We now have music from Tinted Windows, the most controversial band of all-time, or at least it would seem that way based on the vitriolic reaction to the group among bloggers, most of whom hadn't even heard their music yet. The group, comprised of James Iha, Taylor Hanson, Bun E. Carlos and Adam Schlesinger, released its first track to the public today, "Kind Of A Girl."
The song is pure power-pop, which is what I feared when I initially heard the band's lineup. I don't want them to sound like Fountains of Wayne. Hopefully the rest of the record will be a bit more adventurous.
They are signed to S-Curve Records, whose founder/CEO Steve Greenberg first discovered and signed Hanson back in the '90s. The debut record will be release April 21.

Here's a cheesy introduction to the band. They're going for an early '80s kinda vibe:
