steady picture in front of your camera and relax! People would just think your screen is frozen (big lol!) or just keep playing ‘Grapes Of Wrath’ overs and overs!
Time To Drift Off
Keep calm and read! Sort of. Referencing many books in the song, Weezer knows their classics! From John Steinbeck in the title track, to George Orwell in 1984 and Virginia Wolf’s Mrs. Dalloway, the song is about escaping the real world in stories, just drifting off the routine. No wonder why they blast “I just don’t care, I just don’t care, Rock my Audible, Headphone, Grapes of Wrath” in the chorus sticking this selfie picture on his webcam, putting the earplugs on, and meditating. Take time for yourselves while you can, it’s time to cheer up. Watch the video directed by Brendan Walter and Jasper Graham below.
Just a quick reminder that Weezer is doing a special livestream of their OK Human album on April 16th for one day only. Hurry and grab your tickets here! Exciting times are coming too! After all the amazing cover songs they did on the Weezer (Teal album), they’ll release their renditions of Van Halen. Van Weezer is coming in May, sit tight!
