The Strokes – “Call Me Back” Video

The Strokes released Angles almost two weeks ago. As a gift for fans who pre-ordered the album, the band sent out a link to download a video for “Call Me Back.” The clip was created by Albert Hammond Jr., and it’s an uncomplicated video: slow motion film of water dripping down, a woman walking through… More »

Julian Casablancas @ Downtown Palace Theatre, LA 11/6/09

The Stroke’s first solo gigs were in Japan this summer, and Monday’s Spaceland show was a last minute surprise, so while last night was JC’s 4th ever solo show, it was most stateside fans’ first shot to see his synth-pop makeover in person. With elaborate stage backdrops and light-up costumes for their encore, Julian and… More »

Albert Hammond Jr. On Gossip Girl

This week’s Halloween episode was even more nonsensical than usual, so we nearly blocked out its cameo from the 1,400 year-old, anemic ghost of the Strokes’ guitarist. Watch him perform “In Transit” at the opening of Chuck’s speakeasy. More »

New Coldplay – “Glass Of Water” (Live In Antwerp With Albert Hammond, Jr.)

We just acquainted ourselves with “Lost+,” the Prospekt’s March version of “Lost!” with a Jay-Z verse affixed, but less than 24 hours later, here’s “Glass Of Water,” in its live debut. Chris Martin & Co. are accompanied on the track by Stroke Albert Hammond, Jr., the band’s current tour support. Musically, it basically sounds like… More »

There Will Maybe Be A Strokes Album In Not Too Long

NME.com reports Hambone Jr. is on the record saying the Strokes are “definitely figuring out something to do for 2009,” which gives us all about a year to continue stoking the not-actually-real-but-yay-blogs Albert vs. Julian rivalry. More »

New Albert Hammond, Jr. Video – “GfC”

You’ve heard the song, you’ve streamed the album, and now you can simulate dropping acid while having the audio-visual realization that Hambone Jr. is making a case for Top Stroke. Quoth Goldenfiddle: “…now he’s starting to make you look bad, Casablancas.” Pretty much, yeah. More »

New Albert Hammond, Jr. – “GfC”

Now that we have glimpsed Albert Hammond Jr.’s pretty vacant (apartment) album art, we can get to the more substantive business of hearing what the relatively prolific Stroke has in store for his second solo LP. “GfC,” which is the tune’s core chord progression (G-F minor-C, right guys?), is very promising, a quick cut or… More »

Albert Hammond Jr.’s ¿Cómo Te Llama? Album Art

While you were waiting for the Strokes to get bored of looking cool with no place to go, Albert Hammond, Jr. has put together his second solo record.

The Strokes Are Working Out Kinks For LP4, Watching Gossip Girl

It’s been over two years since First Impressions Of Earth, but the Strokes are always fresh in our minds thanks to a neverending parade of covers (Rhymefest, Chris Thile, Howie Beck, Lightspeed Champion, etc.). Plus, Albert Hammond Jr. has recorded two solo albums (Como Te Llama is out this summer) in the hiatus. It’s next… More »

New Albert Hammond, Jr. Video – “Back To The 101″

How is it that even in death Ric Oh-KASS-eck’s favorite Stroke looks better than we ever could in a skinny suit? Here’s the first vid from Albert Hammond, Jr.’s coming out record Yours To Keep. Ways in which it resembles “The Scientist”: a car crash, followed by scenes as a pensive pedestrian. Ways in which… More »
