Albert Hammond Jr – “Rude Customer”

Chris DeVille | September 26, 2013 - 3:42 pm

Albert Hammond Jr has been clean and sober for four years, but the Strokes guitarist just recently opened up to the general public about his struggles with addiction, so his upcoming AHJ EP feels a little like a comeback vehicle (as opposed to a Comedown Machine). And wouldn’t you know it, lead single “Rude Customer” sounds a lot like a Strokes song, rife with incessant high-range guitar work, mechanistic rhythms and shrugging, swaggering vocals. Hear it below.

AHJ is out 10/8 on Julian Casablancas’ Cult Records.
