The Rentiers is a name for whatever kind of music Joel Tannenbaum (Plow United, Ex Friends) feels like playing, and whoever he feels like playing it with. In theory this could meananything, like a record of calypso standards played by Joel, a disgraced Russian astronaut and a bonobo. In practice however, so far, it has primarily meant Mikey Erg (The Ergs!), Anika Pyle (Chumped), and a revolving cast of producers/arrangers that has included Seth Kauffman (Floating Action), Tyler Pursel (Gym Class Heroes) and Jesse Miller (Lotus). In 2014, after two decades on and off in DIY punk and indie pop bands, Joel finally gave up on anything ever working out the way it was supposed to. He decided from there on out to ignore all of the rules -written and unwritten- about how to be in a band and how to make a record. The Rentiers is what that sounds like. It sounds pretty good.
