Julian Pensacola

Julian Casablancas + The Voidz kept their tour of pre-SXSW semi-secret shows rolling along last night with a stop at The Handlebar in Pensacola, Florida. And while the New Orleans stop yielded lots of intriguing tidbits and comical groupie tweets, the Pensacola stop has produced our first chance to actually hear more than a brief snippet of a new Julian joint. “Ego” is an aggressive new wave song that seems to weave every thread in Casablancas’s discography into something monstrous. Watch fan-made video below.

Julian Casablancas + The Voidz will release an album later this year on Cult Records.

  1. YES. ROCK.

  2. WE GET IT JULIAN YOU ARE REALLY COOL AND REALLY TALENTED I HAD ALREADY PLANNED ON BUYING AN OLD-SCHOOL HOUSTON BASKETBALL JACKET LATER THIS AFTERNOON BEFORE WATCHING THIS VIDEO GODDAMMIT THAT WAS SO GOOD

    Ahem, excuse me… felt like I was 12 years old again watching Take It Or Leave It on Letterman. As you can probably guess, I am moderately excited for Julian’s latest artistic endeavor.

  3. It is an indisputable OBJECTIVE FACT that if J-Cas had been able to maintain a firm hold on the direction/sound of the strokes, their last albums (which were really good) would have been fucking great. Imagine Phrazes for the young through a strokes lens. There’s a reason people love that album so much, and that the high points hit as high as a goddamn kilimanjaro – the J-Cas effect.

    Also how did he get 1980′s John Oates to play guitar?

  4. The guy must be immortal because he still looks 23. Julian, Pharrell…what deal with the devil did you two sign?

    (Also, this video has me so so excited for the album.)

  5. remember how pitchfork gave phrazes a 5-point-something? pffft, clueless.

    • off-topic, but i wonder if pitchfork’s ever considered doing away with their rating scale. they stopped publishing negative track review, why not go the whole 9 and do away with the reductive number rating that can ruin/launch an up and coming band’s career?

  6. “JULIAN CASABLANCAS + THE VO…” This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by [Merlin] Essential Music.

    Boo.

  7. Dammit, J-Cas. I’ll take all the release dates you got.

  8. fuck…i decided to wait a day to hear/watch this…and the old youtube/music site clip bullshit bites me in the ass, would be NICE if a certain website could at least swap an audio version for the video??

  9. hey JC, if you’re out there, “I Like the Night” for first single b-side. I’ll buy 20 copies and pass them out at random locations throughout DC.
