Part one of the Rentals’ proposed three-part Songs About Time project dropped this month with The Story of a Thousand Seasons EP, and with it a preorder for the whole shebang. 2009 finds the Rentals at their slimmest -- Jamie Black, Lauren Chipman, Dan Joeright and Matt Sharp, with Pixies alum Joey Santiago guesting on “Song of Remembering,” are all that remain from the band’s reunion on 2007’s The Last Little Life EP. It’s fitting, in that Thousand Seasons is easily the most stripped-down Rentals release. Mellow and pretty, it downplays most of the Rentals' previous strengths. It’s not nearly as synth-driven and the melodies are colder. And yet, The Story of a Thousand Seasons works.
