What becomes of a band that loses its two claims to fame? For PHANTOM PLANET, those claims were semi-celebrity drummer JASON SCHWARTZMAN ("Rushmore") and the title-track tie-in ("California") to a hip, "hot" show ("The O.C."). But Schwartzman's gone Hollywood. And "The O.C." sleeps with the fishes. So, what's a band to do?
Just keep releasing albums, apparently. After 2004's uninspired detour to STROKES-ville, ALEX GREENWALD & Co. are back with RAISE THE DEAD -- a slightly more inspiring collection to help you spring into summer....
