“Richie And Rubin” And “Survival Car” (Live On Fallon) (Video)


    Sky Full of Holes is the first Fountains of Wayne album since 2007’s Traffic and Weather, and the band showed up on Jimmy Fallon’s show last night (Aug. 4) to play “Richie and Ruben” from it. This is a medium paced track that ducks away from the strident power pop the group is best known for, but it’s still wrapped up in that sugary coating that most Fountains of Wayne songs bear. There was even a role for the members of Fallon’s “band bench,” who were clearly instructed to clap along at certain points in the song. As a bonus, the group also performed a web-only version of “Survival Car” from their eponymously titled 1996 debut album (below).
