Fountains Of Wayne On World Cafe

Fountains of Wayne has been churning out catchy power pop since the mid-'90s. After the singles "Radiation Vibe" and "Sink to the Bottom" put Adam Schlesinger and Chris Collingwood on the national map, the band was catapulted into the mainstream spotlight with its 2003 hit, "Stacy's Mom," which earned them Best New Artist and Best Vocal Performance Grammy nominations.

The group's fifth and latest album, Sky Full of Holes, was released in August. It takes a darker view than Fountains' earlier work, combining the band's trademark power-pop with compelling but catchy cynicism. Hear the band perform songs from the album live during this edition of World Cafe.
