“I don’t think we’re going to threaten the Jonas Brothers,” says James Iha of Tinted Windows‘ self-titled debut, recently released on S-Curve Records. But the power pop generated by the multigenerational band—which also includes Adam Schlesinger (Fountains Of Wayne), Taylor Hanson (Hanson) and Bun E. Carlos (Cheap Trick)—is a teenage dream of catchy choruses and withering walls of guitars befitting the former Smashing Pumpkins guitarist. Iha is guest editing magnetmagazine.com all this week; read our Q&A with him to get a glimpse into the formation of Tinted Windows.
Iha: I love dogs. Crazy about ’em. Man’s best friend is just that—they seemed destined to always be by our side. Whether having a thoughtful walk in the park, mischievously running away with the newspaper or saving a building from being blown up by terrorists, dogs are the best!!
This concludes “James Iha Week” here at magnetmagazine.com. Thanks to James for all of the interesting stuff he covered. Be sure to check out Tinted Windows’ self-titled debut.
