Fountains of Wayne tells stories with their songs. They can make the Tappan Zee Bridge seem romantic and the Department of Motor Vehicles worth chronicling.

The band was founded in the mid-nineties by Adam Schlesinger and Chris Collingwood. They've taken time for side projects and bands, but they got the band back together this year to release "Traffic and Weather" and regale us with more tales of ordinary slobs like you and me set to a perfect pop melodies.

Mary Lucia met up with Adam and Chris in The Current studio.

Songs performed: "Hackensack," "Someone to Love," and "Red Dragon Tattoo"
